  • How to use apps with iPhone simulator?

    i've XCode installed and iPhone Simulator. I've compiled the apps with resign.sh etc... I've copied the .app file in this directory

    iPhonesimulator.platform/Developer/SDKs/iPhoneSimulator4.0.sdk/Applications/

    the icon appear correctly in my simulator screen, but when I click on it apps don't start.

    I was talking with a user in a ticket about being able to use your iPhone app before it is available in the iTunes store. He wrote these (thank you, Steve) and he may have shared them here somewhere, but I don't know where so I'll just respost them:

    * Login to your iOS Provisioning Portal > Devices > Add Device > enter your Phones UID

    to get your phones UID connect to iTunes in the Phone Summery page click on serial number and while change to UID.

    * go to Provisioning > Distribution tab > New Profile > choose Ad Hoc as the distribution method. > select your app from App ID dropdown > under devices choose the devices you want to be able to install the app on. (if not selected here wont work on your phone)

    Name profile: I named mine: ZZZ Mobile AdHoc

    * switch tabs and go back to distribution tab to make the new profile active and now download the profile...

    * Now resign the app the normal way but using this distribution profile

    * Open iTunes > Apps > drag and drop the newly resigned app the and adhoc provision profile into iTunes > connect your iPhone and sync
    I followed those instructions and my app is now installed on my iPod.

          Sorry, I missed that part. I do not know as I do not have the iPhone simulator installed.

            No, it doesn't work since the architecture are different: arm vs i386

                You signed using adhoc provisioning profile and not app store one right?

                    no identity found <-- that indicates your signing certificate isnt installed or is not installed correctly... I responded to your PM
