Talk:Removing system encryption

Decrypting LUKS2 devices in-place may be okay now

There is a big warning in Removing system encryption#Decrypting LUKS2 devices in-place. It seems relevant issues in cryptsetup [1][2] are fixed. I successfully decrypted a LUKS2 partition in-place with the following command several days ago.

sudo cryptsetup reencrypt --header /path/to/luks-header.img --decrypt /dev/sdxY

Note that `/boot/luks-header.img` does not exist before this command
