Invalid device state — NOT a permissions issue


#1

I’m getting the all-too popular “Invalid device state” error, even after applying the permissions fixes that so many others have had success with. I’ve also removed the platforms folder and re-added, clicked “reset content and settings” in the simulator menu, and reinstalled XCode and the command line tools. Still stuck.

An error was encountered processing the command (domain=com.apple.CoreSimulator.SimError, code=163):
Invalid device state
An error was encountered processing the command (domain=com.apple.CoreSimulator.SimError, code=163):
Invalid device state

Sometimes, but not always, the following error shows up:

Error: ENOENT: no such file or directory, stat ‘/Users/cam/Library/Logs/CoreSimulator/E995BA98-A0AF-4ABA-B6E7-E2C7CB5F406A/system.log’

Even more curiously, running the simulator from XCode will successfully launch, but the first angular template I see shows up without any rendering applied (i.e., all the {{ expressions }} are rendered literally, conditionals are not respected, etc).

Further, console.log statements don’t appear in the XCode console despite having installed cordova-plugin-console. I even put a console.log in index.html above all script tags to test whether or not there was an error in executing one of them, and it doesn’t show up.

Here’s the output of the XCode console when I build/run from XCode:

objc[62725]: Class PLBuildVersion is implemented in both /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/iPhoneSimulator.platform/Developer/SDKs/iPhoneSimulator.sdk/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/AssetsLibraryServices.framework/AssetsLibraryServices (0x1100c4910) and /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/iPhoneSimulator.platform/Developer/SDKs/iPhoneSimulator.sdk/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/PhotoLibraryServices.framework/PhotoLibraryServices (0x10fe57210). One of the two will be used. Which one is undefined.
