I recently updated my Google Nexus 7 to Android 5.0, and I have Orbot 14.1.1-PIE.

Orbot will no longer start, and the log contains these 2 messages as the last things:
Tor (1) error: only position independent executables (PIE) are supported

Unable to start Tor: java.lang.Exception: Torrc config did not verify.

I have rebooted several times, but Orbot remains non-operational. Any suggestions?
