    Just updated PkgBackup and now several of my apps are missing. Not only are the icons missing, the actual files on the phone are now missing. I just lost my iPod, Mail, Several other Apple default apps as well as Cydia and Winterboard. I'm praying this is a mistake and that I didn't actually lose all that information. Anyone else updated and having this issue?

    On another note, does anyone know of a better app than PkgBackup for restoring your Cydia apps?

    Weird. Mine worked fine for 2 or 3 days after I downloaded the update. Now it won't go past the splash screen. No idea what the problem is.

    In what possible way could PkgBackup delete applications from your phone?

    No idea which is why I was wondering if anyone else was having this issue. Updated PkgBackup, did a respring and the next thing I know, whole bunch of files are missing.

    Sorry, I just don't buy it. Installing PkgBackup using apt simply cannot delete non-PkgBackup files. I suppose if there were an application with which PkgBackup conflicted apt would uninstall it; but any such application removal would have been clearly listed on the confirmation page. If not, then I would guess that your issues are completely unrelated to PkgBackup and their coincidence with your upgrade of PkgBackup was just that: a coincidence.

    I've seen something similar after the two most recent PKGbackup updates, I suddenly couldn't find three of my most used apps. Went in to SBSettings and dound they were hidden. Weirdorama.
