    How can I edit a source code from an app and make it with my apps name? I tried just changing the original name in every file but i got errors. How can I port all the codes, images, all that into my own Xcode project? Thanks.

    Open Source does NOT mean you can just rename the project, edit some lines and release it like you wrote it all.

    Agreed, but he wants to port a couple parts of that project, into his.

    He states you can use it as long as you put his name on it. Does this really matter people? If I can use it or not was not the question. Anyone with some real answers please? I finished some things to the app but I cant finish it all without renaming the files.
