    Then I think you dont need a jailbreak, go ahead and restore to iOS 4.1 and stay stock...

    What k.nit was referring to was the uiimages for the iPhone 4 currently the only way to theme anything that is in uiimages have to use low res images. This I also true for theming the wallpaper. It seems that when you include a wallpaper.png in the theme with retina resolution the png gets doubled in size when applied through winterboard. This is also true for all uiimages as well as using the "icons" folder to theme icons

    I honestly won't miss rock.app. It's been responsible from more bricks than anything else I've used.

    It would be very nice to have categories like Themes compatible for iOS 4, Themes for Retina displays etc. At the moment it's like try & error.

    Will Winterboard also be updated?

    2) I really want to add this, but I got a nearly unanimous response from users outside of the US that this was "evil" as it would cost them money while they were sleeping, and the power users complained that it cost memory and battery power. I am intending to approach the subject again and look into making it a configuration option.

    3) This is not possible. I realize Rock does it, and it even seems to work, but it really does not. There are some horrible corner cases that come up when you have an incoming phone call that cause the entire phone to kernel panic if you try to do this. Cydia actually /used/ to do this, for like a year or so when it first came out, and I had to change it due to the issues it caused.
    How about how rock keeps track of my already purchased license so I don't have to deal with contacting the maker to get it moved to another phone. This is a must have.

    you forgot Thanked 752 Times in 449 Posts, no faking that
    you forgot Thanked 62 Times in 51 Posts , seems like nobody really give a **** what you have to say

    I am flattered that you took the time to pick me out of the crowd and spew out a comment. I am also amazed at how you know what I supposedly must know.
    Unfortunately, you bore me son, at least come with something fun or witty but to waste your time on someone who can give 2 squirts about you and to try and impress with your logic, um 1431 posts = must know what a blob is, and then to call someone out as a "faker account", uh well ok then im just faking. but at least i am not an insignificant account.

    This is already possible. The only thing it doesn't do is give you a nice list when you log in. If I already purchase an app and I go to buy it again and log in it will show already purchased and been links your phone to the account.

    There are some apps like lockinfo irealsms bitesms and so on that use there own methods which is why you would have to contact the dev. So really that has nothing to do with cydia it has to do with the way the dev chooses to implement the purchase of there product

    Well... I was more of a Rock user myself, but having a rudimentary understanding of APT, I see some of the design decision mess-ups that were done in Rock. I just wish searches were faster in Cydia, searching after you've filled everything in rather than as you type, though I'm not sure if search as you type is mandatory in apt.
