Yes, rbutil for mac is not build statically.
It uses the so called “Frameworks”, which means the needed Qt librarys should be embedded in the dir.
I dont know why on your system it tries to use the system Qt librarys, and not the embedded ones.

Maybe you could check if those Qt libs really are somewhere in the dir. is dropped into my /Applications directory. I checked the package contents and I can’t see any reference to Qt libraries. I’ve downloaded the same package five times now and the contents are exactly the same every time.

Have I missed a config step?


the package should contain Qt libs under: and similar.

Unfortunatly i dont know whats wrong on your system.

I just tried this on a brand new Macbook (Macbook4,1 10.5.5) and I was able to use Rbutil to install the bootloader on my iPod 4G just fine.

I checked again for the QT libs and they’re definitely not there.

I’m going to try adding them manually later today, but this is definitely a bug of some sort.

I downloaded rbutilqt-v1.0.7.dmg from, mounted it and copied rbutil to my Applications folder. I then attempted to run rbutil and everything worked fine. I checked / and it includes QtCore.framework, QtGui.framework, and QtNetwork.framework.

Can you attach the exact rbutil you tried using on your Macbook? Does an of the program load or does it crash instantly?

I can’t currenty do this, as Finder is not behaving (rbutilqt is greyout out in the the select file dialogue) and I can’t submit forms in Firefox.

Just to let you know that this issue seems to have been resolved with version 1.0.8
