    The answer to this problem is rather simple, they have made a mistake in Admninistrator/com_mobiforms/views/mobiform/view.html.php. In this file you only have to change this part:
    protected $state = null; // ZoPi: = null is better programming, its not a must.
    protected $item = null;
    protected $form = null;

    function display($tpl = null)
    $this->state = & $this->get('State'); // ZoPi 2012/4/8: & added (by reference and overload operator) to get the right information
    $this->item = & $this->get('Item');
    $this->form = & $this->get('Form');

    // Check for errors.
    if (count($errors = $this->get('Errors'))) {
    JError::raiseError(500, implode("\n", $errors));
    return false;



    The rest can stay as is.
