Orbot does reveal my real IP even on a rootet phone with Transparent Proxying enabled. This has been tested with a rooted Samsung S4 a month ago and now on a Nexus 5 with Android 4.4.4. The website I tested it with doesn't have an icon, which Firefox does ask for anyway. Log-file excerpt: [10/Sep/2014:22:40:43 +0200] "GET /favicon.ico HTTP/1.1" 401 1958 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Android; Mobile; rv:32.0) Gecko/32.0 Firefox/32.0". On this occassion my real IP shows up. I' also testing Chrome with several options enabled. "Use Default Iptables" seem to work. with ver14.0.7.2 butnot with the current one.
