Corona 1.0-5 out now to fix iBooks issues

There have been many reported issues with throughout the entire jailbreaking history of 5.x firmware. Today Corona 1.0-5 was released to solve these issues on the untethered 5.0.1 jailbreak. 1.0-4 was released about a half hour ago but Saurik quickly released 1.0-5 to force to reboot your phone after installation since many users did not realize the device needed to be rebooted for the fix to take effect. Another method called iBooksFix2 was released a while back, but many people still reported problems with iBooks. If you are having issues, be sure to go into Cydia and the newest update to fix your iBooks problems.

If iBooks is still not working for you, let us know below and we will try and help you figure it out!

      You don’t need to add any sources, it is available in the stock repo!

        Oh…. I had some misunderstandings… 
        But if i go to the Corona 5.0.1 Untether, the version is still 1.0-3
        Can I install this?

          You can, but it will not fix iBooks. Only 1.0-4 and 1.0-5 fix the iBooks issue.

      I mean the repos that come with Cydia when you jailbreak.

    Thank you thank you thank you, I’ve been trying to get iBooks to work for weeks.
    iBooksFix2 did absolutely nothing and installing Corona 5.0.1 Untether straight over the top from Cydia and rebooting the device worked perfectly.
    Just incase, I deleted the iBooks app from the iPad first before installing Corona and then once rebooted – reinstalled iBooks directly from the app store.
    Worked perfectly. Hope this helps anyone having the same problems as I did.
