Description

Proxy Type;
If I input "HTTP" (no ") for HTTP Proxy, Orbot fails to connect it.
If I input "HTTPS", Orbot connect to (tor node IP):443 via proxy, as expected.

Conclusion:
Just remove "HTTP". Or, make a radio selection menu, like

(_) None
(O) HTTPS
(_) SOCKS4
(_) SOCKS5

I'm not an orbot user, but, is the 'http' proxy setting just setting Tor's "HttpProxy" config option? If so, that's only used for vanilla directory connections, not for TLS connections, which explains why it didn't help you.

For Tor Browser, we solved that in the interface by calling it "HTTP / HTTPS" for that option in the pull-down menu.

I'm not Orbot code reader; @n8fr8 where is my torrc located on my phone?

Ahh... yes, let's change it to
(O) HTTP/HTTPS

tor config is located in app data folder:

/data/data/org.torproject.android/app-bin/torrc

but:

  • u need to be root to get there
  • and orbot uses also "shared preferences" for config /data/data/org.torproject.android/shared_prefs/org.torproject.android_preferences.xml
