When debugging my app in Xamarin Studio, it keep crashing with the exception 0x8badf00d which indicates that an application has been terminated by iOS because a watchdog timeout occurred according to this link https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/technotes/tn2151/_index.html However, isn't watchdog supposed to be disabled during debug mode?
The watchdog is disabled when debugging using a native debugger (such as lldb).
Xamarin.iOS does not use lldb, so the watchdog is still in effect.
However we're looking at alternatives so that you can debug your launch sequence with the debugger just like you can in Xcode.
In the meantime a potential workaround is to not do anything until you've returned from the FinishedLaunching method (i.e. start your launch code in a timer event for instance), and debug that instead.
This has been fixed for the next major release.
Could you please provide us your sample application? So that we can verify or reproduce this issue at our end.
