After updating to latest VS 2017(15.2 26430.4) on May 10, 2017 we can no longer connect with the debugger on multiple different machines. Can not connect to the x86 HAXM emulator or a hardware device.
*We receive the following output:*

Changing ports didn't help. Reopening.
Note: Comment #1 and Comment #2 are incorrect.
Scenario: Xamarin.Android project in which `$(Optimize)` is not set
for the Debug configuration. Load project within VS 2017 and attempt
Result: app crashes on startup, debugger cannot connect.
`adb logcat` contains:
F monodroid: No assemblies found in '(null)' or '<unavailable>'. Assuming this is part of Fast Deployment. Exiting...
What's happening is that the Debug configuration app was bundling the
*Release* `libmonodroid.so`, as verified by comparing file sizes; the
deployed `libmonodroid.so` was 161244 bytes, which is the same as the
installed `libmono-android.release.so` file.
Why was a Debug configuration deployment using the Release runtime?
Because of [xamarin-android/1e0e0834], which migrated
`Xamarin.Android.Common.targets` to use `$(Optimize)` instead of the
kludge of other properties which was used previously. Commit 1e0e0834
was comparing `$(Optimize)` against False, but many existing projects
don't set `$(Optimize)` for the Debug Configuration *at all*, meaning
it was comparing the empty string to `False`, which failed, which
prompted `<BuildApk/>` to behave as if the Release runtime were
requested, which was *not* the case here.
Bump to xamarin-android/fd86ab04 which corrects the `$(Optimize)`
comparison, which will allow Debug deployment to work as intended.
I can confirm that adding the following to the debug configuration of my csproj fixed this issue.
## Bookkeeping note
Cross-reference to related developercommunity item:
Verified this issue on the build VS 2017
220.127.116.118 and 18.104.22.1683

Have verified the scenario
1-Created an Xamarin Forms app (PCL & Shared)/Andorid single view app , and Verified debugger is getting hit.
2-Also verified after creating any Xamarin.forms project , the default values is set as <Optimize>false</Optimize> in csproj.
Hence marking this issue as verified and Fixed.
The verification attempts in Comment 9 and Comment 10 would not cover the scenario described in this bug report.
To test the scenario described in this bug report, it would be necessary to attempt debugging in a project configuration where the `<Optimize>` settings is _not present at all_. The publicly viewable commit in Comment 4 is not a change in the template projects, but a change in the build logic.
