How To Crack [PORTABLE] MPLAB XC8 C Compiler For PIC And AVR Microcontrollers



How to Crack MPLAB XC8 C Compiler for PIC and AVR Microcontrollers




MPLAB XC8 is a popular C compiler for 8-bit PIC and AVR microcontrollers. It offers many features and optimizations to help you develop efficient and reliable embedded applications. However, the compiler is not free and requires a license to unlock the full potential of the PRO mode. If you don't want to pay for the license, you can try to crack the compiler using some tricks and tools.




How to Crack MPLAB XC8 C Compiler for PIC and AVR Microcontrollers



In this article, we will show you how to crack MPLAB XC8 C compiler for PIC and AVR microcontrollers using a patcher and a hex editor. This method is based on the work of some hackers who have shared their findings on various forums and websites. We do not take any responsibility for the legality or morality of this action, and we advise you to use it at your own risk.


Step 1: Download and Install MPLAB XC8 C Compiler




The first step is to download and install the latest version of MPLAB XC8 C compiler from the official website of Microchip Technology. You can choose the version that suits your operating system (Windows, Linux, or macOS). You can also download the compiler from this link: https://www.microchip.com/en-us/education/developer-help/learn-tools-software/mcu-mpu/compilers/xc8


After downloading the installer, run it and follow the instructions to complete the installation. You can choose the default settings or customize them according to your preferences. Make sure you remember the installation directory of the compiler, as you will need it later.


Step 2: Download and Run the Patcher




The next step is to download and run a patcher that will modify some files of the compiler to bypass the license check. The patcher we will use is called "XC8 v2.x.x Patcher" and it was created by a hacker named "Catcatcat". You can download it from this link: https://www.sonsivri.to/forum/index.php?topic=45707.175


After downloading the patcher, unzip it and run it as administrator. You will see a window like this:


Click on the "Browse" button and select the installation directory of MPLAB XC8 C compiler. Then click on the "Patch" button and wait for a few seconds until you see a message saying "Patch done!". This means that the patcher has successfully modified some files of the compiler.


Step 3: Edit the xc.h File with a Hex Editor




The final step is to edit a file called "xc.h" with a hex editor. This file is located in the "include" folder of the compiler installation directory. For example, if you installed the compiler in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microchip\xc8\v2.32", then the file path would be "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microchip\xc8\v2.32\include\xc.h". You can use any hex editor you like, such as HxD, Hex Workshop, or WinHex.


Open the xc.h file with your hex editor and search for the following hex string:


0F 85 0E 01 00 00


This string corresponds to a conditional jump instruction that checks if the license is valid or not. We need to change this instruction to an unconditional jump, so that it always skips the license check. To do this, we need to replace the first two bytes (0F 85) with 90 90, which are NOP instructions that do nothing. The result should look like this:


90 90 0E 01 00 00


Save the file and close your hex editor. You have now cracked MPLAB XC8 C compiler for PIC and AVR microcontrollers.


Conclusion




In this article, we have shown you how to crack MPLAB XC8 C compiler for PIC and AVR microcontrollers using a patcher and a hex editor. This method should work for any version of MPLAB XC8 C compiler from v 04f6b60f66
