2. Format DATA in recovery
3. Switch /data to F2FS
4. Perhaps reboot?
5. Restore /system and /data from backup to the newly F2FS'd internal card
6. Install _that's F2FS kernel

Is it really this simple?

Thanks.

EDIT:

Apparently it isn't as simple as that. When restoring the recovery automatically reverts the /data back to EXT4. Any way around that?
When you restored your BU, twrp reformatted your data partition with ext4 before restoring... So you may want to skip step 5 and it may work.. good luck...

Why wasn't it working? What is your setup? I did help a few users running f2fs with the internal or external data... Maybe, I may be able to help..

I have not used TWRP 2.7.1.1 yet, so take this with a grain of salt, but it should work like this:

1. yes - you did that already
2. and 3. are the same. You format /data to f2fs - look for the option under the advanced format option
4. reboot to recovery
5. flash one of the kernels from the OP
6. reboot to recovery
7. restore data
8. reboot system

I don't think TWRP by default formats data before the restore - at least it didn't do that in former versions. I suspect you never really formatted data to f2fs in the first place. Watch the recovery script as it works and at the end save the recovery log.
You do not need to restore system as that partition never got touched.
Let us know if it worked

I just went ahead and skipped the whole restoring business.

Now the tablet seems yo work great. Would I see any further improvement with Data2Sd? My card is a class 10 Lexar 32Gb.

2.7.1.x does appear to have a bug - it looks at the format of the backup and then formats /data first to match that format which is annoying if you have a nandroid from ext4 that you are trying to restore to f2fs as you end up back on ext4 through no fault of your own.... grrrr...

It seems that F2FS has data losing issue when device freezed suddenly and must forced shutdown.
I found some files I copied to /sdcard are missing after rebooting.

The CM11 kernel for the TF700 doesn't support f2fs.
