Cannot change executable permission for the application

Posted on: January 18, 2013

So you finally built your app and it is copying over to the device all the files — and “cannot change executable permission for the application”??

You can check the console output in the Organizer window for your device — but the log looks quite mystic to me — most useful information is it says “installation failed”.

Here comes the solution: remove all the apps with the same bundle identifier from your device. And it will run. On my phone, I have installed our production version so once I removed that app, everything is cool. Well not exactly running. But running without any xcode/phonegap/development certificates/code signing/provisioning profile problems 😀
