Broken project: either doesn't load, or builds EVERYTHING PINK

    My main project of mine has just broken and I have absolutely zero clue why.

    First it just failed to load at all: as soon as I selected it from the load screen, just nothing happened: no "this is loading, this is updating" little window: nothing at all.

    After many useless tries, including re-downloading the project from scratch, I re-installed the Unity Editor.

    After re-installing, the project loaded, and it worked in-editor. But in builds, everything was pink. Just a pink screen and that's it. No sound. However behind the pinkness, I think the game was still somewhat responsive. Difficult to say, since it was just pink.

    Re-importing the assets did nothing.

    Now it again completely fails to load, and that's it.

    Editor-prev.log ends like this:

    ----- Total AssetImport time: 0.081435s, AssetImport time: 0.048692s, Asset hashing: 0.000000s [0 B, 0.000000 mb/s]

    (Filename: /Users/builduser/buildslave/unity/build/Runtime/Core/Callbacks/CallbackArray.h Line: 192)

    Checking for leaked weakptr:
    Found no leaked weakptrs.

    Editor.log ends like this instead:

    Loading native library: UnityEditor.iOS.Native at /Applications/Unity 2017.1.0/PlaybackEngines/iOSSupport/UnityEditor.iOS.Native.dylib
    [usbmuxd] Start listen thread

    Begin MonoManager ReloadAssembly
    Shutting down Remote Indexer
    Task failed: Downloader Task
    Cancelling tasks, domain is going down

    I'm using 2017.1.1.

    I also tried with 2017.1.0 but nothing relevant changes: I select the project, I get (as expected) the "non matching editor window", and as soon as I hit "continue" it just hangs.

    === Update 1 ===

    I've read someone suggesting to start offline. Indeed when I tried to work offline the project started.
    I don't know if that is the reason, but it's pretty odd if it is, since it happens only with that project.

    === Update 2 ===

    When it does work (i.e. it's pink, instead of just not starting), I get these logs among the others:

    <i>OSXPlayer(Gnaw)</i> Unsupported: 'Hidden/VideoDecodeOSX' - Pass 'FLIP_RGBARECT_TO_RGBA' has no vertex shader

    <i>OSXPlayer(Gnaw)</i> Unsupported: 'Hidden/VideoDecodeOSX' - Setting to default shader.

    Obviously zero clue what they are talking about: I don't do shaders, and I certainly didn't modify anything related to them today.

    === === === ===

    I am completely clueless about what to do now, I'm stuck and I can't work any more.

    In a test scene I got this:

    Seriously, what's going on?!?

    This comment finally solved it.

    Why I had this problem also when re-downloading the project from scratch, I still have zero clue.
