  • Corona Untethered iOS 5.0.1 Jailbreak: Updated to Version 1.0-3

    The Corona untether for iOS 5.0.1 gets its first and second updates tonight.

    Corona was the name given to the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak package that was released into Cydia this morning as we covered during its initial release. The untethered jailbreak was possible either through the use of Corona or by the new redsn0w 0.9.10b1. That's just to clarify if you didn't know what Corona was.

    Apparently, as found by planetbeing, Corona broke 'launchctl' which is a dependency for a handful of applications and tweaks that you download in Cydia. This basically means that installing Corona would make launchctl stop working even though it worked perfectly fine prior to installing Corona. Launchctl is a program that manages daemons, scripts, applications, and things of that sort (yeah it's kind of important). To fix this issue, Saurik issued an update (Corona version 1.0-2) that would keep Corona from breaking launchctl so that the dependent applications and tweaks will function correctly on your device.



    Additionally just a few minutes ago, Saurik pushed a second update (Corona version 1.0-3) which fixes another problem - using redsn0w 0.9.10b1 to install the untethered jailbreak (when you were already tethered) actually caused the same problem as above with launchctl breaking after the untether install. This means that redsn0w users were facing the same problem as the lazier people who simply installed the Corona untether from Cydia and left it at that. Just go into Cydia and download that update and you should be good to go.

    The new version should patch the problem and make it so that launchctl dependent applications and tweaks work properly even after you install the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1. A couple of applications that require it include OpenSSH and IntelliScreenX. Corona is still in its early stages and we expect that there will still be more problems in the future - but with a dedicated jailbreak team monitoring problems, we should see those wounds mended quickly and efficiently. Keep your eyes on that changes tab for the next couple of days or weeks.

      So how do we fix the OpenSSh issue.

      Be patient everyone. Most of the errors are because the massive amount of traffic the repos are getting. Once traffic slows down then it will all work like normal.

      Does this launchctl issue affect us if we used PwnageTool to jailbreak? I haven't noticed anything yet, but I haven't been using a lot today.

      When I try to install Corona 1.0.3, I get this response: NOTE: The requested modifications cannot be applied due to required dependencies or conflicts that cannot be automatically found or fixed.

      Any suggestions?

      X2. It's pretty bad this time around. I can't imagine how many people went after this jb. When we can't access BigBoss--it's pretty bad!!!

      It only shows 192 tweaks in Sections, when there should b over 500!!! If you look under Sources and select BigBoss--Nothing shows.

      Even tonight it's still not functioning. Cydia also will not even run a complete download/release cycle on my phone. It eventually times out and gives me multiple errors.

      It must be traffic as I couldn't get IntelliscreenX and then after trying a while later, it loaded.

      Everyone should just keep there's eyes and ears peeled for updates.

      Come to think Of it, I never upgraded from 5.0. If I upgrade to 5.0.1, will both the upgrade and the untether work?

      Used Corona on tethered i4 no issues. Couldn't find Corona through search in Cydia, went to bigboss repo and got it that way.
      Doing a 3GS tomorrow.

      Search for corona in cydia and install it. Then reboot a few times.

      I'm kind of confused here. So if I just did the 5.0.1 untethered Redsn0w 0.9.10b1 jailbreak I need to install Corona? & if so why?

      Thanks in advance
