The Corona package has since then been updated multiple times to fix numerous bugs. Today's update which brings version number up to 1.0-6, will fix iBooks DRM issue.

What exactly is iBooks DRM issue? Apple programs some of its apps to crash when they detect that unsigned code is running in the system. Since applying a jailbreak means running unsigned code, issues with the iBooks app are often reported after a new jailbreak is released. Keeping in mind this security system we now know why text or images in some books, opened in iBooks app, would disappear without a clue. If the book in question has content which is protected by digital rights management, it will cease to appear. The Corona 5.0.1 untether update will fix this problem.
