    And what would be some impelling motives to do so, besides the ability to change fonts? Can you go back to the original iBooks if you jailbreak? I don't like the current one because it's way too slow.

    Themes, system tweaks like easy access to change settings, hide icons, infinite icons in a folder, on your dock, or scrollable homescreens. That's just a few of the reasons people jailbreak.

    There is a jailbreak for 4.3.5 but it's tethered. Not sure what iBooks has to do with jailbreaking. :confused:

    Before, if you jailbroke, you couldn't use iBooks. I'm not sure if this was fixed though.

    The only negative about jailbreaking is you have to always have your iphone plugged in because if it turns off you cant turn it back on with the power button.

    That's called a tethered JB.
    Not all JB's are tethered though.
    The latest 4.3.5 is a tethered JB.
    4.3.3 firmware and below are all untethered.

    For tethered you have to plug it back in and run the program you used to jailbreak it and it will boot up.

    I was on 4.3.5 till I realized it was only tethered JB. Went back to 4.3.3 untethered & yes iBook works perfectly fine on mine.
