Description

Orbot > Settings > Use Proxy
I set HTTPS proxy(Polopo).

Orbot > Proxy > Tor Network: work!

But, if I select "Bridges", Orbot stuck with "Starting".

Expected result:
If I enable "Bridges" AND I'm using a proxy, Orbot should use proxy to connect to the "Bridge".

Tested using Orbot v15.2.0-RC-8-multi
Set to use Proxy as explained in ticket, connected using bridges. Works for me.

Replying to cypherpunks:

Tested again with same version. Still no success.

Orbot---Wifi---HTTPS Proxy---Internet

Orbot:
ReachablePort 443 only.
HTTPS Proxy to 192.168.x.y:z.
Enable Bridge

Result:
Orbot request never reach to HTTPS proxy(nothing in Proxy server's log).
This is not a proxy server's fault.

Again, I can connect Orbot if I disable Bridge.

Test case II:
Orbot:

Uncheck ReachablePort.
Select "Aamazon" on bridge selection menu.

Result:
Same. Orbot never try to connect Amazon using proxy server I specified.

Expected:
Orbot try to connect to amazon via proxy.

Test case III:
Orbot:

Uncheck ReachablePort.
Scan QR from bridges.torproject.org/bridges?transport=obfs4

Result:
Same. Orbot never try to connect using proxy server I specified.
Sometimes, Orbot immediately turns into green, but this is a lie because
proxy server didn't log orbot's access, and you can't connect anything via orbot.

So what do you think @anona ? Do you still believe I'm wrong?
