Suppose you have copied your provisioning profile called "iPhone_Development.mobileprovision" to the Library folder and build & go an old iPhone project called "MyApp", and this annoying error appears

(1) cd ~/Library/MobileDevice/Provisioning\ Profiles/

(2) find out the UUID of the provisioning profile
strings iPhone_Development.mobileprovision | grep ".*-.*"

output is like this

(3) copy that UUID between the string tag

(4) close xcode and go to your project
cd ~/Projects/MyApp/MyApp.xcodeproj

(5) Use a text editor to open the project.pbxproj

paste the UUID that you copied from step (3) and put it in both Debug and Release Sections (do multiple finds) for the following line
PROVISIONING_PROFILE = "xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx";

(6) Launch XCode and open the project and build & go again
