Seems like you need to do some more reading. Cured live rock has the beneficial bacteria already established and there is no more die-off from anything attached to it.

One month seems good enough for curing, but someone else might want to chim in with any informational links that may help you...

If the rock is fully cured, theoredically, you just have to move it to your tank(without drying out) and you don't really need to cycle your tank.

Both should be read. Anytime you want to add anything to your tank, you should check your water (at least once per week to tell you if you need to do a water change as well).
