Normally, I wouldnt have any problem tweaking my phone, plist, anything, in anyway, because I could always restore to a jailbroken firmware.....But at the moment, this is not a option.

I followed the directions and so far so good for me. At first I did loose my settings app icon but after a few reboots it back to normal. I changed the plist file back to 5.0.1 and the activator error went away. Now iPhoto is working fine.
Not sure what Saurik meant when he said you enter "Game Over". Can anyone elaborate on this?

I believe the main concern is just that while the device is faking iOS 5.1, random weird things can happen. If you change it to 5.1 and then immediately change it back to 5.0.1, minimal random weird things will probably happen, but it's hard to tell.

This just may be the single most intelligent, helpful, on topic thread I have ever read here on MMI (knocking on wood)...Thanks for all the knowledge and thoughts guys!
I have a 4s, have my 4 laying around...might try this just out of curiosity!!El Zurdo

I got it to work by first changing the file to 5.1, then i downloaded iphoto but not from appstore but my browser, then put it in itunes which btw I never read 5.1 but it did remove the update/remove banner, then just installed it from there without any warnings from itues. After just went to cydia and got the fix, changed the file back to 5.0.1 and respring and that's it. So far no problems with any app.

Hi, you thought i should let you guys know that this also helps with iMovie. I got on ios 5.0.1 and it works.

Hi, i did this and it works fine for me ... but when i sync with iTunes it removes the iPhoto app automatically and I have to install it again ... any solutions regarding this ???

Install *mod edit* iOS 5+
Cracked apps and warez on this site are against the rules.

That's what happened to me. No matter what I did, no matter how many times I edited it back, nothing would fix it.
I was ready to upgrade to 5.1 (and kill my jailbreak) when I gave it one last shot and replaced the file with one from another iPhone and it solved the problem.
So far, those are the only two ways I've seen to fix this issue.

Hello everyone~ I wanted to use iPhoto on my iPhone 4s running iOS 5.0.1 so I installed iPhoto501Fix. Although the program functioned flawlessly, SpringBoard now crashes when I activate IntelliScreenX, SB Settigs or when I press the Sleep button. Logically, I removed iPhoto501Fix... BUT, the problem still persists! Using iFile I navigated to /Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries & looked for any remnants of iPhoto501Fix, but there was nothing & I have already re-edited my SystemVersionPlist back to 5.0.1.
Now I keep my phone in Safe Mode otherwise it Resprings into Safe Mode everytime it goes to sleep.
I would REALLY appreciate it if anyone could help...

BEWARE READERS... because after I did this, my iPhone 4s on iOS 5.0.1 crashes EVERYTIME I try to bring down my IntelliScreenX or SB Settings drop down menu OR also when I press the Sleep Button OR even when the phone goes into sleep mode. Yes, I uninstalled iPhoto501Fix & also changed my SystemVersion.plist back to 5.0.1 BUT the problem STILL persists!!!
PROCEDE @ YOUR OWN RISK!!!
