Update 2: August 17, 2011 The TechExxpert guide has been updated to fully allow Xcode 4.1 to work. Sorry that the past fixes did not work. Thanks for the comments! Please let me know if this guide works/doesn't work.

Update: This guide has been modified to the latest updates as of August 2, 2011 including the latest Xcode 4.1 and OS X Lion 10.7.

Apple has been adamantly refusing to create an iPhone SDK support for Windows-based machines. Luckily, there is a work around to be able to fully run the iOS SDK and Xcode support for most all PC's.

The following steps involve installing a virtual machine on your PC, updating the virtual machine to 10.7 , then running the machine and downloading and installing the iOS SDK and Xcode on to the virtual machine.

There are other ways to install OS X on your machine but they involve creating a new partition and installing the Operating System directly to your hard drive. Those ways are much harder and have more confusing steps that could potentially damage your computer. This method is easier and safer to use.

The process will take 2-3 hours, but most of the time is consumed by large downloads. There's no software to buy or developer fees to pay.

Instructions

1. Follow the steps here to download and install a virtualized version of OS X Lion on your PC.

2. If you don't have a free Apple Dev Account, create one here. You'll need this to be able to download Xcode 4.1 for free. In OS X, open the App Store and download Xcode. You can view progress of the download under the Purchases tab.


3. Once the progress bar is finished, it will say it is installed but it really isn't. Open the Applications folder from Finder. Double-click on the Install Xcode icon.


4. Follow the on-screen directions then wait for the installation to finish.



6. Once it's done, it should open by itself. If it doesn't, you will NOT find the iPhone SDK in your dock. You will need to open your hard drive. Then Click on Developer, then on Applications.


7. You will now see an icon for Xcode, click it and you can start coding applications.

If the icons don't show up, you may not have enough virtual hard drive space to fit the program. Make sure you have at least 10 GB of free memory in the virtual machine. Restarting your machine may be another way to make the icon appear.

Now you can start coding an app for your personal use. The language you will be coding in is Objective-C. If you don't have any experience with Objective-C, TheNewBoston provides free tutorials on Xcode and Xcode iPhone development. I recommend following the Objective-C tutorials
first.

You will be able to test your app on the iPhone simulator in Xcode but you will not be able to add the app to your own device. To add an app that you've created to your device, see the two options below.

Option 1: If you want to submit your app to the App Store, you will need to pay Apple $100 for an official Developers Certificate. This will allow you to sell your app to a very large audience but Apple does place large restrictions on its approval of submissions.

Option 2: If you don't want to pay the $100, you can develop your application for Cydia (similar to the App Store). This option will also allow you to place your app on to your iPhone, not just only in the Xcode simulator.

Cydia is the unofficial App Store for users who have jailbroken and want to sell/share their apps. There are almost no restrictions as to what kind of apps that can be added to Cydia.

To develop for Cydia, you will need to have your device jailbroken (How do I jailbreak?) and before you start developing your app, you will need to follow these steps to create an alternate Certificate.

i installed the mac os update and system just freezed and i restarted the VM without installing Kernel update. now it doesn't boot up? any solution?

Deadfire55 said... @ January 23, 2011 at 8:19 AM

@xcode. Try to remove the darwin.iso from the Settings window, start the machine, power off the machine, put the darwin.iso back and now try to power on the machine.

If that doesn't work, what exactly do you mean by it doesn't boot up? Does it get to a screen and then freeze or something else?

Sorry about that, the guide has been fixed! Check steps 9 and 10 again to solve your problem.

Thanks that worked perfect, but one question is it also possible to boot or restart the machine over the apple symbol or only over the VMware bar, for me it isn´t working over the apple button??

"I get the dreaded Mac OS X Server 10.6 (experimental).vmx" is not a valid virtual machine configuration file"

make sure you click on Mac OS X Server 10.6 (experimental).vmx and not _Mac OS X Server 10.6 (experimental).vmx

After a period of inactivity inside the virtual machine, I can't get the mouse to appear inside it (the whole OS freezes). Once i got it back somehow, does anybody know a solution to this bug. It happens quite often and restarting the OS every time it happens is not an option.

""@xcode. Try to remove the darwin.iso from the Settings window, start the machine, power off the machine, put the darwin.iso back and now try to power on the machine.""

