    Default Known issues for ART

    Ok it seems to many of us while using ART are having zero issues so far which I'm wondering how's that even possible. But to those who are having issues with it, state a list of your problems (any) here as I'm one of them. I hope one day Google will look into this thread and will improve the runtime even better.

    So everything runs smooth and perfect for me for the last two days. Even the battery life seems to be better as it goes down to 60% within 9 hours which is quite impressive with normal usage. Though here's a big issue for me and it's Instagram only. I'm not sure if many of you are having the same problem as mine but seriously, Instagram keeps on freezing a lot suddenly and stops working. I've to close the app and open it up to use it again. And when I say a lot, I mean a lot. This is pretty frustrating to me especially when I use the app more than WhatsApp or any other messaging app.

    What's yours?

    Only problem I'm having is some of my favorite games aren't compatible (Pizza Boy and Kingdom Rush 1 & 2). I've switch back to Dalvik for now because of it.

    I got my phone on 31st Dec and switched to ART as soon as it came out the box...I go through periods where I use instagram a lot but have never had any issues...so far my experience has been great...I only see major battery loss over night if my mobile signal is bad or if I forgot to close down all the apps before bed (as I did last night) but apart from that when idle I usually only see 1% battery drain over night. All my apps work as normal so far.

    Can you be more specific? I don't have any issues with SMS or MMS using Hangouts on ART. Are you talking about a particular 3rd party SMS app?

    Only app I've had issues with is Where's My Water 2, but not sure if that's ART or not. everything else has been fine, stable, and fast. Other than root and ART, I haven't done much else with my phone other than load apps.

    I have had ART on for over two months and there is nothing wrong with my SMS/MMS services. ART hasn't had any issues that I have found on my N5 and I do think it improved my battery life since I can go more than two days without a charge when I am using it mainly for voice and texting. I admit I use Textra SMS instead of Hangout that I never could get to work even before I turned on ART.

    BBM 2.0 gives you spotty notifications at least on my Nexus 5 using ART. I switched back to Davlik and i got notifications back. Blackberry needs to fix that.

    I use Simple Notepad and it crashes every week or so and becomes unusable on ART until I move the notes into a new folder, and uninstall reinstall. I should try another note app.

    Very few apps give me a blank screen, not sure if its art related though.

    I think Hello SMS is an app.

    Apparenlty Greenify can have issues with Art, but they've been fixed if you're using the non-experimental version.

    Then again, I loaded it up just to fix a single runaway app. I got nearly 3 days on a single charge a few days ago (with fairly light use admittedly)

    LOL, I thought you were saying, "Hello, SMS is broken with ART"! Sorry for the misunderstanding.

    Since I switched to ART, at times my N5's screen won't turn on and the phone crashes, so I have to do a hard reset on it. This is making me wanna switch back to Dalvik, even though with ART, my battery life has Definitely improved. Aside from that, I've had zero issues. I just worry that one time my phone won't reset and I'll be bricked. Just my kinda luck that makes me worry about that....I'm not rooted btw.

    Been using ART on my Nexus 5 for several months without any real issues other than I cannot use XDA Frameworks until they rewrite it to work with ART.

    My only issue with ART is that I can't use xposed framework app.

    Yeah, that's kinda big deal for me.

    I thought that was impossible as Xposed required the JIT compilation available with Dalvik.

    If that's true, how did you make it work?

    I have xposed installed, and every time I change runtime to ART, and reboot, the system defaults back to Dalvik.

    Based on the recent posts around here I switched to ART for a few days but found some odd app behaviour, a couple of app crashes, and a small bit of occasional lag. I could live with that if the battery life was improved but I found it was no different at all, even possibly worse. I have gone back to Dalvik.

    Switched to Art a week ago or so. Had zero issues first. Zilch. Nut'n

    Now the app "Goggles" crashes sometimes. As I don't really need that app that much, it's no prob for me. And Android L is right around the corner anyway...
