    in my opinion rock was faster and more user friendly however newer cydia versions are fast, the only annoying thing is the random refresh cydia does that rock doesn't. rock is a more lightweight version really, although cydia is the big and better bro.

    Cydia is supposedly more stable. Personally, I find both stable. But Rock is faster and light weight, but may crash more often depending on your iPod. I'd recommend using both, I do.

    I prefer Cydia, it seems more 'welcoming'. I used to use Rock because my Cydia sources dissapeared... Then restored after a couple weeks and went back to Cydia without a second thought...

    Not everything is avalible in rock, although it's better to use.

    Yes, it is. You have to have a good eye to know that they support the same apps (and have the same amount).

    Rock faster, Cydia stable.
