    It's been 5 hours of me flashing every custom recovery I could find, yet on each reboot it gets replaced with stock recovery. HELP ME PLEASE

    I haven't installed a custom recovery on the 5t yet but from previous phones, this usually happens when /system isn't mount read write which allows removing the android script that copies back the original recovery. This should be automatically done by your recovery.

    Unless this is different on OP (which I doubt) these are two different things. Recovery can now decrypt your data partition. I'd suggest leaving encrypted unless you have a very specific need. Decryption doesn't slow much the device anymore.

    edit: decryption would be to erase your data and start with a custom recovery or kernel which doesn't enforce encryption.

    You guys should use the forum less and google more.
    If you're on stock ROM, it will replace TWRP with stock recovery unless you root. If you have decryption issues, use codeworkx TWRP.

    no, doesn't absolutely needs root. this is orthogonal.
    don't search Google for this kind of things...

    Well... guess what...
    When I first flashed TWRP and didn't root, it did the same thing, I've always flashed root but this one time I didn't. I was confused and googled my answer and got it. Surprise^^

    Use codeworkx twrp and no-verity zip if you're decrypted.

    a custom kernel with no encryption enforce is sufficient for example. even if I suggest to root, you have to understand that these are separate things.

    That would be another way of dealing with it.

    I don't want to decrypt, I was just asking if it will fix this problem???????

    No. two separate things. The kernel encrypts a partition that is unencrypted.
    If the kernel and fstab is modified, the kernel will leave your unencrypted partition decrypted.
