I am running LineageOS 17.1 with encryption, opengapps and Magisk installed without problems. I tried to get rid of opengapps as mentioned here. I wiped the system partition and after rebooting into TWRP I tried to use the file manager to find the data inside
/data but it was empty and I figured it cannot be displayed because of the encryption. Well than I installed the new LOS build and Magisk, wiped the cash and rebooted into system which caused a bootloop after entering the encryption password. It always reboots to TWRP.
After that I wiped the
system partition again and reinstalled the LOS build without Magisk, because I read in some forums that Magisk can cause such loops. Anyway the phone keeps on bootlooping until I flash opengapps. After that everything works fine.
Note: The phone does not enter the system optimization phase but reboots during the LOS - bar is displayed.
Is there a way to get rid of opengapps without performing a factory reset (what I mean with that is I do not want to wipe the user data or get rid of the encryption)?
Thank you and have a nice evening!
