NoteFor removing Encryption.
To flash a custom rom and remove encryption in twrp, you need to once format data in twrp else you won’t be able to wipe and install any custom rom in your phone.
So for this process.
Boot into twrp, (you can boot to twrp by any app, by vol- and power button combination ( Can be seen here) or from option “5” --> “5” in recowvery command window)
Click -->Wipe-->Format Data-->*_* “yes”-->enter.
( *_* = type )
You need to do this only once. After that you can flash roms and zips unlimited times.
