    Default Re: How to clear your Cache (stock)

    Hey bradenfontaine--you may want to modify your instructions. When I get to the Android System Recovery menu, I find that the Vol Up and Vol Down buttons will move up and down on the menu, and the Power button makes the selection (as opposed to the first menu, where Vol Up makes the selection).

    What happens when cache is cleared? What data is lost?

    It clears various browsing data, such as stored pictures, movies etc. It also clears cached app data that is stored in /cache. It doesn't clear /dalvik-cache.

    What's dalvik cache, how is that different from just plain old cache. And... if not switching ROMs is there a good reason to periodically clear your cache? Does it improve performance?

    dalvik cache is a program cache area for the program dalvik. Dalvik is a java based virtual machine that is the bases for running your programs (the ones that have the .apk extension). In order to make access times faster (because there's not JIT (just in time) compiler installed by default), the dalvik-cache is the result of dalvik doing a optimization of the running program. Sounds confusing. It's similar to the prefetch files in Windows.

    clearing your cache has been reported to improve stability and performance.

    THANKS!
    Hoping this will improve battery life after JB update!
    It sure did on my Droid X after GB!

    ETA: This is for my current Razr M.
    The wipe is completed. Going to fully drain battery and re-charge to comple the task (fingers crossed).

    How much better is this method in comparison to 3rd party apps like App Cache Cleaner?

    I don't trust third party apps to do a good enough job basically. Unless you're rooted and have an AOKP variant with scripts to run a wipe on boot. That is my favorite way to go personally

    Apps like that only clear cache for app data. Doing it from recovery will clear system cache

    So this method no longer works in JB. I have attempted it a number of times. You can get into the first menu to select 'Recovery' but once you select that, the Motorolla symbol pops up and then a quick black screen. No matter when you press volume up and down (or even if you don't press anything), the 'Dead' Android with the exclamation point coming out of his open stomach pops up. Then, you have to press and hold the power button to get the system to reboot. Any ideas how to get to the screen to clear the cache?

    Any update? My Maxx is still acting wonky. Need to clear the cache to, hopefully, make it right again.

    nope i just tried it and you're right, i got the same results. until someone comes out with another way id suggest using SD Maid Pro for system cleanups until further notice.

    What you gotta do is be persistent and keep pressing the volume up and down button until the menu comes up, it works still but it just takes a long time for the menu to come up.
