Comment (by WinXAnd511):

 @sysrqb, @gk

 Indeed - in the "old" version I had restricted the exit nodes. In the new
 version this is not possible :-(

 Strange thing is when I reinstalled Orbot no problem - it connects. Using
 Orfox however doesn't work anymore - keeps searching and doesn't find a
 thing (not even wikipedia). Uninstall after Tor for Android and reinstall
 Orfox did solve the problem. It is now __extremely__ slow, quite unusable
 in fact (1 min loading time for wikipedia on high speed !WiFi).

 The new situation is that only Tor Browser for Android works and I can't
 set my exit node restrictions (or preferences as it is in Orbot), making
 it not that useful :-/ Changing identity is impossible too :-(and I get
 the impression it is using a lot of battery power (online with nearby high
 speed WiFi, measured Tor vs Firefox focus, connecting both to wikipedia).

 Sadly the documentation on torproject.org is outdated - only Orbot and
 Orfox is available.
 I couldn't find the torrc file to edit on Android either.
