FINALLY! I have the 8GB variant, and the latest update disabled my ability to rollback. (it's an irreversible firmware update) I'm just waiting until this thing is usable enough.

If you have an 8GB, it's literally impossible to install anything with all the bloat.

Thank you for this useful comment!
CM13 has the option to format externalSD as internal. Also, users that flash irreversible firmwares will be able to have an AOSP based ROM.
Instead of just waiting for CM13 to be stable, you can contribute to make this work faster. Search and find errors through logcat, discuss them here so we can take a look on them.
This applies to every user out there. That's why XDA is made for, after all!

Regards,
Nick Verse.
