    Default Anybody running ART on your RAZR M?

    I just went into developer mode and switched to ART. So far no problems, everything seems to running fine. It's supposed to be faster and friendlier on the battery. I'm wondering if anyone else has or is running it and how it's working for you.

    So far so good. No problems and almost twenty four hours with typical to slightly heavy use since the change and my battery is still almost 50%. Only lost 4% overnight.

    I actually forgot about this ability, until you brought it up.
    I've been on KitKat for a couple weeks and just switched to ART, yesterday.
    I'll let you know if I see any difference.

    Well, I won't be able to report any results, because I got tired of fooling around with KitKat and went back to my rooted M.
    The KitKat M has been relegated to emergency backup duty.

    Mine's still running fine with ART. Battery maybe a little better but still not where it was before the update, but overall I'm happy with it.

    Really, I see no difference in operation and maybe slightly less battery drain. It may depend on which apps your running. You can always go back.

    Killing animation made it seem faster but battery life is still crap. Everything got worse after a factory reset

    I'm contemplating a factory reset but I've never done it and I don't know how much of a hassle it would be or if it would be worth it. My phone is working ok and my battery drain, while worse with kit kat, isn't terrible.

    I'm running it, and it works fine for me.

    I tried it, but I had FC galore and would not run. I rebooted, but it still didn't work.

    I switched to ART a couple of weeks ago and after optimizing my apps, I had no memory left. I started with 1.02GB. I quickly switched back to Dalvik
