Xcode 9 crash during uploading app to App Store

In my project the Xcode 9 crashes during uploading to App Store (or exporting to disk, it does not matter). I have found that it may be caused by cocoapods or some kind of external frameworks bug, because on my other projects which do not use cocoapods this bug does not happen. However why I created post about it here on stackoverflow is the question if anybody has a temporary solution to solve this issue?

Unfortunately it is not known when it will be fixed by Apple or cocapods…so…every help would be welcomed.
I have already reported this bug to Apple with the (shortened) log below.

  • Does App Store reject submission if NSAllowsArbitraryLoads set to YES?
  • Any Way to Run a project with Pod files Where Cocoa-pods is not Installed?
  • What goes into your .gitignore if you're using CocoaPods?
  • Minimum Xcode version to upload to App store (As on February 2016)
  • ITMS - 90179 Invalid Code Signing / ITMS - 90209 Invalid Segment Alignment
  • Invalid Provisioning Profile- Missing Code-Signing Certificate

    2 Solutions Collect From Internet About “Xcode 9 crash during uploading app to App Store”

    After struggling with Xcode 9 for many days and having tried so many things icluding some mentioned here. I ended up

    1. Download and install Xcode 8.3.3 ( Always keep the older version, lesson for life )
    2. Archive the app with Xcode 9
    3. Open Xcode 8.3.3, open Organizer and submit the app

    This works. Good luck.

    Update: Xcode 9.0.1 and Xcode 9.1 beta doesn’t fix the issue.

    I just solved the problem.

    I have the same problem with Xcode Version 9.0.1 (9A1004).

    First of all, check your problem is exactly same as mine.

    1. To do this, open Terminal and put ‘xattr’ command and Enter.
    2. If you can see kinda ‘Permission denied’ error message, fortunately you are just same as mine.
    3. Now you can solve the problem by putting this one line command.

    sudo chown -R $USER:$(id -g) /Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/protobuf-3.2.0-py2.7.egg/EGG-INFO/

    so you can do ‘Upload to Appstore’ or ‘Export IPA’.
