Note that you can install B4i-Bridge and then change to a different provisioning profile if you need an explicit id.
Thank for suggestion.
Erel, I see that App explicit Id have push flagged but App with asterisk no... Any suggestion how enable this?

Erel I have tried to do what your instructions say multiple times, and I think my old brain is missing something.

I get the following when I try to create the bridge, does any of this ring a bell? Thanks! What it boils down to is a "No identity found" error.

Hi,

I have installed the compilling server on my mac and the various certificates. But when I go to compile/install the b4i bridge it is not compilling (following the video exactly). The last part of the output is:

/Users/sean/UploadedProjects/b4i_default/build/B4iProject.build/Release-iphoneos/B4iProject.build/Objects-normal/armv7/main.o
/Users/sean/UploadedProjects/b4i_default/B4iProject/main.m:11:9: fatal error: 'iDesigner.h' file not found
#import "iDesigner.h"
^
1 error generated.

Error: ** BUILD FAILED **

The following build commands failed:
CompileC build/B4iProject.build/Release-iphoneos/B4iProject.build/Objects-normal/armv7/main.o B4iProject/main.m normal armv7 objective-c com.apple.compilers.llvm.clang.1_0.compiler
(1 failure)

this I presume is a missing dependency at compile time. I have the latest xcode on the mac which I presume is 6, not sure if it might even be a later version.

Seems like the Libs folder is missing on your Mac computer. There should be a folder named Libs in the folder of B4iBuildServer.jar. All the libraries including iDesigner.h should be there.
Thanks Erel that was the problem. I setup a desktop link to the build server to save typing every time, which did start it ok, but it did not see the libs folder. Got around it by aliasing a script which changes into the correct folder first then runs the server. In Windows and even debian I can make a desktop shortcut and tell it the working folder, OSX has yet to learn this. Just got it all working, another brilliant effort on your part. Thanks, my first app took about 20 seconds to make.

Erel,
I installed the bridge at the device, he starts listening on his IP, I connect device IP on B4I, when I compile my project, it creates an icon on the phone, open the icon, and again starts waiting for the debugger on his IP, run again my project and it complains that Rapid Debugger failed to connect to device.

I reboot the device with no luck

Compile & Debug outputs:
Parsing code. 0.04
Compiling code. 0.41
Compiling debugger engine code. 3.70
Building Xcode project 0.05
Sending data to remote compiler. 2.97
Compilation completed successfully.
Make sure that B4i-Bridge is started (10.8.24.123).
Manually launch the app after installation.

** The bridge is OK, as I can connect with the designer to the device with no problems at all

I have launched the program on the device, it says the IP address and Waiting for IDE. Althow the IDE IP points to the device, it keeps waiting forever.

Have restarted both, mi machine and the device with no luck

As I just posted, I have launched the program, it apears a waiting icon with the device IP and a message that says, Wainting for the IDE to connect

Using iOS 7.1.2

Can you explain in detail what you have done.
After loading a program:
- I run in the IDE menu Tools / Build Server / Build Basic4i-Bridge App.
- Run the program

- Then you should see the message asking for installation.

OK, Fresh from zero
Build B4I Bridge
Navigate to the URL that the Compile tells me (63.135.170.51:51041/xxx) on the device
Click install APP on the device.

It asks to install my program, install, click to open, the program opens and it says on the screen that is waiting for the IDE to connect, which never happens.

The IDE at the status bar says: Trying to connect to device (10.8.24.123).

The IDE never connects to the IDE for debugging
