    Yes. If any of you have done the hack to install any of the new 5.1 ILife or iWork apps then the next operation in Cydia would cause Corona to be removed. There is nothing wrong with xCon AFAIK.

    Is it possible to hack the plists to install the iWork apps, and then revert them?

    Unfortunately I tried to do a tethered boot from redsn0w in order to fix this, but it won't let me as it just gives me an error that it does not support an iPad 2. Any way to bypass that? I think you are correct about the plist hack screwing things up for me. Certainly not trying to lay blame on any particular hack, just want to fix it so I can get back to enjoying my jailbroken iPad 2.

    Well crap, make me three. I edited the .plist a few days ago so I could get iPhoto and also update Pages. Last night I updated a font in Cydia and went to bed. I kept hearing a cyclical beep and sure enough, my iPad was stuck in a viscious cycle of respringing. Well needless to say, I am once again one of the unhappy unjailbroken. :eek:
    Could you post a clear warning in one ofe your stickies, Leigh, so hopefully this doesn't happen to anyone else.
    Thanks.

    Cheers, Dan

    Can I suggest you also back to the "Help with iPhoto" thread and post your own warning there, as both of you that tried it have now lost your jailbreak? That's where the warning belongs, so that's where I've posted.
    Cheers.

    Just an update. I finally gave up and restored to 5.1. Sucks not having my jailbreak but sucked worse not having a very usable iPad. Looks like things are looking promising for a 5.1 jailbreak, so hopefully I won't need to wait long.

    How did you manage to downgrade to 4.3.3?Every other thread I've read on the subject says it's impossible.
