  • "May 22 02:14:48.703 [warn] Could not bind to 127.0.0.1:8118: Address already in use. Is Tor already running?" Something is already listening on 8118. Either it's Orbot or some other app. Try restarting your phone. – pastly May 22 at 13:46

Try turning off just the router leaving only the vpn on Then click the exit button to exit app. Wait a few sec then open up the app again it should automaticly start up router with the vpn already still on. Then check debug log if it connects. if not repeat the process a couple more times until it does connect.
