i was wondering if it were possible to create an iphone emulator for pc or mac?
There is one for mac, it comes with XCode...
could you jailbreak it lol
It's not an emulator, though, it's a simulator.
It's the same code of the iPhone, but built for Intel instead of ARM.
And it's already jailbroken, as in, you can execute unsigned code.
Then what would you consider an emulator?
There needs to be an iPhone simulator for Windows. Please Register or Log in to view images

You don't "consider" it. It's defined.
To make the iPhone Simulator that is included in the iPhone SDK an emulator it would have to be able so emulate an ARM core and then run all the ARM compiled code. This is the main difference.
Just send an e-mail to Apple and ask them for the source code of the iPhone OS, and then port it to Windows.
Hilarious. I'd like to see an Apple Engineer see this and thinking: "Eh.. No! (?...)".
The thing with this type of stuff is that a lot people just don't know anything about it. It's the same with reading Apple is evil because they don't port their development tools to Windows.
i know theres one for mac, but 2 problems. 1 i dont have a mac. 2 it only runs code that you have compiled. i understand it doesnt actually run any apps that u get from appstore or whatever.
also, if possible, i hope it can also emulate going online as there are heaps of apps that depends on this.
