How to setup/install 2 iPhone SDKs on one Mac

Tags: , , , , ,

I was trying to install iOS4 (iPhone sdk 4) and also want to have iPhone sdk 3.2. I remembered what I did last year when i want to try iPhone sdk 3.0 beta and continue to submit applications on iPhone sdk 2.2. I created another drive and then install. That work for me but it was not a good solution.

How to setup 2 iPhone SDKs on one Mac is really simple. Yesterday I was trying to install iPhone sdk 4 to my mac but want to continue working with iPhone sdk 3.2. So it was very simple, download the sdk from apple developer site (http://developer.apple.com/iphone) login and then download.

Once its downloaded, simple start the installer and follow what its initial steps but once you reach to "Installation Type" then follow the images below.
