I want my apps to connect to the internet like this:

Android Phone -> VPN -> Orbot

So far, I've been able to achieve this with OrWall (turning off transparent proxying in Orbot and selecting the apps I want to torify in OrWall).

Unfortunately, OrWall is out of date and will not be updated any further. Is there any other way to achieve this?

As I've written before in Tor.SE - you need a separate box to route traffic to prevent network leaks 100%. I'd recommend to use a Raspberry Pi or Orange Pi PC board to do so - it will be secure, a way more faster, and will save your Phone/Tablet battery life. For example Nexus 7 lives with just Orbot for 1 day and some hours, without Orbot(with a routing box) - 3-4 days no problem! The problem that can never be solved by installing something on a phone is that you need to control all the processes, especially on boot sequence, and give no root permission to programs. You can use a wireshark/tcpdump and just boot your you-think-torified phone or tablet and take a look at traffic: at early stages it will jailbreak and go online without Tor
