    Dr Gee, you must have installed the 'essential' Rock update that Cydia put out for it after they bought it. Because my Rock still works fine (except I have to turn down the update every time I open it). I'm keeping Rock until the bitter end.

    ....

    It's a repository just like cydia. Loads faster, better interface, better in general. There are this who hate it, bit I'm one who loves it for it's ease of use and streamlined GUI

    For me it was a love/hate relationship. I loved it for all the same reasons as you, but utterly HATED how it would lock up my iPad if there was any less than 100MB RAM available when the app was started. I also hated the fact that you could only install purchased apps on a single device, whereas Cydia is like Apple, allowing you to install purchased apps on multiple devices.

    Well, I removed it. That didn't cause any issue.
    Everything is in Cydia now.
