    Default iOS 5 iBooks crash after redsn0w
    I recently jailbroke my Verizon iPhone 4 on iOS 5 and tried to open the iBooks app and every time I try to open it, the app crashes and won't open. Is anyone else having this problem?

    I hear iBooks won't work with a jailbroken device on iOS 5. I think the latest fw version that can be jailbroken and works with iBooks is 4.2.6. On 4.2.8 it doesn't allow certain books to be read. So on iOS 5 I believe iYeow said his doesn't work either.

    I don't think iBooks work at all for iOS 5. I was referring to 4.2.8 jailbroken having some books not working. Can't remember the specifics, but 4.2.6 jailbroken is the only fw version with 100% functional iBooks.

    iGuru found a fix for this which I posted somewhere, I'll see if I can find it.

    I've tried it on my iPad but not yet on my iPhone.

    It should work on the CDMA phone so I'll see if I can find it.

    How many times to I have to point out what an awful site that is?

    That is not the fix I used and iGuru's fix has just allowed me to download a bookend open it without a problem onmy iPad running iOS5.

    When I get home I will find the proper fix and post it. I have not tried downloading a paid book but have just downloaded a free book without an issue.

    A respring didn't work for me so I rebooted, iGuru said he thinks he actually resprung twice for it to work not just once.

    Thanks!

    I've been using the patch described in [self-parody site] that works, but with too many caveats.
    I'll try the pastie, see if its any better.

    I think the latest fw version that can be jailbroken and works with iBooks is 4.2.6. On 4.2.8 it doesn't allow certain books to be read.

    I have posted the solution.to get it to work with iOS5 - the only problem being the icon for iBooks is square. Apart from that, everything works.

    It was easy to follow the instructions of what you 'pastied' and iBooks is fully functional again now!!!
    Great thanks.

    (I'm on iphone 4, ATT, iOS 5 - I'm pretty sure this is equally fine for verizon versions)
