    Blowfish64: Yes - it's a simple line of code to do it - just not sure how to let the user do it. Any suggestions (currently, tapping the repo enables/disables it. We could move that to the edit functionality?)
    Mastuul: The issue is as you mentioned - we restore the sources with the restores - so technically - if u hit the restore 2x (restore and then open and close)- the 2nd time - it'll find the apps it couldn't before with the restored sources and ignore the apps it already installed. A workaround yes - we're looking at fixing it in a coming release.
    Knexlegend: Please click the send log to support when this happens and just type in what happened. Thanks!
    ThePlague: I partially agree with BigBoss - from the perspective of - i wouldn't want to mess up my 3GS right now . But that pretty much applies to anything/everything in the jailbroken community. If your 3GS is happy - i would leave it alone completely. (no installs/uninstalls of anything). But that's me . Also, regarding some other comments - A) We don't install/modify system files any more then Cydia does. B) We don't replace mobilesubstrate. If you decide to uninstall Mobilesubstrate, you can manage things through Rock Extensions (they're the same essentially - with Rock Extensions having some extra code). Anyways- minor points - the jist of the article is beware of doing anything new to your 3GS right now - it's sad Apple's change with the 3GS - they could invest their time in so many other ways that would actually help the iPhone advance - instead they hold it back.
    silent1643: Sorry! It didn't allow reviews at all - and I thought we fixed this (it shows one review - but unfortunately - it's stuck on something. Will get to it early this week.

    Thanks all for the great feedback - it seems this was a hit and you can expect more features/functionality/performance tuning, etc from us in the near future ! Feel free to post any requests.

    I loaded the Rock app from Cydia tonight. Did the update, and I don't see anything listed in the "What's New" Section. I did the Manage > Settings > Manage Display, and that didn't do anything. I also loaded the Rock Extensions from Cydia. I still don't see anything. Any help?

    None of those let me browse an individual repository. Manage sources only lets me add or delete them, not browse. I'll stick with Cydia until that gets added. Unless I'm missing something.

    I think a simple way to do it would be to simply add the ubiquitous blue arrow button to the right side of the repository. Tapping it would show you the contents of it. Any down sides to that?

    I've got the same issue. It was working, but I seem to have lost some stuff which was displayed. And many of the things I do have installed including all the rock apps are saying unknown repo. But my whats new is also totally empty.

    Thanks!

    I wonder how many people who have stopped using cydia on the 3GS will be moaning when their restore files have not been backed up because they aren't using cydia.

    I don't like the way RYP pulled their apps from cydia and force you to install other junk I don't want.

    I'll stick with cydia.

    same issue but after i restored the db - a dozen or so apps showed back up in the whats new section - i can still view all packages under the all categories section - not a huge deal considering this app is still in beta which most still dont realize

    CYDIA all the way for me, RYP has very little to offer, and also installs some junk crap on your phone, that makes your phone crash. I installed it once to test, but my phone kept playing about. When i removed that RYP crap, my phone was fine.

    Cydia is the way to go. RYP cant compete with cydia or replace it.

    RYP keeps crashing when checking updates. When I restart my phone it will work fine, but after a couple hours if I start RYP it will crash again. Hard-reset is the only way to fix it temporarily.

    Blowfish:Your request is in the latest RockApp - thanks for the advice and feedback
    Phoneline/CPJR: We had a corrupted APT db for a few hours that day and it was resolved quickly. Thanks for your patience and bug report!
    Simba1: We added additional support in RockApp 2.04 for other direct repos (not a specific repo) but it should support more. If it doesn't, contact the repo owner - they might be looking for a specific UserAgent (and you can request them to include RockAPT I believe)
    Shashed: Sorry to hear it. For every Cydia lover, we get a few dozen emails about how much people love the RockApp and have stopped using Cydia. For each, their own. That's what freedom of choice is about.

    Hey psuskeels,

    Looks great except for a couple of problems.
    1)The blue arrow to allow browsing only appears on the default sources. Sources that are manually added or installed via package do not allow browsing still. Additionally, the ultrasn0w repo appears to be the only default one that does not have the blue arrow.
    2)When tapping on a repo to disable/enable it, white bars appear on either side of the list. I get the impression that they're not supposed to be there.

    Anyway, if you could make browsing apply to all repos, not just the default ones then it'd be great! It's one of the last things Cydia has over this program in my opinion.

    [EDIT} Huh. I just refreshed the database and now the default repos don't show the blue arrow anymore but the installed via package ones and the manual ones do instead! Except when I try to push the button it only toggles enable/disable instead of letting me browse. I also can't browse the defaults anymore either because the button isn't there now. Something is definitely buggy with this version.

    [EDIT AGAIN] Ok, don't know what's going on, but I totally reset the phone and now it seems to work with all repos. Fingers crossed!

    It reads the repositories that are already installed on your iphone and loads up a list of the apps and repos you have, pretty clean.

    All in all it seems to be a great replacement for Cydia in my opinion. The user interface is way beyond Cydia's and it offer more features and ways to organize apps. The only problem I see with it is the secondary "installed" sources. Some of these sources can't be read by RYP, I'm not sure if it still shows their packages in the updates list, and also the app crashes when trying to sort some installed sources' packages by their release date (possibly because these sources don't record their packages' release dates). Also what does the "Manage Package Display" option change?
    Oh yeah, you can also browse in landscape!

    default sources come with the rock app
    to add new sources goto ->manage sources->edit->add
    then enter in whatever you need to add

    You can go to Manage -> Manage Sources and remove any you don't want.
