    No, I'm asking if anyone is running the just-released iBooks 2.1 on a jailbroken 5.0.1

    Good to know, thanks.

    I needed iBooksFix2 from Cydia in order to get 2.0.1 to work on my PwnageTool 5.0.1 JB so "maybe get rid of it and it'll work" probably doesn't apply here.

    I may risk it and take the plunge given that you have it working, though obviously in your case I think something redsn0w 0.910b5 applied is what makes iBooks 2.1 work for you without needing any additional 'fix'.

    I installed iBooks 2.1 on jb 501 with corona updates. It seems to work fine, tho I haven't tried purchases.

    I'm pretty sure you need to get rid of the iBooksfix, tho, and install a proper app store copy. I posted something on my blog about this:

    Fixing the iBooks Fix and iTunes 10.5.3 Box of Clams

    You don't need to do that (unless maybe you're on an iPhone 4S in which case I am not sure – I'm on a 4). I jailbroke with PwnageTool and applied the latest Corona patches right over it. I did some checking first to make sure that was ok, and it was, and it fixed the app store version of iBooks.

    @metaclam I'm on an iPhone 4 with 01.59.00 BB so I have to use PwnageTool to preserve it. Good to hear you can apply Corona over it. Now my problem is that iBooksFix2 already changed iBooks 2.0.1 into a "native" app (no "(x)" when you press on the icon and hold) so I'm wondering how I can un-do that and get it back to a 'regular' App Store app

    Update:

    I uninstalled iBooksFix2, removed iBooks 2.0.1, installed Corona 1.0.8, rebooted, and downloaded iBooks 2.1.

    The good news: iBooks 2.1 works.

    The bad news: All of my JB apps crashed instantly. I couldn't even get in via SSH anymore:

    Code:
    [3:04] nightowl:/ % slogin iPhone -l root
    ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host
    WTF did Corona do to my phone?!?

    Bizarrely, another reboot seems(?) to have fixed that. Things are working again. WTF?

    Looking at the syslog file while it couldn't run anything I see lots of lines like this:

    Code:
    [...]

    What's with all the "Sandbox: hook..execve() killing pid 276: outside of container && !i_can_has_debugger" lines, and why aren't they still happening after the reboot?

    Update:

    I haven't had any problems since that very first restart after installing Corona 1.0.8.

    In fact, not only does iBooks 2.1 work, but I was able to re-install SiriPort and now it works without other apps croaking in the sandbox (cf. my other post) as well! So everything's perfect now ...

    (OK - almost perfect. "Waze" is claiming that it found a bug when it starts up, and tries to auto-send a bug report, but keeps working after that. It didn't do that before I put Corona on. But I can live with that.)

    But I'm a programmer, I believe in Causality. I really can't understand why the Sandbox would kill off nearly every process on my phone with "outside of container && !i_can_has_debugger" errors, yet another reboot magically fixes everything?!?
