Description of Problem:
After iOS update Debugger only connects about 1 out of every 4 attempts when attempting to debug on my iPad

I have to cancel, launch, cancel, launch over and over until it finally works. This happened right after I applied the iOS 7.0.5 update.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Start debugging on a device

Actual Results:
App launches on device but debugger is not connected and eventually errors out with a message that the debugger cannot connect.

Expected Results:
Debugger is attached

How often does this happen? 
Seems to be about 4-5 times in a row before the debugger will actually attach, then I can usually attach again once before it is back to this state.

Do you get an MT1107 (or whatever it is) error in the output window?

I was having this problem last week and a reboot of my iPad solved it. Maybe rebooting your device will help?

Yeah, I rebooted everything, a few times. I uninstalled 7.0.5, installed 7.0.4 and then re-installed 7.0.5 and so far debugger has only failed once. Will see how it does over the next few days and might just chalk it up to jacked up installed the first time.

Hi Albert,

since you didn't post new comments. I'm assuming this is not happening anymore, or is it?

Thank you,

I forgot I opened a bug. 

It doesn't seem to be happening as often now, only once in a while. When it does happen I reboot the device and that appears to correct it.
