Description Ian 2015-01-29 12:37:36 UTC
When trying to build from XStudio Mac to an iPad device I get this strange error "Wrong Droid Error":


/Library/Frameworks/Xamarin.iOS.framework/Versions/Current/bin/mtouch -sdkroot "/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer" -installdev "/Users/ivink/Desktop/Main/CSI/CSI.iOS/bin/iPhone/Debug/CSIiOS.app" "--devname=CFI QA Team iPad"
Please ensure your device is connected...

error MT1006: Could not install the application '/Users/ivink/Desktop/Main/CSI/CSI.iOS/bin/iPhone/Debug/CSIiOS.app' 
on the device CFI QA Team iPad: Wrong Droid Error (error: 0xe8000028).
The application was terminated by a signal: SIGHUP

This error code comes from Apple's libraries (kAMDWrongDroidError), and generally indicates some problem between the Mac and the device (outside of Xamarin.iOS' control).

Try rebooting the device, the Mac, and replugging the cables and see if that helps.

Also check if you can deploy using Xcode (my guess is that the problem will affect Xcode as well).
