F2FS Rom and Packs converter
  • Convert any ROM to work F2FS (provided it is compatible ROM).
The Roms tested and approved to this version are Liquid and Carbon. Feel free to test other (the rom of your choice) and post your results so we can increase the number of proven compatible roms and other work in order to make them work.
  • Convert any package to install on roms F2FS.
If you already use one F2FS rom and has difficulties installing packages (ElementalX-N5-1.04-express.zip for example) just use the converter.

The differential of this script compared to others is that this does not include kernels have changed in order to make a rom work F2FS, but try to change the original kernel of the rom in order to make it work.
  • How to use:
Unrar the file on your PC with Windows system;
Open the folder you created and click F2FS CONVERTOR-Nexus5.bat;
Select the desired option;
Wait for the system to prompt you paste the rom or package to convert in the subfolder extract is automatically created;
Paste the file and wait, always watching the screen waiting for new prompts.
Hope it works with your ROM and you enjoy.

Neither I nor XDA are responsible for any damage to your device.

Firstly I have been off the development of the tool due to time constraints , me getting back to ext4 and that I missed my favorite kernel which still doesnt support F2FS . Also improvments in /system folder is little compared to /data and thats also something which forced me leave it !! But im more than impressed with the progress you guys have made and now I am kind of tending to start the development on it soon !!

If you wish can I make a tool based on this similarly for my Nexus 4 !!

Have a gr8 day ahead man !!

PS: Looking at the credits in your OP its so much similar to my OP xD

Only the Kernel carbon. The rest is a customization.

It turns out that many users use Windows. Remember also that for the script to work there is an "emulator" Linux built into the package to know cygwin.
