How to encrypt shipped database in android?

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – Team, I have an Android application with large SQLite database this data costs me lots of money and I don't want to let anybody have it easily. This database come to me as databse.sqlite file and I shipped into into the APK assets. is there anyway to encrypt this database before shipping and then decrypt while reading the data ? P.S I searched for this a lot and all of my results point me to use sqlcipher but this lib does not work with shipped SQLite database file. (HowTos)
