I've used Package Backup (PKGBackup) on previous model jailbroken phones, and I am pleased to see its author has an updated version for the latest phones and IOS on the Big Boss repository.

Just downloaded and used the latest version 5.4.5, and it corrected a minor problem that popped up with the previous update. Working well again.

I've done a lot of beta testing for Jibril (dev) in the past on iPhone 4, but hadn't gotten around to installing it on my 5s. Got an email from him last night that said it is working so I'm going to install it and see how it goes. i believe you will be seeing another update soon as he also sent me a beta :D

Great App!
So happy to have it working on my 5s.
Backs up everything perfectly.

Also great service. Had problem with update and developer responded in minutes with a new update that fixed the problem.

One thing I noticed during backup is that it is saying that there are 21 10mb chunks of data for Voice Memos, however I have no voice memos at all on my phone?

Anyone else seeing something similar?

Update: Apparently this was my issue. When I went into the file system I found a bunch of old voicemails from 2009. Given this is a brand new 5s, I have no idea why iCloud put them on my phone. This was a setup as new iPhone in November.
