I get the following error in the Application Output
error MT1107: Application failed to launch
This then causes the iPad to reboot and lock at the Apple loading screen, this means the iPad needs to be restored from a backup.
I have tried uninstalling xcode and xamarin.studio but this still happens. I also cannot debug in the iPad simulator, I get the following error.
"The simulated application quit.
Click Relaunch to try again."
This used to work on the old version of monotouch and now is completely broken! Please help!
Can you share the project with us? or a subset of it that reproduce the issue ?
Can you add the version numbers you're using ?
The easiest way to get exact version information is to use the "Xamarin Studio" menu, "About Xamarin Studio" item, "Show Details" button and copy/paste the version informations (you can use the "Copy Information" button).
The version is 4.0.3 (build 13)
XCode version 4.6.1
Has anyone else reported this?
That's only the XS version, we need all version numbers (you can get them with the instructions from comment #1).
If you can duplicate this issue could you also attach the .app to the bug report (you can mark it private) so we might analyze what's going wrong. Thanks.

Some tool added an empty entry inside your Info.plist which is causing this issue (or seems iOS really dislike that).
Did you only use Xamarin Studio for developing the application ? or recall manually editing that file ?
Thanks, that fixed it working on the iPad, very strange that it properly broke the whole iPad and needed a restore!
It however still doesn't work on the simulator, although I have created a test project and that doesn't work either. Is that more of a problem with xcode or xamarin?
^ this entry is the root problem. For some reason iOS can't digest it and
starts a reboot loop.
AFAIK this entry could only have been written when using the Visual Studio addin (not Xamarin Studio). Did you use VS to develop (in part or completely) your application ?
> very strange that it properly broke the whole iPad and needed a restore!
Yes, I filled the a with Apple (#13601057) because iOS should really not brick itself in such cases.
> It however still doesn't work on the simulator,
We have not see any effect on the simulator. Something else could be wrong. Did you try to reset it ?
e.g. the "Reset Content and Settings..." in the iOS Simulator menu
Be aware that it will remove everything (app and data) from the simulator.
As well as fixing the VS UI not to write bad values into the plist, we should make sure that the XS and VS build code strip out existing bad values when building the plist.
Hi I forgot to say that this issue started happening after I imported the project into VS 2012.
I have also tried your recommendations re: simulator but not joy.
Does that happen from VS ? XS ? or both ?
Can you run another application/sample, from VS or XS, on the simulator ? or is only your own application affected ?
Newer versions of the tools should not be generating this empty entry anymore.
