Thread: PkgBackup Crashes on Startup
01-16-2011, 11:30 PM #1PkgBackup Crashes on Startup
I just bought PkgBackup 4.2.7 and installed it on my 3Gs (running 4.1). However, it crashes on startup. Any ideas on why this is happening and how I can stop it?

Try deleting and reinstalling you probably got a bad extension on download

I purchased pkgbackup today and I'm having the same problem. Have deleted app and reinstalled, rebooted device with no luck. I would really like to get this app working as I need to do a restore. Can someone please offer some help or maybe tell me the best way of contacting the developer? When I use the author link within the app page on cydia, email opens but author's address isn't provided. I don't use twitter so is Facebook the only option?

Count me in on this problem. Same symptoms...3GS running 4.0. pkgbackup 4.2.7 instantly crashes back to SB. Tried uninstalling and re-installing but no luck.
Sent email to author but no reply.

Has anyone had a reply from the developer? I had to reinstall iTunes and I'm going to lose much loved data if I can't get a backup before iTunes wipes my drive. Help! I'm getting desperate so will be sooo grateful for any help. Please, please rescue me. Thanks

Pkgbackup author sent me the 4.0.5c .deb file and it ran great.
He said to try the latest rev once I update to 4.2.1 which I haven't done yet.

This is the developer of PKGBackup.
Those who have gotten in touch w/ me have had their issues solved.
I'm not hard to find , from Cydia.app you CAN email me & i DO reply
within 24-48h & work patiently with you to resolve your issues.
My email is: email@example.com.
I'll be glad to hear from you (& even fix your issue in person IF you are in Manhattan, NY).
Now, how is that for service!?

having the same issue using version 4.2.11 with pkgbackup crashing. Just emailed the dev.

Hi @ripped53 how did you get on with the developer? were you able to stop it crashing? I'm also running 4.2.11 with the same issue.

same issue here I guess I will email the guy why doesnt he just update it in cydia though?
04-06-2011, 09:21 PM #14
Same problem, but it used to work for me. Along with the question of why doesn't the developer update the app in cydia, I'd also like to ask: since the developer has helped so many people with the same problem, why doesn't he post possible solutions to this thread?

I purchased PKGBackup today in hopes of upgrading from iOS 4.1 to 5.1.1, the app version I have is 5.2
I am having the same issue, the app is not launching and resetting back to springboard. I tried reinstalling the app and rebooting the device. I emailed you from Cydia but figured I would write here also. Please kindly see if there is anything about my setup that is causing this, I would greatly appreciate your help.
