    hey, got an n6 recently and still encrypted. some roms out there I believe have no forced encryption/decrypted rom. my question is if I flash one of these roms will I lose all my user data? also, is there a list anywhere of roms based on encryption? thanks

    I may be mistaken but anytime you flash a ROM to your phone you loose all data and apps. You should always do a backup of anything that you do not want to loose. You may want to took at this article: how-disable-encryption-android-lollipop.

    yes, I know about losing user apps and system data when flashing. what I meant was the sdcard partition, where all the photos, downloads, music, etc are stored. the thing is I would like to keep encryption, but I don't understand what happens when flashing a decrypted/no forced encryption rom over an encrypted one.

    A recovery won't be able to access your SDCard since it is encrypted. You won't be able to flash a ROM.

    Sometimes, only part of the SDCard is encrypted. Maybe that's why you can still flash ROMs. Was your content still acessible?
