Default [Guide] How to listen to Pandora radio outside the us

Just thought there were some people that wanted to know.

This requires a rooted phone!

Firstly download the Pandora radio apk from a filesharing service or use market-enabler to get access to the American android market and download it from there.

Next, download Orbot from the market. Install it and don't forget to give it root permissions.

Before you press the on button in orbot, go to the app settings and select pandora to run through orbot.
Also check the "transparent proxying" box.

Next, start orbit by pressing the power button on the app to start the service.

Now open Pandora and it should work.

If not, try restarting orbit (kill the task too if it can't start again). Also if it prompts that it isn't available in your country AFTER it has launched, just press the back button and it should work. If you have any questions just ask

Hi followed your instructions to the letter but doesn't work. I get the message that pandora is not available in my country even with orbot running. I then close orbot and relaunch it but it freezes and can't connect anymore.

I'm using Pandora 1.4 on a rooted stock Samsung Vibrant ROM.

In Orbot Settings,
Select Transparent Proxying.
Click on Select Apps (wait a long time for all the apps to show up). Select Pandora.
Start Pandora. Wait a while. I had Pandora setup in the US. So I don't know what happens if you are installing Pandora fresh. But for me, it started playing.
