    So, my friend introduced me to Rock (a Cydia alternative). I'm really happy with the move, but I can't figure out why my Rock won't download from the xsellize source but Cydia will.

    The source is the same in both apps (http://cydia.xsellize.com/). The error that I get when I try to download anything in the whole repo is "Download failed." That's all, no more explanation. I can download things fine from there in Cydia.

    So far I've ruled out a bad internet connection, a typo in the source, and bad settings in Rock, unless there's some setting I don't know about. Yes, I DID check to make sure the source was enabled as well.

    Is this a common problem?
    I'm on an iPod Touch 8GB 2nd Generation with the latest blackra1n jailbreak that downloaded and applied yesterday. I'm also running the 3.1.2 software.

    Thanks for any help you can give!:)

    You can install Rock after running Blackra1n. It gives you that choice along with Cydia.

    Rock is in the ModMyI repo. Why would you want to install it from a source run by a community of crackers rather than from the official repository the developer released it on? Rock is free, afterall.

    Nothing wrong with that community of crackers.
    After all we're all involved in some type of cracking when we JB our phones :)

    He's saying he ALREADY has Rock. He wants to download from the xsellize repo FROM rock.

    Rereading, I think you're right. In that case...

    OP: Don't download cracked apps. Support the developers by paying for them.

    As another poster guessed, I ALREADY have Rock. I'm trying to add the xsellize repo INSIDE Rock.

    Funnily enough, I actually want the xsellize repo for themes, not for cracked apps. If I wanted cracked apps, I would have gone somewhere else:p

    Does anyone have ANY idea why this is?:mad:

    Xsellize is not a theming repo. Most themes in xsellize are also stolen. Get your themes from somewhere legitimate.

    Yep, especially if they are 12 years old. We should support the RIAA/MPAA/BSA and bankrupt families if they download a cracked app.

    We all know that for every app pirated means one lost sale.

    With respect, I think that's far too simplistic, and certainly for me, not the case at all.

    I think a big part of the relatively low price of applications is that it means people are more likely to do the right thing and pay for them.

    Personally, I have downloaded cracked apps, and I realise it could be an unpopular view, but I think of that as a full version demo.

    I've bought probably close to 100 apps on the back of them being cracked in the first place, and I absolutely know that if they hadn't been cracked, I never would have.

    I hope you get what I'm trying to say, and don't think I'm trying to antagonise - I realise there are people who will use it to obtain the software and they never intend on paying for it, but would they have ever bought the application anyway?

    I'd say most of the "never paying" crackers would never have paid anyway - they'd have gone without, so you're not losing any revenue, those that "maybe would pay" might be encouraged not to, but I think there'd be a lot more who "won't take a chance without trying it" will now be able to try, and will feel morally compelled to then pay.

    Wrong ! Everything on my phone or used to modify my phone is either a free app/tool or paid for !

    You are trying to equate hacking with cracking. They are not the same, sorry !

    Cydia apps should be free anyway. Why am I going to pay to get the functionality that the phone should already have anyway? If I like the app enough, I will make a donation to the creator.

    Why the sense of entitlement.

    The developer has every right to get paid (up front) for their work product.

    They are providing something you are not capable of creating (how do I know, I've seen your posts)

    And I am happy to pay for the apps I "can't live without" because I can't create them either.

    I fail to see how Apple's failure to include a feature gives you the right to steal it from someone else. I happen to think my car should have come with an iPhone kit. That doesn't give me the right to go steal one from Bestbuy.

    Actually, Xsellize has a multitude of fonts. So technically; it could count as a theming repo.
