    Puchased MyWi for use with my iPad but I have apprehensions about leaving Rock on the phone. I was thinking about using iPhone browser to manually remove Rock. Any recommendations or thoughts?

    Remove it with Cydia, along with RockExtensions (if Cydia correctly works on iPad)

    No, this is for use on my iphone. The problem is if you try to remove Rock through Cydia it wants to remove MyWi as well.

    ^ yes this is true but I did the same and then downloaded again (no rock) and it was fine. No need to purchase again.

    As of yesterday MyWi (no rock) was failing on download. How long ago did you download MyWi (no rock)?

    It won't fail if you have previously downloaded and registered the ROCK version.

    Buy the MyWi Rock version through the Rock Your Phone app. Make sure it registers and works. Then delete Rock through Cydia. This will also delete MyWi. (It did for me). Use Cydia to download MyWi No Rock version. It will work, as it recognizes that your device has been previously registered.

    Don't know if it makes a difference, but I did this with the trial version and it reistalled Rock onto my iPhone (3Gs Spirit JB'd on 3.1.3). Guess I'll wait till my trial is over when I fully purchase it at maybe it will let me try this. Also, when I purchase the no rock version from Cydia, I hit the restart springboard button and it just stays there I've had to do a hard reset twice now.

    For those of you struggling with this:

    You have to spend $9.99 and buy a license before you can get rid of Rock App and Rock Extensions.

    Which means: it doesn't work with trial mode (however you can get Rock version trial mode, test it out before you buy the license)

    I bought a copy with rock, got the licences. Then I uninstalled rock, rock extensions, and mywi. Then I reinstalled mywi (no rock) and it found my licences and has been working flawlessly.

    sign in with Rock keeps quiting

    So I did spiritjb and have downloaded from cydia the mywi, if I download no rock, or rock, or cracked each time the rock app shows up anyway. So I registered with rock but have not paid the $9.99 yet, I want to try it to be sure it works before paying (I have no problem paying that small amount) but now every time I try to sign in (either from mywi or rock) the sign in window just quits. Sometimes I finish inputing my info and actually hit sign in and sometimes it wont let me finish typing and it just goes away. So I have still never seen wifi... the screen is covered by sign in and I can't get past the stage to just see if it will work. If it does work I'll be done and very happy!
    Any advise? Should I just buy it from rockyourphone.com from the computer and then when I go to my iphone will it just open and not require me to sign in? help... last step in this quest for myfi.

    I would attribute your issue to the use of "Cracked" apps as you mention in your post which is not allowed here nor commented on.

    Once you try to install a cracked version of an an app, the left over preferences folders and other resources can screw up the install of the paid for version. It's stolen software Karma.

    didn't know what cracked meant

    I just saw mywi and downloaded it, rock came with it, upon seeing that I deleted them and did the next one... sorry I'm not familiar with this stuff. I don't mind paying for it I just didn't know what rock or cracked meant I was looking for mywi... apparently they are all interconnected with stolen, payfor etc etc. OK now, I don't mind paying I just want it to work. Can I still fix this issue?

    idea

    can I restore the iphone, then do I need to go to spirit again or not, and then go to get mywi... and if so... then do I need to go to cydia or is there a way directly to rock? I might throw in the towel and just get a darn usb wifi!

    will it still work

    I didn't realize this was "stolen" I only knew there was a thing calle mywi and I'd like to use it. Now that my preferences are bad can I still get this working? If not I'm searching other smartphones that do this or usb connection.

    I had the same problem. I d/l the rock version and mywi quit as I was registering. I decided to register on the rock app itself which worked than I was able to jus login into mywi without it self-quitting on me. Good luck.

    iMrNiceGuy0023,
    I may be mistaken but I believe it has to do with excessive battery drain. I have read posts saying the the battery drain is greater, though I do not know if it is supposed to be the Rock app itself or the Rocked MyWi.

    I was fortunate and managed to JB then get the MyWI no-Rock a day or two before Appsidy went away. It has worked flawlessly.

    man, i sure wish rock would just die in a fire already. there's no reason for it to exist, cydia store works fine, has google check out,paypal, etc. what rock app does is piggy back onto your phone through applications like mywi and then ruin your life. that's why everyone hates rock. no one installs it on purpose, it's like those toolbars for IE that get installed with winamp on a PC.

    Totally agree man. I didn't end up buying MyWi because of Rock. I only wanted native tethering anyway though so I ended up editing CommCenter myself with a hex editor.

    Lots of people on here (including myself) have lost a lot of time trying to fix whatever Rock randomly decides to break. It forced me to restore my phone twice which is enough for me to never touch anything Rock related again. I guess it looks prettier than Cydia, but it's a steaming pile of crap under the hood.
