    I've created a new app with bundle identifier com.domainname.blahblahblah. When I put the full bundle identifier, I only get a generic white icon for my app when I load into my iphone or the simulators. When I delete the com.domainname and only use blahblahblah then the correct icon shows up. I've already resized and double checked the icon names and it is all correct since it shows up correctly when I remove the com.domainname. I can't upload my app into the app store unless I have the com.domainname so I'm stuck right now. Anyone have a similar issue or know what's causing this?

    Some possible solutions:

    1. Drag and drop the icon from Finder into the Xcode Resources folder.

    2. Delete icon and try again.

    3. Do a clean and rebuild to make sure you've got the newest version on your device.

    4. Check the case of your filenames to make sure they match.

    5. Change the Bundle Display Name and then shane it back again. Apparently sometimes Xcode picks up other changes at the same time.

    I tried all that already. I've isolated the problem. When my bundle identifier is com.domainname.blahblahblah, the icon becomes white default icon. When I take out the com.domainname and ONLY use blahblahblah then it works and the icons show up properly but I can't submit it because that's not my bundle id.

    I never used com.domainname before because I never had a domain name but now I've registered a website, I thought it would be good practice to add in the com.domainname but once I add that in, the icon doesn't show.
