At the moment android throws:

System.MissingMethodException: Method 'ImageSource.FromResource' not found.

I'm having the same issue.

I think this was due to a Syncfusion library referencing an old version of Xamarin Forms in their dll. and due to changes in the ImageSource.FromResource method this exception is thrown. They need to update their reference to V2

Hi @FieldstrikeMobile and @Jason Clark

We have already reported this issue in Xamarin in the below thread.

But while updating to Version 2.0 we are facing a "Layout cycle detected exception" in forms which is reported and confirmed as bug in the below thread.

Once this bug is fixed by Xamarin, Syncfusion will update to Version 2. I hope Xamarin is working on this bug and will be fixed soon.
