    I think it's a bug.
    Because I installed it 3 days ago, and I'm on 1.1.4 and when I opened it up, it showed the spinning wheel at the bottom and then a message cut off....I mean. When I double tapped the home button, the music controls should've come up, but it came out in the wrong place

    Looks like it needs to be 777 not 755. Did that and it works for me now.

    chmod -R 777 /private/var/mobile/Media/EBooks

    Dodgy book update

    I tried everything, reinstalling the app, changing the permissions, moving the books, and the only thing that worked was uninstalling the updated app and ssh my old book app that I backed up a long time ago. Try and find a download somewhere and make a copy of your old apps because a couple of wonky ones has caused me many sleepless nights. Good luck

    I just had the same problem. I discovered is was a problem with my symlinks. Once I manually set those, everything worked fine.

    I found this strange as it installed with no troubles last week. However, I did re-jailbreak a day or two after that. So, I'm wondering if ziphone didn't work properly this time. It worked perfect the first time around last week.

    Regardless, fixing the symlinks solved my Books problem.
