i thought change fstab.qcom <mnt_flags and options> ro,errors=panic to >> errors=continue (deleting ro/read only) will change my system behaviour, but it's not

It's really weird. Unfortunately I have no idea what could be wrong. What's your device btw?

this device galaxy A6+, my first snapdragon device with samsung. yeah, thats really weird..and the most weird of all of these maybe you wont believe me .
please take a look at pic attachment, compare with winmerge between the original extracted system and from my TWRP backup. thats mean this TWRP backup already altered by phone system obviously right? the whole system difference only in "app" and "priv-app" folder. more than 90% of apk are different (wth yellow mark it says binary not equal if take a look inside the folder).
that means something has made a change to those apk(s)..apk has been marked/flaged and if i delete one of those apk, my system will unstable (magisk FC, msg, radio etc.).
as you can see there's remaining apk remain same..like facebookStub, FB services. if i delete this "untouched" apk, nothing gonna happen.
thats my case with this snapdragon, so far i still haven't found similar case in every android forum.

The 1 thing about this device I HATE is that no matter how big of an SD card you put in to it, app data will not go onto the SD card. 16GB is horrible for games and my 64GB SD Card is useless unless I can actually use it for app storage

I don't see any reason why this wouldn't work. There are magisk modules that could help you bind your sd card to move app data there. Unfortunately I have never tried that,so I will not be able to assist you.

(from their website: "Samsung Knox is designed to protect the kernel and prevent rooting. This keeps the system processes and resources protected from hostile access and malware attacks."; emphasis mine.)

Try selinux permissive ?
Try to setenforce 0 I had selinux give me lots of problems if ANYTHING in the system got changed...
I wouldn't think forcecloses?
Dm-verity aslo seemed to be an issue on my s6 edge MM 6.0.1 at the time ?

Honor 5c
Don't work on Honor 5C NEM-L51.
I tried to install magisk, but modifiy the boot.img "brick" the device. (On startup the "encryption unsuccessful" pop-out)
I follow this Thread, but the problem is still present, after the animation boot, the message "encryption unsuccessful" pop and i can not bypass this security.

I add as an attachment screenshots of my OLD and NEW fstab (I have doubts about the changes I made, knowing that the file is .hi6250 and i have 5 fstab.zram in the ramdisk directory).

Thanks for help, and sorry for my bad English.

Edit: I'm not able to add files or url because of a stupid "anti-spam" rules

I suggest using the assayyed kitchen menu to remove encryption instead of the manual way i suggested in the guide. After extracting the boot.img file you would see the option to do that throught the menu. Also don't forget to format your userdata using TWRP before booting.

No there is no need to remove dm-verity, to get rid of encryption.

The procedure don't work
when you say delete userdata, it's TWRP> wipe-> format data> "yes" ?
