    what i did in one of my apps, which has a numbered tableView, was renumbering all relevant cells within the moveRow... method.

    basically, i check if one row has been moved up or moved down. Than loop through the relevant indexPaths, calc the appropriate number, get the cellForRowAtIndexPath, set the label.text for the number and that's it. (Mostly)

    I have the same problem with TableView. Application did crash with this exception during rows reordering in editing mode, backtrace shows nothing useful. This problem appears in my case when ROW HEIGHT of the TableView is 61 pixel only! I set it to 60 and exception is gone.

    I think the problem here is inside Cocoa internal code and this is another one BUG in apple SDK. You can check it yourself by the way. Just create simple application with NavBar, TabBar and TableViewController and string array as rows data (use 10+ strings in array to extend table beyond main window's borders), set "self.tableView.rowHeight = 61;" and try to reorder rows at the bootom of table. Application will crash soon with exception like yours. It will crash only for specified configuration and rowHeight=61, i.e. window->TabBarController->NavController->TableViewController. This is my case.

    So try to change rowHeight in your application, probably this will help to you too.
    Good luck!

    I know it's been awhile since you originally posted, but have you tried NSMutableArray's exchangeObjectAtIndex method?

    Looks like this:

    - (BOOL)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView canMoveRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath {
    return YES;

    - (void)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView moveRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)fromIndexPath toIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)toIndexPath {
    \[self.myList exchangeObjectAtIndex:fromIndexPath.row withObjectAtIndex:toIndexPath.row\];

    Seemed almost too simple when I found it, but it works.
