I am not sure that this issue relative to XI.
I tried to verify this issue: https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=23666 and observed that I can't enable custom keyboard on my devices (iPhone6–64bit and iPadMini 1gen–32bit)
Steps to reproduce:
* download sample https://github.com/xamarin/monotouch-samples/tree/master/ios8/SingleWordKeyboard
* start debug
* Go to Setting > General > Keyboards > Add New Keyboard
There is no sample's custom keyboard under "Third-party keyboards". Proof:
About XS: https://gist.github.com/rzaitov/a6fe79e5a66572cee3a7
I tried this test case with XCode 6.2 betta 5 [6.2 6C121] and with XCode 6.3 betta 2 [6.3 6D532l] – result is the same.
I checked that Plugins folder exists with *.appex file within bundle
Also build output
Also I tried to create new app with keyboard extension from XS template and observed the same result – there is no custom keyboard under "third-party keyboards"
* What iOS version are the device(s) running ?
* Can you log at the device logs while running settings ? you should see iOS looking for the plist (minimally) and that might give some clues about what's going on
Device log from iPhone6 (iOS 8.1.3):
* App installed https://gist.github.com/rzaitov/1d27cd129bdc2c138cea#file-gistfile1-txt-L37
* Strange assertion failure on app and Setting launch https://gist.github.com/rzaitov/1d27cd129bdc2c138cea#file-gistfile1-txt-L95-L101
There was no looking for the plist ((
@Paola can you check if the sample is based on an old (broken?) template ? and update it. If it's not template based then there's an issue that msbuild tests should have caught (and worth investigating).
So, if you add another keyboard extension (Add New Project -> iOS -> Custom Keyboard Extension) and then add it as a new reference to the Host App, the new extension will be shown on the Add New Extension dialogue but (after a Clean All) not the old one.
I will be working towards updating the template for this sample.
Commit d0f53da67d37defc86603472244a63cea733e1a4 on monotouch-samples fixes this :)
this fix doesn't work for me ((( I am not able to add custom keyboard via settings.
Also according to you comment:
> and then add it as a new reference to the Host App
this change looks strange for me:
Why did you remove reference to extension project?
I tried to reference keyboard extension back, but this didn't help
Hey! I tested this (brand new checkout of monotouch-samples) and i can add the Keyboard in General -> Keyboards -> Add new keyboard in both simulator and device... using iOS 8.2 and 8.3

I figure out the problem.
First of all I reverted yours changes in SingleWordKeyboard.csproj file, because Host app MUST have ref to Extension project.
Then I set deployment target to 8.1 for Extension project (minimum possible). This was the issue because if deployment target is not set XS picks maximum value (8.4 at this point) this means that Extension will be discarded by iOS below 8.4 (e.g. I have 8.3).
As an example of this issue. Here is an device log from my phone:
-[MIInstaller performInstallationWithError:]: Installing <MIInstallableBundle ID=com.your-company.SingleWordKeyboard; Version=1.0, ShortVersion=1.0>
-[MIBundle isApplicableToCurrentOSVersionWithError:]: 368: The system version is lower than the minimum OS version specified for bundle at /private/var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.mobile.installd.staging/temp.s3PU5g/extracted/SingleWordKeyboard.app/PlugIns/com.your-company.SingleWordKeyboard.KeyboardExtension.appex. Have 8.3; need 8.4
-[MIBundle pluginKitBundlesWithError:]: Ignoring plugin at /private/var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.mobile.installd.staging/temp.s3PU5g/extracted/SingleWordKeyboard.app/PlugIns/com.your-company.SingleWordKeyboard.KeyboardExtension.appex because it doesn't work on this OS version
closing the issue
As per comment 14, I am marking this issue as Verified-Fixed.
