Samsung Galaxy S4 / Cyanogenmod 11 M8
Orbot 14.0.5.

After upgrading to the latest version of Orbot (14.0.5) any time the screen goes to sleep and Orbot is running, the LED on the phone will flash. This draws attention to the phone due to the brightness of LED. Previous versions of Orbot did not display this behavior


  • Install Orbot
  • Run Orbot
  • Let screen go to sleep or manually put it to sleep
  • LED starts to flash
  • Wake screen and unlock, LED stops flashing

Expected outocme:

  • With orbot running if screen goes to sleep, LED should not flash

And forgot one point...

Disconnect Orbot from the Tor network and put phone to sleep results in no LED flashing
