[Q] Kernel Manager
I'm running Adrynalyne's Das BAMF 1.4 with his 4.3a Kernel. I just downloaded the Kernel Manager app and i'm curious if I should first boot into CWM, clear the dalvik cache, then reboot and install the new 4.4.2 Kernel in Kernel Manager or will Kernel Manager give me the option to clear the dalvik/cache when I click "Download & Flash Kernel"?
Any help would be appreciated.
Also, i'm not sure i'm 100% clear on the dalvik cache vs regular cache. I thought I had an understanding, but I want to be sure i'm taking all the right steps when installing new Roms and Kernels.
I see an option in CWM (under Advanced) to "Wipe Dalvik Cache." Is this the only necessary step when installing a new Rom/Kernel? The way i've been doing it is is by doing a factory reset, then clearing Dalvik Cache, then installing Rom, then installing the Kernel.
Are these the right steps? Is there anything else I should be doing?
Thank you XDA, i was only recently introduced to Android and XDA, but I'm starting to learn ADB (manually rooted my phone and have pushed files to SD Card, still learning all the possibilities). This forum is awesome.
