Unhappy [Q] Link2SD not working at all after CM11 upgrade.

Hello peeps!
This is my first post! But it aint any tutorial, rather just a problem I am facing. Since, ya'll know, galaxy pop has a very little internal memory, hence, too many apps cannot be installed. However, this problem was overcome by apps such as the one mentioned in the question. But now the problem I face is, after I upgraded to CM11 (jenkins) this method no longer works. From un-installing system apps to moving them. Either there is so "no media available error" or "no sufficient permissions error" (even though SU allows L2SD)
So, is there something I am missing out? Is there something I need to do? I am ready to wipe data any number of times, but just don't want to downgrade.
PS. I tried the ADB method. It was decent, but problem? System apps can't be moved, or atleast the option wasn't enabled in my phone.
PPS. I really love this ROM, so please, any suggestions except downgrading would be appreciated.

You should uninstall link2sd and flash cronmod INT2EXT. It's a script that mounts your sd-ext partition as data, so that you get more storage.
For this need a class 10 sd card or faster and you have to create an sd-ext partition on it. There are many tutorials on how to do that, just Google it.

I'm currently downloading. And the ping is still 6ms. The speed is the same.

Well, thank you for that suggestion. Well, since i already created a mount script with link2SD, is it alright if i just unsinstall it?

Be sure to check if it removes the script or not. In theory it does, but checking doesn't hurt.

Exclamation No Success.

hey, I just wanted to inform that I tried to use Cronmod's INT2EXT, but it didn't do the trick for me. I was wondering, every time I use ES file explorer, I see a "sd-ext" folder. Will moving apps there do the trick?
I know this may be a stupid question, but I am just curious.

I use older version of Link2SD (Link2SD 3.1.5) and never update the L2SD
I can still use it until now...

I used the SDFix app, then used the L2SD and it worked, hell even other scripts which refused to work before, now works.
but, sometimes apps stops working, random reboots, random cache clearances blah blah! :v
I will try what you just suggested!
