Switch Between Dalvik and ART from Recovery with a Single AROMA-Based ZIP

You may recall that a few days ago, we talked about a simple recovery-flashable ZIP by XDA Senior Member husen4u that allowed users to switch between ART and Dalvik runtime compilers directly from their custom recoveries. This tool actually came in the form of two scripts—one to enabled ART, and the other to enable Dalvik.

Naturally, the previously covered tool would be even more efficient if the two functions were combined into a single, AROMA-based ZIP file. Well, this is basically what XDA Senior Member hnkotnis has done. The aptly titled D2A_RT allows you to choose between ART and Dalvik runtime compilers right from your custom recovery. And since this comes in the form of an AROMA-based package, these two functions are combined into a single ZIP.

Using the package is incredibly easy. You simply flash it like any other ZIP file from your custom recovery and then use your touch screen to select which runtime compiler to use.

If you’re looking for a single archive that lets you choose your runtime compiler directly from your recovery, head over to the original thread and give this a whirl.
