    Just updated to iBooks 2.0, and have 5.0.1 jailbroken. For some reason no matter what I do, I can't sync books back to the iPhone. It shows them copying (even PDF's), but once I launch the app nothing shows up. I tried uninstalling ibookfix2, but that didn't help. Also can't uninstall iBooks when I hold my finger over it. The red X is missing....

    Did you try rebooting your phone? I've run into this issue before when installing apps and then immediately uninstalling them. Weird yes but sometimes necessary to reboot before it will allow you to uninstall.

    You don't need iBooksfix2. Update Corona to 1.05

    The issue I'm having is that iBooks is somehow stuck on the iPhone, so I can't update it, and keep getting iBooks was unable to install message. Gonna try restoring my iPhone to see if wiping everything will help solve the issue.

    Is Corona found in a base Cydia install? (I'm jailbreaking with pwnagetool)

    Don't know these terms you're trying to make work, but just search Corona 5.0.1 Untether in Cydia

    I had this loop issue and a reboot stopped it. It kills the battery too.

    I have an untethered jailbreak. Should I install iBooks 2.0 before or after Corona?

    I don't think you're talking about the same issue that I'm experiencing.

    Only released today

    It's important to note iBooks 2 came out today which means it wasn't tested on Corona........ Your best bet is to uninstall and wait for a Dev member or cydia to issue an update.

    So iBooks 2 installs over iBooks 1.5. The question everyone wants to know the answer to: Does iBooks 2 need a fix also on jailbroken phones? :confused:

    Here's a little update:

    I've installed Corona 1.0-5, and then iBooks 2. Everything seems to be working now. Thanks everyone for all the help.
