Binary Ninja uses Qt 6.4 under an LGPLv3 license which requires that we host the original sources used to build Qt for our application along with instructions on how that source may be re-built and can replace the version of Qt shipped with Binary Ninja.
Please note that we offer no support for running Binary Ninja with modified Qt libraries.
- Follow the installation requirements on the Building Qt 6 from Git page.
- Download the Qt 6.4.1 tarball from binary.ninja. The Qt code has a patch applied but is ABI compatible with the official Qt release.
- Next, build Qt with the qt-build repository. Alternatively, build Qt using the aforementioned instructions.
- On macOS, you will need to disable the code-signing signature since it would otherwise prevent changes to binaries or shared libraries. We recommend a tool such as unsign.
- Finally, replace the built libraries:
- On macOS, replace the
QtWidgets.frameworkfolders inside of
- On Windows, replace the
- On Linux, replace the
libQt6XcbQpa.so.6files wherever Binary Ninja was extracted.
- On macOS, replace the
