Known Issues • Code Signing ⁃ Code signing is enforced on the device starting with beta 4 of the iPhone SDK and iPhone OS. This means that your project will need to contain a valid certificate signing identity that resolves to a valid certificate in your keychain. If there is no valid identity in the project, the code will continue to function on the Simulator, but will fail to execute on any device. As mentioned in iPhone SDK Readme (beta 4), will have to wait for PwnageTool to enable bypassing the code signing prior to install apps into the iPhone.
