Default [mini-GUIDE][ALL VERSIONS][4.4+] How to clean Dalvik Cache without root or CWM

Those are the steps I followed to clean my phone's Dalvik without root or any custom recovery.
This method works only for KitKat versions of Android (4.4+)


1) activate Developer's Settings into Settings Main Menu
2) in Developer's Settings, switch from Dalvik to ART and let phone reboots
3) after reboot, wait till system load all widgets and apps, then switch again from ART to Dalvik and reboot again.

Done! Dalvik is now clean!

Tbh you'd have to be special to be the type of person who hangs around XDA and not know this.

@90paolo: Thnks! it was useful for me.


@dethrat: thank you so much. I was in need to feel special today. ...
Phone Evolution
1- Nokia 5160i <--Bethoven ringtone and snake-awesomess. You could drop it from a building rooftop and it wouldn matter "the begining"
2- Motorola v3 <-- "Flip-phone era"
3- HTC elf 100 <-- Windows. "Smartphone era"
4- Motorola Charm <-- Crazy looking, "Android era"
5- Motorola Defy <-- Still have it, still love it. Pikachu edition and Quarkx. they rock. "Life proof era"
6- Samsung Galaxy Note N-7000 <-- Now it actually feels as it was meant to be. The TRUE smartphone era.
