    I've installed Skype, Backgrounder and sbsettings on my jailbroken iPod.

    I'm so close to making this work it's frustrating me.

    After the Cydia update I was able to run Skype in the background while having a conversation. However when I got a call and answered it all I got was garbled feedback from my mic.

    I never heard the person on the other end.

    I sounded like a Cylon or something computer generated.

    Can I fix this or do I just have to wait for another update?

    If you look on Cydia's homepage, you'll see a small article by Saurik (the creator of Cydia and MobileSubstrate, which is what Backgrounder is built with) written about the problem posed by Skype. It's a bit technical, but the general point is that Saurik can't do anything about it; the developers of MobileSubstrate extensions have to.
