$cordovaFileTransfer.upload error code 1 on iOS but works on Android


I am getting the error code 1 when I try to upload an image from gallery.
I already re-install the “file” and “file-transfer” plugin.

if I click in the image URL the imagem show in the Inspector Web.
I am running in the iOS Simulator and in a real device, same error.

The weird part, works perfectly on Android

I am using:
cordova-plugin-file 3.0.0 "File"
cordova-plugin-file-transfer 1.2.1 "File Transfer"
cordova 5.2.0
ionic 1.5.0

same issue here, any solution for this guys?

Same problem here. Were you guys able to find solution for this?


I didn’t notice that other people replied my post.
well, I found the solution a long time ago after a long time debugging.

As far I remember, I removed the $cordovaCamera.cleanup(); in the function $cordovaCamera.getPicture(options).then(function(imageURI)

I hope this help

hi i have the same problem but it works for android but not for ios :frowning:
