    Default PKGbackup
    I had to restore to custom firmware due to an issue with who know's what. I am trying to restore with pkgbackup and not all of my apps are being restored. I'm assuming this is due to all of the traffic from the new JB'ers. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Thoughts? Any one else use pkgbackup?

    Yeah I use it, I was able to restore most of my apps while the repo wasn't heavily loaded. Best to try again later on.

    I'm having the EXACT problem.
    Is it really just a traffic overload? No corruption right?

    A couple of people on twitter made vague references to pkgbackup not working, but I cant really seem to get any straight or verified answers if traffic is the problem or not.

    I hope its just a temporary overloaed, but I've been trying repeatedly for over an hour and I'd THINK that at least one of those times would make a little more progress.

    I've tried aptBackup and PkgBackup and none of them move an inch in the progress bar, zero. And Rock backup sure bombed, no where to be seen. At least I can see the packages names on PkgBackup, I guess I will have to do it manually in the next days if I get no progress.

    Got an Ipod Touch ehehe, no work around that. Thanks for the post, so you tried over and over again? How much did it took to complete once it started?

    When I try to manually reinstall packages, Cydia tells me it can't because I need a FW < 3.0 - I'm on 3.1.3

    Maybe this has something to do with it.
