    clearing cache partition

    Would someone mind explaining what clearing the cache partition does, and what files if any, when you do this

    It clears out temporary files.. think of it like cleaning your room.. doing a system wide cache wipe is cleaning your room on a grand scale, doing per app is just cleaning a cubical...

    Clearing your cache...

    You can clear the cache on a certain app by going into manage apps, find the app, open it, tap clear cache...

    How does this differ from downloading a cache cleaning app?

    Doing it from recovery ensures that no apps are running, therefore nothing would be missed. If using an app, it's a possibility some of the cache could be missed due to running apps that aren't properly killed.

    Excellent. So i think i should just delete my cache cleaner, and do it from recovery from now on. Anyone have a theory on how often this should be done?

    Once a day, once a week, once a month, depends on if you feel you need it. You can do it whenever your phone feels sluggish, if you want. That doesn't always work for me. You can take 94lt1's suggestion on once a week and that should be fine for you. It also depends on how quickly you get tired of doing it.

    I do a hard reset and clear out the cache usually once a week, just keeping things fresh and clean as possible.
