It has to be said that previous v14.0.1 "release" was a TURD.

V14.0.4 & now v14.0.4.1 releases now mutually hang orbot & Android WiFi whenever WiFi is enabled. Rebooting Android 4.4.2, with WiFi & orbot new14.0.4/ enabled hangs WiFi, orbot & com.android.systemui - requiring a battery pull or long powerbutton hold reboot. Then, you have to rush into Android Settings, disable WiFi and reboot again, before orbot screws everything up. How much longer do we need to keep com.sec.msc.nts.android.proxy & Samsung AllShare disabled for wild-guess conflicts w/ orbot?

Why are new orbot features being added, when core app functionality has not yet been restored to Android 4.4.2 & 4.4.3? Please fix this problem, running since April 2014, first. Please!

orbot 14.0.4 & continue to work OK w/ WiFi-only Samsung Android 4.1.2 (Galaxy Tab 3).
