Thanks for all of the replies! I'm new to android and I've only so far rooted the phone, installed a custom recovery and unlocked the bootloader!
I understand the proceedings to install the Xposed Framework and Gravity box but I'm not sure about busybox.
I've just followed the through with the installation without 'busybox' and everything seems to work fine. Thanks very much guys

I suspect that you are right again at least about the benchmarking. And it could absolutely be my imagination but some apps (not many) do seem faster in operation with the dalvik bionic patch and the one that comes to mind is Feedly. I could be wrong. Anyway.. having the choice to use either one is pretty nice.

Been using Xposed for a while now so I could just be remembering wrong! Maybe it depended on what modulus you were using. Busybox Free (Stericson) is in my opinion the best app for installing busybox if you ever need it, I use the pro version myself. Might want to make a backup if you start modifying system files, flashing kernels or roms.

If you want to spend the time swapping/comparing, use a common lag 'test' and see for yourself.

I haven't tried the patched Dalvik myself since ART, but if it can do what ART does (not placebo), then it's another way to the same goal.
Apologies to OP, I certainly didn't mean to turn this into a Dalvik/ART thread...just that Xposed currently is Dalvik only, but that the dev wants it to be ART compliant in the future.

Oh and seconded on Stericson Busybox Free! Cheers!
