    Data & cache is supported, but system isn't. Installing an F2FS-supported kernel may enable F2FS support in system too. Just confirm with another person/dev before continuing (cuz I am not 100% sure) :)

    Hi.

    I've formatted my /data and /cache to F2FS from ext4. I'm using TWRP 3.1.0-0.

    Since the format, I cannot delete large files and I cannot create new files. Is it a permission issue or did the format break the file system?

    SultanXDA CM13 Rom.

    After restoring my nandorid backup I got this issue.
    The nandroid backup was made on ext4

    is not a good idea to restore ext4 backup over f2fs filesystem...
    use titanium backup instead at app level, and do a clean install.
