Ida For Mac

I have no idea if this is the best way to do this (is it really required tocompile QT?) but it works for me. This is also reconstructed from the historyof a few terminal windows, so it's entirely possible I'm forgetting something.

Patches IDA's Pirated Database Detection upon opening IDA Pro on macOS. Since I couldn't find any patches for the macOS Platform, I decided to.

  • IDA SDK 7.5 Develop processor modules, loaders and extensions — extended with the source of 30+ modules and 20+ loaders. Please check out the SDK documentation online (or download the zip file for offline use).
  • Instructions for compiling the IDA 6.95 SDK on macOS 10.12 with Xcode 8 I have no idea if this is the best way to do this (is it really required to compile QT?) but it works for me. This is also reconstructed from the history of a few terminal windows, so it's entirely possible I'm forgetting something.
  • IDA Pro 7.2是目前市面上最棒的静态交互式汇编神器逆向必备工具,由国外高科技公司Hex-Rays制作研发,是全球程序员的在进行静态调试代码的不二之选。全新版本可以支持50多个处理器系列,它可以在各种不同的平台上运行,包括Windows、Linux和Mac OS。同时该应用程序也是反病毒公司和军事组织的首选.
  • IDA features support for more than fifty families of processors and can be run on various platforms, including Windows, Linux and MAC OS X. Bent on analyzing hostile code and researching security.

Start by following the install_linux.txt instructions. You'll need to copylibida.dylib and libida64.dylib into bin in the SDK root. Additionally,that bin directory should be in you PATH. Finally make bin/idamake.plexecutable. All of these is covered in the SDK docs.

The first hurdle you'll run into: the IDA SDK build cannot find the macOS SDK.You can easily fix this with MACSDK=`xcrun --sdk macosx --show-sdk-path` .


For example:

The second hurdle you'll come across is a missing file named If welook in allmake.unx you'll see a reference to it on macOS. I just replacedthis with rsync -u, which someone on StackOverflow said would work. It seemsto. Other people here have described using gnu coreutils from a packagemanager alternatively.

Now you get to build QT. As described here, you need to download and patchQT. However, you also need to apply this patch as well to build on 10.12.Finally, you need to replace code in mkspecs/features/mac/default_pre.prfand configure. Specifically:

needs to be patched to:

Otherwise it incorrectly complains about a lack of valid Xcode license.

Once QT is built (which takes forever), you need to move some files into theappropriate location. The following works, but I'm there must be a better wayto do this, as this is really ugly.

The IDA SDK build requires these four libs:

these three include directories:

and bin from your QT build.

The libs come from your IDA install and can just be linked. However, theheaders I ended up copying from my QT install:lib/Qt{Core,Gui,Widgets}.framework/Versions/5/Headers.

IDA expects these files in /Users/Shared/Qt/5.6.0/{bin,include,lib}.

Lastly, qwindow.pmc64 will fail to compile. This is just missing'$(PREF)QtWidgets.framework/QtWidgets' entry in ADDITIONAL_LIBS around line35 (in the __MAC__ ifdef).

With all this done, you should now be able to compile IDA modules. I hope thissaves someone some time. If you run into problems, I doubt I'll be much helpunless it's something I did and forgot about when writing this up, howeveryou're still welcome to hit me up on twitter or irc (@yrp604, yrp).


Interactive Disassembler
Original author(s)Ilfak Guilfanov
Stable release
Written inC++[2]
Operating systemMicrosoft Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux
Available inEnglish, Russian

The Interactive Disassembler (IDA) is a disassembler for computersoftware which generates assembly languagesource code from machine-executable code. It supports a variety of executable formats for different processors and operating systems. It also can be used as a debugger for Windows PE, Mac OS XMach-O, and LinuxELF executables. A decompiler plug-in for programs compiled with a C/C++compiler is available at extra cost. The latest full version of IDA Pro is commercial, while an earlier and less capable version is available for download free of charge (version 7.0 as of February 2018).[3]

IDA performs automatic code analysis, using cross-references between code sections, knowledge of parameters of API calls, and other information. However, the nature of disassembly precludes total accuracy, and a great deal of human intervention is necessarily required; IDA has interactive functionality to aid in improving the disassembly. A typical IDA user will begin with an automatically generated disassembly listing and then convert sections from code to data and vice versa, rename, annotate, and otherwise add information to the listing, until it becomes clear what it does.


Created as a shareware application by Ilfak Guilfanov, IDA was later sold as a commercial product by DataRescue, a Belgian company, who improved it and sold it under the name IDA Pro. In 2005, Guilfanov founded Hex-Rays to pursue the development of the Hex-Rays Decompiler IDA extension. In January 2008, Hex-Rays assumed the development and support of DataRescue's IDA Pro.[4]


'IDC scripts' make it possible to extend the operation of the disassemble. Some helpful scripts are provided, which can serve as the basis for user written scripts. Most frequently scripts are used for extra modification of the generated code. For example, external symbol tables can be loaded thereby using the function names of the original source code.

Users have created plugins that allow other common scripting languages to be used instead of, or in addition to, IDC. IdaRUB supports Ruby and IDAPython adds support for Python. As of version 5.4, IDAPython (dependent on Python 2.5) comes preinstalled with IDA Pro.
