    Officially, only old versions are supported, which can't be used for compiling for 5.1.1, let alone 6.0b. However, you can easily hack even the latest Xcode versions to run under SL:

    Excerpt from :

    From the Dev Forum Link

    "I for one can't upgrade to Lion as I have stuff in my environment which apparently breaks under Lion. So rather than restore my devices to 5.0.1 and all the hassle that involves, I put my hacking hat on and came up with the following solution.

    It presumes your current XCode 4.2 installation is in /Developer, and make sure XCode is NOT running.

    Download the Lion 4.3.1 XCode DMG file, and mount it so that you can see it from Finder.

    Fire up a Terminal (Applications->Utilities->Terminal) - don't worry UNIX-virgins, it's all straightforward :)

    Now enter the following commands into the terminal (note, your password will have to be entered after the first command):

    sudo cp -R /Volumes/Xcode/ /Developer/Platforms/iPhoneOS.platform/Developer/SDKs/
    sudo cp -R /Volumes/Xcode/ /Developer/Platforms/iPhoneSimulator.platform/Developer/SDKs/
    sudo cp -R /Volumes/Xcode/\ \(9B176\) /Developer/Platforms/iPhoneOS.platform/DeviceSupport/
    cd /Developer/Platforms/iPhoneOS.platform/DeviceSupport/
    sudo rm -f ./Latest
    sudo ln -s ./5.1\ \(9B176\) ./Latest

    Now just unmount the dmg in Finder, fire back up XCode, and your 5.1 device will now work with XCode 4.2...
