nah, flashing updates will replace files in elsewhere with new ones but not /data partition nor /sd-ext partition therefore flashing updates will not clear your internal memory. if people did not use any a2sd scripts then their apps and data will not be changed after flashing an update.
however as we use darktremor a2sd script, files in the /system partition and other places which are directing apps and dalvik to our sd-ext, are removed when we flash the update. so thats why we will have to flash darktremor zip again everytime we update our ROM. note that we dont have to do this when we update our kernels only.
no, you dont need to do anything related to the activation of darktremor after updating the ROM and flashing the script together. not in A2SDGUI nor terminal emulator. your apps and data will just be there and because you NEED to wipe dalvik before ROM flash, the dalvik cache will start to build up in /sd-ext by itself on first boot. thats why the first boot will be long.
For your reference so you dont have to try it yourself - if you dont flash darktremor together with the ROM, you will just get all android package icons after you boot the phone and none of your app with activate until you wipe cache and dalvik again in recovery and flash the darktremor zip, everything will show up correctly.
in case if you face force closes at anytime after you did things related to darktremor, run a fix_permission and reboot then everything will be fine!

Pls guide me.
do a quick search "how to install darktremor" or search this thread, got not much time enough to teach you from installing recovery to finish a2sd...
