    I did all the instructions and it worked, thanks!
    But I have a question/problem , I can't use any app2sd method in this ROM! I've tried , link2sd, dt2sd,enganged and all that I could find , but none of them actually works.
    Can you indicate a method that works ?

    • I haven't tried it and that is why we always refer you to the thread on XDA where people actually try it out. You can ask them for a workaround 🙂
