I've been using android orbot for a few months now with no issue but for a few days it seems to have stopped working. It seems that it can't find any servers? I don't really know what's wrong. I don't see any errors but the list of servers is empty and my pubic ip is my local ip. I have tried refreshing, restarting and changing my location preferences between USA and global. I have also been using VPN without bridges.

I think this is an intentional change to reduce load on the tor network:

But I can't find the ticket for it.

Seems like there are two issues being reported here:

1) The user interface changed to not display Tor circuit information (It was intentional, and I'll track down the ticket or at least the commit)

2) "my pubic ip is my local ip" makes it sound like the VPN isn't working? @T014y88 how are you checking your "local ip"? Which browser or service are you using?

I was looking at a tool I have on my phone but after double checking with it might be fine. Based on you reporting that it might not be displaying I tried a few more things and my up changes when I refresh the identity, change preferences, or turn off the app.
