    It doesn't hurt anything to wipe dalvik and cache, I usually do when I flash themes. Whether or not it is needed I can not be sure. Make sure to do a nand first though.

    I wipe it before any kind of mod. It gets re-written when the phone boots but it eliminates some possible problems when the theme/kernel/mod is flashed.

    Where did you find the themes if you dont mind me asking? Also I had to downgrade my PRI to 1.77 so my netarchey kernnel would work with my last rom, Is it okay if I leave it like that for this rom or should I upgrade and see if the kernnel behaves it self? Thanks for the help.

    4.5 is a deodex rom while 4.6 is 100% Odex. I believe that makes the themes for 4.5 not compatible with 4.6

    They are working on themes.

    chogardjr has already released his theme for 4.6, and aamakim has released his 4.5 stock theme for 4.6 as well.

    I think a lot of people were. Apparently it provides max data storage room and a fast response (whatever that means).

    I'm loving it so far.
