Ahoj Sailors,

I tried to format and encrypt three different MicroSD cards via the Settings UI (32GB, 64GB, 256GB) - all three multiple times without success. The result is always an error message which notifies me that the attempt failed and the card is now in an unusable state. Anyone else have this problem? The three cards work in unencrypted states, one split into three completely different partitions without problems. As soon as I find out where to put the luks header, I'll try olf's how-to.

Any other suggestions or traps I might have missed?

Sorry, already consulted that and doesn't completely fit my reality, i.e. if I try to format a card J1 uses ext4 (and fails), if I retry after that, vFAT is being used (successfully!!), regardless of card size. vFAT isn't even mentioned in the article.
