I installed Orbot for android on a Nexus 6p device, it works fine on first launch, but when I tried to "exit", it kept launching in the background, going to the app again, the UI was toggling fast between active and inactive (yellow and black).
Is Orbot not yet supported on Nougat devices, or is it a configuration issue ?

  • Orbot hasn't been updated for Android N yet. Granted, normally older apps work fine on newer Android versions, so I'm not sure what the problem is here. Oct 14, 2016 at 13:41
  • That's what i thought, but given it's current state, it's quite unusable Oct 15, 2016 at 1:06
  • I know it's not recommended, but for the time being, maybe you could try one of the other Tor apps? Oct 15, 2016 at 13:25
  • To keep this information current, I have an Android N (LineageOS 14.1) device and Orbot currently works.
