I didn't update from b2 to b3 but I don't want to because I already had to restore twice from this jailbreak. Not that I must restore, I don't want to risk restoring again.

I had JB'd with the b2 update. Everything worked fine until I used PKGBackup to reinstall my apps and tweaks. My phone kept going into Safe Mode, until I removed Backgrounder. Then everything worked fine until when I used respring on SB Settings, it going into a long looping respring, and would not come out of it. (I had to hold the power and center button at the same time for 10 seconds to come out of it. So I had to uninstall and reinstall SB Settings. Now everything seems fine. I did not reinstall Backgrounder though. All my other apps and tweaks works fine.

I just upgraded from 5.0.0 with semi-tether to 5.0.1 untethered with redsn0w b3. Everything went fine except my battery life got MUCH MUCH worse than it already was. I pulled my phone from the charger at 6pm yesterday with a 100% charge and woke up this morning at 9am with 11% remaining. There was no activity at all overnight. This sucks. Any suggestions? I already have many of the location services turned off including the infamous "setting time zone"... crap now I'm down to 5% in less than another hour of inactivity!!!

sweet moses don't ever use the restore for your iphone BEFORE you jailbreak. All i had to do to get cydia working right is fresh restore, then set up as a new iphone (not in itunes just in the iphone), then jailbreak - THEN and only THEN restore using your backup on itunes.

12-30-2011, 02:48 PM #128Thanks and Two Questions
First of all, my thanks again to all the volunteers who contributed to this untethered jailbreak effort.
I have two questions.
I updated with the first two Redsnow versions, but not the third. I have updated corona and other items from Cydia.
Is there a reason to use the latest Redsnow update? I fear I might break something that seems to be (largely) working.
The only item not current working quite properly is....big surprise...iBooks.
I tried ibooksfix and ibooksfix2; but neither seemed to work properly for me.
What does work in a non-optimal way is to move ibook files usinig iFile to a different directory. But then one can't easily import books into iBooks using iTunes.
So I am wondering if an official fix for iBooks is coming.

My answer/decline/end buttons are clear i can only see the words, anyone got any ideas???

@Lunky. I posted how mine got working iBooks. Run redsn0w b3 on top of the one you have. Reboot. Open Cydia, upgrade MobileSubstrate. Respring. Reboot.(Yes, first respring, THEN reboot right after). Then install a fresh copy of iBooks. Reboot. Then open iBooks, see if it works. This is how it worked for me.

Perhaps it was because I was already up to date with mobile substrate and corona....but I can not get the latest version of redsnow to run properly. Errors are being registered (tried twice). The phone does reboot as jailbroken.
Needless to say, I tried your ideas out. But ibooks remain unhappy with its current state of affairs, even after following your procedures. But of course it is fair to point out that the latest jailbreak could not be viewed as fully successful (even though the device is in fact jailbroken).

Sorry to hear that it didn't work. I'd try delete iBooks, respring. Reboot. Then re-install iBooks, reboot. Then launch iBooks. Hope an update to the fix shows up, but mine is working. Odd.

how do you uncheck install cydia? I cant seem to find where to uncheck it lol
12-30-2011, 04:56 PM #134
Shorty, select jailbreak and after it starts the jailbreak it will come to that section, you uncheck it.

Repos are running fine for me, of course the once in a while glitch. On my end, iBooks is themed.

Poe, that's a gamble you know? I'm sharing how that worked for me, it's up to you to decide to give it a whirl. If it wouldn't undo a lot of work and time you put to get it where it is, I would try if iBooks is a big deal right now. That was my case and that's how it worked for me. Just saying...
