I have update monotouch to 184.108.40.206:
but it occus MT2002 error when building the project into iphone device:
Error MT2002: Failed to resolve "MonoTouch.Foundation.NSString MonoTouch.CoreFoundation.CFRunLoop::get_ModeDefault()" reference from "monotouch, Version=0.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=84e04ff9cfb79065" (MT2002)
I have rebuild the 3rd library.
btw, It's ok when run in the simulator.
this occurs when use a compiled .dll
MonoTouch Base Class Libraries (BCM) provides a superset of the Silverlight profile (2.1) with some 4.0 additions. So adding pre-compiled binaries from another framework can requires some types/methods that are not present in MonoTouch BCL.
The solution is to rebuild all your .dll against the BCL assemblies that are shipped with MonoTouch. That will ensure the compiler will only uses symbols that are available.
Why does it works on the iOS simulator ?
That's because the JIT is used. Since it's compiled Just In Time you might never reach the missing symbols so it can work until you hit the missing code (and get a runtime error).
On the other hand when you use the device (or the linker) then all the symbols are loaded (and compiled for AOT). Anything missing will be found ahead of time so you get an build-time error like the one above.
