    Does anyone know if I actually have to root my phone for the app Cache Cleaner to work? I installed it but it's telling me I need the app Busy Box for it to run properly. What does Busy Box do?

    Yes, Cache Cleaner requires root.

    You have to have root for it to work. Thanks though, it makes it so much easier to clear the cache now.

    I'm not really sure what Busy Box does, but I needed to install Autokiller also.

    Busybox is a Linux application that provides a small executable that provides most of the Linux command line utilities in a very small package - great for an embedded Linux-based phone like Android.

    See BusyBox
