    I want to completely wipe my computer of everything that was installed with:

    xcode311_2517_developerdvd.dmg (which when mounted is called Xcode tools)

    as well as:

    iphone_sdk_for_iphone_os_2.2.19m2621afinal.dmg (which when mounted is called iPhone SDK)

    however i can't seem to find how to do so. Do these packages install files JUST to the developer folder or do they install files in the /system or /library folders or anywhere else for that matter?
    any help would be great.

    P.S I already tried
    Code:
    $ sudo <Xcode>/Library/uninstall-devtools --mode=all
    and it didn't work with this message:
    Code:
    -bash: Xcode: No such file or directory

    If all you want to do is wipe the machine, just reinstall the OS, using your reinstall discs.

    Yeah... except that removes everything I want to keep such as about 8 games, potoshop, iwork, and a few downloaded programs, not to mention all my music and pictures and other basic files!

    I found this thread: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=406373

    Can anyone confirm that this is the best way to go about removing Xcode tools and iPhone sdk?

    i mean change this:
    Code:
    $ sudo <Xcode>/Library/uninstall-devtools --mode=all
    to this:
    Code:
    $ sudo /Developer/Library/uninstall-devtools --mode=all
    and of course I DID remove the $ when i copied the first one to terminal.

    If that is where you installed it then yes. If you installed it somewhere else just change the path accordingly.
