I also didnt get app2sd or link2sd to work. (Also tried different sd card formats)
The structure of the Chuwi Rom is not android standard. (Thats also why xposed framework dont work.)
Maybe thats here the reason.

Im using foldermount.I use this to move the big obb files to sd.
Foldermount on the tablet is not as easy to use like on my phone (CM13).
Because of the different folder structure (of the hi8 pro), I always have to set the save location manually for every obb file i move to sd.

I didnt tried to move complete apps with foldermount.
And I`m also interested in a working solution for app2sd or link2sd.
