Cured live rock cycle

If the live rock is cured, will there still be a cycle? Is there any need to add ammonia or the shrimp? As always, thanks in advance dudes!

My cycle just finished today. I had about 15lbs of cured live rock and I used a raw shrimp to cycle it! You still have to use shrimp and there is still a cycle

I'd just add an ammonia source and check your readings in 24 hours. If the ammonia has changed into nitrate in a day, you're good to go.
