Has anyone had any luck with ART?

I would like to try but have only heard problems so far (could not complete, FCs in apps or gapps, out of memory, etc.)

I run ART with no issues on CM11. It does require a restart once a day to stay fast. Battery life is no better that I've noticed. It's nifty but really has no gains.

I have had zero FC's.

Did you download a special gapps package? Or are the most current ones now compatible?

Thanks! Hmm...now if I flash this over my existing installation, what will happen? I don't want to mess up my current install, if at all possible.

On another note, how much free space should we have in our partitions before trying to enable ART.

You're gonna want at least double your used space. And I have no idea about installing over previous.

Looking at my apps in Internal Storage, this would preclude me from utilizing ART.
