I was considering attempting to use the f2fs filesystem that is discussed in original android development but I'm a bit confused with what to do to load a new rom. Can anyone explain if it will work with the purity rom and what I need to do to get it working? Or also let me know if its not possible.

Yes, I have used Purity with F2FS, but this filesystem is unstable because the system hangs usually (I have also tried with SlimKat and RastaKat with same hangs copying many files).

Basically:
- You must flash "twrp-unofficial-2.7.1.0-f2fs.img" as a normal recovery and change /data, /cache and /system (optional) to F2FS.
You will find this option under Wipe -> Advanced Wipe, then select only one partition and press the "Repair or Change File System" button for change to F2FS. Use Wipe -> Format Data also (you will lost data in /sdcard).
- Install Purity ROM (if /system is converted to F2FS, you must use "convert2F2FS.jar" for modify ROM zip and must install this new ROM).
- If /system is F2FS, install "KTManta_F2FS-26-06-2014-ALLF2FS.zip" Kernel or "KTManta_F2FS-26-06-2014_CACHE_DATA_PARTITIONS.zip" else.

Where do you get convert2F2FS.jar?
