Re: [tor-talk] Not able to download Tor to droid]]

With technical problems at Rugged Inbox Friday and Saturday, I was not
able to respond over the weekend.  Sorry.  I did try to download from
https://f-droid.org/.  It remarked on the screen the download had indeed
begun, but was not completed.  -- Had already tried to look for the
earlier Tor download on the hard drive, but believe I had already deleted
it before re-attempting to download Tor the other day. Regardless, it was
not on the Menu.  Also tried looking for Tools/Downloads in Firefox as
suggested, but couldn't find it.  Since I can't find the new download,
think I probably need to do a factory reset.  Apparently, the tablet needs
at least some of the factory apps to successfully download Tor.  Although
the download problem was there BEFORE I deleted the google apps.  The
droid release is 5.0.  While I was able to scour the Menu, there isn't a
better way to search the hard drive on a droid as in Windows?  Thanks
again to all of you. libertyinperil

The url Tor was downloaded from is guardianproject.info/apps/orbot
direct download(.apk).  I tried doing so again after your response.  The
tablet operating system indicated it had downloaded, -- but it had not. If
it is still on the droid hard drive, how do I find it? Is there a search
function as in Windows?
... Kindly be advised, I did get rid of all the google and other
commercial apps on the tablet earlier after Tor would not properly
download.  Every one I could find.  Are any of these apps required by the
droid to download Orbot? -- Will not download from the google store since
they demand registration and do track. The ISP does not appear to be a
factor since it is public, a coffee shop. Have had no problems downloading
Tor updates to Windows machines there.  The droid I'm trying to download
Tor to is a tablet, not a phone.  Thanks for your help.  libertyinperil
