    Cydia - The Popular Favorite, slow at times
    Rock - The Newcomer, some glitches, can't be used to buy Cydia store apps
    Icy - Crap that RipDev put together, and recently figured that out, so they discontiuned it

    Cydia - Oldest and most reliable
    Rock - New, messes up sometimes like all installers do.
    Icy - Open source so anyone can modify it at any time. RipDEV recently closed it's doors.

    crashes, it sometimes deletes the bottom bar when you go to portrait from landscape, if you turn landscape off most of it works

    Rock- new, fast, few glitches...overall great in my opinion
    Cydia- old, slow, not that great in my opinion...but a little bit more apps
    Icy- fast but in my opinion crap...that is y they discontinued it.

    I recommend Rock!!!
