Default Orbot problem.. anyone know whats wrong?

I start orbot to log onto tor network.. Logs me onto the Tor network, but it refuses to resolve any .onions. Same thing is happening on my nexus7... Im usin cw11 nightly... I know im on tor cause I check to see.... but getting to the deep web I get an error:

WARN: Resolve requests to hidden services not allowed.

Every other site can work... Did I screw up a hosts file or something?

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

Just want to say I have the exact same problem. Not with Firefox, not with orbot, I can connect tor fine ( says I'm connected), but I can't open any .onion site. It says "name not resolved, or something...

If you guys are still experiencing these problems, you could try Anonify:, which does full transparent proxying without root and supports .onion addresses. If your samsungs are running android < 4.3 it may not work. It's also not free, but you could test and see if it can resolve .onion addresses. If it can, then it's some other issue. Otherwise, maybe posting the full logs could help.
