Any suggestion?

CM12 should by default encrypt your phone.
There is an ption to encrypt your phone in Security settings as well.

Yeah, I finally removed the encryption myself and I gotta say that I don't see much of a difference in day to day use...the phone seems to be a tad faster transferring files and booting up but that's about it...
Thanks so much for the info guys.

Hey I'm such an idiot I meant to write "remove encryption", but I've been reading that it's not much of a difference.

Good evening fellas, tried searching but couldn't find an answer so dont shoot me if this is asked a lot.

I'm rooted and running "Pure Shamu b3.92" encrypted, is there anyway to decrypt without losing my data now?
Thanks.

As far as I know-no. Decrypting the device requires a factory reset in order to work.
Please correct me if I am wrong.

Back up your data to a computer. Reset. Put data back on. Just dump the SD card to the computer. That's how I would do it. Then send it right back. Not hard. 10 minutes maybe?

OK. If I flash a new ROM can I just pull the boot. IMG from the rom and flash the ROM without it and remain decrypted? I'd like to flash a ROM but don't want to lose decryption. Also I'm having a problem finding how while in twrp after flashing this using flashify I had to erase user data or something like that. Thanks

If your already decrypted flash any custom rom and flash any kernel like Franco or sensei and you will remain decrypted. All the custom kernels have removed the flag that triggers encryption if your already decrypted that is. Just don't ever flash the stock boot image again. Most custom roms are using lean kernel or other custom kernels already like liquid. Just flash rom gapps custom kernel and your golden. I hope that was what you were asking.

Yes that was what I was asking. I'm going to flash clean ROM. I was just going to pull the boot.IMG and then flash the boot. IMG from my nandroid of what I have now v which is decrypted. Seems like that would work.

Just curious why you wouldn't want to flash Franco. Increased my battery life a lot. Do you just like the stock decrypted kernel or want to stay as close to stock as possible.
