How to use the Android L ART virtual machine on your device

Saving the technicalities, let’s say the Dalvik environment only supports 32-bit applications, while the new virtual machine, ART, it is capable of running 64-bit applications. Although we are still waiting for the first smartphones with 64-bit processors to appear and become widespread, the truth is that already we can use this environment on our device to see how performance is increased in general of this one.

Of course, to carry out these steps what we have to take into account is that only works with Android 4.4 KitKat or higher versions, so this method will only be for the newest smartphones. For example, some in which we can use ART will be the Samsung Galaxy S5, the HTC One M8, the LG G3 and devices such as the Nexus or Motorola Moto range. Now, what do we have to do to enjoy some of the advantages of Android L?

The first thing we have to do is get to “Settings”And navigate to the end of this menu to select the optionβ€œAbout of the phone”. In this section you will see the “Build Number” or “Build number“, Which we will have to press for 7 times consecutively to enable the developer options -A message will appear confirming it-. The second step will be to return to the Settings menu and find the new option “Developer options” that has just appeared and where you can select the option “Select runtime”.

At that time we will only have to select the ART button (Dalvik will be selected by default) and voila, from that moment on we will use the new Android L virtual machine. As you can see, the procedure is very simple and with it you can easily increase the performance of your device.
