    I'm sticking with cydia. Doesn't rock not make a symlink to the app folder or something like that. (thought I heard that)

    I'm more of a rock guy even though I've been using cydia since 1.x.x the days it wasn't so popular...

    There already is a symlink to applications.

    /Applications = /private/var/stash/Applications.xxx*/

    *Changed to Applications.pwn on JB'ed devices.

    Also, once again, where is Kryptes in these polls?

    where did you find this so called "Kryptes?"

    I looked inside rock and cydia and couldn't find that app. is there a certain source for that app?

    I'm impressed with Rock thus far, haven't had any problems yet, it looks nice, and its fast.

    Why use Kryptes? That's a stupid application made by the fools at Sleepers. It can't do half of the stuff Rock or Cydia can do.

    I use Rock as my main installer, but use Cydia when Rock fails me for some reason.
