Re: [tor-talk] Not able to download Tor to droid
If you stop Tor (Orbot) and then start it again the issue should be fixed.
On a side note why isn't Tor built into Orfox on Android? On iPhone there
is an open source project OnionBrowser where the Tor Binary is built in.
I am curious why the Orbot/Orfox team hasn't done the same.
Source Code: https://github.com/OnionBrowser/iOS-OnionBrowser
