You don’t need the latest Android version to get its features for performance enhancements. You can do so by just an easy process. Read on!
On Wednesday, 26th June 2014, Google announced an update for its Android Operating System (OS) at the I/O Developer’s Conference in San Francisco.
Android’s latest version, code named Android L comes with a newly constructed notification system, an improved user interface, updated unlock features, and an all new battery saving mode. The update which aims to it the market later part of the year, also looks enhance functionality for double app performance thanks to the new ART runtime. The thing is not many people are aware of the facts that that you actually don’t need Android L to enable ART on your mobile phones or tablets.
Many would remember Google launched ART last year, 213, with the Android 4.4 KitKat and Nexus 5; this means your device must be having KitKat for this process. Having said that it must be noted that not all Android 4.4 devices at this time support ART; in fact, we can surely confirm that this very method actually work for the Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One M8, Moto X and of course for all of Google’s Nexus devices. However, some other mobile devices, like the LG G2, a Korean model, also have the ability to enable ART.
But now you can have the latest update from Android, and the process is very easy indeed. It is a simple step. Go to the settings menu and tap on the Developer option. And then once you have done that select About Phone and then tap or click on build number seven times. What this will do is enable your mobile’s or tablet’s Developer options; and that in turn will give you access to the more improved and advanced settings.
Thereafter, from the settings menu you have to select the Developer options and move or scroll down until you Select runtime and then choose ART. After you are done with the process of rebooting your mobile or tablet, it will start to optimize your applications for the newly formed runtime. This new process will take a few minutes to complete; but after its completion you will definitely experience a significant boost in the performance on your device.
You should keep in mind here that, some, or rather a very few, apps may not run (if they are incompatible) with the ART runtime. So in case of the applications you use are not responding or performing up to your expectation, simply move back to the Dalvik mode without delay, using the same process.
