    My Canadian Bell Mobility HTC One M7 just got upgraded to 4.4.2
    ART runtime was taken out of firmware by Bell Mobility , I presume.
    Do HTC One's from other carriers have the ART vs Dalvik option ?
    My N7 2013 has 4.4.2 with ART and it's GREAT.

    Thanks for your replies

    Don't have a One. I do find this odd though, so I'm commenting just so I can follow the thread.

    I wonder if ART isn't "stable" enough to keep Bell happy? Or don't want to be bothered with having to train tech support to deal with possible issues arising from using it (as opposed to Dalvik)?

    Edit: HTC seems to be the one that disabled ART

    my international unlocked version does not have the option to select between art and dalvik so i presume the decision was made by htc.


    there is a way to enable it, though:


    [MOD][DEV][HOW-TO] Enable Android Runtime (ART) - xda-developers


    EDIT: or maybe not... people on that thread have experienced issues with that solution. if you really want it, i am sure the solution is out there somewhere, though.

    Sense 5.5 not supported on ART, so I guess that's why HTC disabled this option.
