    Everybody treats having to install Rock like a horrible punishment!
    I don't see what's wrong with it...

    rock app IMO is hands down the worst thing you could put on your fone

    you kno somethings up when an app doesnt allow you to complete delete it off your device

    There's gotta be a reason or many reasons behind it obviously.
    If it worked great and didnt cause alot of problems or restores then everyone would be happy with it and wouldnt badmouth it.
    We all have nothing to gain by promoting Cydia instead of Rock.
    We're just trying to help and warn others thats all. If you want to use it its up to you. Just hope you dont have any issues with it.

    Let's get the party started with complaints shall we?

    How about unstable buggy program that crashes iphones forcing restores?

    Or...

    Programs that never seem to uninstall fully causing issues with Cydia running properly forcing restores?

    Or...

    Could it be the lack of support from the company itself?

    They certainly felt the need to hook into Cydia's database of program offerings to make themselves feel relevant. What they spent a least a whole year with what, a dozen lousy applications and all for sale?

    Or could it be the problems with Rock filling up all iphones storage with other "junk" and running out of space and having to restore the iphone to get your empty space again.

    i said this b4 and i'll say it again

    any developer who forces you to download rock in order to use their program is asking for their app to get cracked

    i have no sympathy whatsoever for them

    this is one of the few exceptions where piracy is ok in my book

    We do have a lot to LOOSE if we promote Rock and NOT cydia. Saurik is one of the main reasons the jailbreak exists on the iPhone4 right now. I want him to succeed.

    Yes, that along with him saving all of our SHSH's on his server is great in order to be able to restore or downgrade.
    But still if cydia sucked as much as Rock we would still have many many angry users.

    I'll take Cydias slowness and stability over Rock's flashy setup and snappiness ANY day.

    its theoretically workable, but you can never install rock updates via cydia. the purchases dont transfer between programs so its best to stick with one, cydia.

    There's nothing wrong with Rock. When it first came out it had problems but a small group of haters have not forgotten. For them, Rock is the only application that had to be perfect from Release 1.0.

    I'm not implying anything, you are inferring that.

    You're wrong about Rock, too. Two for two. Congrats.

    Rock works perfectly for me on
    my iPhone 4.

    Plays well with Cydia. No problems.

    The only beef I have is with Rock
    support. They will act like your best
    friends when you ask them questions
    about their product prior to purchase.
    Once you purchase and ask them a
    question they have no answer for
    they refuse to send further emails.
    This seems to be a common complaint
    amongst Rock owners here.

    So, great product but horrid customer
    support.

    Same here. I wouldn't install Rock Extensions again (learned that lesson a couple of years ago) but so far so good on my iP4.

    Love Rock.
    I wonder if some of the hate is because it is kinda geared more toward the casual user rather than the hard core hacker?
    Makes it too easy for the newbies?

    I assume you're talking about a cracked version but I paid for my update to version 4 and the only way to get it right now is to install Rock as well. I wish the developer would allow us to download it without Rock because I really have no desire to have Rock on my phone. I only have it on there because I use mywi and I remember that I didn't have to have it installed on my 3GS. Guess the developer just hasn't gotten around to offering the updated version like that yet.

    RockExtensions and Mobile Substrates (Rock and Cydia dynamics libraries) don't play nice to each other. it is not that there anything against Rock, but most jailbrake application run on mobile substrate so when one required rock they start having issues.

    not really true. I bought mywi thru cydia back when that other website was handling payments. then that other website went out of business and I had to get my license transferred to rock. the rock guy went thru every sale to find mine. so he was very helpful. I don't mind rock as a program really I like how its fast and much smoother then cydia but I agree with alot of the devteams protests that the developers of rock push their own apps even on the pages for other apps that do the same thing and that aint cool.
