I have a nexus7 1st gen, 4.4.2 android. I just get a red cross on orweb saying I am not using it. Are there settings I should be using?
Orweb is broken on Android 4.4.x due to the fact that Google removed proxy setting support in their WebKit component.
We have a new browser coming based on Firefox, but it is not quite ready yet.
Your option are:
- Use Firefox with our "privacy enhanced configuration" documented here: https://guardianproject.info/apps/proxymob/ (WARNING: this should be considered more private but NOT anonymous)
- Root your device and use transparent proxying to run all apps, browsers through Orbot/Tor. You should also use "Incognito" mode in Chrome, Firefox, etc if you do this.
- Be a very, very early alpha tester of Orfox, our new browser, with development builds here: https://guardianproject.info/builds/Orfox/latest/
Orbot has been updated on Google Play Store and here: https://guardianproject.info/releases/Orweb-release-0.5.2.apk
with a fix for KitKat!
Mine also said that I wasn't using Tor, what you have to do is go to the settings on orbot which allows you to choose which apps to run through Tor and select Orweb
I Hope you find this useful :-)
