iPad app not installing on device with Titanium 1.2.1, sdk 1.4 and os 4.0.2

I keep getting an install error from Titanium 1.2.1 whenever I try to install my App on the device. This is very strange because it stopped working all of a sudden.

I tried deleting my build folder, creating a new provisioning file, deleting titanium completely, deleting the project, creating a new one and replacing the contents and no luck.

What could be the possible reasons for having an install error, it works perfectly on the simulator!

Please help, thanks.

    I solved the issue, it seems like either Titanium Developer 1.2.1 or the SDK 1.4 is messing up the name of provisioning file it installs in the 'Library/MobileDevice/Provisioning Profiles' folder, the app is looking for a randomly generated name, when it is supposed to look for the one I named how I wanted, so what I ended up doing is get the one I know should've worked renamed it to what titanium was trying to find (see the build log for this) and put it in the 'Library/MobileDevice/Provisioning Profiles' folder.

    This solved my issue and now I'm able to install on my device.

    Im hoping this issue gets resolved in the next release.

  • hi,

    had the same issue, lost a lot of time, so here is how i solved it:

    deleted every certificate and profile on mac & xcode & ipad & titanium:

    recreated certificates
    updated dev and prov profiles
    created new project
    imported new profiles
    boom, all here

    a lot trouble, a lot of time wasted, and no "logic" reason behind this issue. Anyway, solved…

  • I have the same issue right now. First I created a project for iphone, I tried 1.2.0, it can install in itune and my ipad, but it is not work in the simulator, the app installed in my ipad crash when start, too.

    Then I tried 1.4.0, it show install error when I press install now button.

    Then I created another project, set it for ipad, I complie as 1.4.0. it work great!!

    So, I think the problem is 1.4.0 iphone app running on ipad device….
