Its good and bad. Its good because it frees up alot of memory but its bad because it slows your phone down because the dalvik cache just keeps building up and up and you need a high class sdcard or it will slow your phone down more also. And when you wipe dalvik cache in recovery it will wipe dalvik cache on internal,sdext, ect

Sorry I don't know other than it gives you more internal memory. Maybe ask over on the androidforum.

Actually, that could be why the few times I ran 3.5 ROMS, the lag was almost unbearable at times
