    Go into the Apps setting and any cache in the apps can be cleared out from there the button will be lit up. I believe there is also a cache app in the market someone mention.

    Setting > Applications > Manage Applications

    From there you can click the ALL button to show everything that is can cleared if there's any cache that needs to be cleaned up. Main thing will be the browser.

    If you want to wipe the cache partition, you do it from Recovery. There is an option there for it.

    Boot into recovery mode by pressing power on while holding down the trackball. From there select BOOTLOADER, then RECOVERY.

    Also, you should tell us what problems you have as someone might have a solution. There's not too many problems with the N1 that someone here hasn't encountered yet

    Rioja What will your direction accomplish? What after you select RECOVERY? I ask because I have seen postings here about apps leaving behind files after you install them, also that Google Earth leaves files on the actual phone itself.

    I did that and didn't clear out the cache in my stock browser even though it said the Cache Partition was cleared in the Reboot.

    Wiping the cache partiton will not only delete data left behind from uninstalled apps but also, some OTA data/apps are stored there for installation. This stuff isn't always cleaned-up properly so it just sits there forever.

    That said, unless you're running out of space, I don't believe a wipe is necessary. That's why I asked chris6278 to post his problems. I highly doubt wiping the cache is going to help.

    The cache partition is different than browser/app history. You have to clear those like you said earlier Setting > Applications > Manage Applications ... etc

    Cause sometimes the simplest answer is the most complex.

    Thanks. I have 104MB available space on my phone. I will hold off, but remember the instruction.
