 Replying to [comment:6 gk]:
 > Okay, I double-checked that I did not make a mistake here. The `tor-
 android-service` repo I used is indeed on commit
 de13672fe1ef6eb180edd4ec80f3f416f5d5c6b1 and should thus have your fix.
 However, testing the resulting nightly as follows still shows the behavior

 Yes, there is a bug in the code. The app is only processing bridges if the
 custom entry has obfs4 or meek at a first field. So the custom fields are
 being ignored and then the app proceeds to just make a direct connection.
 I'll put in a fix.
