Help with Amikit needed

I aplogize in advance for posting this in "another man's forum", but the AmiKit website seems all but abandoned (please helpe me out a bit and then start yelling & screaming at me):

after many failed attempts to install AmiKit fo Android directly, I finally managed to get a working version running on my tablet via a rather quirky workaround:
1) Install Amiga Forever on a Windows PC.
2) Install a fully functional AmiKit instance in A4Ever on Windows.
3) Copy that AmiKit engine onto a virtual HD drive and move it over the Android tablet.

Now I've got the following issues/problems to solve:

1) AmiKit starts on Android, but after a few seconds a "Recoverable Software Error" screen appears (yellow on black) followed by a similar screen in red.
That process keeps repeating itself, until I push the left mouse button so often, that finally the Workbench screen appears, telling me that I interrupted the boot process by - guess what - pressing the left mouse button (too often).
Now I can finish to boot into a working Workbench, but I can not find out what triggered those bothersome error messages in the first place.

I am a total newbie to AmiKit or the new AmigaOS, so I got no clue where startup logs or control files are kept. Therefore I can't figure out which service/daemon prog is causing these error messages.


2) Even so my Workbench screen seems to be fully functional (all window gadgets seem to work) I can not move any window by any means.
I can open, resize and close a window, but I can *not* alter its position (clicking and dragging on the title bar does exactly nothing).

Can anybody offer me any help in resolving these two issues?

Thx in advance for any help and I truly don't mean to promote AmiKit here, but its the only modern day Amiga solution available for Android.

Besides that Amikit is (at best) competition

I do not believe that here is much experience regarding this topic. If I were you I would post on eab

http://eab.abime.net/

there is this forum where they also discuss android:

perhaps someone can help you there
