    Help! Used Spirit Jailbreak, now PDFs don't appear in iBooks!

    Hello all,

    Yesterday I used Spirit to jailbreak my ipad and all went well. However, the first time I launched iBooks something peculiar happened. The display flashed for a moment, then redrew the iBooks "shelf" but missing was the button to show which PDFs were on the iPad. I resynced but the pdfs did not reappear. As a precaution I removed iBooks, then reinstalled iBooks and resynced. Still no pdfs in iBooks.

    Any ideas?

    Have you tried rebooting your device?

    uninstall iBooks from your iPad and from iTunes. Sync the iPad then install iBooks again in iTunes. Sync again.

    PDF button in books only appears when you have PDF files synced. Are you shure that you already have pdf files in your ibook app ?

    ZeeDD has a point - have you tried opening any new PDF files with iBooks? Maybe that will revive the shelf.

    I already had PDFs synced when I jailbroke and the pdf button in iBooks went away. I double checked, they're still in iTunes under books.

    There in itunes, but are there any on your iPad?

    when you select your ipad i itunes and go to the books tab it will let you check weather all books are synced or if only selected books are synced. Make sure the PDF's are being transferred over to the ipad.
