You need to factory reset after flashing this, too. Which can be done with fastboot erase userdata.

Looks like, cf-auto root doesn't call "fastboot flash boot" just "fastboot boot" - is that a difference or is it the same thing?

i ended up flashing noencrypt, then factory reset, then running cf root after a full reboot, end result encryption off and root with twrp =) life is good.

Looks like I misunderstood how CF-auto-root works. it just boots within the bootloader and does stuff. I'll update the OP

Haha you just voiced what everyone lurking in this thread is hoping to see.

Thank you so much for this. Here are some quick I/O scores after disabling encryption.

For the lazy people, such as myself, is that an improvement?

Huge improvement. I didn't think to benchmark before, but here's some Nexus 5 scores with encryption enabled/disabled for comparison.

Huge improvement. Like, 5x better based on the benchmarks I've seen.

That looks like a vast improvement, faster than the note 4.

Woot woot

Side question, if we flash this image to disable encryption, have root, and unlocked bootloader, will we still get the OTA updates?

I think so, but this boot.img would be overwritten after an OTA update so it'd turn back on the forced encryption (which would encrypt after the OTA rebooted/booted). You'd probably also lose root, assuming it formats /system.

This is someone's Androbench scores on a stock (encrypted) Nexus 6 for comparison. It's quite a lot better.

Ok all don't smack me too hard Lol.

I'm rooted with twrp installed. Which one should I flash in Fastboot and sounds like it'll wipe data afterwards?

Thanks ahead.
