  1. Force encryption Disabler Link not working, please give me working link for download Force encryption Disabler file.

    • Flash stock recovery back. Then once you’ve booted, backup all your files on internal storage. Reflash recovery and once you boot into TWRP, format data and reboot. See if that helps
