is out (binaries on Github for now) for testing, specifically on Android Q.
It is built on a new release of:
This now uses the method of bundling the tor executable as a tor.so
library, allowing the Android runtime to unpack them into the /data/libs
read-only space within the app's private directory. We then can just
execute it there, without needing to unpack it, copy it, etc.
The word is that this will work on Android Q still. I have tested on an
emulator, but not a real device yet. I don't have a Pixel of any kind,
at the moment, so please let me know if you do and can test.
Otherwise, we are working to move tor and other important binaries, like
obfs4proxy, into actual in-process libraries. We've recently made great
progress with this on our iOS work with Onion Browser, and so it should
now be possible on Android.
