Default Tor and Orweb working Anyone?

Has anyone been able to get Tor working with the official Orweb browser for Tor on Android? First time using Tor on a phone here and can't get it to work.

Is root mandatory for this to work? Is there special settings I need to set? Guess I've been spoiled with the desktop version of Tor bundle working out of the box on my home computer. Don't know much about proxy settings and what not.

Just tried Firefox (my preferred browser anyways) and downloaded the Tor plugin. I enabled Tor for android and says connected, I then use Firefox private browsing mode and check Tor and shows working. Is this all correct? I didn't alter any settings manually, straight out of the box default settings here.

Shows an error though about referrers? Appreciate any help with this, thank you.
