OK so I made the mistake on jumping on a laptop (Lenovo S10-3T) without actually fully doing my research. Unfortunately, I can't afford another laptop. After realizing certain functions (wifi, graphics, touchscreen) won't work on my laptop (at least for now) I was wondering if theres still hope for IOS development on my hackintosh? The system requirements on apples webpage arent very specific, but basically sound like it should work for me. Before I pay the $100 or whatever it is for a developers license to obtain the IOS SDK, I want to see if it will be worth the trouble.
As of right now, I'm assuming that without graphics drivers, most graphic intensive stuff wont work (3d, acclerated graphics, etc) but I was wondering if I could make simple apps on my hackintosh. Ive never coded before and dont know much about IOS development as it is, but want to learn and hope that maybe I can, using this hackintoshed laptop.
I figure I wont be able to use anything graphic intensive (games, video, etc) but maybe I can develop basic apps withi it, such as ones that don't require anything intensive on graphics.
a few key points on my current setup:
10.6 snow leopard (soon to be 10.6.4)
100+ free HD space
keyboard, mouse, sound works
currently only working at 1024x600 resolution (not sure if IOS SDK works at certain resolution, or gets cut off at mine, etc?) BUT for the most part, OSX works really well, and fast despite not having the graphics acceleration
would the iphone simulator work as well? if not, maybe I could just use the iphone itself to test my apps? (probably not as convenient)
any info on this would be much appreciated. thanks
