build error on device - missing app

I'm getting this error on a particular project when compiling for my iphone:

/bin/sh -c "\"/Users/davidhoare/Documents/mobile projects/ibandaid_bands/Raoul and The Big Time/build/iphone/build/Raoul and The Big Time.build/Debug-iphonesimulator/Raoul and The Big Time.build/Script-24CA8D03111169070084E2DE.sh\""
[INFO] Compile completed in 23.207 seconds
[ERROR] Build Failed (Missing app at /Users/davidhoare/Documents/mobile projects/ibandaid_bands/Raoul and The Big Time/build/iphone/build/Debug-iphonesimulator/Raoul and The Big Time.app/Raoul and The Big Time). Please see output for more details

I've searched the forums and here's what I've tried, to no avail.

1 - made a new project and copied the resources folder over

2 - deleted the /build/iphone/build folder and edited the project.xconfig file

3 - added var view = Titanium.UI.createView(); to my app file

4 - tried every combination of 3.1, 3.1.1, 3.1.2, 3.2 iphone api, with TI 1.3 api (can't try 1.2 as code is too different)

other info:

  • OSX 10.6.3 with TI 1.2.1

  • new projects and old projects compile and run fine on both simulator and device

  • this project does occasionally run in simulator 1 time after SOME of the fixes above, but upon trying it a second time, no joy.

  • this JUST started happening. I didn't change any system settings/upgrade, etc., nor did I make substantial changes to my code (I'm in the finishing stages of the project, so only minor tweaks for the last week anyway…) though, obviously, SOMETHING must have changed somewhere…

  • here's the titanium debug text when trying a simulator build that also gives the 'missing app' error: http://snipt.org/Onlm

  • this is the build.log when it errors out building for the device: http://snipt.org/Onlo

All the symptoms seem to point to something actually IN my resources folder or in part of the code, so if there are any suggestions regarding what THAT could be about, or if any of the pros out there could shed light on this pretty debilitating error, PLEASE chime in!

And Appcelerator team, as this seems to be a fairly common type of error (many posts about build errors and missing apps) with no definitive answer, is one going to be forthcoming?

Thank you in advance for your help!

  • Try pulling down the very latest source and build of the SDK 1.3.1 from github.

    We've just managed to figure out and fix an issue on building on devices today.

    This also fixes the "because it is not signed" issue.
