Sample project to reproduce the issue

MONO date time format for Finnish (fi-FI) is incorrect. The time separator is ':' instead of '.' . This causes Mono DateFormat to not be in sync with the native one (iOS).
Once we change the time separator to be '.' ( So that it's in Sync with iOS) we get parsing exceptions because MONO's DateTime parser doesn't support having the same character for date separator and time separator.

As per comment 2,I have checked  this issue with latest mono master  MonoFramework-MDK- having MD5 f1017f92732e63852b57c4dc0b495ef5 and with the help of  attached project in bug description.

please read my comments first before reopening the bug report.

The issue was fixed in Mono master and proposed for SR1. The attached repro uses XI therefore you'd need Mono master based XI for your repro to work. Master XI is based on Mono 4.3.1 which does not included the fix.
Comment 7 Marek Safar 2015-11-26 04:02:40 UTC
As I wrote earlier there is no XI which includes the fix yet
Comment 8 Arpit Jha 2015-12-15 06:53:25 UTC
I have checked this issue with latest master mono MonoFramework-MDK- + monotouch-  and its working fine.

Now able to build and deploy attached project without any exception.
