[!] The platform of the target `Pods` (iOS 5.0) is not compatible with `IDMPhotoBrowser (1.2.6)` which has a minimum requirement of iOS 6.0.
➜  jybb git:(develop) ✗ pod install --force 
[!] Unknown arguments: --force

I know that this pod is not compatible with my project, but I need to force install it, how to do it?

I found the solution:

➜  ~  .cocoapods 
➜  .cocoapods  repos 
➜  repos  master 
➜  master git:(master) IDMPhotoBrowser 
➜  IDMPhotoBrowser git:(master) 1.2.6
➜  1.2.6 git:(master) ls
➜  1.2.6 git:(master) open IDMPhotoBrowser.podspec 
➜  1.2.6 git:(master) 

I changed the s.platform to 5.0.

Instead of modifying the podspec you could try #1376.
