Comment (by torlove):

 After the whole "addon signing fiasco" I decided to update to the latest.
 Knowing that it MUST also have the fix for the bug I reported over a month

 I have this same problem. Kitkat 4.4.2

 "- Orbot is starting…
 - Tor control port file not created
 - Unable to start Tor: java.io.IOException: Control port file not created:
 len = 0

 Still have Orbot working with Orfox.

 In no position to install debug versions at this stage.
