I switched today from dalvik to ART to see if there is any noticeable battery performance or speed differences. When I rebooted I all of a sudden to my surprise got the custom unlock screen can anyone explain or elaborate? Should I get a new device.?

Many threads asking this question.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2752888

Please search before posting; it would help everybody a lot

Also, to answer your question, the lockpad just signifies that you are running in ART mode. Beware though, some things like Private Mode DON'T work with ART so you will have issues.

hit thanks if I helped

I learned the hard way that private mode didn't work which sucks because I was enjoying the extended battery life that comes along with ART
P.S. sorry for not searching more on the subject
