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.
