Pod2g Updates Blog: iBooks Fix Coming to Corona Untether
Pod2g tells us that an iBooks fix is on its way!
If you jailbroke your iDevice recently with the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak, then you'll be very happy to hear that an iBooks patch is being worked on and will be released very shortly. The news is brought to us by the father of the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak, pod2g
via his blog
. It won't only fix iBooks, but it will fix many other applications that are having sandbox issues. The upcoming Corona package can be installed over your redsn0w 0.9.10b3 jailbreak, or you can simply update the package if you used Corona all along.
We expect that following the Corona update, redsn0w will receive an update that can be performed directly over your current untethered jailbreak if you deselect the, "Install Cydia" option. You should go ahead and perform the update even if you're not an iBooks user because it will ensure that you will not have any sandbox problems in the future with whatever you might do on your iDevice.
The man working on the fix for iBooks goes by the Twitter name of xvolks
. It is a kernel level patch, so it's done the right way. You can see his Tweet below:
Obviously, we feel that when we purchase our books from the iTunes store, we feel that we should be able to read them even after we jailbreak our iDevices; right? This fix should make it so that if you are jailbroken you will be able to open iBooks without any problems and read your eBooks. When the patch comes out, are you going to download iBooks again? I know I will. Share in the comments.
