In Lollipo? Yes.

I was asking about using ART in the 4.4 kitkat Odys Iron build you recommended in links...Already flashed the ROM and seems to work fine, first impressions are really good.
I did not tried Lollipop build because it is still an alpha build and this Yarvik Noble Mini is my kid tablet to play games...
That is why I dont buy from unknown China brands. Brands like ONDA/PiPo/Lenovo/ Chuwi are OK, at least there are Forums supporting these brands.
About Me LENOVO S939 MTK6592 Vibe 2.0 - 1507,LENOVO A8-A5500 KitKat MTK8382 S029,Lenovo Tab2 A7-30HC MT8382 Lollipop,LENOVO A880 S027 MTK6582 (JB),ONDA V975m V3 AMLOGIC M802 (KitKat), PiPo M9Pro RK3188 KASTY ROM (KitKat # 407 Mod), ZENITHINK ZTPAD:C93 Duo Core AMX CM10.2_rc-3, Z102 And. 4.0.4, C91 And. 4.0.4,AIGO M60 Android 4.04 6" A13 (rooted).Lenovo A369i 4.2.2 S011 ROW
On this case it seems at least this forum/topic suports Yarvik Noble Mini, Android 4.4 and even Lollipop (must resist to flash it) for me is more than i ever expected.
The truth is that i dont see so much diference from official suport from the brands you mentioned and Yarvik, i did not get Kitkat on Chuwi V88 fom the brand and i doubt any Onda/Pipo/Lenovo with 6 months or more on market will get a Lolipop OTA, they will depend on the community (probably a bigger one) just like the others.
But i cant really complain, 66€ for an 8'' tablet with IPS screen and rk3188 chipset would be always a good deal, even stuck with Android 4.2.2 for life...
Worst than Yarvik lack of support is BQ (a well known and established brand now in Portugal/Spain) that after 2/3 months release discontinued a tablet costing 3 times more (bq Tesla) leaving it to die with Android 4.04 and without OMA/CrewRKTablets would never seen Jelly Bean.
Feedback on Android 4.4 on Yarvik Noble mini :
- Fast, stable, unified storage
- ART ativated on 4.4 with no issues
- Cant change wallpaper maybe due to CM11 theme engine, boot animations also are not applied ?!
I am really tempted to flash alpha build of Lollipop, i will have wireless but how stable should it be for playing games? This is the main use of this tablet, anyone with some feedback on this even on other rk3188 tablets with this alpha build?
Rotation inside games is also not reliable, sometimes it flips upside down...
As soon as someone answers the question about rockchip bootloader on previous post, i will try Lollipop to see if the build is more stable on these issues :
- aplicaton stopped on launch of some games (Angry Birds GO, Plants vs Zombies (1 and 2), Invizimals)
- Screen rotation flips upside down in a few games, but works fine on desktop screen
It is a shame because this 4.4 on the rest really rocks...
In case of going back to Yarvik official Android 4.2, is there a way to unify storage just like in these 4.4/Lollipop ROMs ?!
