This is a try at your own risk procedure.

README:
Code:
Our device comes with forced encryption and, more important,
verity which checks at every boot if /system partition has been changed or not.
If /system has been changed, verity won't allow booting your device which means
you can't flash anything unless you disable verity.

--- Marshmallow and Nougat only ---
If you aren't going to root your device, you can use my patcher else SuperSU should do this anyway.
In order to definitely get rid of encryption you'll have to erase userdata with fastboot
To temporarily boot this recovery:
Code:
fastboot boot twrp.img
To permanently flash it:
Code:
fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
In both cases an unlocked bootloader is required.

Download:
twrp.me
AndroidFileHost (old/unofficial builds)

Seems to work just as decribed. Thank you so much!

EDIT: SuperSU SR3 seems to have trouble with the extracting the ramdisk...

I am having trouble getting the phone to start again.
Installing the stock firmware results in an error:
"Could not find 'META-INF/com/google/android/update-binary' in the zip file.
Error installing zip file '%path_to_zip'. "

Possibly a corrupt download? Looks like the updater-binary file didn't get to your hard drive in one piece...

Yeah, I tried this one, seems to work just fine until you try and flash SuperSU with it. For the official releases it fails to extract ramdisk and the system-mode ones it doesn't patch dm-verity. I ended up using the Chinese one to get a rooted addison.

Phh superuser works with our device. Flashed that instead of using TWRP auto root.

Would you mind sharing a URL to the PHH SU you used? I'll give that one a try. Did you flash it in inside TWRP?
