The following error messages appears while restoring an app (.ipa):
- "Could not inspect the application package"
This error message appears when you try to restore an incomplete .ipa file. The file might contain data, but not the actual application.
You need to restore a different .ipa file either downloaded from the App Store, or extracted from a different source device.
