Default Private mode on ART?

Hey does private mode work for anyone in ART? It works well on dalvik, but I tried out art and it didn't seem to work as well...Can anyone confirm or negate this?

I've heard that neither private mode or screen mirroring work on ART. Haven't tried it myself because of that.

Thanks for the heads up.. I knew ART was experimental and not fully working yet...

I can indeed confirm that using the ART runtime mode will in fact prevent you from using Screen Mirroring and Private Mode.

I switched back to Dalvik and the those features were enabled and fully functional again.I felt that using ART sped up my system performance and my phone seemed smoother, but it could just be a placebo effect.

Is ART really THAT much better than Dalvik? Or is it marginally better? Perhaps, better on some phone than others?
