    Would it be useless to do a factory wipe than restore a nandroid backup?

    Will the restore bring back all the extraneous crap like cache and other stuff?

    Or will the Cache wipe do the same thing with less steps?

    Yes, I am new and having great fun!dancedroid

    Thanks you guys have been so helpful. :)

    Yes it is very helpful, thank you.

    The phone isn't laggy now bc I just flashed CM6.1 and put a custom kernal to it and it is awesome :) but I wanted a good maintenance strategy to keep it that way.
    The only reason that I associate speed with wiping the phone is that I did a factory wipe when it was stock and was shocked at how zippy it was. It was like getting a new phone. Now with the Mod, it is amazing and I love my droid now. I don't feel nearly as pressured to get a new phone yet.

    Also, since the D1 has such limited internal storage, do you find an optimal percentage of internal storage to keep free that will keep the phone fast?
    I much more picky on what resides on the phone nowadays and I use TiBU to move user apps (where appropriate) on the SD card.

    Thanks again for your help.

    I copy my SD to my computer on a regular basis. That provides a backup and an uncluttered SD card.

    Clear your Dalvik once a week. The difference is amazing.

    Will a cache cleaner from the Market clear or do you need to use Root Explorer?

    I use terminal. I don't know if cache cleaner is 100% compatible with all the custom ROMs that store theirs in different locations.

    Is there a thread that explains the various commands to use the terminal with?

    Like how would you tell the terminal to clear Dalvik?

    Also, didn't I see that as an option in ClockworkMod?
