    Default iBooks Doesn't work after 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak
    Hey guys, I have an iPhone 4(GSM) running iOS 5.0.1, last night (dec 26) I used redsnow(0.9.10b) for windows 2 jailbreak and now my iBooks keeps having this error message pop up, it then gives you the choice to either sign in or don't sync, I tried both options & nothing works and it keeps Quiting on me, I tried changing everything under "General settings" > "iBooks" and still nothing, PLEASE Help

    My iPhone4 is on 5.0.1 and jailbroken (semi-tethered) using Sn0wbreeze and semi-tether. iBooks worked fine and would sync with iTunes. But I applied the Corona 5.0.1 untether v1.0-3 and got the same thing with iBooks as you described. Appearantly the new exploit used in the untethered jailbreak breaks iBooks and when Corona is installed it overwrites the fix that Sn0wbreeze had for iBooks. I'm sure that they will find a way to fix iBooks with the untether, but in the meantime I found two options for the iPhones in our house:

    1. Go back to the semi-tether jailbreak by uninstalling Corona and re-installing semi-Tether and then rebooting using iBooty. iBooks was back to normal, but the iPhone is also back to a semi-tether, which is not such a big deal.

    2. Keep the Corona untether and replace iBooks with Stanza. I installed Stanza and used Calibre (in Content Server mode) on my PC to transfer my ebooks from my PC to Stanza. So far I find that Stanza is just as good a reader as iBooks. I miss the bookshelf display in iBooks but Stanza has a pretty neat coverflow style display for the books if you turn the iPhone horizontal. And I have my untethered jailbreak.

    Default supposed fixes
    There are supposed fixes, most of which involve moving the iBooks application from the mobile/applications section of the device to root /Applications. You can do this with "iBooksFix2" on cydia, people say. I haven't tried yet... so many people are having this issue I am just going to wait until there is a definitive fix from the experts.

    in the meantime check out these links:

    iBooks fix & iFile crashes, iOS 5.0.1 Untethered? - MacRumors Forums
    Redsn0w 0.9.10b2 Fixes Some issues With iOS 5.0.1 Untethered JailBreak - iPhoneHelp

    I did try applying the Corona b3 update over my PwnageTool 5.0.1 jailbreak, but that didn't fi the problem. That in theory should be the same as applying redsnow 0.9.10b2, which I did not try.

    Can anyone confirm that doing that (RS 0.9.10b2) actually did fix iBooks (and didn't introduce any other problems??)

    The guys on twitter said they fixed it, another guy said just move iBooks to the applications folder to fix it

    Yeah, you are right. This redsn0w 0.910b2 breaks ibooks. The previous version of redsn0w 0.9.9b8 fixes it but tethered jailbreak.

    I got iBooks fix from Cydia and it works fine cz it makes it a native application, so for a sec I had 2 iBooks icons, got rid of the one from AppStore kept one from Cydia and works beautifully

    there are several iBooks fixes. Which did you use, and on which jailbreak? But anyway, IMO this is not a good solution. iBooks is an app store app for a reason. it gets updated periodically. If you do this you obviously cannot update it through iTunes. There should be a better way that lets you retain your existing app store install.

    You do not need the SemiTether package for a semi tethered jailbreak..............The new Mobile Substrate semi tethers it on it's own........................The whole point of the SemiTether package is to protect Notification Center widgets (which I found it does not), and to protect extensions from breaking that allow you to boot into a none-jailbroken state, unlike before with the Mobile Substrate on iOS 4.

    If you keep the original iBooks (in a folder, or hide the app via SBSettings or Springtomize 2), then you can still sync whatever you want with iTunes. But if you keep the fixed iBooks and delete the original, then you will not be able to sync with iTunes. FYI

    Just google "iBooksFix2" and you'll find the repo................Better than waiting for someone to reply.lol

    I have an interesting issue here: I performed the untethered JB on my iPhone 4 with absolutely no issues whatsoever, installed iBooksFix2 from Cydia, and didn't have any issues with iBooks running at all. However, when I go into settings to make sure that my books and settings are being synched, there's nothing under the iBooks settings, nothing at all.

    Other than that issue, everything is just perfect. Anyone else seen this?

    I also have iPhone 4(GSM) untethered 5.0.1 and installed ibooksix2 from Cydia, when I go to Settings > iBooks, it shows full justification, sync collection, all of that jazz, I recommend uninstalling and deleting iBooks app"s" and then get iBooks from AppStore and Cydia again, maybe that'll work

    I hadn't had a chance to post before now, but uninstalling and reinstalling iBooks did the trick for me, all is well, and I didn't have to install iBooksFix2 because the updated Mobile Substrate in Cydia also fixes iBooks.

    It's all good now!
