This page has the previous releases or Orbot:
https://guardianproject.info/releases/

I'm almost 100% certain that the previous version that I had installed via F-Droid is the July version.

Which release below is the one for Kitkat? RC1 or RC2?

  • Orbot-16.1.0-RC-1-tor-0.4.0.4-rc-fullperm-armeabi-v7a-release.apk
    • 2019-07-08 15:02 12M
  • Orbot-16.1.0-RC-2-tor-0.4.0.4-rc-fullperm-armeabi-v7a-release.apk
    • 2019-07-09 15:36 12M

IMPORTANT NOTE: The page is missing the cryptographic signature of the RC2 release.
