it’s a bit hard to tell (also since I do not have an Android device myself) since in the mobile version there are a lot of log messages that could either be warnings (like probably the one about the missing localization) or fatal errors. My guess would be that the “Type DiveDetails unavailable” and the next is the actual problem.\

Are you sure you are building with the latest version of kirigami? Running subsurface/scripts/ before building might help.
