Titanium Developer (1.2.1) Install error

I'm trying to install a app on my iPhone 4. I have completed all the steps with certificates and so forth but when clicking on the "Install now" button i get a error saying "Install error" and that's it. When open the project in xCode I can't choose the device in the listbox in the upper left corner. Is there anyone that have a idea what to do ?
I use the latest iPhone SDK 4.1 and Titianium SDK

    Hi there,

    My Titanium environment was running properly, but when I add a new device by provisioning it, I've got the same problem/error message.
    What happens: by adding a new device, XCode, create a new profile in your environment. So, then previous profile was deleted.
    Solution: on the tab Test&Package, goto Select and Provisioning Profile and browse to the new uuid file created by Xcode on
    /Users/{your username}/Library/MobileDevice/Provisioning Profiles and select it.
    Done!. install on the device and enjoy.


    ps. this issue was previously discussed on:

  • I'm having the same issue. Re-built the cert and provisioning profile from scratch, still get the useless "Install Error" message (is that the best that Appcelerator can come up with?). When I try to install from XCode, I also cannot see the Device listed.

    I realize that Appcelerator is trying to make their money from premium support and so leaves the Community to its own devices (or lack thereof), but it would sure be nice if they showed a modicum of interest in the issues we are encountering. Most of the posts have not been answered for weeks and months. Not acceptable…

  • Hi,
    i´ve got the same problem, but with SDK 4.2 Provisioning Profile and Development Cert are ok, but I cant choose device in xcode. Titanium just produces "Install Error". For testing I just used the empty Tap1/Tap2 App, in Simulator everything works fine.
    I already looked in the project settings of xcode, but its set to "latest ios(4.2) and to arm6/arm/ which works fine with projects originally produced in xcode, however not in Titanium.
    What can I do, without learning Objective C… ?

  • I got the error dialog:

    Install Error
     Error: Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/Library/Application Support/Titanium/mobilesdk/osx/1.5.1/iphone/builder.py", line 599, in main
        provisioning_profile = read_provisioning_profile(pp,o)
      File "/Library/Application Support/Titanium/mobilesdk/osx/1.5.1/iphone/builder.py", line 212, in read_provisioning_profile
        f = open(f,'rb').read()

    I dropped my provisioning profile onto the itunes icon.
    Synced my phone so that the Profile was on my phone, and then renamed my profile in:
    /Users/<my-username>/Library/MobileDevice/Provisioning Profiles/name-of-file.mobileprovision
    to what it was looking for. In my example, it was:

    Mine built after this. Just sharing! If this fixes your problem, up vote this post.
