check if the udid of your phone changed.
thanks for reply!
i don't know if it changed... it is a 40 digit hex number... and i didn't write it down... i will now!
but i dont think changing a USB cable would do that (the only 'event' that has happened such that before it worked and after it doesn't... if not just a coincidence)...
changing the cable wouldn't do that but changing the cable wouldn't cause this problem.
on the other hand, while the apple people were messing with your phone maybe they changed something that caused your udid to change. your udid is tied to your provisioning profile.
check the apple developers portal to see the udid you used with your provisioning profile.
ok... i checked the phone UDID via iTunes, and it is the same as the one used with my provisioning portal (checked at apple developers portal)...
it seems odd that this error would come up if there was a bad certification... but errors are strange...
what should i try next?
i have 'figured out' the problem... it is a known bug in Adobe Flash Pro CS6... on the page with 'known issues' (http://helpx.adobe.com/en/flash-player/release-note/fp_114_air_34_release_notes.html#known _issues) it says:
"[iOS] On some content, Installing an .ipa file with AIR 3.4 occasionally fails with Installation Error: PackageExtractionFailed(3220974)"
what the hell do they mean my 'some content'... ? i'm thinknig they mean sometimes it just doesn't work for some builds...
so anyway... i took an old archived version of my app that uploaded before, and tried uploading it again... and it worked!
the difference between the one that uploads and the one that doesn't is i believe 1 line of code!
but i have no idea why the one that won't upload is not uploading... the SWF and Windows versions work just fine... it simulates as an AIR for iOS on my computer just fine... oh well...
what's the problematic line of code?
thanks for your help!
i don't know if it was the new line of code.... i editted the old one (that uploads) and added that one line, and it now uploads fine... i relaized i had made some other changes as well (very minor)... and made those changes too... and it still uploads!
maybe somehow the project file got corrupted... good thing this happened after only one minor bug fix.... i think i'll start uploading to phone a lot to test from now on... so i did learn something!
