Has anyone done any iPhone development on a hackintosh? Any limitations?

Last time I checked Hackintoshes don't offer any "limitations" on developing for iPhone. Xcode works the same exact way it does on my Macbook Pro as it does on my desktop Hackintosh. Don't know of any known problems on it as I make programs on my Hac with Xcode and QT and they work fine on the MB Pro so you should have no problems deving apps on a Hackintosh if you're worrying about it.

You can also develop on a Vmware based installation. The simulator works fine.

i installed Xcode 3.2.5 with SDK 4.2 but just after installation i couldn't boot, for that i needed to delete all 3-4 CHUD kext files in System/Library/Extensions after that everythings fine...........BTW i used 10.6.4 on 64bit patched kernel......

Because you've used a patched kernel, if you use P4 with a bootloader made by Pcj

You can use Apple Vanilla kernel on your CPU Pentium 4, so you don't need to delete CHUD

On my system it works fine, I'm trying to earn enough to get a real Mac but the Hackintosh is doing well, if you on an AMD device there are steps you need to take and some limitations, but not many. But on my Intel Pentium Dual Core it works great, a bit slow sometimes but it is a lower spec than even the Mac Mini

I know quite a lot of people practicing professional iPhone and iPad development on hackintoshes...I have never heard from them about any limitations or difficulties. Well, of course they all are good specialists, so they know how to adjust everything properly so that they could work well in such conditions. But as for me, I'd better get Mac for these matters :lol:

Actually the way in which Hackintoshes are becoming such a plug and play with newer versions of OS X it might actually be a smarter move money wise to go with one as you get more performance to price if you were say to pair a 980x cpu for your processor needs compared to shelling out a good deal of money on a high end Mac Pro it would be more viable to go the Hackintosh route.

I do this with a SL VM. As long as you can run xCode (so Leopard most likely and beyond), you should be fine. Pretty soon, I think xCode 3.x won't be good enough though, which means you are going to have to have SL.

(Hint: ESXi 5 runs OS X VMs using tips from these very forums)

can you tell me which are this steps for AMD processors?

You're probably better off PM'ing him since it's been more than a year since that post.

However, since this is a top google hit for amd hackintosh iphone development, then I think the answer would be great publicly. I have not found anything else about it on google :(

Any limitations I could think of would be related to the AMD architecture that is different from intel. However, if the processor supports full sse3, sse4 instruction sets with virtualization technology, it shouldn't be a problem to run the sdk. Running cpu-z and googling the resulting processor code will probably give you at least part of the answer we seek.
