    I tried Openbackup(did not work)
    I tried Aptbackup(did not work
    Any other free suggestions?
    Should i delete the back up files on the phone using iFile? To start fresh on backups. Nothing works!! Ask if you need anymore info on what I'm trying to ask.

    IMHO none of the free apps are going to work.

    Most of us bought PkgBackup. I have used it without issues for ages.

    Remember, you get what you pay for ...

    What ^ he ^ said.

    I use Pkg Backup all the time. The dev just keeps making it better and better.

    I use xBackup. Did a full restore when I went from 6.1 to 6.1.2, worked great for me worth the purchase.

    I'm thinking of buying PkgBackup, but what exactly does it back up that iCloud itself, doesn't?

    Ah, that would be nice. I hate renter ing everything. Is it still $6 or around there? It's worth having, but a bit high in price tbqh.

    I believe it's $9.99.

    And for anyone considering OpenBackup, I tried restoring from a backup today after upgrading to 6.1.2 and re-jailbreaking. While it said the restore was successful, it didn't restore a damn thing! Luckily, it didn't take me too long to set things up the way they were.

    I used PkgBackup (first time for me) when I updated to 6.1.2, and while it was much slower to restore than I expected, after leaving the phone alone for a while, I came back, restarted, and my phone was set up exactly like it was right before the upgrade. It was really nice to not have to worry about setting all the tweaks up again, organizing folders, etc.

    It was for me. It is similar to an Android program I have. The one thing I like about the Android program is I can schedule backups to Dropbox and it runs them automatically. It can also just do incremental backups and you can make it so that it will only do the remote if you are connected to wifi to save use of data on plans that are not unlimited. Would love to see that on this package (and price is similar).

    Automatic backups would be nice actually. I tend to forget till it's to late lol, I'm buying it... but my gf will be ticked off lol, I'm supposed to cut back on purchases since my $300 bucks wasted on Amazon. :x

    Depends on what ya' got on whether it was "wasted". :D

    I just got a titanium H3 watch from there for about $100 more. For me it wasn't wasted as it is better than the Luminox it replaced.

    I really liked TitaniumBackup, and PkgBackup could take some lessons from it.:cool:

    Well, I suppose the final question is, is the license per a device or account? I have an iPad and a iPod.

    Apparently per account. Installing it on my Mini right now and it is already on my phone.

    Thanks, that settles it. >_>b Hopefully an auto update option will be in later releases.
