    Default RockApp VS. Cydia
    So I searched all over the forums for a RockApp vs Cydia poll, and I didnt find one, so I opened this one...

    Aparrently RockApp just updated to 2.0 which made it capable of adding repos just like cydia. So which do you think is better?
    Rock App or Cydia?

    I prefer Rock App, why? Because its really fast, it supports backups, did I mention really fast? Has push notifications, which is a very useful feature, so u dont have to open up cydia just to see if u need an update or not....

    Hi

    Hm ok I feel something fishy about this Rock app.

    Yes it is smart and the UI is slick, except for some tiny menues but thats ok as long as you have no probs with your eyes. To simply sum it up, for me it is like:

    pros

    - more convenient than Cydia
    - faster
    - ability to backup installed apps via user account

    cons

    - diggs deeeeeeeeeep into your system
    - bricks your device when uninstalled (recovery necessary)
    - tiny menues

    fishy thoughts

    - Is it spyware? Dunno. At least it looks very commercial. What bothers me is this spyware thing. I can't help myself but I am a little paranoid about that.

    What do you think?

    xtraa: Are you serious?

    1) What does diggs deeep into your system mean? This is a rumor spread by anti-rockers. While I have no idea what "digging" even means - we do no more adjustments then Cydia does. We simply install unix file system support - the same as Cydia in fact. There's really no differences there.
    2) There was a problem 7 months ago when uninstalling rock. There's no problem at all now.
    3) Yes - we need to make some of the buttons bigger
    Send iPhone System Log: Via any Intelliborn App -> Click Help / FAQs/ Support -> Scroll to bottom and click on red text at bottom.
    MyWi 4.0 - WiFi + USB Tethering on 3.x/4.x/5.x + Simple WiFi Router - Connect Laptops, Touches, + more!
    My3G - Facetime over 3G plus HiDef YouTube and more! Trick your iPhone into thinking it's on WiFi
    IntelliScreenX - iOS 5 Notification Center the way Apple wished it was.
    Tlert - View and Reply to SMS message within any app. Get rid of the ugly default alert messages!

    Are there currently any incompatibilities between Rock and Cydia? I have heard a lot of rumors flying around. What exactly are the facts here?

    I have Rock installed but I'm a little nervous to use it beyond updating itself. I heard something about incompatibilities between Rock and mobilesubstrate. Is this true?

    Well so far I have not had any major issues on running both apps (cydia & RYP) but I must admit that RYP is just cool but does not offer all the Shizzel Cydia does do I would have to retake my first comment and give Cydia a 2 thumbs up!!!

    So, if I have a bunch of apps from cydia that require mobilesubstrate, such as winterboard, I cannot install an app like MyWi from Rock that requires rock extensions to work? That sucks.

    You guys are all smoking some old, knarly crack. Rock and Cydia work just fine together. I have both, and have had both, on my 3GS since I got it. No issues. And had both on my 3G before that. No issues.

    (Yes, I had to restore back in the Rock 1.0 days...but those days are LONG GONE).

    No issues either with MyWi, Tlert, Intelliscreen, etc....running right along side of all other Mobilesubstrate apps, like Winterboard, LockInfo, SBSettings, etc.

    All is happy and fun in my 3GS world

    Same here. I'm what yee folks call a noob at all of this. As far as I knew Cydia and Rock were merely "repositories" for apps. I had no idea what all this mobilesubstrate talk is about but I am learning.

    New 3Gs with Cydia and Rock installed along with MyWi. Anything I have installed and or subsequently uninstalled has proceeded flawlessly.

    Same here, I have had Cydia & Rock running together & have MyWifi, SBSettings & Intelliscreen. All is good with me through all the updates on both repo's & firmware updates.

    Another vote for Cydia and RYP working perfectly side by side. I've installed numerous applications on both (Rock - Tlert, Elert, MyWi) & (Cydia - SBSettings, Winterboard, iBlacklist) and have never had a single issue.

    I prefer Rock because of the ability to restart/respring on exit. I hate when Cydia doesn't fully download a program but I still need to respring.
