If you don't want to pay the $99 developers fee but want to test your app on a device there are ways to patch Xcode and your project. However these are frequently complicated and difficult to follow. I have just found http://jailcoder.com/ and it's a very simple guide and you can test on your device in under a minute, it's that easy.

I can speak from experience using Lion 10.7.4 and the latest Xcode which I believe is 4.5.2 -> testing on iPod 3rd Gen 5.1.1.

REQUIREMENTS

  • Snow Leopard or Lion, possibly work with ML - untested
  • Xcode 3.x or 4.x
  • Jailbroken iOS device with AppSync installed
  • JailCoder

I am not affiliated with the company who have released this program, just a developer wanting to pass on some knowledge!

Hello there !

Your link is currently broken, the actual one is http://oneiros.altervista.org/jailcoder/

I have tested it with my jailbroken iPhone (iOS 5.0.1) on the latest Xcode version (4.6.2), and it runs like a charm ! Both on my legit MacBook Pro and Hackintosh (both on Lion 10.7.5) and it works like a charm, very simple to use.
