How big is the Dalvik Cache allowed to get?

    Just curious if it is permitted to grow unlimited amounts.

    I try to clear mine regularly by going into \data\dalvik-cache and deleting everything then rebooting.

    Today for example, my available Internal memory was about 18MB. I wiped the cache then went back into Titanium Backup and had around 55MB free!

    After a fresh reboot (and no launching of apps or anything) I was back to about 25MB free.

    Just seems goofy to me, that's a heck of a lot of cache data for a phone with so little internal memory imo! :eek:

    ShabbyMod Loaded 0.9.

    yeah it sucks. link2sd can move delvik-cache to sd. but when u restart, things are back to square one. android developers really need to make apps install in sd card completely like iphones. we should be worrying abt internal memory anymore if we have installed a memory card :)
