    There is no official fix for iBooks yet. It is being worked upon. The only ones available are via repos which promote piracy and for the avoidance of doubt members are NOT allowed to post those here. Anyone who does so will be disciplined in accordance with our rules.

    I just tried GPowerPro on my phone and something is definitely up. I'll look into it a little more and see if I can find out what...

    I've been digging Stanza. Really nice interface and functionality, and I learned how to connect to Calibre on my PC, so the loss of iTunes sync capability isn't really a hardship. I may not go back even when there is an official fix, but then I haven't been trying to read EPUB files that are bought from iTunes and have DRM applied. For those folks, I don't know if an alternative exists.

    I heard that the untethered redsnow jailbreak was supposed to fix ibooks. iBooks actually opens now without immediately crashing, but I get that message "There is a problem with your iPad..... restore with itunes", and your only option is to quit the app. :(
