Error trying to Side-load Kodi on an Apple TV 4

Recommended Posts

ady199    7

Hi Guys,

 

I'm trying to side-load Kodi onto an Apple TV 4 using Xcode 7.2.1 and IOS App Signer

 

I've downloaded the Kodi .deb file and and have opened Xcode and created a new project and then used IOS App Signer to re-sign it.........All works great and I get a resigned .ipa file.

 

However, when I try to install it through Xcode - I get the following message:-

App Installation failed

This app contains an app extension with an illegal bundle identifier. App extension bundle identifiers must have a prefix consisting of their containing application's bundle identifier followed by a '.’.

I've tried the same process a number of times and each time I get the same error message.

Can someone please help???? someone said it maybe something to do the the info.plist file - Contents of this are below:-

    <key>UIRequiredDeviceCapabilities</key>
    <array>
        <string>arm64</string>
    </array>
</dict>
</plist>

Thanks in advance

Same here. The old cat and mouse game? It's like we don't own our computer. They control what we can do.

I have same issue. I was able to side load Kodi at first but then I upgrade tvOS to 9.3 and Xcode to 7.3. After upgrading tvOS my Kodi app disappeared. Now I can't side load it

anymore :(
