You should read this before clicking this post away, I bet you like this: HERE, because it's for Android now!
Note: for the best user experience, you need a rooted device, there are many tutorials on XDA how to root your device.

Hello,

Today I want to introduce you my new application. I and of friend mine have created this application.

Element53 is a ready-to-use DNS-tunnel for Android. It can be used for different things. If you don't know what a DNS-tunnel can do, you can find it HERE (really, you should do this, I am sure you want this on your phone!) (first 2 chapters). So this application should be perfect if you are going abroad. Beside that it can also be used for penetration testing.

Element53 creates a TCP-tunnel to a SOCKS proxy server. The client side of the tunnel is localhost:3128. For your convenience the server part is provided.

If you have rooted your device (this is no requirement) you can install ProxyDroid and route all internet traffic into the tunnel.

You have to configure ProxyDroid before you can use all the functions of Element53. You should apply the following settings:
Host should be: 127.0.0.1
port should be: 3128
Proxy type: SOCKS5

After that, you have to start Element53 by pressing the 'green button', after that you can start ProxyDroid. Because Element53 creates a DNS tunnel, the connection is not very fast, but it works fine.

Element53 Lite allows you to test until you have reached 10 mb traffic. If you like Element53, you can upgrade to the Pro version.

Youtube demonstration video:


Lite: Market link up here.

Pro: Market link up here

I have tried to test this application as much as I can, but I guess there are still some bugs.

If you encounter a bug a problem, please make a reply on this post, and I will work on it. If you think it works great, please leave a positive review on the market, thanks! If you have any other feature request, please tell me.

Or, if you have any questions, please ask me, and I will reply ASAP .
Update: (5 july 2012)
Full support from SDK7 (Android 2.1) from now!

Update: (4 july 2012)
Today I have updated Element52 to version 1.1. I fixed some bugs and added some buttons for switching between screens, because not everybody knows that you can 'swipe' between them.

"For your convenience the server part is provided."
Does this mean that you are running server to which android client is connecting?

Yes, that's correct. You only have to install Element53, and for the best user experience a rooted device with ProxyDroid.

If you have any questions, please ask!
