Native "install to SD" support was last available in Android 2.x, which was way before the v500 even came into the market. Starting with 4.x (ICS), SD card support was gradually crippled by Google, peaking in 4.4 (KitKat), where non-system apps were no longer able to write to the card at all. Android 5 brought back data (but not app) storage on SD, Android 6 brought adoptable storage. No, I don't like that concept either, but it is the way Google did choose.

There is no ROM which does what you want, and most modern apps don't like to be forced to SD either.
