I have an app that is loading a large number of pictures from the photo gallery using ALAssetsLibrary API. Initially, it was crashing with a large number of images. I increased a number of trampolines to 4096 with the args:
-aot "nrgctx-trampolines=4096" -aot "nimt-trampolines=4096" -aot "ntrampolines=4096"
Yet, I am still seeing occasional crashes on a library of about 1000 images. Any suggestions? I want the app to be able to handle an unlimited number of images in the library. I can't go one raising the number of trampolines forever.

^ those parameters are not used in recent version of Xamarin.iOS. The number of trampolines are automatically adjusted.
Can you give us a test case (we can supply the images but we need to see your code) ?
Also tell us on about the software version you're using* and the iOS version(s) and devices you used.
* The easiest way to get exact version information is to use the "Xamarin Studio" menu, "About Xamarin Studio" item, "Show Details" button and copy/paste the version informations (you can use the "Copy Information" button).
Nonetheless, before I plugged those parameters, my app was crashing immediately once ran on a phone with about 1000 images. Now, it's only crashing sometimes.
I will work on separating the code around ALAssetsLibrary. I will submit the code in a few days.

Here's the test case as requested https://github.com/asednev/iOS-ImagePicker
What do I need to do to reproduce the crash? I ran the test project on an iPad Air and tapped/ticked all the images shown - is there anything else I need to do?
You need to have 1000+ images on the device. At that point the app will crash without you doing anything. I didn't try iPad Air but the app did crash every single time on on iPhone 4, iPhone 5, and iPhone 5S.
1900 images on an iPad Air did not crash.
I'll try on an older device and see if that changes anything.
4259 images on an iPhone 5 didn't crash either (both of these devices have iOS 7.1 installed).
Can you try profiling with Instruments to see if it's a memory problem? Are you getting memory warnings before the app crashes? It could also be useful to view a crash report from Xcode's Organizer.
Rolf, thank you for your suggestions. I will keep analyzing this issue. I will let you know what I find out. I didn't see crash reports on this issue in a few weeks. I wonder if it could have been an update to Xamarin.iOS that fixed it.
One more thing to clarify - when you ran the app on a phone with 1900 images (or 4259), did you try to actually scroll through these images?
No, I did not try scrolling much.
