Battery Low SecEmail.apk v4.0 on KK 4.4.2 on i9100

Sorry if this is the wrong Forum

I'm currently running SlimKat 4.4.2 ROM on my trusty old S2 19100, my issue is i hate the standard email client that came with it (Email 4.4.2) and therefore have tried to change it for one from an early ROM (SIV Series 2.05) which is a JB ROM and ran Email 4.0 and Exchange 4.1

I have deleted both Email and Exchange apks from system\apps
rebooted
replaced with SecEmail and SecExchange apks extracted from the older ROM
updated permissions
rebooted
cleared data on both
even wiped data with TBackup
rebooted

Every time i get force close error messages

I have tried 3 variants of the files i want, clean extract from the original ROM zip file, copied from a backup of the older working ROM and Tbackup copy.

I used a copy of the files from this post;
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=4007

and it all worked fine the only difference being it is Email 4.1.2 rather than Email 4.0 which i want.

What am i doing wrong, can i not have Email 4.0 which was running fine on JB 4.1.2 on KitKat 4.4.?

Any help would be gratefully received

Cheers

Pros

Apparently isn't compatible with your current version.

Sent from my LG-P920 using xda app-developers app

Code:
System.out.println("Java is your friend!");

Perhaps 4.4 on your device. Are you using the ART runtime? This may cause issues with certain apps.

System.out.println("Java is your friend!");

Default ART for ART's sake

To be honest i'm not sure, it wouldn't be me that would change the runtime it would be the developers of the ROM, for sure it's using Dalvik, but i don't profess to be anything other than an enthusiastic user, not a developer.

Default To ART or to Dalvik

I have double checked my current ROM and noticed that under developer options it shows the runtime as Dalvik, with the option to choose ART, as i know nothing about ART i am not prepared to just click and play. Therefore i will go off and read what i can about ART, i'm not sure after a couple of hours of reading i will be much the wiser , but i'll give it a go.

Cheers.
