But it shouldn't be important when you remove it?

So you could flash the image and still delete the dalvik cache.

Should make no difference...

what is the point in deleting your dalvik cache? I mean, someone who only uses cyans roms and sometimes changes themes would not need to do this right?

Over time you phone can start getting sluggish. If you clear the dalvik cache it will speed it back up. Just had to do this the other night. I did mine in terminal this way

Code:
$su
#cd /system/sd/dalvik-cache
#rm *
#exit
$exit

Naw it don't. You will just need to reboot your phone when you are done and it will take a long time to boot up just like if you just flashed a new rom, so don't get scared.
