*8.1 Official is here! -Updated 1/7/18*

Thank you to @osm0sis for the Android Image Kitchen tool used to modify the boot.img's, found here. An especially huge thanks to @Tigerstown for teaching my Windows-using rookie ass, and just for supporting a device he doesn't even own for so long. It is incredibly appreciated.

Next to each build number you'll find the first links are simply boot.imgs modified to just disable forced encryption. The second links are stock boot.imgs that have both disabled forced encryption, and dm verity has been disabled as well - take your pick. Only SYSTEMLESS ROOT is working with these boot.imgs. Tigerstown has put a lot of effort into trying to get system root working, but unfortunately it doesn't seem doable yet.

Naturally, the regular warnings and disclaimers apply here. I cannot be held responsible if anything goes wrong, no warranties, etc. Of course should something happen, myself and the community are here to help.

Going from using a boot.img that is just decrypted to one that also has dm-verity disabled will cause SuperSU to fail when flashing - specifically when the script gets to patching sepolicy.

Starting with NRD90R and on, see the download links in this thread below. Any build prior you will find the modified boot.imgs for your respective builds in Tigerstowns thread here.

Simply flash the corresponding boot.img for your build number via fastboot:
Code:
fastboot flash boot boot.img
If your device is currently encrypted and you are looking to decrypt it, use the commands below. Please note that coming from an encrypted device, when you decrpyt it you WILL WIPE YOUR PHONE AND YOU LOSE YOUR DATA.
Code:
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot format userdata
fastboot format cache

I think they'll have a security update out tomorrow. As soon as factory images are online I'll post the new boot.img.

November security update images are live now, should have this ready tonight after I'm home from work. If anyone is updating to the new build and feels like testing out really quickly, please feel free to PM me.

Holy ****, I don't know how I missed this. I had no idea there was a second Nov. update...I've just been keeping my eye's open for the new DP. I'll have it online shortly.

@Oversemper, I have it ready to go but I don't have the time to install this firmware on my phone to test it, and I don't want to make it available in the OP until it has been tested. If you'd like I can DM you the link to it in Google Drive so that you can test it. It should be all set to go...this is a really simple alteration. Would you be willing to test it?

Theoretically, if something is wrong I will be able to just flash stock boot.img? If so, then I will be glad to try it out first.
