View Full Version : Problem with preparing for ad-hoc distribution - using ST 2, Xcode 4.3.3, Phonegap1.9

Having a very strange issue preparing a Sencha Touch app for distribution (ad-hoc) using Phonegap 1.9 and undertaking the process using Xcode.

If I create a Cordova project, and generate a base (ie. freshly generated) ST2 app, then drop the www contents into the Xcode www folder, I can build fine.

However, when I prepare for ad-hoc distribution using Xcode organiser, it fails with "Codesign operation failed - check that the identity you selected is valid".

I know there are no issues with the certs/profiles, as a plain ObjC or Phonegap app is fine, the error only appears when I am including the Sencha Touch code.

Having done a bit of googling, this can be fixed by renaming the following folders .

sdk/command/src/module/generate/App/app/ -> sdk/command/src/module/generate/App/_app/
/sdk/src/device/device/ -> /sdk/src/device/_device/

Anyone else had this error - and found a better workaround! I am unsure of the wider impact of renaming these folders on the code. Should I change the "requires" keys in the classes that use the classes in these folders?

Just had the same problem. No better solution from my part though. Epic fail to Apple for that bug, I have to wonder how it could even appear in the first place.
