I've enabled developer options from tapping the build number however there's no option to enable the ART runtime. Any clue in why the Korean version doesn't have this and how I can enable it via a different approach?

Thanks.

It is libdvm.so.

Unfortunately it seems that ART isn't an option. But, given that there isn't an option, that suggests that some part of the code simply doesn't work with ART. Only samsung knows what!

Exactly my point. Presumably some parts of the Samsung software aren't compatible with ART for this CPU/GPU. And hence why the option isn't there. Of course, I might take a backup at some point as try it, but not yet.

So, when Android L comes out will it not be able to work with ART?

In fact, it would be highly unlikely that the core system apps would be incompatible with ART given that Samsung would know Google's plans to make ART the primary cache method in Android L. Nevertheless, many non system apps are known to be incompatible at this time.

Maybe. But why didn't Samsung include the option for just this model then? Seems very odd. Maybe Koreans don't like ART?

[edit - Actually, what is more likely is some carrier installed bloat is probably not compatible... Hence removing the option was probably easier for them??]
