Fix for link2sd (credit to kansar)
Try moving/deleting init.d script “05mountsd” then reconfigure link2sd, that script interferes with Link2sd’s sd-ext partition mounting script
While installing this build & testing it might leave you unsatisfied, this is definitely very good news. This is THE news people have been waiting for. Not only After the final version release, not only the users will have a definite version to install but the devs will also be able to use it as a base for a custom ROM.
