Thank you for the guide, you really helped me.

I flashed the 03/08 Carbon ROM using the USB OTG method (because of driver issues) and it works well.

Default Thanks!

Had to remember my XDA login to hit Thanks! I haven't used my Grouper for some time (kids think it belongs to them). I decided to start carrying it for work and realized just how slow it seemed. I'm so thankful for resources like XDA to tell me about things like F2FS, but I didn't really know where to start. So I read about 100 pages of a dozen threads and finally found this post.

Finding your video on how to format F2FS in a step by step method really made it easy.

I don't have an OTG cable, and don't always trust tool kits, so I just used
Code:
adb push CARBON-KK-UNOFFICIAL-20140803-1733-grouper.zip /sdcard/!ROMS/CARBON-KK-UNOFFICIAL-20140803-1733-grouper.zip

&

adb push 7-29_GApps_Standard_4.4.4_signed.zip /sdcard/!ROMS/7-29_GApps_Standard_4.4.4_signed.zip
Thanks again!
