Description Manish Sinha 2016-07-22 16:34:43 UTC
Steps to reproduce

1. Connect an iPhone 6S with iOS 9.1
2. Create an iOS app with target 9.1
3. Set a breakpoint at AppDelegate.cs FinishedLaunching method
4. Deploy to device

Expected: App is deployed to device with breakpoint set and the breakpoint is hit
Actual: The deployment crashes if a breakpoint is set. Deployment works if breakpoint is removed

Can you check whenever disabling the 'Enable incremental builds' option in Project Options/iOS Build, then rebuilding fixes the problem ?
Comment 8 Manish Sinha 2016-07-25 16:03:18 UTC
I have tried it with disabling incremental builds and even tried disabled incremental builds with all three linker options.

I can still reproduce this issue.
Comment 9 Zoltan Varga 2016-07-25 19:04:49 UTC
It looks like its reproducible for some people or on some machines, but not on others. So this might be a platform/os specific problem, or a just a problem which happens randomly.
Comment 10 Zoltan Varga 2016-07-25 19:14:23 UTC
Could somebody add 'Zoltan's Iphone6' to their provisioning profile, and upload the .app directory built with that profile ?
Comment 12 Manish Sinha 2016-07-26 18:33:55 UTC
Can reproduce it on tvOS 9.2 device too

Fixed in mono master 941573a76499373f962edb28b0ddb40234b6b2f6. Will backport to 4.6. Thanks for all the help.

This build will hopefully have the fix:

Verified the fix on C8 branch builds
