I have CM11 nightly installed on my Z1C.
I encrypted the device.

I want to decrytpt it since the GPS is not working when the device is encrypted.

CWM recovery does not have support for encrypted filesystems, so I can't wipe the data partition from there.
I can get root access with ADB on the phone when the phone is turned on, but I can't format the /data partition while it is use.

How do I get rid of the encryption?
I don't care about the data on it.

I simply solved it by installing an original firmware from an FTF via flashtool, that reliably wipes the partitions and thus dm-crypt.
