Default [Q] ROM2SD [CROMi-X 5.2.2] installed, how to share data

Hi,

after some problems (loop on boot animation - after re-wipe and reformatting the sdcard twice with gparted got it) got ROM2SD running.
Very smooth and stable until now!
A practical, may be beginner's, question: I'd like to leave some big data folders on the internal flash (like offline maps for osmand and Locus, ebooks and such), i.e. sharing them if booting from internal rom.
Unfortunately not all apps allows configuration of external data folders.
My naive idea was using of symbolic links ("ln -s /storage/sdcardi/0/Books /storage/sdcard0/Books") but it seems not to be supported:
"link failed Function not implemented"
Other ideas?

Regards,
Andrej

I haven't found a way to do it either.
