    iTunes has found an update for iBooks, brining it to version 1.2.2. Just wondering if anyone has actually installed it and if so, does it bring back the problem from a while ago where you couldn't open books with DRM?

    Cheers...

    I thought I read somewhere the new version uses a different way of checking for a JB and there is no fix out yet for it.

    This is incorrect. DRM protected books in iBooks work just fine under jb 4.3.2.

    You and me both must have magic iPhone4s!

    When presented with actual experience and a Twitter post, I always believe Twitter. :rolleyes:

    That Twitter post was written by a well-known member of the jailbreak community who has provided you with a previous jailbreaks as well as the previous Cydia iBooks fix for 4.2.1.

    It's not like he's just some random Twitter spammer I happened across...

    I decided to update anyway, and see what happens. It works...

    Many thanks - I knew I saw that somewhere and that was it. I will try updating later since it sounds like it should be fine.

    Instead of starting a new thread, I'm adding to this one.

    Running 4.3.3 jb with the latest redsnow. iBooks crashes when trying to go to the Store. I deleted and reinstalled iBooks and it synced fine, but crashes every time I tap on Store.

    Running the exact same setup but it works fine here. Perhaps try and (re-authorize?) your iTunes account by login and logout of the Store under Settings

    Nope - Same crash - Tap on Store - I see the Featured page and see the spinning circle with Loading underneath it and crash. :(

    Thanks for the idea, though.

    It's not a perfect solution, but if I boot into Safe Mode, iBooks works fine. So, to keep purchased books in synch between my iPhone4 and iPad2, that's what I will do.

    ... v1.3

    Just a note to say that I let iTunes update iBooks to 1.3. It kept crashing when I opened certain books. I deleted it and reinstalled the previous version and it works fine again.
