Error: Failed to start an Appium session, err was: Error: Command failed: /bin/sh/ -C ideviceinstaller -u myUDID -i mybundlename

Hi ,

I am getting the error :Failed to start an Appium session, err was: Error: Command failed: /bin/sh/ -C ideviceinstaller -u myUDID -i mybundlename

Using

  • iOS Platform
  • Appium version: 1.4.8
  • Real Device -iPhone 5c
  • Coding tests using Java
  • OSX 10.10.4

I install ideviceinstaller manually with brew and then as a preprocessing step, uninstall and reinstall our aut before starting appium.

I’m sure others use the stock appium ideviceinstaller. Check that your iPa/app is listed correctly in your device capabilities

What is aut?
Do you know if ideviceinstaller is mandatory ?

Thanks :slight_smile:
