Works as advertized This is an excellent program that provides the on the fly encryption it advertizes. However, getting it set up to work properly is, unfortunately quite difficult. It took me 3 or 4 install, setup, test, followed by complete uninstall, cycles before I got it working properly. Setting up busybox properly BEFORE installing Luks is very important. But once you get it working, it works properly. I gave only 4 stars because I think it lacks an important feature, a timeout for auto dismount.
On-the-fly Disk Encryption This is a great app. Creating the encrypted disk/volume takes a long time - several minutes for a 99mb file. FreeOTFE support too. I use TrueCrypt on the PC and MAC, and can't wait until it is available on the Android. This is the next best thing. The only improvement would be if the app could check FIRST to see if there is enough free space available to create the volume. Right now the app will run for 10-15 minutes or just freeze. Overall an excellent app. Thanks!
Needs tweaking on newer androids This is a very useful tool, however on newer android versions there are a number of caveats due to mount namespacing and mount permissions (umask). Choosing a mount point outside of any emulated storage (ie. not in /mnt/sdcard) fixes the first problem, editing the mount script to add the options: -o umask=007,gid=1028 fixes the latter.
App not being Maintained Last update March 2013.... never really tested... and faulty in more places than one. Forget about the reviews, ... all android apps have 4 stars.. What a freakin' joke..
Almost perfect Love it. Well done. SGS2 Running PAC (4.2.2). would be 5 stars if a feature to mount preexisting containers was available. Anyone seeing issues with RNG on SGS2 use stweaks to disable frandom. Others may benefit using PRNG generator in PimpMyROM.
Only halfway works I do love the idea. I can create an encrypted volume container file, mount it, then use it just like a folder in any file manager... BUT, after unmounting, the loop folder remains and is fully accessible with no encryption! Worse yet, even after manually deleting the encrypted file container itself, THE FOLDER STILL THERE, DECRYPTED AND WORKING FINE!?! Seems that this app simply makes a fake volume file of the size u pick. When you mount it, it just makes a folder. Maybe my kernel Note2+PA rom. 0 Errors
