    Hi all,

    I'm planning to jailbreak my iPhone 3G S with blackra1n I am planning to only install Cydia and Rock (and not install Icy). I plan to only use Rock since I've heard lots of positive things about it.

    Will I:

    a) Be able to uninstall Cydia apps through Rock (which would mean they recognize each other's programs)
    b) Be able to use CyDelete to uninstall apps installed with Rock.

    Also, do you think I should also install Icy or will it just cause problems and is it completely unnecessary?

    EDIT: One more question: how can I get (free) custom ringtones?

    Thanks in advance!

    Yes you can uninstall programs installed with Cydia in Rock and uninstall programs with Cydelete that you installed with Rock. As far as installing Icy I would not recommend it. It has been my own experience that it is rather buggy, although faster then Cydia. I myself use Rock most the time and love it. As far as getting free custom ringtones, I'd recommend Unlimitones ( browse thousands of pre made custom ringtones or Anyring (allows you to set any song you have on your phone as a ringtone, as well as, select up to 30 seconds of said song as the ringtone).

    Cydia. I've heard Rock can destroy your iPod. And Icy has been discontinued. If you install Icy you will probably have to restore because it has been discontinued.

    Uh, no you won't.

    Cydia is much better if you like having a stable application on your iPod/iPhone. Rock has screwed up my iPhone too damn much for me to use it anymore.

    Rock is better that Cydia only in theory... since Rock is very unstable, it has a higher chance of screwing your iDevice
    it is also less compatible with APT (the current repo system) than Cydia so not all packages will work

    All packages work fine with me and I never had problems with Rock. Cydia in the other hand...
