Orbot completely broken Android 4.1.2
I’ve used Orbot in the past on Android with success with different browsers, but the latest version seems to be completely broken as far as I could tell.
- No matter what you do no application can see Tor running, so checking the Tor status page shows that Tor is inactive even when it’s running.
The phone is rooted and I set “Transparent proxying to ON”
But not “Tor everything”
I then manually added different browsers in the add app section.
I tried in several different browsers including Orweb (marked as ‘latest’).
One browser seemed to realize it was connected to something but returned the message “There is a problem with the proxy server” and could not connect to anything.
All other browsers I tried simply ignore that Tor is running and connect directly (as seen on inspection of an IP checking site (or in Orweb that Check Tor page))
Currently this implementation of Tor on Android is completely unusable, which is a shame as it used to work great.
