There's a small guide by @p34rp34r here
Another awesome guide for f2fs and our device.
Again, if you don't understand what you're doing, DONT DO IT
[*]How to test f2fs thing?
Read this post
@aosp and @bsmitty83 have been using vanir's commotio builds for f2fs test on this thread

I've managed to get a paranoid f2fs version. See post here
Here's the most beloved Liquidsmooth f2fs version by @Punkiderma
F2FS converted OmniROM by @pianistaPL
Our own @poo706

for more info.
Why not? Jump to the F2Fs Q&A thread
Feel free to read and search thru the thread. Ask questions that you still are unsure of.
Kernel FAQ :
- Whythree kernels?
More choice for different users and different user activity.
- What's the difference between these three kernels?
DirtyV versions are the ones where your 1080p recording works.
SR versions are the "SuperRAM" versions where a lot of RAM has been reclaimed. You get more RAM, but you need to give up 1080 recording, as a trade-off. If you plan to use this one, make sure you change your camera video recording to 720p instead of 1080p. Latest kernel versions will make this change automatic.
The 3rd one is @bsmitty83 's own build that he's running for his tests. You can use this and feel like a developer.
This one might not have all the governors/freqs/io/settings that you can't live without, so be prepared to be surprised.
- What are recommended kernel settings?
Follow @Nephilim 's kernel settings. Here they are
- Anyone got any nice init scripts to automate neph's settings?
Yes. @büscher got it all covered for you here Thank him.
- Can I use on x ROM?
Sure. If it doesn't work, let people here know. There might be a workaround.
- How to submit a bug?
Post a note here with relevant information(what you were doing when x happened, screenshots, how to replicate, logs, etc)
- What is this log that people talk about? How to take a useful log?
or use syslog app from play store.
- Does Touchwake/PGM/<your favorite touchmanager> work?
This kernel has an inbuild touchwake. You can set it using a kenel settings application (eg. TricksterMod). Sadly, not any more.
It's also got the required modules to support <your fav tool>. You need to ask the app developer to include support for dirty kernels.
Latest smitty version has touchwake removed, so that PGM developer can update his app to support dirty kernel.
PGM fans, see and thank this post
- What is the difference between linaro and sabermod?
The difference is just what toolchain was used to compile them. Linaro is a highly optimized custom built toolchain, and sabermod is based off aosp toolchain but with lots of extra patches for optimization
Presently, @bsmitty83 is using @metalspring 's custom toolchain to compile all dirty versions. And, they come with a ramdisk, specially made for all of us, by @osm0sis
- Is Fast Charge broken? I can still access my files with fast charge on!
Nope. It's not broken. With some super voodoo now you can access your files along with fast charging your battery. But, do it only if you are in a hurry. Fast charging might not be good for battery life(citation needed).
- My Antutu with <insert kernel name here> is bigger/better/wider/thicker than yours.
- Can I try this on my favorite 4.2/4.0/2.6/0.1.1 ROM ?
Check this post by @osm0sis on how to accomplish this not-so-difficult task.
- When will the next version be released?
Now. Just check the last couple pages, and you'll see @bsmitty83 's got another one for you.
- Latest version does not have my favorite io/gov. Why he no love me no more?
Most likely, smitty forgot to add it in. Just put a comment about the missing item and he'll put it back. In the meantime, try out other io/gov/freq/etc. Maybe you'll find a hidden gem (like @Nephilim found illinois)
- I don't like the kernel splash screen (coming soon)
Eyelids are provided for a reason. Close them for a couple seconds after turning on your phone and you'll get rid of the bootsplash
- What is this synapse thing that I hear about?
Synapse is a kernel settings tool, that you can use to tweak kernel settings that smart people on this thread talk about. @osm0sis has been instrumental in making this tool work for our beloved kernel. Thank him for this free tool.
And Yea " 720p works on all of the builds.
