    Anyone using backgrounder on their iPad..? I have it and its installed and when i trigger it on apps it will say "backgrounder enabled" and even show the little icon in the corner of the app icon but after a few minutes or doing stuff, leaving it idle, it completely disables everything. Its really annoying. I want my chat agents like chat to stay open so when people IM me its always open my phone. Instead it stays open for a while and backgrounder refuses to keep it running.

    Any ideas? I mean everything works beautifully and i also have multifl0w but its useless without backgrounder working properly.

    Did you try using the "Backgrounder" mode instead of "native" mode?

    Backgrounder on 4.2.1 does works

    I just found the way to enable backgrounder on my ipad 4.2.1 First you need to disable multitasking in iFile : System/library/coreservices/ (property list viewer/capabilities...multitasking off) then respring. After that get backgrounder in cydia (not the one for firmware <3.0 but the other one) Then go back in iFile: var/mobile/library/preferences/jp.ashikase.backgrounder.plist (property list viewer/first run ON. Respring and configure backgrounder with overides and activation and voila! It worked for me hope it does for you.
