How To Fix iPhoto Crashing Issue On iOS 5.0.1 [Cydia Tweak]


People were really appreciative of iPhoto as soon as it was released on the iPad event a few days back. The app is just about perfect for people who like to use their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch as a primary camera, and like to share their photos with friends on the go. Unfortunately, for all its positives, this new iOS app has a huge drawback. It’s plagued by crashing issues on iOS 5.0.1, and many users have seen their $4.99 go to waste without being able to do anything about it. If you are encountered by this crashing bug, the app just runs for a few seconds and then crashes without doing anything. No matter what you try, there is no apparent way of fixing the issue. Well, now there is! Enter iPhoto501Fix, a new and free Cydia tweak with just one purpose, fixing the crashing bug in iPhoto.

iPhoto 5.0.1 Fix iPhoto501fix Cydia

Like most fixes available in the Cydia store, iPhoto501Fix works silently but effectively. There is one condition though; before installing the tweak, you have to download iPhoto on your iDevice. If you change this order of proceedings, the fix might not work. So, once the app is installed on your iPhone, go to the BigBoss repo in the Cydia store and install the iPhoto501Fix package. After the installation is complete, restart Springboard and launch the app. Lo and behold, iPhoto is now running on your iPhone with iOS 5.0.1!

The fix is free, and if you have been haunted by the crashing issue of iPhoto, iPhoto501Fix should do the trick, as it did for us, at least.
