I am using Phonegap CLI 3.1 and XCode5. I want to generate the release build for iPhone Application through command line, I have valid distribution certificate and mobile provisioning profile. I want to generate the release build totally through command and don't want to use XCode GUI or Phonegap Build. I have tried too much with xcodebuild, xcrun and even corodva build command but none of them provide me the release build file (either in .app format or .ipa).
Method 1 (Use xcodebuild)
a) xcodebuild -project MyApp.xcodeproj -alltargets -sdk iphoneos7.0 PROVISIONING_PROFILE="PROFILE_UUID.mobileprovision" -configuration Release
** BUILD FAILED **
The following build commands failed:
CompileC build/MyApp.build/Release-iphoneos/MyApp.build/Objects-normal/armv7/AppDelegate.o MyApp/Classes/AppDelegate.m normal armv7 objective-c com.apple.compilers.llvm.clang.1_0.compiler

Method 2 (Use corodova build and xcrun to sign the app)
a) cordova build ios -release
Compiling app on platform "ios" via command "/Users/Macuser/Desktop/MyApp/platforms/ios/cordova/build" --release Platform "ios" compiled successfully.
b) xcrun -sdk iphoneos PackageApplication -v "build/Release-iphoneos/MyApp.app" -o "build/Release-iphoneos/MyApp.ipa" --sign "iPhone Distribution: NAME (ID)" --embed "PROFILE_UUID.mobileprovision"
