    Ive heard that Rock is much better than Cydia so I wanted to test it out. So my problem is how exactly do i get Rock?
    Can I have Rock and Cydia at the same time?

    You can have Rock and Cydia together, all you have to do is search for Rock in Cydia. IMO, Rock is a lot better than Cydia but some users said they had problems having both installed (I never had problems though).

    Rock is auctally faster, but cydia has more packages. it depends on which you like better. fast, or more.

    Rock has the same amount of packages as Cydia (I don't get why everyone says they don't, they use the same sources).

    I agree with Jek570 because some of my sources are not found in Rock. But Rock is faster. I use both.

    Rock may be faster but it can damage your device causing you to restore.

    Both Cydia and Rock have the same amount of packages in them not including the store ones. Some apps require mobile substrate to run and some require rock extenstions to run.

    My sources are sure found on Rock and I have a lot, even the Cydia community sources work.

    J-Phone, what kind of damage can Rock cause? I recently installed it after sticking with just Cydia for a long time.
