Lightroom Mobile (2.41 iOS in my case) has problems with camera profiles in synced RAW files.

Once an image is being edited in LR Mobile, it switches to a different color profile (it looks like the uppermost profile in the list of profiles in LR on my desktop.

This is actually weird - is LR Mobile even aware of all the additional color profiles I have?

If the file is synced back to the desktop and then the profile is switched once again there, it will stay that way, even on LR Mobile.

But there obviously is an issue with camera profile handling in LR Mobile. And the bad part about it is that there's no way to set profiles in LR Mobile and if it switches to a profile that looks bad, ther's no way out until a desktop version of LR is in reach.

This is a known issue. Custom profiles are not currently available to Lightroom mobile. A bug is in our system for this. For now, the workaround is not to use a custom camera profile for image you plan on syncing and editing.
