  • App Signing on OSX Yosemite - How To

    I faced the same issue as tons of others here with being unable to sign the 1.8 version of the app using the vBulletin Sign tool on OSX Yosemite.

    There is however a workaround. It requires a bit of patience (I kid, you need a TON of patience), and some basic common sense. I would like to warn you though to do this at your own risk. I have only found a way to get past the pesky code signing error. This might not work for you...

    You will need
    1. A new codesigning tool. Fret not, I found one that works.
    2. An entitlements.plist file. (sample given below, you'll just need your 10char Apple Unique Prefix followed by the App ID)
    3. The .mobileprovision file (the same distribution provisioning profile you used with the vBulletin Signing tool)
    4. Loads of coffee..

    Let's start..

    Step 1 - The Codesigning tool

    https://github.com/maciekish/iReSign - Since the vBulletin tool won't sign it, we'll use something similar. But be aware, you cannot use the app provided in the zip (right side of page - download zip).
    1. You will need to extract it somewhere,
    2. open the "iReSign-Master" folder,
    3. open "iResSign.xcodeproj" in XCode (mine's XCode 6 thanks to Yosemite)
    4. Once opened, click "Command + R" or go to Product Menu and hit "Run"..


    Now you should see an app similar to the vBulletin Signing tool.. Now keep this open and let's move on to step 2.

    Step 2 - The Entitlements.plist file

    This is a sample of an entitlements.plist file
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0">
    <dict>
    
        <key>application-identifier</key>
        <string>QWERTYUIOP.com.internetbrands.39cd38038903</string>
        <key>get-task-allow</key>
        <true/>
        <key>keychain-access-groups</key>
        <array>
            <string>QWERTYUIOP.com.internetbrands.39cd38038903</string>
        </array>
    
    </dict>
    
    </plist>
    There are two things you need to replace in the above example..

    QWERTYUIOP - with - Your App's prefix. Found here - https://developer.apple.com/account/...dleList.action

    com.internetbrands.39cd38038903 - with - Your App ID - Also found here - https://developer.apple.com/account/...dleList.action

    Once you've replaced those, save this file as "entitlements.plist" somewhere.


    Step 3 - Finger Crossing time
    • Go to the iReSign App that we'd run using XCode and browse for the .ipa file. This would be from the latest 1.8.0 zip that you got from the vBulletin Area.
    • Next, Choose the Provisioning Certificate file (the one ending with .mobileprovision) that you used with the vBulletin app.
    • Next, choose the path to the "entitlements.plist" you generated from Step 2
    • Ignore the "change ID" option
    • Choose the "Distribution Certificate" from the dropdown. (vBulletin Devs, why can't the vBulletin Signing tool have the same dropdown, instead of having to copy paste certificate names?)
    • Hit ReSign

    You should now have a resigned .ipa file in the same directory (if all goes well)..

    I have successfully signed and uploaded my ipa for review on the Apple Store using this method. This doesn't mean Apple will jump for joy and approve my app, but hey, at least I'm not stuck on not being able to sign the app..

    Hopefully it works for a few more people, and hope the vBulletin devs take notice and fix the code signing tool using the app I provided as guidance (Commit #23 does the trick guys)..


    Let me know if you need any clarification on any of the steps mentioned above. And before you say it, you're most welcome.

    Thanks for this. I've forwarded this thread to the Mobile Project Managers. I am hoping to get this officially resolved.

        Did you run the app through XCode? If you run the already compiled app in the zip, you'll get the same error. You need to open "iResSign.xcodeproj" in XCode and then run the app (Command + R) or Product => Run

              "Dear developer,
              We have discovered one or more issues with your recent delivery for "LetsGoKings Mobile". To process your delivery, the following issues must be corrected:
              Missing or invalid signature - The bundle 'com.internetbrands.cba340301139' at bundle path 'Payload/cba340301139.app' is not signed using an Apple submission certificate.
              Once these issues have been corrected, you can then redeliver the corrected binary.
              Regards,
              The App Store team"

                Your certificates and keys are properly installed in your Apple Keychain?

                Make sure the dropdown in the signing app is using the right certificate. If you have more than one, ensure to use the distribution certificate.

                  That last error tells us that you're using a different App Identifier. Do re-check the identifier and use the proper one in entitlements.plist.

                  Also make sure to use the proper distribution profile from the dropdown on the iReSign app. As for the missing icons, make sure you check memberr area in vBulletin, and see if you have those two icon sizes mentioned. You might need to re-compile the app via the vBulletin members area, download it and then try..

                  Go to itunesconnect and make sure you have the icon files there under the current version that is awaiting upload.

                I resigned again and tried uploading but got an error saying "Redundant Binary Upload". How can I overwrite the one they have or find a way to upload? Thanks for all of the help, I seem to be gettin errors every step of the way but slowly making my way.

                Update: I changed the version number to 1.8.0.1 and it was uploaded ok. I can't see it in the build part of itunesconnect but it did make it.

                  Do you have the same version that was rejected earlier? See iTunes Connect if the version already exists (1.8.0), and if it does, reject that binary, and you should then see "Read to submit binary" option on the page.
