I tried to format the /data with f2fs, and then flashed the elementalx kernel. But the machine only asked me to type the password to decrypt the storage.

If the kernel doesn't modify the ramdisk image also (some don't) then you might have to flash a kernel with the modded ramdisk first.
Haven't ever done the f2fs mod on my 2013 N7, since I don't see a need to go through the extra steps every time I update as the 2013 N7 is already fast.
My 2012 N7 though, I keep on F2FS forever since it makes a big difference on that tablet. Even though I use Faux123 that supports F2FS, I have to flash Legolas first as it gives the modded ramdisk necessary, then flash Faux123 over it.
Someone more familiar with F2FS on the N7 2013 might should respond.
