My iPhone 5 has stopped backing up to iCloud after the jailbreak. Has anyone else had this problem? Any ideas how to fix it?

I've tried turning iCloud on and off. I deleted some older backups though I do have enough space so that probably wasn't necessary.

Also iMessages doesn't work as it's supposed to. I now don't get messages on all my devices like I used to.

All these problems started after jailbreaking.
The iCloud back though is the more important one. If you guys have any suggestions I would appreciate it.

He doesn't need to install that to fix the iCloud problem. That tweak is known to break iCloud backup (at least in the past; not sure if it was fixed yet)

Yup, after uninstalling PKGBackup I was finally able to successfully backup to iCloud.

Thanks again to everyone who left a suggestion;)
