The cause of your problem can be many things: - the file is incorrectly recognised as encrypted - the file is incorrectly recognised as not-encrypted - the encoding is not utf-8 and there are offending bytes - the parsing of the index file fails somehow To make sure utf-8 is all you do, evaluate (in .emacs e.g.): (prefer-coding-system 'utf-8) (set-default-coding-systems 'utf-8) (set-terminal-coding-system 'utf-8) (set-keyboard-coding-system 'utf-8) (setq default-buffer-file-coding-system 'utf-8) Furthermore, make sure you try everything not encrypted. Also, this helped with me, don't run the latest git org-mode against production release mobileorg. Somehow my mobileorg on iphone failed on the first lines of the index file. mobileorg on Android didn't fail however. Good luck!
