    I have an Iphone 4s running 6.1.2 and its jailbroken. It has been running fine
    since since 6.1.2 came out and jailbroken with Evasi0n.

    I noticed that 6.1.3 is out and I thought I would upgrade. So I thought I would
    run PKGBackup to take a backup before I did the upgrade.

    I'm running PKGBackup v5.3.4 and when I click on Backup I'm back to the my
    Desktop. No errors nothing. I did a re-install just in case but still the same.
    I had this problem when I was running ios 5.0.6 but a re-install seemed to fix
    it but it doesn't this time.
    Anyone have/seen this? Know of a cure/solution?

    I have tried to use different backup locations like Addressbook, which worked
    fine before and SkyDrive which I used for my last backup when I upgraded
    from 6.1.1 to 6.1.2.

    If you paid for it, install Crash Reporter and send the crash report to the developer of PkgBackup.

    Runs fine for me on 6.1.2, both on iPhone 5 and 4S (paid for mine)

    Isn't the only use of pkgbackup to back up Cydia apps and tweaks? You do know that 6.1.3 cannot be jailbroken on an iPhone 4S, right?

    I can't resolve your issue but I will say Pkgbackup just saved your JB'ing life.

    PKGBackup update info

    Well I just removed PKGBackup, did a respring, waited awhile and then did
    a reinstall, and YES I have the paid version v5.3.4. I then started PKGBackup
    and went in a setup to backup to SkyDrive.
    When I started the backup, it came and asked for a description and after that
    the backup started and completed. The only thing sent to SkyDrive was the
    PDF file. Is that correct in v5.3.4?
    The previous backups has a whole lot of files backed up.

    Well I have done some more reading on PKGBackup and noticed that under the options part, I am not
    able to select the 1st 2 options only the 3 under other options. I guess that that is correct because I
    guess there is no reason to backup Apple Stock Apps and Appstore Apps. That gets done with my backup
    in Itunes. So I guess everything is running normal again. Not really keen at the moment to test that the
    restore works but I guess to really trust a backup is to test the restore live and not just assume that it
    willl work.

    Anyway, thanks to the above for some insight/tips. (Especially not being able to JB 6.1.3)

    Correct, the first 2 categories cannot be selected.
    I use the DropBox save option, the data is saved as .tbz files.

    That is strange then. I only get the PDF file nothing else. As I mentioned earlier
    I got a bunch of files before together with the PDF file.
    Hummmmm Guess I have to read up on Crash Reporter and see if I can get
    any info that way.
    I ra a backup using the Adreebook and it just came back and said backup ok.

    My PKGbackup crashes when I first launch it as well. Reinstalled/ REbooted, same problem. I can see a message flash very quick that a backup. Here is a perfectly timed screen shot. (only lasts like 1 second)

    I went into the regular iPhone settings, found PKGbackup and turned off Auto Backup. That let me back in.

    I still sent the crash report to the Dev
