    Is there anyway to do this? All the threads I'm finding seem to be pretty old, and no one mentions if you can do it without a custom ROM. I would like to:

    1. root with Super One Click
    2. move dalvik cache for all apps to SD card

    I don't want to jack around with a custom ROM b/c that seems to complicated.

    If I understand right, you can CLEAR your dalvik cache without a custom ROM by using Titanium Backup Pro, but it will just rebuild itself after you use your apps so what's the point.

    *edit* sorry should have put a ? in the title, it makes it seems like the answer is in the original post... sorry if I got your hopes up.

    You don't need Titanium Backup Pro to clear your cache. Install Terminal Emulator (in Android Market), and enter the following commands:
    Code (Text):
    2. su
    3. cd /data/dalvik-cache
    4. rm *
    5. exit
    The first time you run 'su' you'll get a prompt from SuperUser to confirm the authorization, which you will want to approve. You also should reboot your phone after doing this.

    The main benefit is to make sure your uninstalled apps are fully cleared out. IIRC, removing stock apps via Titanium Backup doesn't remove the cache files, so you want to purge the cache after cleaning out the crapware to maximize the space you reclaim.

    I rooted my phone, removed a lot of apps using Root App Delete, but I haven't freed memory. I followed the instructions above and freed a lot of space, but some apps don't work. After rebooting, the phone goes back to just 15 Mb available of system memory. How can I keep all the free space so I can install bigger apps?

    It is the same to do it with the option in Link2SD??
