Forum post is specifically about Android I believe.
For me creating a new project thismorning allowed breakpointing. I also noticed new projects Debug|iPhone linker setting was SDK Assemblies only. Not sure if that is usually that by default but changing it around did not seem to help.

Two of my existing projects however, app just closes when it hits a breakpoint.

is a forum post that I put my crashlog in if that helps at all.

Could you attach the project which exhibits the problem or a small testcase ?
Comment 5 Brad Moore 2014-09-27 02:48:21 UTC
Turns out removing TestFlight from my app (not just the TestFlight.SetReportCrashes(true); line, but the TestFlight.TakeOff("key"); in particular).

Can repeat it again and again by uncommenting that one line and readding it. Don't think I had this issue in the past, seems to be new to iOS8. Have been using TestFlight 3.0.2 SDK for quite a while now, but was very recent this issue had started happening.
Comment 6 Zoltan Varga 2014-09-27 15:15:40 UTC
Its possible that TestFlight is interfering with the debugger, since the two use similar os fuctionality.

We have not received a test case. If you are still experiencing this issue please provide all the requested information and re-open the bug report. Thanks!
