I was looking in the developer options and noticed I can switch between ART and Dalvik. Has anyone switched to it in the D801 and if so is there any stability problems?

Switched over to ART and Jishnu's modded camera app won't work with it, so I switched back. Didn't notice any difference in battery life or speed while on ART.

ART is just a placebo as of now, there are no real benefits in using it.

Can you explain why you think this is? I read a few articles on Android Authority and Android Police, both of the sites confirmed that ART runs quicker and is more efficient on the battery than DALVIK.

I switched back to Dalvik after I noticed a few problems with certain apps. Even had a little problems with the XDA app. ART isn't optimized for all apps yet. I wouldn't recommend using ART yet.

Been using it for the past few days. The first boot with ART gave me mediocre battery results but I'm guessing everything had to settle because since that boot I've been able to observe a noticeable difference in longevity. As far as performance goes, I can't tell the difference between ART and Dalvik.

I noticed my phone was generally quicker in most things, but I was getting random screen freezes so switched back to dalvik, Ran on ART for about a week. Im on 100% stock.
