Finally. You knew it was coming with how far they were behind Cydia and really made no improvements other than buggy overpriced programs.

Read the page source and you'll see this:
Hey there, fellow page source viewer! Unfortunately, there's nothing interesting here, other than that we are very, very sad about the fact the things turned that way. Here's a bit of advise: don't blindly trust your business partners - one day it may turn out that they will steal a year's worth income of the company and create another one, leaving you without possibility to control what you have been creating for several years.

Kate crashed my phone. But thanks to the knowledgable people here I was back up and running in a short time.

I personally prefer Rock over Cydia, I love the backup feature.

Never tried icy but its good to know their were other options . Nothing last forever.
10-27-2009, 04:03 PM #28
Oh, am I the only one that actually uses Kate??
It's running brilliantly on my 3G(S)3.1.2.
Sad to see them go.

I disagree. RockApp is a lot better than Cydia, IMO. The only thing I use Cydia for is for the Cydia store apps.Does this rag smell like chloroform to you?
If I helped you, be sure to press the Thanks! button over there ->
If I didn't, press it anyway.

...Thanks for supporting jailbreak.Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

I cant see how its better to be honest.The back up feature is nice, but do you really want to do that ? i mean sometimes certain packages cause problems on unsupported firmware versions.Also, the instillation is sloppy.
Cydia is slower, yes. ill give you that, but Saurik is honestly one of the greatest coders ever, he constantly makes cydia better and better. Plus with time Cydia will become faster. Besides on the 3GS Cydia already runs at a rediculious speed. and ive had little problems on the 3G.
Plus you can custimize Cydia and Saurik is working on his OTA update or w.e that will honestly change the way we jailbreak.

Yeah agreed. I don't see how anyone with ANY experience can HONESTLY say rock is better then cydia......
10-27-2009, 05:01 PM #34king Cydia?
I would hardly call Cydia king, its slow and buggy. Ive been using Rock and I like it much better than Cydia.
Rock does not keep dead repos
rock gives more info about an app including screen shots.
rock is faster, much faster
the only thing I will give Cydia over rock is; you dont have to know the whole name of an app, just start typing and a list comes up.

One thing to say is ripdev you guys are garbage and have had no need in the jailbreak community you guys didnt help me whatsoever with all the buggy and almost god awful packages i dont know how many time i had to reset my itouch from all the freezing and crashing then freezing cydia is great and saurik kicks ***
10-27-2009, 06:06 PM #38
ok well, looks like another jealbreak team is breaking up. so sad.

As a beta tester of RipDev’s production I can tell that i2Reader Pro which you can download from Cydia or App Store will be supported, but nothing more.
But if you like Icy,I have good news for you.
Icy source is available at GitHub: ripdev's Icy at master - GitHub. Do whatever you’d like with it!

I'm not going to say Rock kicks Cydia's ***, I still like Cydia and I'm sure it'll be around for a long time to come. But Rock is definitely faster (I hate the constant reloading data in Cydia, which wasn't always there and I don't know why it's necessary now), it has a much cleaner, slicker and attractive GUI, and the backup option (so next time you jailbreak you don't have to go download every little single thing individually) is great and much better than using aptbackup.
The only downside to Rock right now is that you can't download Cydia store apps or other apps which are repo'd only on Cydia, which to be fair is not a lot (and you can just jump over to Cydia to get those). Rock has almost every app, theme, etc., that Cydia does.
As for RipDev, oh well. Installer was great until Null River gave it up. I hate to beat up on RipDev but Installer after that was worthless, and Icy was never my cup of tea. I don't know if I ever messed with any of their apps so I can't speak to that. But best wishes to them in whatever they pursue now.
