Is it possible to encrypt the data on Mi9 while using weekly roms? I formated the device to be able to install Xiaomi.eu and while it works fine, the phone is only able to boot if disable dm verity-force encrypt is also flashed. Have tried different twrp versions. And it so, what is the correct procedure and can it be done without a clean install?

Without clean install , can't do anything!
Bcos u already try many ways, many test analysis, can't revert back encryption.
Better try clean install...

1st time twrp installation time , twrp asking keep system read only or swipe to allow modification.
What u select ?

Yes, it ask for.
Now i am on EU 9.8.10, so twrp don't ask and i can't see anymore the real names of data.
What happened? MIUI changed encryption method so that China TWRP can't decrypt data anymore?

Same problem here before an OTA update , if i enter in twrp i see that message, ho to remove encyption , i have the last xiaomieu MIUI 10 ANDROID 10
Enter your pin password or if any you try to set one and reboot twrp.
IF fully unsuccessful you must format data/yes in wipe section of twrp. you gonna erase all your data! have backup!
