    Has anyone else had problems using iBooks after they performed the jailbreak for iOS 4.0. Before I jailbreaked the phone, iBooks was working and I could view my books. Now after using redsn0w, I am unable to download books from the store and I cannot sync books that I have on my iTunes to the phone. It also keeps on asking me for my itunes sign in and asks for me to sync. It keeps on popping the same message over and over. Is there a fix for this?

    What a bummer. Was looking forward to using it. What site do you use to see when there would be an update or fix for that.

    I understand its still in beta and there are some bugs. Hopefully a fix comes soon.

    Me too

    I played with it for about an hour as well. I deleted and reinstalled the app about 20 times and never could get it to show up. Guess I know why now! I saw someone above had used PwnageTool to jailbreak and had the same problem? I used the redsn0w beta last night...

    The sad part is the iBooks app was one of the things I was most excited about using. I have it on my iPad and really wanted to sync my spot between the iPad and the iPhone. :-/

    They just released a new version of redsn0w that's supposed to fix the books app error. I'm about to test it out...I'll let you know how it goes!

    Update: IT'S FIXED!!!! Bookmark synching between devices works flawlessly as well!

    Did it impact performance when you ran redsn0w again?

    can also confirm the new redsn0w beta fixed the ibooks issue. try re-downloading the book if it says fail to find source or whatever it said.

    I wonder if there's another fix besides having to use Pwnagetool to create a new custom IPSW and starting all over again.

    I've ran redsn0w three times so far (turning multitasking, wallpapers, battery percentage on and off) and it hasn't seemed to make a difference to me speed wise.

    IT could be that I was just too thrilled with the speed boost after turning off all the extra stuff though.

    I hate to admit it, but Steve was right this go around. The 3g really doesn't handle the multitasking and wallpaper function that well.

    It actually works great with multitasking, but the wallpaper just kills it.

    ugh what's up with the huge margins on the left and right side, kinda takes away 40% of screen space :(

    anyway to decrease this?

    EDIT - o nm guess itwas stanza's epub that was messing it up
