    I just upgraded to 1.1.3 with Official Upgrade (Dev) from installer, Downloaded some
    ebooks from installer that in previous versions automatically showed up in Books, now they do not show up. I checked in ftp and they are in /var/root/media/EBooks, the permissions are all set to 755 and Books.app is installed in /Applications/Books.app, its permissions are fine as well. I've already tryed making a directory in /var/mobile/media/EBooks .. but that didnt work either, . any help would be appreciated.. Thanks! BTW the books are .html format.

    /var/root/media and /var/root/media/EBooks (the directories) need to be
    chmod a+rx
    - the second one for sure, maybe the first one as well, maybe even /var/root (but maybe not)

    Just to be sure, the command would be:

    chmod a+rx /var/root/Media
    chmod a+rx /var/root/media/EBooks

    ?

    I had to manually set all chapter files, folders and files to 0755 for Books to encode them right. Working like a charm now.
