Yes, the phone and account are set up to backup everything to Google. The RAZR will reinstall everything after a Factory Reset, but I can't turn ART on until after the restore - because enabling ART will reboot the phone and abort the restore.
You can stop the auto install after a FR by going into playstore>my apps and telling it too stop. You might miss a app or two.
You can also uninstall just about any apps you have that aren't system through manage apps in settings, or if you have TiBu with the pro key, uninstall all user apps in a batch, then reinstall them manually through the playstore, or through TiBu again. You will be able to choose what apps go, and what apps stay.
What ROM are you using? I have been on SlimKat, and Carbon, both 4.4.2. and have no issues enabling ART after full app install. Then again, I use TiBuPro.
What problems are you having? ART isn't 100% yet.
