[How to] Turn off ARC for Selected Files or 3rd Party Libraries in XCode 4.2

This is probably the first time I’m writing something related to code development. With the introduction of iOS 5, Apple released the next version of its IDE – XCode 4.2.

XCode 4.2 came with many major changes. Developers used to XCode 4 or XCode 3 will face some problems initially. The most common problem faced will be with Automatic Reference Counting and its compliance with 3rd party libraries.

Your project will simply fail to compile if you have ARC on with 3rd party libraries not updated to use ARC.
