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.

Interesting. Do I have to use an app to set the parameters of Franco kernel? I used to really like to fiddle a lot but not so much any more. I purchased his app though around a year ago. Also, do I have to format user data when flashing a custom kernel if they are running decrypted? Thanks for replying

If all your doing is flashing a kernel the answer is no. Just flash the kernel but I would make back up in TWRP first. A new custom rom factory reset is the norm unless you already are running the rom, an then you can dirty flash but I would make a backup first in TWRP just in case . If your decrypted stock rooted with TWRP installed you can download his app and it will download and flash his kernel auto magically if you are on a custom recovery like TWRP. I would back up first again just to make sure. When I came from the factory rom when I got the phone I unlocked rooted decrypted and put on TWRP. Then factory reset in TWRP and flashed liquid rom gapps and lean kernel and have now switch to Franco and dirty flash ever night as liquid updates

Ok so heres my story I disabled encryption on stock fine and living with it, yesterday i flashed the CM12 daily nightly which was build LRX22G so again I tried to disable the encryption by flashing the LRX22C kernel from the thread as LRX22G wasn't there. The phone went badass after boot too much lag and still encrypted plus from the three softkeys below home and overview were gone. Then I flashed fresh Rom again from recovery. Now I am still encrypted. Which kernel should be flashed for CM12 5.0.2 builds .

Elemental x or Franco or lean or sensei. I like the first two..but I'm sure you know flash rom gapps and one of those kernels after you have decrypted again. If any encrypted data is on your phone it will remain encrypted regardless of the kernel or rom.

So what you are saying is that if i make a nandroid then decrypt i could use that nandroid to return to the same setup without encryption?

Im not sure. Give it a try. Once you decrypt you can stay decrypted rather easily. I was saying to do this though so you could keep your pictures etc.... Without losing anything. Then put whatever you want back on the phone once you are decrypted.

I don't have anything important on my phone so there is nothing to back up, i just dont wanna install all apps and set up everything all over again
But maybe i'll just have to do it.

Just dump to PC and reinstall apps without data then you won't have to download all of them again. May be quicker that way.

Conversely. I accidentally installed a ROM which then encrypted me. I then reinstalled my prior ROM which was decrypted but my phone still remains encrypted. ;( So if everything is backed up still worth trying. I am going to decrypt again over the weekend and experiment and see what happens since I have everything backed up to usb stick.

Fyi, you absolutely can restore a backup from when you were encrypted, after decrypting.
