Default [Q] Switching to ART doesn't work.

Hello everyone,

For some reason my phone won't switch to ART as I really want to try it out. I'm running CM11 latest nightly. CM kernel. No mods or anything.

This is my second attempt and it just seems to be booting forever. I've already got an answer in the CM thread and was told to wait a few more minutes. That time it took was already 30 minutes so restored a backup.

Trying it again right now but don't have my hope set to high.

Any information, input, ideas?

Thanks!
Device: Samsung Galaxy SIII GT-I9300
ROM: CyanogenMod 11 Latest nightly
Kernel: CyanogenMod Stock
Runtime: ART

ART is an experimental feature, work in progress... To make it work you'll need full wipe, flash ROM, you'll need proper GApps that is compatible with the ROM. Many apps are incompatible with ART, there will be issues for sure. I'd suggest you to stick with Dalvik for a while. KitKat is a big improvement even with Dalvik!
