Some information Papers

http://reverse.put.as/papers/

 

for the Tools i forgot to add:

 

Hopper Dissambler (2.8.1) which is for Win/MacOS and Linux.

and it seems to be the best alternative on MacOS, if you cant offer IDA Pro.

 

http://www.hopperapp.com/download.html

 

Patcher on MacOS similar to dup on windows is the iPatcher 2.7.1

(took me a bit to find the last version! - just google it)

 

happy reversing.

as alternative to OTX you can also use IDA Pro 6.1 and crossover it into MAC - youll be still able debug Mac apps.


for IDA google is your friend.


IDA isnt able to easy save a patched file, but you can use simply a Hex Editor like WinHex or something.

Hello Artic. Thanks for your tutorials.

Im reading and download some tools. But I can't find that site at :

 

 

The binary version of OTX doesn't support 64bit binaries, so you should download the version from the

SVN repository. The information is available here: http://otx.osxninja.com/subinfo.html
