I am not sure what you are asking for.  What is missing in MobileOrg?
You say it is suffering from bitrot but it works just fine for me on a
daily basis, with no issues having multiple Android devices using the
same location.  Okay, it no longer works with Dropbox but it does work
with a number of other media.

Maybe I missed it but what is not clear is what features you actually
require that you don't have other than the encryption aspect mentioned

For instance, I have recently started playing with org-dropbox [1] for
capturing notes from an Android device.  But I will keep using MobileOrg
as I need Google calendar synchronisation.

The only way to truly work with org on your phone would be to have Emacs
on your phone.  That *is* possible but the currently available solutions
are less than useful (IMO).  The second best is to ssh to a system
running Emacs (as has already been suggested).

My own full solution is to have a palm sized computer running Emacs: the
Pandora [2] which is (hopefully) soon to be replaced by the Pyra [3].
