Flashed that after reverting and now my phone is actually faster than it was on ART! I couldn't use it when it first came out because I was still on Viper and it only worked on AOSP based roms with Krait-based Qualcomm chipsets. I encourage you guys to give it a try also because it's been working flawlessly so far and switching back to Dalvik freed up over 500MB in /data and uses a bit less RAM.
Also, yes you have to use the CM11 version.
This patch indeed make my phone felt snappier! Highly recommended.
