I tried to run APAF on android during the last days. I am updating this
toping with what I've discovered so far.

After removing psutil, txtorcon was successfully imported from python.

But I see another issue, not strictly related to txtorcon but to the
standard library's temp module. Here a screenshot.


Apparently what happens is that the tempfile module does not successfully
create the temporary directory for hosting the configuration.

Note: I am using the same tor binary of Orbot, placed in
data/data/org.torproject.android/app_bin/ as you can see from

I think  we can discuss this on #tor-dev.
