  • I'm getting this error with my own application that worked fine under a previous SDK, but when I upgraded to SDK4.2 with Titanium SDK I get the error. upgrading to Titanium 1.6 made things worse, app won't even compile, will leave comments on that out of this but wanted to say that upgrading wasn't a solution for me. I also tried deleting the application out of Titanium and reimporting it, that didn't help either.

  • Has anyone got any resolutions to this?

    I'm getting the same with the 1.4.2 and 1.4.3 build. If I run the 1.5.0 nightly build it runs ok, but I can't package it using iOS 4.2.

    This is what I'm getting:

    Detected an attempt to call a symbol in system libraries that is not present on the iPhone:
    mmap$UNIX2003 called from function _Z20TCMalloc_SystemAllocmPmm in image Oh Christmas Three.
    If you are encountering this problem running a simulator binary within gdb, make sure you 'set start-with-shell off' first.

    I have a couple of apps I need to update to 4.2 and can't as I have no way producing a working distribution package.

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • I just deleted the whole app, imported it again with source codes and it started to roll.

  • I'm having this problem too, ever since I upgraded to the latest iOS 4.2.

    I've had enough of Appcelerator. Documentation is poor, the staff do not help, no sample examples, it doesn't work at the best of times and when it does its because you're incredibly lucky.

    Screw appcelerator.

    1. Remove titanium.app

    2 - Remove ~/Library/Application Support/Titanium

    3- Reinstall titanium and re-import your projets

    4 - Delete previous builds in your project

    5 - compile, it works !

    hope this helps,
