The Dev Team has recently updated their renowned RedSn0w jailbreak tool to version 0.9.10b5 in order to fix the DRM issue for iBooks on jailbroken devices.

This fix, which was developed by PlanetBeing and integrated into RedSn0w, overcomes the jailbreak detection by iBooks that would cause some images to not display properly, if at all…

If you’ve had problems with iBooks, you may want to run RedSn0w on top of your existing jailbreak, making sure you do not select Cydia, should you decide to do that.

The Dev Team notes on its blog that:

If auto-detection fails and redsn0w tells you no identifying data was found, you can always pre-select the appropriate 5.0.1 IPSW using “Extras->Select IPSW”.

If you don’t want to use RedSn0w, Corona should be updated shortly to version 1.0-6 to incorporate this iBooks fix. When it hits Cydia, you can simply install or update the package.

As always, you can download RedSn0w from our downloads section. For more information about this jailbreak tool, please refer to our dedicated RedSn0w page. Those of you who aren’t sure how to use RedSn0w can also check out our comprehensive RedSn0w guides to:

    So it IS safe to use corona if I originally jailbroke my iPod 4g with redsnow?

      As usual, you can choose to install the fix either by re-running redsn0w over your existing jailbreak (de-select Cydia if you do that), or by installing the corona package from Cydia (it’s the same set of files no matter which way you choose).

  • Is this method safe to use after JB with Sn0wbreeze with preserved BB on iPhone 4? Or Pwnage Tool?

    I have been searching but can’t find an appropriate answer. Next week I will retiring a active duty 3G and switching it to t-Mobil. Should I use the current version of redsnow and tiny umbrella to bring it to 4.2.1? Or older version? Or snowbreeze? (I have my blobs)

  • I had “AppleBCMWLAN:handleOKitbusywatchdogTimeout(): Error, no successful firmware download after 60000ms!! Giving up…” Error on 1st try.

    [I ReEntered DFU Mode]

    On 2nd try I left Cydia checked and it worked OK.

    Just writing, so you know, It’s not some kind of fatal error.

  • can I use Absinthe to jb an iPhone 4 on 5.0.1?
