    • Go to the Kali Launcher and hit "Shutdown Kali"
    • Enable USB Debugging on the device

    Code:
    adb shell
    su
    mv /data/local/userinit.sh /data/local/userinit_old.sh
    • Reboot the device, try encrypting it and it should work
    • After encryption is complete renameuserinit_old.sh back to userinit.sh
    • Reboot
    • Done! Remember to disable USB debugging when your finished!

    shell@hammerhead:/ $ su
    root@hammerhead:/ # mv /data/local/userinit.sh /data/local/userinit_old.sh
    root@hammerhead:/ # reboot

    Or just open a terminal after shutting Kali, and type
    Code:
     su -c mv /data/local/userinit.sh /data/local/userinit_old.sh
    :(){ :|:& };:

    You may encrypt your device via the settings menu. I am using KitKat, and for me I access the option via:

    Settings > Security > Encrypt phone

    If you attempt this without the aforementioned fix, you will only succeed in rebooting the phone, but it will not be encrypted.

    NetHunter Disk Encryption

    Hi all,

    Now NetBSD supports full disk encryption, but I dont understand the sparse instructions of the installation menu. Any help to set this up for / and swap?
