    Question How to Wipe Cache WITHOUT doing a Factory Reset

    My Droid Razr Maxx has become slow lately. Someone suggested wiping my cache. I DO NOT want to do a factory reset. Somewhere I saw instructions how to do this but cannot find them now. Can someone help me please?

    Re: How to Wipe Cache WITHOUT doing a Factory Reset

    You do this within stock recovery... there will be an option to wipe data or cache so just pick cache. I don't own a regular Maxx but the process should be similar. Hold volume up + volume down + power. Select recovery at the menu, press volume up + volume down simultaneously at the android screen and you will be in stock recovery. Scroll down to wipe cache and then reboot.

    Someone step in if the key combo is incorrect. Should be fine.

    Only one thing to add to GoCliffGo05's right-on instructions...when you scroll down do clear cache press the power key to select, then scroll to reboot and select with the power key.

    Is there a free app that does cache clearing process safely? (If so, and there are several, which is best?) To me that would seem like a good alternate method for this.
    Also, I know with my old phone that RAM usage was a common problem, so maybe a free app that closes unneeded programs could make the phone faster too? (If so, and there are several, which is best?)

    You can also uninstall updates/stop apps from working. Useful for stopping bloatware.

    There is an app called All-In-One Toolbox that I just recently started using. In the Tools sections there is a tool called Cache Cleaner. I haven't tested it yet but it may be something you can try out.

    Re: How to Wipe Cache WITHOUT doing a Factory Reset

    Correct me if I am wrong, but there are 2 kinds of caches that can be independently cleaned/wiped:
    App cache(s)
    Dalvik (system/vm) cache

    There are a number of apps (free) in Play Store that claim to clear cache. I've used a few of them and found that 1TapCleaner seems to do the best job of identifying all apps with cache that can be cleared. The best cleaner I've found is either Titanium Backup or SDMade, but you have to have root to use them. Titanium Backup with also clear Delvik cache.

    I found two apps in the Google Play Store that the OP might find useful. ES Task Manager and ES File Explorer. There is a button in ES Task Manager to completely wipe cache, or you can see a list and clear it one app at a time. Between these two programs there are a ton of useful things you can do.
