Downgrading XCode

With the release of XCode 4 into the App Store, we thought it was finally safe to put it on our primary development machine. Sadly, after 3 days and many crashes, we are taking it off. It's cool and all, but there are some projects that it works with fine and others that it just won't run for long with out crashing....and crashing.

We're reinstalled a few times and done all of the tips and tricks recommended after our Google searching. Things had gotten better but certain client projects still just crashed and crashed and crashed.

All of our client code is in Kiln or github so we will be able to reconstruct. It's just that losing the hours of productivity isn't billable.

We are trying the nuclear option for XCode 4 of typing
sudo /Developer/Library/uninstall-devtools --mode=all
. If that doesn't work, it's back to XCode 3.2 for a while.
