TL/DR: Is there any way to get the latest tvOS SDK, and hack it into my (slightly older) version of XCode, so I can do tvOS development on my machine?
Background: I need to do some tvOS development. My AppleTV is running tvOS 12.3. My Mac is running 10.13.6. The latest version of XCode that will run on macOS 10.13.6 is version Xcode 10.1, and when I try to connect to the AppleTV, Xcode complains that it is not compatible with tvOS 12.3, and tells me I should update.
The last time I tried to update my MacBook Pro beyond macOS 10.13, it failed halfway through, and Time Machine also failed to restore properly. I lost half a week rebuilding my machine, and still run into things that are not quite right (e.g. execute bits inside app bundles). I'm not eager to go through that again.
So I bought an external 2TB Western Digital hard drive, and tried to install Mojave on that. After a day and a half of trying, I give up. It's been nothing but a series of failures.
So, I'm now looking for some way to get the latest tvOS SDK (or at least one compatible with tvOS 12.3), and copy it into my current XCode, so I can get on with development?
