  • Corona Untethered Jailbreak Updated: Install to Use iBooks

    You can now install Corona to use iBooks on your iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak.

    If you have been debating updating to iOS 5.0.1 and jailbreaking untethered because of the fact that you're an iBooks-a-holic, then you should download the newest Corona update. It has been updated to patch iBooks from a kernel level so that you can read your iBooks purchases on your iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbroken iDevice. Before today, there were sandbox problems that would have prevented you from doing so.

    If you are jailbroken from the original Corona untether, then you can simply update the package to get your iBooks patch. It will require a reboot after installing. If you are jailbroken untethered already using the latest redsn0w, then you can simply install Corona over the untethered redsn0w jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 and the iBooks patch will take affect immediately. The sandbox fix for iBooks comes from a patch made by comex, but comex was not the developer behind the Corona update.

    Corona was updated to version 1.0-4 which originally fixed iBooks, however there was another launchd problem that was fixed in it and additionally users weren't restarting their iDevice after installing it so they were complaining that the patch did not work. Because of this, Corona 1.0-5 was released (current version) that not only fixes iBooks, but also fixes the launchd problem again (as cited by saurik), but it will also force you to reboot your iDevice so that the patch will certainly work effectively.

    Corona, even with this update, is patched in iOS 5.1 and we highly recommend that you update to iOS 5.0.1 and get your untethered jailbreak as soon as possible. This is especially so with those of you who have been waiting for an iBooks fix in order to update. There is no reason not to update if you have a newer iDevice sometime this week because pod2g just posted today, proof of an untethered jailbreak for the iPhone 4S which means that the A5 unethered jailbreak is very close to being released.

    Corona 1.0-5 will patch all of the following jailbroken devices running iOS 5.0.1:
    • iPhone 4
    • iPhone 3GS
    • iPod touch 4G
    • iPod touch 3G
    • iPad 1


    Get downloading!

      EDIT: I went to get it from Cydia but I don't see 1.0-5, I only see 1.0-3.
      Refresh the Cydia packages.

      Don't know what could be causing your problems because here I am with an iPod touch 4G using Corona 1.0-5 (try enabling private browsing):

      The syslog says something about fonts. I have my fonts symlinked to my private partition (to free system space) so maybe that's causing the problem.

      Tried installing this several times last night and had to wait until this morning in the end because it was that popular cydia just wouldn't refresh for me.

      Got it now, I didn't really have any problems with iBooks myself but an update is an update.

      Weird effect – after installing Corona, the Maps app fails.

      I installed Corona 1.0-5 on an iPhone 4. The iPhone had previously been jailbroken using redsn0w 0.9.10b3, preserving baseband 01.59.00.

      Good news: the Corona install made iBooks work.
      Bad news: the Corona install made Maps fail. Even after rebooting the iPhone (multiple times), pressing the Maps icon resulted in a brief moment while Maps was presumably loading, but then it reverted back to the home screen.

      I uninstalled Corona in Cydia — which un-jailbroke the phone. :-O
      Luckily, re-jailbreaking is easy; I simply again ran redsn0w 0.9.10b3 (unchecking Cydia since it was already installed), and Maps again worked (although iBooks is again not working).

      I am not sure if this affects people who did NOT create the custom IPSW used to preserve baseband. And I am not sure that even people who jailbroke they way I did will experience the Maps app failure. But, this is a warning.