Hi. I virtualize OS X and it goes perfectly, but after I install the two updates it gives me a lot of problems. The first time it froze after the update, so I restarted it by VMware, but at the restart it gave me a 'panic error cpu...'. I deleted the virtual machine and created a new one. This time after installing the updates it didn't froze, but after I restarted it VMware says 'Operating System not found'.
Please help me since I don't want to virtualize it again for the third time and I really need Xcode.

Any idea how to update to 10.6.6? Everything else works but now can't find the download for Xcode 3.2.5. And the new version 3.2.6 requires 10.6.6

If you carefully watch the video, you can see that you should not restart after update, install the kernel update and then restart your OS, VMPlayer shutdown problem is resolved with that way.

Everything else works up to this pint and i have tried repeating the same steps over and over and over but can't get this working. the installer literally does nothing at all eveyr single time i have ever run it. And I have run it many times. Please get back to me with something usefull. This is completely bunk.

THis does not work. Xcode does not install. The installer runs and says that it succeeeded but nothing appears in the described directory \Developer\Applications. I have tried just about everything I can including including repeating any and all o the steps in various combinations starting from the very beginning. Everything works up until xcode install. Nothing is installed even though I wait for an hour while the scrollbar moves. It isn't being placed somehwere else on disk either since after the installation states that it has finished successfully the disk has the same amount of space. Please help

I have done the Terminal uninstall, and reinstalled on the new Admin account, but it still crashes with an error that looks like the original expected error.

By the way, I was unable to do the uninstall on the terminal at first, because it prompted for a user password. The default Lion User account doesn't actually have a password on it, so I was unable to proceed until I created a password for the Lion User. Then the terminal uninstall procedure went fine. A shame the reinstall on the new account didn't work.

I successfully installed OS X and am waiting for Xcode to download (I had to use the link developer.apple.com/downloads/index.action because the app store wouldn't work).
However, the performance is somewhat lacking.. opening the launchpad and resizing windows is pretty slow, and there is some keyboard and mouse lag occasionally. Any tips for improving performance? In VMware, I allocated as many cores and as much memory as the OS would support. I'm also running it from a SSD.

Hi,

I'm getting a "Boot Failed. EFI SCSI Device" error. Any idea what would cause this? I have the latest version of VMWare Workstation that I just installed into Windows 7.

Thanks,

According to VMware I have 2 HDD, 1 40GB and 1 5GB, I tried adding another 40GB HDD but still the icons don't show up, can someone tell me what I can do to resolve this?

Thanks!

The virtual OS X Lion works perfectly for me but I am having issues installing xcode. When using the install assistant, it gets all the way to the installation step before becoming stuck on "Waiting for other installations to complete..." forever. Any known fixes?

Hey there, everything went well, twice... But after I install Xcode it asks me to update Itunes as well, because my phone wont work with a lower version of Itunes. When thats done and the virtual computer restarts I cant get into iOs again. It just loads till it shows a stopsign. It seems that this breaks the install. Anything I can do or should I just NOT update iTunes...?

Hi is there anyone successfully uses xCode in windows7 among guys here now aside of the moderator of this tutorial..

I really like to learn coding for iOS platform.. so as the cross platforms and android.. But this iOS will be tough for non mac users.. Thanks!

It's not really xcode on windows. its on mac. Only that mac is virtualized.

What would be cool is that actually XCode would run on windows somehow :)

Anonymous said... @ June 20, 2012 at 12:27 AM

It worked for me, but Xcode 4.3 has some bugs. The right click menu to add icons to your app does not have 'select file' therefore you cant add icons to your apps, very frustrating

Cydia is very dangous when your just want to allow people to get your app. I used to use for my developing and then I got hacked from it. If you want to give your apps out in a safe mannner I found a cydia alternative called openappmkt

There's is a difference between template and layout. What I continually see repeated over the web, and here, is the template word being applied less correctly. Dictionary wise:

template: "something that serves as a model for others to copy"
layout: "the way in which the parts of something are arranged or laid out"

Colon Renewal will circulate the blood in the body, flushing out any harmful toxins or additives that have been left behind by the foods that you consume, or the environmental pollutants that you have been exposed to. The benefits of Colon Renewal are the primary reasons why so many customers trust this product over other colon cleansing products.

Doctors are happy to have a natural, safe alternative to offer their patients. Most colonic cleanses cannot offer this guarantee. Many contain harsh chemicals and additives that can leave patients frustrated and unhappy with the results. It just makes sense that doctors want to offer their patients doctor formulated products that are safe and natural.
