#14801 needs_information defect

"EXCLUDE Nodes" is not respected in Orbot

Description

I've entered FiveEyes in Exlude Nodes and yet it still connects me to them. At first I thought it's just relay nodes. But just now, I was connected to a path with an Exit Node in one of them!

I input countries as:
US, UK, NZ, CA, AU,

And I also tried with and without "Strict Nodes" option.

Orbot: 14.1.4-noPIE (Tor: 0.2.5.10)
Android: 4.4.4
Nexus 5, stock rooted
Downloaded Orbot from F-Droid

Did you restart Orbot between changing configurations?

Replying to n8fr8:

Did you restart Orbot between changing configurations?

Yes I did.

I just did again after rebooting my device. It connected to a UK Exit Node (again!)

Same here. Entered Exclude Nodes as you described, also edited torrc plus Strict Nodes, but without taking any effect. Orbot running as tansparent proxy to route all apps.
