Caveat: I've never used the iPhone SDK - what follows is my best interpretation of the errors/warnings.

It looks like the "HelloWorld" volume is a read-only volume, or your user account doesn't have access to write to this location. What type of media is mounted at /Volumes/HelloWorld? Have you tried saving the project to your desktop or documents folder instead?

I ran into this same problem when trying to use the .dmg file. For some reason if I unzipped the .zip and ran from that folder it worked.
