How to rename project in Xcode 3.x

Since no option, we go with manual work.

  1. Copy/rename the folder into new name
  2. Get inside the new folder and rename the .pch and .xcodeproj files
  3. Delete the build folder
  4. Open .xcodeproj file in text editor, like TextMate or TextWrangler. That’s actually a folder, which contains 4 files (you can also right-click and do Show package contents, which will reveal the files)
  5. Open project.pbxproj in text editor and replace all instances of the old name with the new name
  6. Load the project file in XCode, do Build/Clean all targets

Now it should be ready for new build, under new name.
