Ti Developer started crashing when 'Run on Device' or 'Distribute'

Ti has been running great - I love it - my app is built and up on App Store.

Today Ti developer started crashing when I try to run my app in device or distribute (iPhone). Was running fine at end of day yesterday - today crashes with..
'Titanium Developer appears to have encountered a fatal error and cannot continue.'

Any ideas?

(cannot search Q&A today get server timeout, so asking directly)

  • Hi,

    I just read your post and tried installing a new Ti app on my iPhone and it all worked fine.


    On a side note, out of interest, what's your app called in iTunes? ;)

  • My issue is that my development environment crashes - not the app in the phone. Ti Developer (on Mac) dies.
    When I select 'Run on Device' then click on 'Install' - Developer dies.
    This is a totally new (today) development. I figure something in my development environment has gotten corrupted and I am hoping someone can tell me how to fix it.

  • I rebooted my Mac (twice) and it seems ok now.
    Gee, I thought these Macs were suppose to be solid as rocks - urban myth me thinks ;-)

  • I haven't seen that happen personally but have heard of it happening to others. iTunes likes to freeze when I install a new app. Not sure which is better. LOL

    Try this process and see if it works any better for you, in my experience so far this way seems to work the best:

    • Make sure you're iPhone is not connected to your computer.
    • Double-click your provisioning file and it should open the Xcode Organizer.
    • Drag and drop your provisioning profile from Finder to the Provisioning Profiles area in Xcode Organizer.
    • Add your provisioning profile in Titanium Developer and click Install Now (if the button is disabled, click the edit tab, then back to Test & Package and Run on Device).

    Hopefully that'll all work and your app will be installed into iTunes. Then connect your iPhone, make sure your new app is selected to be synced on the app tab, and try syncing it.

    EDIT: Hehehe I just saw that rebooting worked for you, glad you're okay now. :)
