iH8Sn0w Has Gotten iBooks Working On Jailbroken iOS 5 Firmware

A very big issue with Jailbreaking the iOS 5 firmware has been iBooks not working. Many users have reported that once they have Jailbroken the iOS 5 firmware they can no longer read iBooks through the stock iOS 5 iBooks.app. This is because of the way RedSn0w/Sn0wBreeze handles Sandbox patches in the kernal when you Jailbreak the iOS 5 firmware using one of these tools.

Note: If you are unaware what Sandbox patches are, they are a security measure that is used to ensure applications such as Safari don’t have access to personal information or system files.

iH8Sn0w has actually gotten iBooks to work on the iOS 5 firmware once Jailbroken and he has uploaded a YouTube video to prove just this.

iBooks Running On Jailbroken iOS 5 Firmware

Unfortunately even though iH8Sn0w has gotten iBooks to work on the Jailbroken iOS 5 firmware, he is not going to be releasing the iBooks iOS 5 fix because it is too unstable for the public. While a fix for iBooks on the iOS 5 firmware will not be released by iH8Sn0w, another developer(s) such as the iPhone Dev-Team are likely to release a fix in the near future.

    Congrats on the fix – I hope the ever generous dev teamcan make a release of it.  I’m sure a lot of us would prefer to buy the Jobs bio on ibooks but right now for a jailbroken iphone that’s a no-go.

    Why even bother posting such crap with a headline that reads “iBooks Running On Jailbroken iOS 5 Firmware” only to kill everyones hopes by shoving “Unfortunately even though iH8Sn0w has gotten iBooks to work on the Jailbroken iOS 5 firmware, he is not going to be releasing the iBooks iOS 5 fix because it is too unstable for the public” into the article. LAME

    Did you watch the video?  If it is the same video I watched, he gave instructions on how you can fix it yourself.
