Help - last step of app store submission fails (upload binary)

Hi there,

I managed to get all the way through the app store configuration steps but have hit a brick wall at the last, after completing the package from Titanium developer, getting the zip file (and renaming appicon.png to Icon.png). the binary upload fails with this mystifying message:

"The binary you uploaded was invalid. The signature was invalid, or it was not signed with an Apple submission certificate."

So unfortunately having made sure there are no spaces in the project and corrected the icon name, I'm now just plain stuck - (help)

  • Just to confirm for others who find this post. Following the instructions below resolved this problem for me. Now lets just hope it gets approved!

    Step 1: Create your first icon, starting at 512 x 512
    Step 2: Use Photoshop, or paint if you must, to resize to 57x57, save this as icon.png
    Step 3: Use photoshop, or paint, to resize the 512 x 512 to 29x29 and save as icon-small.png.

    Straight from the horses mouth:

    57x57 = icon.png
    29x29 = icon-Small.png
    320x480 = Default.png

  • Are you building it with the Distribution (App Store) certificate? This is different than building it with the Developer certificate you use to build it to run on your own phone.

    You get the certificate from the distribution section of the Apple developer's portal.

  • Hi there,

    I just went back and checked and I did/do have a distribution certificate and a distribution provisioning profile set.

  • YES! success!

    Copying 'appicon.png' to 'icon.png' in 'resources/iphone' before packaging sorted it.

    That's my first app (all done in one weekend) with apple for review. Hopefully it won't be too long before it gets checked and if I'm lucky published.

    It's designed to help app developers keep tabs on their ideas and projects. Of course, you're more than welcome to check it over when it comes out.

    Thanks to all the Appcelerites.

    • This is normal. Only when you finally get it in the store will you see the icon in iTunes.
