I have an Nexus 6 Version 7.1.1. The complete Storage is crypted. So it is not possible to wipe the data and system by using TWRP. I did an factory reset but after that the storage also was crypted. How can I encrypt these Version of Nexus 6?

I believe that the stock rom forces encryption.

Use TWRP's format data to remove encryption if you want to install a recent custom rom. Of course, you'll lose all your files by doing that.

Hi, thank you. But if I install twrp on this N6, I need for using twrp a password. If I try to format user Data, the formatting dont work. After start android I have the same crypted data storage. I thing, android install after new starting an crypted storage! I try now to install lineage os after formatting data.

Hi runcock,
thank you for your help. I installed twrp, formatted all data removed encryption and installed lineageos 17.1 and gaps by using extern otg-storage. All funktions on the nexus 6 works normally. Update to the last version of shamu also worked. Thank you till the next question!
