    In my efforts to free internal memory, I noticed dalvik-cache file has a lot of data in it. All of it is .dex files. Can I just clear this without hurting anything? What is the best way to clear it? I do have Root Explorer.

    You can delete it with root explorer. It will rebuild itself on reboot.
