Question [Q] Converting the Maguro to F2FS

Hi Guys,
I originally posted this question in another thread that seems to have dried up immediately after I posted, so I am re-posting it here in the hopes that someone will actually see it this time:

I'm pretty close to taking the plunge on this, but can someone look over this and let me know if there is going to be any problem?

Steps I will take, in this order:

1: Convert a rom (CM11 in my case) to F2FS friendly version using the conversion software on my PC

2: Create a nandroid backup and copy it to PC.

3: Connect to PC using nexus root toolkit. (doing this instead of manual ADB commands. Should work, right?)

4: Reboot into Recovery (latest version of TWRP supports F2FS file system, and is already installed) and convert System, data, and cache to F2FS

5: use Nexus Root Toolkit to flash the converted rom and GAPPS

Is that all there is to it, or is there something I'm missing here?

Thanks guys.
