    Hey I was just wondering if it is possible to update to 4.0 on windows?
    I would gladly pay the $100 to become a developer, just wondering if I could install it on Windows or if I need Snow Leopard.
    Any work-around?

    That sucks. Thanks anyways
    My sister has a macbook, but she's not running Snow Leopard.
    If I updated on her mac, could I still sync and do everything on my PC?

    You can do it on windows in VMware I would post a rough tutorial but it would violate the forum rules.

    Actually, you don't have to be on a Mac according to some guys.

    Q. Do I have to use a Mac operating system to take advantage of iPhone OS 4.0 beta?
    A. No, you may install iPhone OS 4.0 beta using either the Mac or Windows operating system.
