    Make sure that iCloud is set to 'On' in Settings.

    Any tweaks you installed that could mess this up?

    There's other people that have had this issue too.

    Did you set up an iCloud as well?

    Maybe I should rephrase it lol. Is iCloud setup in the first place? It needs to be setup for each device you have.

    And is iCloud filled up by the way (default amount of storage you have is 5 GB) if it's filled completely, that's why you're getting the error.

    And by filled up I mean by is the space all taken up on iCloud.

    That's just weird -_-

    OK read this, I think it will help you significantly. Hopefully what Apple says will work.

    Icloud won't backup-icloud-backup.png Nop, already read it. When i try to backup manually, it starts the backup and then says: "less than one minute remaining" and after that it shows that the backup could not be completed. When i plugged it to the pc i accidently noticed that on itunes it mentions that: "this device was backed up to icloud TODAY"
    So what do u think?

    Maybe it's something with the device not updating it promptly? I'm kinda confused why it's doing this.

    It could also be that iTunes is thinking it backed it up since it did attempt to back it up. I would honestly try a restore, if you weren't having these problems before, it seems just kinda odd.

    that is probably ya problem now you have cracked repos on ya phone they always cause issues. i would suggest deleting them and support ya devs. anyways mmi does not allow cracked apps are warez repos on this site please read the forum rules.

    Unfortunately a lot of people think that jailbreaking their phone is to get apps free. That is not the case. We support customizing our devices, tweaking and controlling our iPhone experience.
    The use of 'cracked apps' or 'warez', referring to commercial applications available on the iTunes App Store or Cydia Store that have been modified and distributed by third parties for free, is frowned upon by the community and against the forum rules; developers value your support!
    Remove all warez repos in Cydia and start fresh.

    Well, there are more repos that can be added, on the front page of Cydia, there is a link to additional ones also. "More Package Sources".
    I would stay clear of pirated apps, it causes so many issues and you will get no support here for them either.
