How to manually boot/recover a system with LUKS and LVM

I have been using LVM on top of LUKS for more than 2 years without problems. However since I haven’t had the chance to troubleshoot these technologies in the past I was quite concerned of what would happen when I would have problems. Today my main computer didn’t boot up and I had to fix it manually. This post shows the steps I performed to recover my system. I use Arch Linux and I prepared a repository with my custom install method based on archinstaller.
