    So I upgraded to Lollipop keeping my data etc, and now I can't reinstall the SuperSU binary because TWRP does not support decryption yet on Lollipop. Is there any other way to install it?

    I'm pretty sure you can do it with CF-auto root ( http://autoroot.chainfire.eu/#fastboot) but I believe it will wipe your data.

    Data wipe part isn't very appealing.

    I agree, but I don't think there's another way to root an vencrypted device. At least not yet.

    Could you back up your data partition through twrp or do an adb pull, then restore after rooting? I'm not encrypted, so I don't know how much you can interact with it

    Can't access any data in twrp cause it can't decrypt and mount the partition.

    Back when I was using the Lollipop Developer Preview (on my Nexus 5) I had the same issue you are having, and I "solved" it using a USB OTG drive.
    Even though you can't decrypt the internal storage, inside TWRP, you can find your OTG drive and flash whatever you want, without wiping your device.

    This worked for me, hopefully it can work for you too..

    Cheers,

    You mean putting the SuperSU zip in the otg? how will it flash that to the internal storage though if it can't mount it to write?

    The system partition is not encrypted, only the user's data is encrypted. SuperSU and it's binary get installed to the system partition. I just did the OTG thing and installed BETA-SuperSU-v2.23. It works.

    Any chance either one of you, TheJeremyP or Mathorlaz, could go into a little more detail on how to install SuperSU via OTG? I had my Nexus 5 rooted and really customized and just updated to 5.0 and lost all my customization that required root access. Any help/info would be greatly appreciated!

    Just tried this, but TWRP won't mount the usb-otg, when I click on it under Mount it doesn't activate, (area with 3 items: System, Cache, usb-otg). Only system mounts fine. I tried with 2 sticks, one with FAT32 and another on NTFS, with a Y cable plugged to the pc.

    You should still be able to backup through adb though because your device would be decrypted.

    If you've got the cable though, Mathorlaz' otg idea is probably best.
