Comment (by sysrqb):

 Let's call it "Tor" in the ticket's description, even if people are
 calling it "Orbot" (I'll leave the original summary).

 Orbot is an independent app the Guardian Project created. We copied and
 integrating that app into Tor Browser on Android during the initial
 development process, but we don't include "Orbot" anymore.

 We can add an option for power users for using another tor instance (and
 not launching our own).
