Hi,

Using both latest version Mac OS 10.12.6 and Xcode 8.3.3

Following your tutorial closely, there was no "fix issue" button to click.

Thanks.

The tutorial was made with an older version of xcode and I think the new version automatically tries to fix signing issues without presenting the button. If you see the "Provisioning Profile Xcode Managed Profile" line in the Signing section, click the info icon to see the status of your provisioning profile, you might be good to go. Been a while since I had to start from scratch so I could be wrong about how the initial setup goes now.

Thank you for your input.

I thought about your explanation too. You could be correct.

But when I keyed in my valid Apple developer ID, the problem remained until I changed the name of the bundle identifier to the same as my Apple ID email address. Then it worked . It does not seem logical. Nevertheless I progressed into the next steps.

However at the ios app singer window, the provisioning profile is empty( no file to select)

Please advise.Thanks.

We may be bumping up to the limits of my knowledge of the inner workings of ios app signer, but I do remember having to quit and restart ios app signer to get it to find a newly created profile.

BTW, the bundle identifier issue is somewhat explained here: https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid...pid2431277

Lots of good info in this thread if you can figure out the right search terms for your issue.

Thank you so much for your help.

But there is too much work involved after getting all error messages and compatibility issues with different version of os,xcode, ios signer.

And I just heard it lasts for only 7 days.

I will turn to a android device.

Good luck guys.

Hey guys. For the life of me, I can't get this to work.

In iOS App Signer, I can't select anything under my provisioning profile. All that appears is re-sign only and custom.
I've managed to get this to work a while ago, but this time I've tried everything and can't get it to show the provisioning profile. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Personally how I do it is I create a provisioning profile on my apple developer account and download it. Then I copy that provisioning profile to my device and when I open the app signer I pick custom and select that provisioning profile. Have never had an issue doing that.

Sorry for the noob question, Kavy, but where would I do that?

Thanks

edit: just found where and tried it, but it says "invalid provisioning profile" ?

edit 2: just updated ios app signer and seems to be working. fingers crossed.

Hi there,
When I tried to install Kodi on iOS 10.3.2 and 10.3.3 via Cydia Impactor 0.9.41 and 0.9.42, the following error info popped out:

./plist.hpp:201
not PLIST_STRING
<dict>
<key>CFBundleIdentifier</key>
<string>org.xbmc.kodi-ios</string>
</dict>
[Status]

Can I just ignore it?
