Sidekick freezes whenever I connect to my iPhone over USB via Sidekick’s ‘Run on Device’.

Here are the details:

  • I running on Windows.
  • The mobile device is an iPhone8
  • Cloud build works and the app does successfully install/update on the iPhone before Sidekick freezes.
  • I have not been able to use Livesync due to Sidekick freezing.
  • I’m using the latest Nativescript/Sidekick/Node.
    Node: v8.11.4
    Nativescript: v4.2.2
    Sidekick: 1.12.0-v.2018.8.14.2 (latest)
  • I tried completely removing Node & Nativescript & Sidekick and reinstalling.
  • I’ve done builds on 4 different apps - all created via Sidekick templates. Sidekick freezes for all of them during
  • I am able to activate the Chrome Debug tool and interact with the app on the device. For example, I can change label text in Chrome and the app will update live on the iPhone.
  • The Sidekick console shows the log below whenever it connects to the iPhone. At “Refreshing application…”, Sidekick remains unresponsive.
