Removed force encrypt on the factory image for the Nexus 6. After a bout of crashes where the device remained in a state of waiting for the pin and not at the lock screen I finally gave in to finding out how to do it myself.
+Ryan Cullen ah, I can't try on Nexus 6 but here's how to get there with the Nexus 9:
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot boot twrp-22.214.171.124-flounder.img
adb sideload fed_patcher.zip
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot erase userdata
Thank you +François Simond !
Going to try this. I hope the performance are a bit better then.
I guess you applied the MRA58K rom before all that ?
+Gaël Beaudoin yes after flashing Marshmallow.
When TWRP starts it gives an error as it can't handle the encryption format yet, but you can ignore it: userdata will be erased later anyway.
Thanks +François Simond 🙂
I do the Android kitchen method. Unzip everything drop the boot.img in edit one of the files, rebuild then flash one by one. This way there is no wipe.
Done, apps are downloading, encryption disabled, shiny! Thank for the tip!
+Karl Ramstedt FED-Patcher is a mod that allows to disable forced encryption on devices which are.
+François Simond nevermind, I just thought they made some changes to how older devices handled it, but quickly realized that such wasn't the case.
Unfortunately OTA are downloaded and proposed, but fail while applying just after reboot. I need to flash the full ROM each time I guess. Which is no fun. I like my fast N9.
+Gaël Beaudoin the update process becomes tricky indeed, I managed it with success still.
– download and extraction of the new factory images
– extraction of the zip
– fastboot flash of each img aside from recovery.img
– boot into recovery directly
– adb sideload of fed patcher v7
Thanks +François Simond as always. I'll try 🙂
And it worked. Bookmarking this, I guess I'll use it next month 🙂
+Gaël Beaudoin great 😊
