can i do this without wiping data on 5.0.1?

Mine is an encrypted Nexus 6. It's as stock as stock can be. Just opened the box, installed my apps and using it. Ran into this forum and out of curiosity, ran Androbench.

You people are talking in terms off triple digits for speeds. But I am hardly there.

This is what I got :

Seq read: 27.07 MB/s
Seq write: 17.32 MB/s

See attached image for full test results performed just sometime ago.

Question is: do these look good to you? Are these number appropriate for a stock N6?

Lol
Even I don't know why I replied to you. But by the time I realised, the damage was done. So I just shut the **** up!! Lol

But do these numbers that I posted look good to you for a stock? Else I will return the device. Just been 5 days since I got it.

If I were to follow the steps and decrypt my device, will I continue to get OTA's or will we be treated more like custom romers, what with modified boot image & all.

If we do get the OTA, does any one know if it'll undo our decryption work?

Also, does the new v5.0.1 have any setting to decrypt the device?

Thanks in advance for any help!!!

All OTAs will likely come with a kernel which upon reboot after installing it will re-encrypt. If you flash an ota, but also flash an unencrypted kernel BEFORE rebooting (but after the ota) you'll be fine.

Did you do
fastboot format userdata
or a factory reset in twrp?
I just did mine now and I used fastboot format userdata and it's no longer encrypted

The OTAs will never install due to the modified boot.img.

The process for updating is really not that hard...I posted all of the exact steps a few pages back. There is no way to decrypt in plain stock, and it doesn't look like they are going to allow that to happen any time soon.
