Default F2FS for Evita?

Here's an XDA link explaining F2FS if you're not familiar:

Edit: Here's another, also including nil2fs:

Basically, Samsung developed a filesystem allegedly geared towards the nuances of NAND flash. With the recent buzz surrounding the Moto E and the X, F2FS seems to be getting thrown around a lot as partial explanation towards those devices' snappiness despite "lower-end" hardware.

Everyone here knows that the Evita has some pretty bad issues with its eMMC, and we've tried a bunch of different things to try to mitigate its poor quality. Maybe this is worth a shot?

Default Stuck at boot animation

Greetings! I'm a new member to the forum, but I've lurked for a long time, so I posted this in the general Questions and Answers forum first. I've successfully flashed many ROMs, including Paranoid Android (including the latest release) but am dissatisfied with the performance, so I thought I'd try to convert to f2fs. I apologize if I mix up terminology anywhere, but I think I've got most of it.

Here are the steps that I have taken:

1. Flashed latest TWRP with support for f2fs
2. Performed a full wipe
3. Went to Advanced Wipe, converted data first, then cache partition to f2fs.
4. Flashed PA ROM
5. Wiped cache/dalvik
6. Flashed Torched Kernel (with support for f2fs)
7. Flashed f2fs-fstab conversion tool (v1.2)
8. Reboot System

I've even tried flashing the boot.img from the PA ROM in fastboot, but no dice. I can't figure out why I'm still getting stuck on the boot animation. Anybody have an idea? Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
