Default Android is upgrading. Every boot. ART only

Having just rooted and unlocked boot loader, my N5 is giving the "android is upgrading" message for 80+ apps (half the usual) on EVERY reboot. This behaviour is only seen with ART runtime. Not with Dalvik. It was also not seen when on ART in stock form. Running Franco r14 kernel with stock rom. Any ideas?

Thats how it is every boot it has to pre compile the code for apps

Hmm...but in pre root form, this only happened the first time after selecting runtime. Now its happening every reboot! Is this supposed to be normal for a rooted phone?

I don't see that issue on my s2 skyrocket running 4.4 art. I'm not running art on my n5. I'm guessing it's an issue with the franko kernel, but that's just a guess

This happens to my N5 as well. Omni 12/01 nightly + Franco r14

This is not normal behavior at all on stock ROM. When you switch to ART, it only does the upgrade/compile thing on the first boot. Having it redo it after every reboot is probably a compatibility issue with the ROM you are running.

That's my recollection as well. It still is on stock ROM. But it looks like other people who have rooted are facing issues that might have arose from kernel or app issues.

I have already wiped cache and rebuilt dalvik fwiw. Also uninstalled titanium backup while no weird odex files are noted. Only Franco kernel left as last data point but I wanted to see if others faced this problem before taking the plunge to reinstall stock kernel

It does not happen on stock rooted for me either. I would suggest returning to stock rooted to use ART. According to Omni threads they are in nightlies so stuff is expected to be wrong.

Fwiw. I've flashed stock kernel, reflashed the patched libart.so (ie. Whatsapp compatibility fix) , reinstalled whatsapp. Still no joy.
