Earlier today we showed you how to fix the iBooks crashing error on the iOS 5.0.1 firmware with an Untethered Jailbreak. The method we showed you has had mixed reactions, and involves manually adding a .deb file to your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad using a filesystem browsing tool like i-funbox. Due to numerous comments and emails we have realized there is an easier way to fix the iBooks iOS 5.0.1 crash error that simply involves downloading/installing a package from the xsellize repo.
In this tutorial from iJailbreak.com you will learn how to fix the iBooks crashing error by installing the iBooks Fix for iOS 5 Cydia package from the xsellize cydia repo.
Note: The xsellize Cydia repo has been known to contain cracked Cydia packages and other unethical Cydia packages. iJailbreak.com does not support the xsellize Cydia repo, but for the purpose of this How To guide we will need to add the xsellize repo to Cydia to be able to download this iBooks fix.
