    so i opened terminal and typed: $ sudo <Xcode>/Library/uninstall-devtools --mode=all

    but terminal says no such file found

    that exactly what it says to type in terminal to uinstall xcode in the Xcode Manual.

    i instralled xcode 4.1 just to test it out and i want to uninstall it. how do i do it guys?

    It also says that <Xcode> needs to be replaced with the actual directory that you installed it into. It might just be /Developer/, or /Developer/Xcode/, I forget 'cause I don't have it installed right now. Spotlight could probably find the uninstall file for you.

    There is a "developer" folder in Macintosh hd and within that is Xcode. So what should I change the command to ?

    Btw, there is no uninstaller file, this is the only way I think.

    Just type it, Terminal hides password characters instead of displaying "*", just type and hit enter...

    I'm pretty sure the password doesn't show during a Sudo authentication.

    As above, in Terminal nothing appears when you type your password, unlike GUIs where it displays a dot

    I also found it to be pretty rubbish for me

    I installed it and it was the only app i ran in 2 days of using my new mba that turned the fans on whilst installing it.

    Wasn't for me and i just went to the dev folder in terminal and installed it, same as you did after about 10 minutes.

    Perhaps some people have a use for it, maybe the iphone apps or something.
