I have a hybrid app written using Xcode5.02 and Mobile SDK as of last November (DF13!) which installs fine on iOS6 and iOS7 devices. It won't install on iSO8 devices. I'm distributing it as an adhoc distribution with an apple developer Distribution provisioning profile.
Based on the StackOverflow answer here I've already added the 'display-image' and 'full-size-image' images which are apparently mandatory in iOS8, to the plist manifest. That helped a little, as the install got almost to the end (icon appeared on desktop) before dying with "Unable to Download App. [app name] could not be installed at this time." Without those 2 images in the plist I got that result straight away.
So my question is, do I have to repackage the app using Xcode6 to get it to install on iOS8? I've already downloaded Xcode6.01 and it failed to build the app against iPhone6 simulator, as it complains about "missing required architecture x86_64" for a whole pack of .a files. It does build the app against iPhone5 simulator.
- Has anyone got a mobile sdk app to build against iPhone6? I remember reading that there's no 64bit support yet but I can't remember where.
- If I do build the app in Xcode6 / for iOS8 can it still be installed on iOS7 devices? Or do I need to maintain 2 builds?
Updates: I have started a new project using Xcode 6.01, MobileSDK 2.3.0 and forceios 2.3.0 and imported the files from the old project. It runs, authenticates with OAuth but doesn't start. The simulator loads index.html but nothing happens after that. It's based on the AccountEditor sample, which I notice has some changes since MobileSDK 2.1.0
Account editor (which does run properly) logfile says

but mine stops at

so no "should start load..."
Any idea what I'm missing? Also helpful would be a way to build a standalone copy of the AccountEditor app, and I'd start rebuilding mine by copying my files into it.
