    Using this guide http://www.redmondpie.com/how-to-by...-on-iphone-ipad-ipod-touch-running-ios-5.0.1/ I have been able to download and install iPhoto, but it crashes after updating the library, anyone know why this is? When using the camera connection kit my iPad is displaying loads of weird file types that are unrecognised, I think this may have something to do with it but I am using pwntunes so guessing those files are relating to that? iMovie, pages etc works fine doing this but iPhoto will just not work. All apps have been officially purchased so its nothing to do with that.

    Thanks

    Did you upgrade to iOS 5.1 first? iPhoto probably uses features/APIs only present in 5.1.

    I've seen similar articles about getting iMovie and iPhoto on an iPad 1 running iOS 5.1. I have yet to see an article on how well they run. Slow, I would guess, and best if used right after a restart.

    No as there was no need to be able to install iMovie.

    Im guessing you suggestion is why it's not working!

    Yes, there's a reason they are 5.1 only, and whilst it appears you can hack iMovie and it will run, iPhoto is probably a step too far. It's never a good idea to do this unless you can be sure of what is happening under the covers.

    apparently when an app is downloaded if it has a software restriction it will do a check on the systemversion.plist, hence why when you edit that file the AppStore says yes it's 5.1 ok to install, but I hear what your saying editing any system files is risky, especially when the 5.0.1 iOS window has now closed!

    I see there is a fix in Cydia tonight which is supposed to fix iPhoto running on JB 5.0.1. You might want to try it out...

    Cydia has a really good search you know ;) iPhoto would be a good thing to try :D
    But if you really need to be spoon fed, the package is called "iPhoto501Fix". Enjoy.

    Oh the joy! I just updated following the tutorial at Redmond Pie and dl'd iPhoto and installed the fix from Cydia. Fabulous! It worked for me. I have read that this will not survive a sync in the iPad 1 and am wonderind if, since I edited the .plist in iFile, will this now survive a sync? Thanks to all the folks who bring us all this jailbroken goodness!

    Cheers, Dan:eek:

    Folks should take heed. The two users above this post have both lost their jailbreak as a result of this hack. Don't do this unless you understand what the consequences are and don't blindly click "Confirm" in Cydia without reading what it is about to do...!

    Corona is dependant on IOS 5.0.1. Cydia will try to remove it with disastrous consequences, if you hack your iPad2 to make it think it's got 5.1 on it!

    iPad2 jailbreaks are precious things. You need to look after them! ;)

    *****WARNING***WARNING***WARNING*****
    Please be aware that after having modified the above mentioned .plist, after updating an app in Cydia, my iPad went into a cycle of resprings of which I was unable to overcome. Please refrain from using this hack as I believe this is what gorked my jailbreak. My only alternative was to reformat and upgrade to iOs 5.1 I am not the only one who has had this happen
    PLEASE do not do this unless you are ABSOLUTELY SURE of the outcome. Please see the posts in this thread for more on this issue; http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/68344-jailbreak-no-longer-working-ipad-2-a.html

    Ok, I could not stand not having the jb and I went back to 4.3.3

    Xbmc is too essential for me.
