    it seems like every iPhone forum i visit people are constantly saying how they dislike Rock and to not use it...

    when it first came out it was fast, still is, and i have had no issues with it at all

    can someone tell me the technical reason why it shouldn't be used?

    I'd like to know this answer as well. When I was jailbroken, I'd use Rock whenever I could simply because it opened and updated way faster than Cydia.

    I don't understand the hate either. I always go to Rock first.

    I actually use to see more Cydia dislike as Rock looks a
    lot sexier.

    this is what i got out of someone on another forum...

    Long story short: Rock is a little bit more "appealing" but unreliable and ends up forcing some people to restore their phone afterwords. Cydia is somewhat slower, but does the job the right way and how it's supposed to be done. Rock depends on Cydia, so without Cydia, Rock would not exist.

    You won't find any actual technical explanation comparing the two, because it's all a matter of preference and opinion. Just keep in mind, the cons for Rock far outweigh the cons for Cydia.
