Guys, i just want to ask help about making a backup using PKGbackup, i followed the instructions that i found, from installation to linking to dropbox, and ive tried already "backup", but it only backups those applications that didnt came from cydia, (i think so) such as calendars, contacts, applications, etc. but my cydia installed packages, it didnt made a backup of that, why oh why?? can you help me to understand how does pkgbackup really works?? how to do?? what to do?? if theres a detailed tutorial, i will greatly appreciated.. thanks in advance..

Do yourselves a favor and if you have the previous version, DO NOT upgrade. I did that can no longer backup to contact list and tried to backup to the cloud, ran for 5 hours till I canceled it. Contacted tech support, tried a couple of things they suggested and that didn't work either. My question to him "what in the world did you guys do to this program that was useful and now...is NOT"

Then after seeing the link youve given me, i tried to make a backup again, but this time, i de-selected the calendars, contacts and etc. (because i know itunes can manage that), and pressed "Backup", and i watch while its uploading, and saw Activator, sbsettings, cydia, etc.. my questions is, why i didnt saw that in my previous backup? is it just too fast thats why i didnt able to see that? Can i trust the backup that it is really complete? Is there a way that i can check what has been backed-up?

Hi, click on Restore, select your Dropbox backup and you can then scroll and see what's backed up.

Yes you can select a backup to view without restoring. I have turned on "confirm backup/restore" in the settings app as an extra step so you don't accidentally restore.

Hi, I would think that there should be a Yahoo settings tab in your settings app under notifications that you need to configure.
