You can still use our solution with one additional step - manual patching via gdb. In that case you won't even need SIMBL. This method also works on 10.6 without SIMBL at all.
Just add the following code to the ~/.gdbinit:
define xcodecolors attach Xcode p (char)[[NSBundle bundleWithPath:@"~/Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins/XcodeColors.bundle"] load] detach endthen run Xcode, then gdb from the Terminal and type xcodecolors command in the gdb:
~ $ gdb -q (gdb) xcodecolors Attaching to process ... Reading symbols for shared libraries ... .. done 0x00007fff84d242fa in mach_msg_trap () $1 = 1 '\001' (gdb) quitThis step is required only once after Xcode start.
