/* Switch to f2fs */
As mentioned above, this kernel fully supports f2fs.
However, you are completely free to choose not to use f2fs.
You can selectively convert partitions to f2fs using TWRP provided in the downloads.
You should use the provided TWRP at all times after you switched to f2fs.

you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you. Hard. A lot.
