hey guys, theres actually an easier work around to listen to Pandora Radio outside the States, and it doesnt even require you to download Orbot.

Heres how, pop your phone's settings > Wireless & networks > Proxy Setting > set IP to 127.0.0.1 and Port 8118.

Voila! This should work like a charm, enjoy

do you see a small check box down below the proxy settings saying "Use proxy only on wifi" ? Uncheck that if youre not using wifi atm, it should work after that

if it still doesnt work, heres another alternative to it, but only applicable when ure using your mobile network instead of wifi.

Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile networks > Access Point Names (APN) > under Proxy and port change it to 127.0.0.1 and 8118 respectively. It should work too, but only when ure using mobile network data

guys, ive just found out that the 127.0.0.1 proxy server is somewhat "down" at the moment, that explains why it didnt work for you

127.0.0.1 is localhost, so it mean it redirect to your own device, and tor use the port 8118 so you are simply using tor more directly, it is possible that it work better but you still need to enable orbot...

As for your proxy down comment, I am not sure if you are seriously not knowing what you are doing or making fun of people... I hope the first statement is the correct one...
