Changing runtime to ART

When I go to developer options and change the runtime from Dalvik to ART it does not work. It asks me to reboot, after reboot it says it's still using Dalvik. Any ideas?

If you are using Xposed, it will not switch over. Xposed only runs on dalvik runtime. I uninstalled Xposed and still could not switch back over and had to format and start over.

Damn, the main thing I use on Xposed is the G3 Tweakbox, which I actually really like. Is switching to ART worth it?

I guess it just depends on how you use your phone. I bought the G3 Tweakbox app. I used it and found the same ART, Dalvik issue. The only reason I'm running ART is basically to test it out and see if I like how it handles. Xposed should support ART once Android "L" is released.

I personally prefer the advantages of Xposed and G3 Tweaksbox. When I ran ART before we had root, my phone did appear to be smoother, but certain chromecast apps wouldn't work and I had freezing and rebooting issues.

ART and xposed should work sometime after the full release of android L.

I used art pre root, honestly I saw no real improvement or lack thereof.
