I used to work as a software engineer for Google, working on Android (2005-2014). I spent five years working on Dalvik (2006-2011), and two on system-level graphics (2012-2014).

I've written a few documents for Android developers that now appear on the official site:

I also wrote Grafika and run bigflake.com.

comment Manually switch from ART to Dalvik
FWIW, doing "setprop persist.sys.dalvik.vm.lib libdvm.so" would have the same effect -- the "persist" properties are persisted by writing them to a file.

comment How to find out the amount of memory allocated to each application in my android phone?
16MB hasn't been the limit for a long time (G1 days). See stackoverflow.com/questions/2298208/… for a verbose description of Android memory usage.
