At the risk of sounding like a dumba**, what is Rock? Is it another installer app? Where do you find it to install it? Through cydia?
I haven't JB my 3GS yet, so I am trying to understand what the various options are for installing 3rd party apps....thanks

i second the Rock app. it's got a great interface, is fast and has replaced Cydia on my phone. Cydia still won't load properly and i don't want to have to do a restore>re-JB just to get it working again. Rock, FTW!

One thing to remember with Cydia is it runs much better on wi-fi. Sometimes I think at&t blocks Cydia's servers or something.
If you go with Rock alone, just remember you'll have to save your own ECID shsh files for each firmware. Although even if you do have them saved through Cydia it's not a bad idea to have your own backup.

Weel I spent three hours last night restoring my phone and re-jailbreaking my iPhone. I did this for one reason I only wanted Rock installed and not Cydia. I like Rock better and didnt see the need to have both installed. All went well, EXCEPT. If you paid for Apps in Cydia they wont install in Rock, Rock does not have license agreements with some developers. I can not instal 3GUnrestricter or PkgBackup because of this, SUCKS!! So for now my only option is to re-install Cydia and then I can download those two apps again. What a waste of time last night. This is just a heads up for anyone thinking about uninistalling Cydia.

Ohh and dont use Rock restore from backup to download all your apps and themes either. It will install Cydia again due to it being in ur most recent back up in Rock. I learned this the hard way I had to restore and re-jailbreak a second time to get rid of Cydia. Then I downloaded Rock again and then installed everything manually one at a time till done. After all that I then did a back up from there that way Cydia was not in the back up. IT WAS A LONG NIGHT!

Hmm, I've never heard of rock, I'll have to try that.
I didn't like cydia that much. it loads slow as hell for me. i did like icy though. it seems a LOT more organized than cydia ever has been.
