Thread: AppStore Applications Not Working On Jailbroken iOS 5 Beta 3

    Default AppStore Applications Not Working On Jailbroken iOS 5 Beta 3


    After playing around on iOS 5 beta 3 while jailbroken, it has been discovered that AppStore applications do not work. They crash and refuse to open. It is an issue that has been reported by a few people, including myself. According to Clayton Braasch (@Vexenon), it is a sandboxing issue. He warns people about upgrading and jailbreaking.



    Although you are able to jailbreak iOS 5 beta 3 with redsn0w, unless you're a developer or don't mind not being able to use AppStore applications, upgrade and jailbreak at your own risk. This is not a problem if you're on stock iOS 5 beta 3.

    It is undetermined whether a fix is in the works or whether it is possible at this current time.

    ====================

    UPDATED: It would appear this issue is only happening with users using redsn0w. Some clarification from iH8sn0w may be the answer to this issue: - read this.

    MuscleNerd tweeted out that redsn0w 0.9.8b2 was released to fix this issue. Read the following article.

    There's almost assuredly a patch to implement to bypass this sandboxing bug/intentional glitch, such is the beauty and nature of root control over a device.

    Now where it could get tricky is if Apple starts putting more strict integrity checks into the OS--such as breaking licenses for paid media/apps, iTunes accounts, Apple server services, etc.

    I dont know about a fix in ios5 but i had the same issue where apps would open and crash on my 4.3.3 ipad 2 after installing a few jailbreak tweaks and all i did to fix was open the app store and download an app and then restarted. It seemed to fix it fine

    To be expected. Hence the betas.
    Even when iOS 5 goes GM and released, there will be apps that won't work until updated. But thankfully many of the popular apps usually try to push out their updates either before the next major release.

    I had the same issue on iOS 5 beta 1 after jailbreak. I would open any app store app, get a white screen and crash. My solution was in iTunes unsync all apps, and then sync back. I don't know If this is the same problem though.

    I don't think information on jailbreaks should be realeased until after the final version has come out. this not giving apple a chance to sandbox anything. jb will always have the upperhand that way....just a thought really haha I'm not developer

    “@MuscleNerd: redsn0w 0.9.8b2 Dev-Team Blog - redsn0w iOS5beta should fix 50b3 App Store issue (if you're already JB, just use this to boot tethered)”

    Update #2:*We’ve update redsn0w to account for the sandbox changes that affected App Store apps in 5.0b3 (and it now recognizes the IPSWs for all three betas so far). *If you already jailbroke 5.0b3 using the previous redsn0w, you don’t need to re-jailbreak…just use this updated version to boot tethered. *Start pointing redsn0w at the 5.0b3 IPSW*starting with 5.0b3.
