Make sure you use "image" type, not "string" type.

comment UISplitViewController in XCode 6 for iOS 7 app
It looks like the crash on iOS7 is because self.window.rootViewController is returning a UINavigationController, instead of a UISplitViewController.

This happened to me when plugging in a device with no battery charge. Unplug/replug worked fine without restarting Xcode.

comment EXC_BAD_INSTRUCTION with Swift
Might try running under Beta 3, there is now a console message for some of the cases that cause this. In my case, a cocoa method was returning an implicitly unwrapped optional (return type of Type!) which you don't have to check, but still might be nil.

comment Diagnosing EXC_BAD_INSTRUCTION in Swift standard library
In Beta 3, you now get a console message to the effect of "An implicit unwrapped optional had a nil value".

This is pointed out in the answer, but make sure you check each of the files where you have #import X-Swift.h.
