Iphone – Code Sign error: The identity ‘iPhone Developer: x Xxxxx’ doesn’t match any identity in any profile


I get this build error when I build my iPhone project to run on my device:

 **Code Sign error: The identity 'iPhone Developer: x Xxxxx' doesn't match any identity in any profile**

My development code signing certificate expired so I got a new one. On my first attempt I created a new CSR and got the message above. The second time I reused my original CSR and got the same result. Another strange thing is the new certificate has an extra string with brackets after my name in the "common name" when I look at it using Keychain Access like this:

iPhone Developer: x Xxxxx **(3BDUAJYC9Q)**

`My original certificate didn't have that.

I have Xcode Version 3.1.3
Component versions
Xcode IDE: 1191.0
Xcode Core: 1192.0
ToolSupport: 1186.0

Does anyone know how to solve this?

Best Solution

  1. Right Click the Project (eg. x.xcodeproject) and select Show Package Content
  2. Open project.pbxproj with TextEdit
  3. Search for all "CODE_SIGN_IDENTITY[sdk=iphoneos*]" and set it to "CODE_SIGN_IDENTITY[sdk=iphonesos*]" = "iPhone Developer";
  4. Search for "PROVISIONING_PROFILE[sdk=iphoneos*]" and set it to "PROVISIONING_PROFILE[sdk=iphoneos*]" = "";
  5. Save the file
  6. Reopen the Xcode project or select "Read from Disk" resulting from Xcode the prompt.
  7. This Worked for me. I hope it works for you too.
