Orbot on non-rooted Honeycomb 3.2 can use hidden built-in Proxy
The help text in Orbot for non-rooted systems suggests using approved applications. One such app is Firefox + the Proxy plugin. I am running on an ASUS Transformer Honeycomb 3.2 and having used the PDA tablet app, knew there was a way to set up a proxy port forward in the OS itself.
A Moto XOOM forum post pointed me to an app called "AnyCut" which lets you make a desktop widget for almost any system component or app. One of the components is "Proxy Settings". Thus:
- Run Orbot
- Run "Proxy Settings". Fill in the form to point to 127.0.0.1:8118
- Stock web browser will automatically use this proxy.
Interested in helping with research on this.
