I only ask as Xposd isnt compatible with ART.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/xpos...-post-t2327541 - Theres a list of xposed modules and im sure one is root cloak or something.

Best advice I can give, read all the stickies in Q&A AND General.... Ask as many questions as you can if theres something you dont understand. We're happy to help, but it's easier to help those who have read up first
