It's pretty simple, you just need a US billing address (which can be faked ... not really recommended if you don't want to get in trouble). Details: http://android.stackexchange.com/q/7254/1465

EDIT: Turns out, this is irrelevant.

You should get one eventually, but you could also try going into the app's settings, checking Use Bridges, and enter the IP of a US bridge. I don't know of any US bridges myself but this mat be useful: https://www.torproject.org/docs/bridges#FindingMore

And yet no one is giving a complete guide how to do it... Ok, we need Orbot, and that you go to Tor page when you don't get a slightest idea how to use it on your Android phone...

What are you talking about? There's no Tor page.

Oh, in the guide the link to Tor is purely informational, you don't even need to look at it. The Tor link I posted above is a complex way to possibly have a higher chance of being routed into the US ... that's really only for people who are ready to do the research into it. The guide on StackExchange should be enough.

If Tor is essentially a proxy - would your phone need to have iptables in order for this method to work?
