Description Marek Safar 2014-08-12 11:57:51 UTC
When setting -debug==casts for android using `adb shell setprop debug.mono.runtime_args --debug=casts' mono runtime does not initialize

W/MonoDroid-Debugger( 6236): passing '--debug=casts' as extra arguments to the runtime.
I/ActivityManager( 1000): Process App1.App1 (pid 6236) has died.
Comment 1 Zoltan Varga 2014-08-12 20:48:01 UTC
--debug=casts is not supported on android because of insufficient TLS support. We print an error message and exit, but the message is not displayed because android nullroutes stdout/stderr.
Comment 2 Rodrigo Kumpera 2014-08-25 23:45:27 UTC
We won't implement it until we get decent TLS support on Android.
