Fix iBooks Crashing on iOS 5.0.1 Jailbreak with Redsn0w 0.9.10b4 [Download Links]

Jan 16, 2012 - 25 Comments

Redsnow An updated version of the redsn0w jailbreak utility has been made available to resolve a prominent bug with iBooks and also includes other minor bugfixes that could cause crashing. Versioned as Redsn0w 0.9.10b4, the new release continues to be an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 for the iPhone 4 & 3GS, iPod touch 3rd & 4th gen, and iPad 1, and does not provide support to any other devices.

Fixing the iBooks problem for already jailbroken devices is simple enough, all that is required is to download and run Redsn0w 0.9.10b4 over an existing iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak to apply the fix.

Download Redsn0w 0.9.10b4

Alternatively, the Corona untether has also been updated which applies the same iBooks patch without the need for using redsn0w again. Corona can be downloaded on any jailbroken device for free through Cydia.

    PLEASE HELP!
    So I upgraded to Redsn0w 0.9.10b4 to fix ibooks problem and i still have an ibooks app that i can’t delete and when i open it it closes by itself 2 seconds later. Also when i try to install the official ibooks from the appstore it starts installing and stops half way and says “Unable to Download Application. iBooks could not be installed at this time”. How in the world can I fix this!?

      I was in the same boat as you are in and I still have the ibook app that dont work and cant delete. I did this on my Ipad 1 so I hope it will work for you: Go to Itunes with your device plugged in and delete ibooks from your apps then sync your device the only thing I did different from you I did it before the upgrade hopefully it wont matter. I believe it removes the data but the icon still remains I dont know why, but go to the app store and look for ibooks for your device and it should say install then installl it as usual and it should load if it does load you will have 2 icons the only way I did this I put the the bad ibook icon on the very last page and put the good one in front. I hope it works for you and if you find out how to get rid of the dead app let me know.

    Hi Hanna,
    Had the same issue… I was using ibookfix2 and deleted it from cydia then tried deleting ibooks…I couldn’t either. So i used Ifile (cydia), go to var/stash/application/ibooks.app and delete it. Then respring! Finally install ibooks from app store and enjoy ;)
    Cheers

    How do I uncheck install Cydia in b4? I want to preserve my Cydia and hacks. When I run b4, I get instructions to go into dfu mode. i am not sure the install cydia choice will come after.
