How to Resolve iBooks Crash Problem on Jailbroken iOS 5 Device

Yesterday we reported you about the launch of Apple co-founder and former CEO Steve Jobs Biography on Amazon Kindle and iBookstore. But if you have been already tethered jailbroken your device running iOS 5 then you must be facing some serious issues while running iBooks App as it crashes over and over again. Don’t worry idownloadblog has brought us a workaround which appears to be working.

Follow the below mentioned step by step guide on how to fix iBooks on a jailbroken iOS 5 device:

Whats Needed

Install iFile Cydia App on your device


Step 1: Uninstall iBooks, and then reinstall iBooks from the App Store. Do not open the app.

Step 2: Open iFile, and copy iBooks.app from /var/mobile/Applications/(iBook’s folder)/ to /Applications. You can use SBSettings, or just go through each folder to identify the correct iBooks folder. If you don’t have a lot of App Store apps, this should be simple.

Step 3: Tap on /Applications/iBooks.app/Info.plist and select property list editor. Tap CFBundleIdentifier and change com.apple.iBooks to com.apple.iBooksFix

Step 4: Exit iFile and Respring.

Step 5: Delete the original iBooks app (rounded corners) and keep the square iBooks app.

Step 6: Since you can’t use the iBookstore on device, and you can’t sync with iTunes, upload your .epub files using the methods outlined on the video, dropbox, etc. From there you can open them using iBooks where you will be able to read them.
