    Hey, I developed a small TicTacToe app in my hackintosh and I want to transfer it from XCode to my ipod (JBed),
    I tryed searching the web but the only tutorials didn't work for me

    If it's illegal or anything then sorry I didn't know, just want to try it for myself..

    Thanks ahead!

    Hopefully you have your Provisioning Profile setup with your device and then Select the Active SDK from the pulldown menu and then hit the Build and Run button with your device plugged in.

    I don't want to pay 100$ just to pass it to my own ipod..
    Isn't there a way for testers or something like that?

    Hey bud i had the same problem an seeing as no one helped me i figure i should atleast help someone. http://www.alexwhittemore.com/?p=354 On that site itll give you isntructions to binary patch your xcode to allow it to fake codesign

    Important though one thing, you need to make a certificate and call it iPhone Developer using keychain its fairly simple is on the apple site. To actually fake code sign it with this certificate (that costs nothing).

    Edit:mods i got no idea if its legal so just warn me if it is not.

    After compiling using the patched xcode Drag via SSH into your applications and run respring in terminal. Voila your homeade app.

    You can't just SSH it in; the app XCode builds for the simulator is different than the one for iPhone, and the .app won't run unless it's signed.

    How helpful.

    In Cydia, search for ldid. One package should come up, under saurik's repository. Download that, then respring.
    Next, transfer the .app (Assuming it's build for iPhoneOS and not the iPhone Simulator) to /Applications (symlink).
    Next open Terminal and SSH in (Or if on Terminal on iPhoneOS, you won't need to ssh)
    Next type "ldid -S /Applications/YourApp.app/YourApp" and press enter. Done.
