Hi there, I've been experiencing some problem since I flashed my Samsung Galaxy S5 with CM12.1 last week.

Right before I was stil running the stock ROM (KitKat 4.4.2) with root access and it worked perfect.

Now since I changed the ROM, could never connect Orbot. Tried with different versions unsuccessfully. I also asked for different bridge types (Scramblesuit, obfs3, obfs4, etc) but none of the worked.

Right now I'm running 15.0.1-RC-2-PIE (Tor and this is what I get when I enable Bridge Relays:

Question is, does it have anything to do with the ROM, the kernel, or nothing at all? I've been using Orbot for 3 years already and never got this kind of stuck.

Thank you so much for your help.
