I have a Sony Ericsson X8,Android 2.1 – update 1.
I have installed Orbot from Android market.
Installation OK. Root allowed – “excellent”.
Starting Orbot I get:

  • Setting up full transparent proxy
  • Warning: error starting transparent proxy
  • Proxying!
  • Bootstrapped 100% Done

Tor network is running
Check indicates: Sorry. You are not using Tor.
The transparent proxy do not work for me. (Always DISABLED)
What is wrong?

Even though your device is root-capable, it does not have a kernel capable of the Netfilter "OWNER" feature we need for transparent proxying.

For now, you can use Orweb browser or Firefox Mobile with the ProxyMob Add-on for web browsing through Tor.

Otherwise, you need to install a ROM such as CyanogenMOD 7 or find a kernel which has more features supported.
