I found a bug. I'm on Android 4.4.2, Nexus 5, rooted.

Orbot works when I proxy all apps, with 'Transparent Proxying' and 'Tor Everything' enabled. It also turns off normally. It however doesn't work when I select specific apps. For example Firefox, and leave the rest blank.

When I start orbot with the specific apps setting, it gives the following error: 'Unable to start Tor:: stdout line is null! Access was denied or this executable is not a shell'.

It looks like i'm not the only one with this problem, see http://andaps.com/appid3491 (a comment made on 2014-03-10 05:04)
