This is about the bug discussed with 'n8fr8' on #guardianproject at freenode.
So, the relay functionality you said was broken and needs to be fixed for 'orbot' on smartphones.
I checked with the orbot version '' and you have checked with the 'dev branch of the code' as you said (i suppose that means you have checked with latest version of code by compiling and running the latest updated version from git; i will do it too and let you know again). But none seemed to work. In fact, you said you were getting a more significant crash, when you enabled relaying on smartphone for dev branch of code.
You also thought if the problem is: whether the Relay conflict is with transproxying/root or with Tor client connection in general. But, i'm not sure if it later seemed not to be the problem.
Then, you told me to change the torrc file on my android phone, as you said that orbot is not setting the relay values properly which might be the reason for orbot not working as a relay on smartphone.
So, I will do that and let you know about it. I will also keep checking '' to see if any new dev/debug release is posted.
Thankyou so very much for all your help, Mr.Nathan.
