Looks like the last release was a long time ago, and only tested on Mac OS X v10.3. Even this had some compatibility problems. What version of OS X are you trying to run? – Cody Gray Jan 11 '11 at 10:12
Current version. Is this possible? – bharath Jan 11 '11 at 10:18

PearPC is a PowerPC emulator. Apple switched their Mac hardware to Intel/x86 architecture in 2006, the latest Mac OS X release for PowerPC is 10.4 or 10.5.

As you tagged your question iphone I assume you want to develop software for it. There's no way to do this using PearPC.

Use a virtualization software, or install directly on the hardware. There are enough related guides on the web and questions on this site.
