ideviceinstaller can't find Payload dir in zip

Reported by Todd Wright | September 6th, 2012 @ 05:12 PM

When I run ideviceinstaller -U ... -i myapp.ipa it complains:
Unable to locate Payload folder in archive! but unzip -v lists that dir:
0 Stored 0 0% 09-06-12 11:15 00000000 Payload/ This zip works with an older ideviceinstaller build (~4/12 on osx 10.6.8).

The problem seems to be that the zip_get_name finds "Payload/" not "Payload", so an easy fix is to check for a trailing "/" and remove it. I patched my local checkout and this fix worked for me.

I'm running on mac 10.8 w/ xcode 4.4.1, libzip2 0.10-1, and the latest git clone of ideviceinstaller.
