has anyone tried the encrypt phone option?
i was wondering if it slows down the phone when booting up (and presumably decrypting) or if there are any change with the phone's performance?

also - what's the best way of doing a full backup of the phone, apps, rom etc so things can be properly restored if it does slow things?
thanks

No haven't tried it. Let us know if you do :-)

Use your recovery - CWM or TWRP - to take a full nandroid backup.

It *might* slow the phone down, as it has to encrypt and decrypt on the fly. But make a backup and try it, and if you don't like it, you can simply restore the nandroid backup!

Hello. I have an S4 now, and I hardly ever use MoDaCo now. 

Therefore you will receive no replies to any PMs

Tutorial: How To (Officially) Unlock Your Bootloader! (The long way, but which definitely works)

Please, Do not use the HuaweiG300.com Tutorial on how to unlock your bootloader, it is better to unlock it officially with my tutorial!

My Device:

Huawei Ascend G300 (U8815) - Sold!

Samsung Galaxy S4 (Black) - The LTE Version - GT-I9505

(Ignore the links above (if there is one). It's a skimwords (advertising) link and nothing to do with me!)

The ROMS I have used:

Download Blink, a great app that controls the status LED on the G300!

Wait for 5 seconds and then click skip ad! Do not download anything in the ad window, that is not the app!

Did I help you?

If I did, Please press the rep_up1.png button, in the bottom right hand corner of my posts.

If I really helped you, you could also donate to me. Thanks!  :)

I tried to set it but having problems with Stock+ as it just keeps rebooting and asking for pin and doesn't seem to encrypt anything ... oh well! Might try again with a different rom

Some ROMs are not too good with encryption. I would try CM7 and see if that works :)
