Updating extensions for iOS 7
This is an informal collection of advice; feel free to add to it and rearrange.
Dealing with 64bit
20:44:45 <@sbingner> saurik said all tweaks will need to be recompiled to have a 64bit slice
20:45:10 <@sbingner> which is what I've been working on... as soon as substrate is updated I should be able to just type "make" :D
20:49:27 <@sbingner> crash-x, installing rpetrich's fork of theos and making sure it can compile for armv6 with latest xcode on it... and that arm64 will compile except for the mobilesubstrate lib being missing
20:45:32 <@Optimo> dlopen from a variety of avenues, or ...INSERT_LIBRARIES -- all for your own testing of course
20:45:54 <@Optimo> (if you have a 64bit device)
Small notice: Anyone using the badge value of a app icon shouldn't name the variable: " badgeValue" , as UITabBArItem.h has already defined a NSString badgeValue.
Working with Mobile Substrate
21:22:35 < Alcatraz> https://ghostbin.com/paste/zhsx9 Tutorial to Make mobilesubstrate more stable while we wait for an official update.
Add the repo: rpetri.ch/repo
Install the beta Activator
Some Stuff that was broken before you installed the beta activator such as SBSettings and PreferenceLoader should be working now.
If they are not,it is likely another package that still wont work. Or you rebooted your device.
Rebooting the device seems to break mobilesubstrate for whatever reason.
So each time you reboot you have to reinstall mobilesubstrate
21:25:55 <@DHowett> This time, you're all wrong
21:25:59 <@sbingner> oh?
21:26:01 <@DHowett> theos passes -arch flags to the compiler, after all.
21:26:07 < Maximus> ARCH=armv7 and uh
21:26:08 <@sbingner> ^^
21:26:12 < Maximus> ARCHS
21:26:18 <@DHowett> alexzielenski: by default, theos passes armv7 armv7s to the compiler on 6.0+
21:26:39 <@DHowett> alexzielenski: you can override this by setting ARCHS=armv7 arm64 before you include common.mk
21:26:48 < alexzielenski> DHowett: thanks
21:27:10 <@sbingner> DHowett, what I said was wrong because it wasn't complete? :P
21:27:26 < Maximus> i was getting there
21:27:41 <@DHowett> sbingner: well, because it doesn't have anything to do with the compiler, really: this is all a compiler driver problem once you have upgraded xcode
21:27:43 <@sbingner> have time to point me to the right place to add support for foo_FILES_arch to rpetrich's fork? I'm missing the right spot
21:27:52 <@DHowett> instance/rules.mk
21:28:29 < coolstar> screw arm64
21:28:36 < coolstar> the build tools are still not out yet
21:28:36 < coolstar> http://opensource.apple.com/
21:28:37 <@sbingner> ok thanks... I guess I was in the right spot but doing something wrong lol... I'll figure it out
21:28:44 <@DHowett> the proprietary ones are.
21:28:50 <@DHowett> why is everybody focusing on this now?
01:03:36 < therpgitbot> [theos] rpetrich pushed 1 new commit to master: http://git.io/ankV8g
01:03:36 < therpgitbot> theos/master f6ebd79 Ryan Petrich: Workaround bootstrap problems on Xcode 5.x (temporary fix for now)
22:58:21 <%joedj> here's a tip: if you aren't using low-level substrate features like MSHookFunction, you may be able to prepare arm64-ready packages using %config(generator=internal). of course, they won't actually work until substrate can load them
Theos and ldid
12:11:10 < Ge0rges> tets.
12:11:37 < Ge0rges> if anyone here has a tip Still having this problem when installing ldid for theos: https://pastee.org/vasuu
12:28:42 <%joedj> Ge0rges: just put the ldid binary i gave you into theos/bin/ and move on to the next step

Dealing with 32-bit and 64-bit
12:38:15 <%joedj> sbingner: i did find this question (and the response 2 posts down) interesting, i'm not sure what they're talking about: https://www.mikeash.com/pyblog/friday-qa-2013-09-27-arm64-and-you.html#comment-7436311d02c5a55738d1baefa03b0d34
Mobile Substrate tip
14:20:58 < ganbold_> so mobilesubstrate is working partially? after reboot/restart doesn't work
14:29:03 < ac3xx> ganbold_, either just reinstall it through cydia or run this over SSH - /var/lib/dpkg/info/mobilesubstrate.extrainst_ upgrade && killall SpringBoard
Theos and ldid errors
19:02:14 < yoshbu> I've been off the jailbreak train for awhile now. Trying to reinstall theos, getting some build failures when trying to install ldid, anybody know if there's a quick fix?
19:02:52 < yoshbu> like, error: unknown type name '__darwin_intptr_t'
19:02:59 < yoshbu> and, error: unknown type name '__uint32_t'; did you mean 'uint32_t'?
19:05:27 < Alcatraz> are you trying to compile ldid on mac?
19:05:55 < yoshbu> following step 4 of http://iphonedevwiki.net/index.php/Theos/Getting_Started
19:06:10 < Alcatraz> yeah compiling it has been broken for some time
19:06:27 < Alcatraz> has to do with xcode 5
19:06:32 < Alcatraz> pretty sure anyway
19:06:50 < yoshbu> ldid is a dependency of theos though right?
19:07:01 < Alcatraz> yeah. you can ask someone on here for a copy
19:07:23 -!- mindw0rk [[email protected]] has joined #theos
19:08:05 < ac3xx> yoshbu, wget http://ac3xx.com/ldid -O $THEOS/bin/ldid && chmod +x $THEOS/bin/ldid
23:59:59 <%joedj> sbingner: i used 5.1 SDK (xcode 4.4.1) for the armv6 slice, targetting 4.0: https://github.com/joedj/ExchangePolicyCleaner/blob/master/Makefile#L3
Day changed to 24 Dec 2013
00:01:43 <+crash-x> joedj: you can make a fat binary with the armv6 slice targetting 4.0 and the arm64 part targetting ios 7 and achieve support for iOS 4-7?
00:03:53 <+crash-x> joedj: is that project on github been updated for iOS 7 and rpetrich's theos fork?
00:04:09 <%joedj> crash-x: indeed, i believe so, although i think i've only tested down to ios6
00:04:10 <%joedj> crash-x: yes
00:04:22 <+crash-x> thats amazing, thank you!
00:04:25 -!- charliebashford [[email protected]] has quit [Client exited]
00:04:53 <+crash-x> if i wanted to get this working, what would i have to do? install rpetrich's theos fork and then I could just make package it or is there anything else I would have to install or do>
00:07:36 <%joedj> crash-x: there are a few other things like setting THEOS_PLATFORM_SDK_ROOT_armv6 (see the Makefile i just linked), and possibly switching to using %config(generator=internal) in your logos files unless you have an arm64 substrate you can link against (i think theos might be able to bootstrap this for you, but haven't tried)
00:08:04 <%joedj> crash-x: %config(generator=internal) might also be the default with rpetrich's fork, but i prefer to be explicit
