Edit: Still not working, The installation was fast and went fine without any errors. How does it know that it needs to boot from MicroSD?

Below is my partition configuration, I have 64GB SDXC card.
1) Fat32 2) Ext4 3) Ext4

I am using _that's V4 kernel during installation.

Giving Rom2SD another try, following these instructions from TF700 thread:

Quote:

Remember you must have a fast microSD card formatted with a fat32, ext4 for /data and ext4 for /system in GPARTED for Rom2sd.
1. You need a fast microsd card - preferably at least a 16GB Class 10 - UHS-1 card like a sandisk or Samsung with a read speed of over 20MB/s
2. You need to use Linux or how I did it a GParted ISO on a Bootable USB Stick on a PC
3. In GParted set up your micro sd with 3 partitions all primary (no logical) in this order FAT32, EXT4, EXT4
They will be used as SDCARD, /data, /system in that order so I recommend the following sizes for a 16GB sdcard; 4GB for SDCard, 11GB for /data and 1GB for system or thereabouts.
If you used a 32GB or 64GB card then increase the SDCard and /data partitions as you see fit (I went with 16GB, 47GB and 1GB on my 64GB card)
4. You must have already installed CROMi-X with ROM2SD compatibility selected from the installer and have it working - dirty or clean will work.
5. Install the ROM2SD version and let it finish. Let it reboot.
6. You should be presented with a clean install setup wizard when it boots if it has worked. If it hasn't worked you will be back at your previous CROMi-X/miniC installation launcher.
7. Job done - set up your ROM2SD however you like - it can't interfere with your normal setup
8. You will notice 2 folders on root - datai and sdcardi - these allow you to see your internal /datai and sdcardi partitions if you wish to copy files over
9. As long as the SDCard is inserted you will boot to ROM2SD, remove it (not whilst in android unless you want to crash) and on that boot you will switch back to your normal miniC or CROMi-X if you installed that to SD.

It seems to be working following the steps mentioned for TF700

I have to first install a ROM to Internal Memory(Rom2SD Compatibility mode), boot it up. Let it run for few minutes.
Reboot to recovery, and then install the ROM again with Rom2SD option.

So basically now I will have 2 ROMS installed on my TAB, 1 normal installation and another on MicroSD.

I am seeing some random reboots on the ROM installed on MicroSD, but I have to wait for a while and see if it gets stabilized.

Thanks for this wonderful ROM.

How did you partition your sd card with gparted? See if you can run e2fsk on the partition whilst in twrp:


e2fsck -fvyD /dev/block/mmcblk1p2

I'm using Minitool Partition Wizard on Windows, it always works for me.

I can execute that command successfully, it outputs summary information about the files on MicroSD ext4 partition and there is no error.

Most people who used Minitool for Data2SD had problems, but nobody investigated why so far.

Can you please post the output of

Code:
fdisk -l /dev/block/mmcblk1
?

Download it again and try flashing it again.

This is exactly why I posted checking the md5 of your download is CRUCIAL. So many people skip this step yet is one of the most important ones lol. A bad download can still flash and work, but also will give you all sorts of hell after the flash. It is easy and takes only seconds to compare the md5 against Sbdags md5 in the OP.

This ROM is so good that ever since i flashed it some 10 months ago i never came back to XDA to check new ROM development. Made my tablet awesome.
Just wanted to thank the developers. You are the best!

Also I sign all my files which means that if you turn signature verification on in TWRP it will do a file check for you and will stop if the signature doesn't match. I recommend everyone turn it on by default
