comment App Memory Hog Problem
Yes, very much so, system apps have a preference to run from internal storage regardless if rooted, moved about, there's your answer.

comment App Memory Hog Problem
Your internal storage space could be running out, minimum threshold is at least 35MB free, there could be crash logs lying around (ANR logs) that may be chewing up space.

Try Nexus Root Toolkit which should do the job.

comment THE resource for rooting your phone?
that question is clearly opinion based, to each and their own, different websites etc, there are a few resources tagged with root that might guide you.

comment Can you change the runtime on an encrypted phone (KitKat)?
I would be inclined to think that the encryption and therefore, encrypted apps and their runtime are dalvikvm based, hence switching to ART will not work as its entirely different, apps are the same but underneath the runtime engine's bonnet - different. On the next release of Android, this will be default - ART that is, and would expect the same thing to happen that you're experiencing, in the exact opposite - ART and encrypted device, switching to DalvikVM will revert back to ART.

Decrypt the device, convert to ART, then re-encrypt again?

comment Why custom roms are .zip filed than made as .ftf
More than likely, yes, there's a few that comes with Flashtool buried in their respective folders. Use the wrong ftf for your device could result in a fine mess, so beware. Each of them are Sony model specific, for example, using Xperia Mini's ftf on a Xperia Sola model will have consequences.

comment Why custom roms are .zip filed than made as .ftf
Hang on, .ftf/.elf are kernel images (read that sentence above!). If you compile your own kernel, special handling is required to convert the kernel image into a .ftf/.elf. If you're talking about ROMs as a whole, that is contained in a zip, ready for flashing via CWM or TWRP. The kernel needs to be manually flashed first before flashing the ROM itself. Look at LegacyXperia and follow their corresponding threads. What part of this do you not understand?

.ftf / .elf are more of kernel images specific to Sony, IIRC, FlashTool can combine them into that image specifically for this case, there's a script lying around somewhere on Sony's OpenSource portal to do that for you.

.ftf are more suited for the older line of Xperia devices and is proprietary format, the trend with newer Sony devices is .elf instead. The custom ROM's you're referring to is more of a "universal generic" method, some manufacturers are free to deviate and use their own method of how its done.

comment A13 Allwinner Camera and Gravity Sensor
Only way is to 1) get the "similar ROM from another tablet company" it is 4.0.4 right? 2) compare with the official ROM you obtained and flashed with (4.0.4) 3) possibly extract that kernel from the good working version, and replace it with what you have in place. It must be the same version!
