    I have a 1.5 firmware flashback
    Rom, and I was wondering if you can flash from a 1.5 firm to like a 2.2 and skip the 2.1 ?
    Thanks

    Yep. Once you're rooted and have the custom recovery installed, it won't matter what rom you flash. Check the sticky for a list of popular roms. You don't have to flash kaosfroyo as the rooting and flashing instructions indicate. You can flash any of the roms, for any version of android.

    Thanks ! Also, I have one more question if you could answer it. What is the dalvik cache ?

    Basically, android converts apps into a more compressed form and stores it in the dalvik before it executes. This is to maximize the limited resources of a mobile device.

    Google it for detail.
