If I were you, I would just download the nocturnal team's stock rooted ROM for LYZ28E and extract the boot.img from it and flash that. The boot images could be the exact same from the two builds but I don't think anyone knows for sure yet - at least I don't. Better safe than sorry.

Here's one for LYZ28E

Doesnt take a genius to mode the boot.img

  1. Extract the Android Image Kitchen zip i uploaded in this post
  2. drag in the boot.img file you wish to modify onto the unpackimg.bat file
  3. you should get a command window pop up, it should say succesfull and you will get a few folders added.
  4. open the ramdisk folder and open the fstab.shamu file using notepad++
  5. search for forceencrypt and replace it with encryptable. there should be only one case where this exists.
  6. save the file, go back to the root of the image kitchen folder, and run the repackimg.bat file.
  7. you should get a new boot.img build called image-new.img, you can use this now to flash on your device

Thanks for the links and info. I was wondering how to modify the boot image myself, since no one really had a confirmed non encrypting boot for this build.
Does android image kitchen work on Mac or Linux platforms? I don't have any PCs running Windows OS.

AWESOME! I didn't realize it was this easy. Now I can take care of it myself without having to wait or bug anybody to do it. Thanks a million!

Hey there,
With the latest build (5.1.1) have you noticed any big differences in performance or battery life?

Thanks,
M

Absolutely no difference in anything, from my experience.

So just use the same instructions just a different image and boot.IMG? So we will still have to wipe sdcard?

Thanks.
