    You can't. You would need to do some hack to run macOSX on virtual PC. It can be done, but it sounded like a pain in the *** so I just bought a macbook

    Dizzy's response is not exactly true. Try "antirez.com/page/iPhone-gcc-guide.HTML".

    You will also need to install openSSH on the iPhone and the following on the pc:
    Bitvise Tunnelier

    Total Commander 7.04a


    I also use Notepad++ on the pc. This allows me to edit the source directly on the iPhone.


    I don't have 10 posts on this forum so not allowed to enter URL's --Stupid-- so you will need to google the above items.

    Good luck

    I know the above solution does not give wysiwyg and smacks of the old DOS command line days of development but it does work.

    Wow, that sounds more complicated and annoying than just doing the virtual machine hack, and then you don't have to jailbreak.

    Not stupid at all. It sucks for you for a little bit, but the bots are out of control and without this it would be a lot worse for everyone. Just make a few good post and soon enough you will be able to post URLs

    The advantage to this method is that all the dev is done directly on the IPhone itself. No hassle with transfering the app to the phone. Don't have to buy any software/hardware if you are a PC user.

    Disadvantage - might break the phone and have to reinstall the ipsw.
