Description Devaim 2012-08-27 10:23:25 UTC
I had this exception when i used *.ToList()

'System.Linq.jvm.Runner:GetDelegate<T,bool> ()' while running with --aot-only.

ToList works in most cases. You're likely running into one of the MonoTouch limitations wrt generics [1].

We'll need to complete, self contained test case (the details are very important), to see if this is fixed (5.3.x has many fixes) or not (work is on going on them). Thanks!

6.3.x beta releases have much improved to avoid this situation (the EngineExecutionException). You might want to try this, or similar code, again and report any remaining issues (with a test case).
