Has anyone tried to force ART by editing build.prop?

Have any of you tried to force ART by changing

Code:
persist.sys.dalvik.vm.lib=libdvm.so
to
Code:
persist.sys.dalvik.vm.lib=libart.so
??? Did it work?

I'm kind of a noob and don't want to edit my build.prop and end up going into a boot loop or something as I don't have a custom recovery installed, I'm only rooted, using .402 firmware.

It doesnt work

Ive tried several methods of forcing art

Either it doesnt work or it causes a bootloop

I say just wait for Android 5 to come with Art by default

Not too sure, some important process that is needed for the system to boot

Uh-oh... So that means Android L update for Sony smartphones (such as Z2) will be delayed for a good amount of time.

Yes, this is because they have to rewrite about 200 apps within the system

I do believe they are working on android 5.0 but im sure it wont be ready for another few months at the least
