2. Build your own binary


For running the Frida tools (frida, frida-ls-devices, frida-ps, frida-trace, and frida-discover) you need Python plus a few packages:

pip3 install colorama prompt-toolkit pygments



macOS and iOS

First make a trusted code-signing certificate. You can use the guide at in the section “Creating a certificate”. You can use the name frida-cert instead of gdb-cert if you'd like.

Next export the name of the created certificate to the environment variables MAC_CERTID and IOS_CERTID and run make:

export MAC_CERTID=frida-cert
export IOS_CERTID=frida-cert

To ensure that macOS accepts the newly created certificate, restart the taskgated daemon:

sudo killall taskgated
