    I followed the instructions here:

    http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-19512_7-10115416-233.html

    to install iphone sdk on power pc using pacifist.

    However after the installation of the files , the mac used md5 checksum to validate the files and files were found not to pass. I then cancelled the validation. However I could not find the SDK programs that were installed in the mac.

    How do I delete the 5gb of stuff that was installed as I can'tfind them anywhere?

    I then proceed to attempt one of the comments instructions on that page:

    1. Make the iPhone SDK.dmg read/write-able with Disk Utility using convert -> to read/write.
    2. Mount the R/W dmg.
    3. You need to delete some unneccessary file so that you can modify the installer config file, because the image is completely full. I choose the PDF in the root of the dmg.
    4. Modify /Volumes/iPhone SDK/iPhone SDK.mpkg/Contents/iPhoneSDK.dist :
    - Line 71 ( in function agreedToSLA() ) - modify "return false;" to "return true;"
    - Line 81 ( in function SDKPresent() ) - modify "return false;" to "return true;"

    but I was unable to attempt part 4 as I couldn't find iPhoneSDK.dist to modify.

    Any help would be soo cool :)

    There is another instruction set at:
    http://apokalypsesoftware.com/blog/2009/03/23/130/

    Your 5GB might be in the /Developer folder on your hard drive.

    Isn't it interesting how the majority of the time Apple says PPC won't work, they are lying? And Apple-fans keep saying it 'saves Apple time' to not support PPC, and yet there it is, working just fine the whole time?

    Thanks for that thread, I don't know how to do the following:

    4. Copy the mounted volume to a hard drive.
    5. Navigate to iPhone SDK.mpkg/Contents/iPhoneSDK.dist

    I can't find iPhone SDK.mpkg

    all the extensions in the mounted(by that I assume you mean the hard drive icon that appears when you double click on the .dmg) iphone sdk end with pkg

    iPhone SDK.mpkg

    in spotlight but I can't in finder.

    I found iphone Sdk.mpkg in spotlight (but not finder) after I mounted the drive but when I double click on iphone Sdk.mpkg in spotlight it opens a dialoge saying


    This package contains a program that determines if the software can be installed. Are you sure you want to continue?


    what do I do now?

    iphone Sdk.mpkg is in location

    /volumes/iphone sdk/

    how do I get to

    Contents/iPhoneSDK.dist


    to modify as described in the OP?

    Why don't you buy an intel mini. $419 refurb from Apple.

    Here’s how you can install the iPhone SDK for 2.2.1 on a Mac running at least MOX 10.5.5:

    1. Ensure you have at least 6 gigs of disk space available. If you have tried to install the iPhone SDK on the target volume before, it may state an upgrade will be performed instead of an install. Sadly, the only solution I currently have for this situation is to uninstall Xcode using /Library/Developer/3.1/uninstall-devtools.
    2. Download the SDK disk image.
    3. Mount the image by double-clicking it.
    4. Copy the mounted volume to a hard drive.


    Maybye its because I don't have an external hard drive

    For step 4 I copied the mounted drive to the desktop and now we have a folder icon.

    thats a lot 4 me just to install a sdk

    Instead of double-clicking the iPhoneSDK.mpkg, right-click it and choose "Show Package Contents."
