He also acknowledged all the hard work @planetbeing put into solving iBooks image loading bugs.

Here are the tweets:

@Saurik: “Corona 1.0-6: @planetbeing put a lot of work into solving iBooks image loading bugs. All users (however jailbroken) on 5.0.1 should install.”

@Saurik: “Corona 1.0-7: @XusBadia reported that 1.0-6 had a “Depends” that made it refuse to install on an original iPad. 🙁 This has been corrected.”

@Saurik: “Corona 1.0-8: psbingner noticed that 1.0-6/7 failed on iPhone 4S 5.0 (the only supported 5.0 build; absinthe’s Corona had worked): fixed. :(“

     I could not uninstall I-books and when I tried to reinstall it hung up.
    The solution was to delete the ibooks app from the /Applications/  That’s where it got moved when applying the ibooksfix2 that I did a while back. After I did that, I was able to reinstall iBooks and all is good now. I used WinSCP to do it.
