    Just jailbroke my iPhone 4.2.1

    Before doing so I backed it up using PKG BACKUP

    Upon jailbreaking to 4.2.1 I installed Cydia
    then PKG BACKUP

    Problem is, despite there being a PKG BACKUP
    file in my contact (address) list, the program
    itself is not associating itself with it, this reporting
    that no previous backup exists.

    Anyone have any ideas how to do a restoration?

    Okay, here I go answering my own question again.

    Basically, I went into advance settings in PKG
    BACKUP and told it to scan all files upon start.

    At that point it found a previous backup in
    my contact list and did a restore.

    The only negative is that PKG BACKUP did
    not restore everything in its right folder.
    I got apps all over the map. I remember
    in previous restores on previous jailbreaks
    it restored everything perfectly.

    Not the worst catastrophe. I'll just have
    to spend a little time putting everything back.

    PkgBackup did its job. It doesn't put apps into folders, that's what iTunes' restore from backup feature does.
