React JSX Question

Print: Entry, ":CFBundleIdentifier", Does Not Exist

When I run

react-native run-ios
the build succeeds but I get the error below. I've checked all over the place but nothing seems to be working. Using
sudo
in front of the command does not help either. I am using Xcode 7.3, react-native-cli: 0.2.0, react-native: 0.24.1, node v5.11.0.

=== BUILD TARGET mobileTests OF PROJECT mobile WITH CONFIGURATION Release ===

Answer

My problem was actually that my build was in Release mode instead of Debug mode. As a result, the identifier was pointing to something that was not in existence. I changed the build type and it ended up working.
