DTDeviceKit: Could not start house arrest service for app identifier XXX

I'm using Xcode 7.3.1 and executing XCTest via the command-line on my device, "iPhone 1", which is an iPhone 6 running iOS 9.3.5:

xcodebuild \
-scheme Todo \
-project Todo.xcodeproj \
-destination "platform=iOS,name=iPhone 1"\
clean build test


The build succeeded, however it failed after compiling the test files:

Running the tests in Xcode did not succeed either. And it always fails with the errors described in these posts:



I've tried the solutions suggested in the posts (i.e. fix provisioning profile and code signing), but it did not help. Has anyone faced similar problems?

Answer

I was trying to find out if DTDeviceKit was running on my machine, but it did not. My next suspicion was that it could be running on the phone.

After rebooting my phone, it works.
