Than you for summarizing. This means that data stays encrypted. Can we make TWRP backup for the data partition? Does TWRP have access to the files on the internal sd?

Thank you. One word to security. The encrypting users the password I set on EMUI and have to enter on each boot. How does TWRP gets knowledge about it to be able to show the files as if they were not encrypted?

@eddmecha Can we skip step 5 if we decide to root later?

also what benefits are there to flashing without decrypt boot img vs having a decrypt boot img? (any difference)

also, can we use chainfire's supersu apk? (not binary)

Once we had a TWRP version on NEXUS 6p where we had to enter the password once. Then the version came where it was not necessary any more. I think twrp can read the key from somewhere. Or is there a dialog box to enter that key?

The advantage on non readable data is that you are able to store data partition in TWRP backup, to be able to restore apps and personal settings. The disadvantage is that your data from sd card is also readable from twrp without entering a password. For this security reason the bootloader is closed normally and deletes all data on opening.

If you flash new stock firmware bootloader closes. If you open for rooting again you loose all data. But then you can restore data from Nandroid if you had followed the instructions of post 1. I think files from internal sd must be saved before on external sd, too.
