orbot is not working on Android (Froyo 2.2)

I have a Samsung Galaxy S with Android Froyo 2.2 and installed the Orbot 1.04 .
I have followed your instructions from here

but after Orbot is activated (green window) and check if Tor is working with your web check page, it says " sorry but you are not using Tor"

It looks like I'm not the only one that I have this issue, others from xda-developers have the same issue.

Is it possible to fix this ?

Kind Regards,

Dinu - on a non-rooted device, you need to take additional steps for Tor proxying to work.

If you are on a 3G network, you can set your Proxy settings within the mobile network APN configuration. Point it to localhost:8118 (Orbot's built in HTTP proxy).

You can also download Firefox for Android, and install the "Proxy Mobile" add-on within Firefox. This will configure Firefox to point to the Orbot proxy.

Otherwise, you can also try download the text-only browser "NDBrowser" from within the Market.

If you want the full power of Orbot, then you should root and flash your device with the latest CyanogenMOD firmware:

Sorry for not mentioning but my phone is rooted, tough is not CyanogenMOD flashed.

Anyway, I want to use the Pandora radio , how do I do this if orbot is not working properly ?
