first thanks for procviding Tor/Orbot, and your support!
I am using Samsung Galaxy Tab (SM-T210), rooted Android 4.4.2. Orbot (14.1.4-noPIE) seemingly works fine in standard mode (Firefox with ProxyMobile).

However I can't get "*transparent proxying*" to work. When running Orbot with "proxy everything", I don't get a connection to the Internet (browser, other apps). Browsers would say "page not available", or "server Only with Firefox & ProxyMobile active, Firefox will connect properly via Tor to the Internet.

Any idea on how to troubleshoot this? much appreciated...thx

When Orbot starts it asked to disable:
Samsung Link -> disabled it
com.sec.msc.nts.android.proxy -> could not find this running. I shut down Knox & AllShare instead.
