iPhone Crash Logs – symbolicate

Whatever » Blog Archive » iPhone Crash Logs.

You’ll want to run symbolicate which is best put in an easy to find place…

I copied it to /usr/local/bin/ so that I can run it whenever I want without trying to remember its original location (you may prefer a symbolic link):
$ sudo cp /Developer/Platforms/iPhoneOS.platform/Developer/Library/Xcode/Plug-ins/iPhoneRemoteDevice.xcodeplugin/Contents/Resources/symbolicatecrash /usr/local/bin/

Also, you’ll want the dSYM package for that build around to run agains…

To add symbols to the crash log you need the dSYM file generated by the linker when you compiled your application for AppStore. In other words, when you build for AppStore you should keep the dSYM package in a safe place backed up by Time Machine. This is very important. You should keep a copy of the dSYM for each version of your application ever shipped. If you have the package, translating code offsets to function names with line numbers has never been easier:

$ symbolicatecrash report.crash MobileLines.app.dSYM > report-with-symbols.crash
