It does support it, at least for me. Maybe because I have installed the "KitKat SD Card Full Access" module on Xposed? that and foldermount makes a great combo.

Really? Damn. Partitioned my SD card for nothing. I'm not really sure what Xposed is; I guess I'm going to go find a tutorial for it now. Thanks for the heads up.

P.S. Why would you need foldermount if you have native apps2sd? Doesn't the native move obb files?

Xposed Framework Is really useful and can be a really great complement in some roms (like the Stock one); It let you change the behavior of the system and apps without touching any APKs; so for example, I use it to force Inmersive Mode on apps that doesn't have this feature (I use it for games mostly, so I play at full screen ) and also I have the module named Kitkat SD Card full acces, that itself doesn't let me move apps to the SD, but if I understand correctly, this one let non-system apps gain acces to the SD Card (sdcard1).
I still can't move apps to the SD with that (from settings, also tried App2SD and link2sd and said that there was a problem because storage is being emulated) That's why I need to use FoulderMount and it's simple. select the source folder to mount (from Emulated/0 or sdcard0) and then thee destination folder (sdcard1/[whateverthenameofthefolderis]/) and that's it. there are tutorials (better explained) on how to use it too.

Link2sd need second partition of the sd card and I don't know how to do it.I tried so many times but it didn't work.

If you're happy using Foldermount, then I suggest you don't bother with Link2SD. Partitioning an SD card is annoying and often messy. Also, it's not very flexible. You can't use any free space in the second partition for storage, which is just wasteful. Don't get me wrong, it's a brilliant app, and a very clever workaround for the problem, but it's not a perfect solution.

Oh, I see. So there's no way to get the native, Android inbuilt app2sd? Bummer.
The Xposed framework looks very interesting, to say the least. After taking a look, I've decided to go back to stock and just use this for my tweaks and such. How long I'll keep it like that, I don't know, but I'm definitely going to try it. Thanks for explaining it to me.
