If your iPhone is jailbroken on iOS 5.0.1, and you use iBooks, chances are you’ve encountered the dreaded “Configuration Error”.

No worries though, as both RedSn0w and Corona have been updated to remedy the issue.

Inside, we’ll show you how to use the Corona package from the Chronic Dev Team to fix the iBooks issue on jailbroken 5.0.1 devices.

Step 1: Install the latest version of Corona from Cydia.

Step 2: Reboot your device.

Step 3: Load iBooks.

Alternatively, you could use our RedSn0w guide to re-jailbreak your device using the latest version of RedSn0w, and uncheck “install Cydia”. However, the above tutorial is by far the easiest method for fixing the iBooks issue.

Was the fix successful for you?

  • Didn’t work. Don’t know why. I’ll just use the iBooks package from the Callie repo. It works fine.

  • I updated corona last night on my iPad. Installed fine but when doing the reboot process my iPad stayed frozen at the apple logo and every 15-20 mins it would shut back off and turn itself back on, only to freeze at the apple logo again. I tried using redsn0w to fix it, but I keeped getting an error when it came to the scripting part of the jailbreak. I then tried just booting tethered and it got stuck on the pineapple logo. In the end I had to restore and now go through the long and frustrating process of putting the many apps and tweaks back on my device. Anyone else have this issue?

    • Yup same thing i had, just restore and jailbreak with the latest redsn0w

  • Imran Mitha

    will re-jailbreaking remove my current cydia apps and settings?

    • Shouldnt

    • jose castro

      u will always have the jailbreaks tweaks or apps u buy, if u were rejailbreaking ur phone/ipad, u will haft to reinstall ur apps and tweaks.

  • None of the ibooks fixes worked for me fixibooks 2, updated corona, tried to re-jailbreak with updated redsn0w and still iBooks was not fixed. Restored my ipad, jailbroke with redsn0w again and bam, iBooks is fixed. nothing else was working for me…So if your having problems just restore. It will work after that.

  • Works great!

  • I installed corona over my redsn0w jailbreak and everything is perfect now…great job to the teams (“,)
