Be very careful when using f2fs... Basically it's very very fast, BUT you are stuck with it. You can't flash other kernels, and you can flash only certain roms that support f2fs, otherwise the rom reformats the system partition to ext4. I had this on my galaxy s3, and it got me in tons of trouble when I tried to flash anything to it. I had to go back to stock twice and restore my efs partition... It's a lot of work basically.

So, what I should do is to reformat the partitions with the recovery, install CyanogenMod M3 release via sideload, and then do the same thing for your special kernel, right? :)

So CM is absolutely necessary? With S3 any ROM can be restored after F2FS format and it worked
