This is after doing xcode-select --install, and when I still got the message about newer command line tools, manually downloading the Maverick command line tools.

Help greatly appreciated.

Get same problem running git, also after running and installing xcode, installing Maverick command line tools.
xcrun: error: invalid active developer path (/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/MacOSX.platform/Developer), missing xcrun at: /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/MacOSX.platform/Developer/usr/bin/xcrun
The /usr/bin folder doesn't exist.

Same issue: xcrun: error: invalid active developer path (/usr/bin), missing xcrun at: /usr/bin/usr/bin/xcrun
I have tried to change the developer path, but it always reports: xcode-select: error: invalid developer directory '/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer' for whatever path I have tried.

Solved after update the Command Line Tool

Manually downloading the tools didn't fix the problem for me. My error message was xcrun: error: invalid active developer path (/usr/bin), missing xcrun at: /usr/bin/usr/bin/xcrun and xcrun was at /usr/bin/scrun. So I typed sudo xcode-select -switch / and now it's working again.

Yes, sudo xcode-select -switch / is the fix. Thanks!

Same issue here. After running sudo xcode-select -switch / I get this error:

xcode-select: error: invalid developer directory '/'

Any idea?

Upgrade CLT first before you change the directory

Ops! Problem solved. I just run the brew doctor and it says:

Warning: Your Xcode is configured with an invalid path.
You should change it to the correct path:
sudo xcode-select -switch /Developer/Applications/Xcode.app

and after running the command, problem solved. Thanks guys!
