    I finally got Xcode and the iPhone SDK and am amazed by the versatility of the system, even though I've hardly ever programmed in my life before. I've built a teeny-tiny tester app that runs in the Simulator, but I'd like to try it on my iPhone. I've given my Mac a self-signed certificate, [REDACTED] set up a SignerIdentity in my Info.plist, and set provision statements in the iPhone SDK Platform's Info.plist. No dice; I always get an error when trying to compile for iPhone OS ("Code Sign error: The identity 'iPhone Developer' doesn't match any identity in any profile"). How should I, or can I, go about doing this.

    EDIT: On second thought, reading some other forums, I do know that I can pay for the iPhone Developer Program at any time. I want to, believe me, I do. I simply cannot right now; my finances will not accomodate that. Scoff all you want (I'm ashamed, too), I just can't right now. This is just a stopgap measure to do some testing and maybe even develop a jailbreak-only app in the future.

    I feel same way too. I always show any applications that I made to people in the devices without bringing laptop with me. I will look this thread closely.

    Option 1) Pay the $99.
    Option 2) Search this forum. This has been recovered repeatedly. There is no [REDACTED] required.

    [EDIT: the easiest way:]
    Step 1) Build the app.
    Step 2) Put the app on your device using SSH, SCP, or whatever.
    Step 3) Pseudosign the app.


    It's what I do for all my Jailbroken apps. I also know many other developers who do this as well.
