Resigning Unity built macOS app results in "code signature data out of place" out of place error



Repro steps:

1. Get a project with one or more native plugins;
2. Built it for macOS standalone;
3. Try to resign it using "codesign --force --sign - --preserve-metadata=identifier,entitlements,flags --timestamp=none --deep 'path/to/'"
4. Observe the error:

/Applications/ fatal error: file not in an order that can be processed (code signature data out of place): /Users/User/Desktop/

Fixed in 2021.2.0a12, 2021.1.3f1 and 2020.3.5f1.

    I was previously aware of this other related issue:

    However, the interaction of these two issues means that it is currently impossible to ship a Unity 2020.3 macOS build!

    Seeing something very similar. Specifically on Debug macOS (Intel only) builds I see:

    /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/usr/bin/codesign_allocate: fatal error: file not in an order that can be processed (code signature data out of place): [PROJECT PATH]/[APP NAME].app/Contents/Frameworks/UnityPlayer.dylib

    I don't see this for Release macOS (Intel only) builds

    Though this is listed as "Fixed in 2020.3.x" this fix is NOT included in 2020.3.0, 2020.3.1, 2020.3.2, or 2020.3.3 (the latest so far).

    We are getting the same issue.

    In Unity 2030.3.2f1 and also tried in the
    Unity 2021.1.2f1

    Is the generated bundle being created with support for both the require MacOS architectures?
    x86_64 and arm64?
