PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I've been flashing CyanogenMod 9 nightlies for months now, and the process to do so has become pretty much muscle memory at this point (if cwm ever changes its menu order I'm screwed). One step of this process has always fascinated me simply because I have no idea what exactly it does and why I have to do it: clearing Dalvik cache.

I've been using GooManager for a while (yes, it's on Google Play) to flash the nightly CM9 ROMs on my HP TouchPad - it might knock a step or two off your procedure, Thom! A bonus with GooManager is that it lists non-CM9 ROMs too, plus knows about the various Google Apps versions and will let you add those as well.

RomManager anyone?

It used to work great for CM9 nightlies. For some reason it doesn't list them, only the CM7's now.

In any case, a nightly in late june screwed up wifi bandwidth or latency. Then I screwed up and accidentally installed a CM 7.2 over CM9 with not fun results. Had to do a full wipe of data to get the phone working again. But it works great now!

I prefer doing stuff like this in a sparse and Spartan environment - it better fits the task. On top of that, I prefer the old-fashioned non-touch cwm, since using touch instead of the physical volume/power buttons just seems like a very stupid idea for dangerous and possibly destructive tasks like this.
