[Q] xposed, VPN, ICS & Auto VPN Dialog Confirm
I read the module FAQ and the code page and tried out module & xposed code and I was not able to get around my problem. I'm not sure that it was supposed to get around my problem though, but I was hoping to get your take on things. I can't find much data, though I can find a few people asking the same questions as I.
I installed an android 4.3 ROM (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2121063
) on my phone and tried to connect to an OpenVPN based VPN provider. I got an error and contacted their support. Part of that process was to try another app, so we tried the OpenVPN COnnect app, the official OpenVPN app. I got a different error with that app.
One says that "your android firmware does not support the VPNService API("
OpenVPN Connect says "Sorry, due to a known issue in this version of android, it is not possible to gain permission to open a VPN tunnel"
There seems to be a few problems popping up with OpenVPN based VPNs in various Android 4.x OSs, but none complaine about 4.3 specifically. Usually they complain about 4.4 or back when 4.0 and 4.1 were new. I found this article talking about it on OpenVPN, and they're just pointing the finger, but I can't find the actual bug referenced:
I came across your code on this page:
And decided to try loading xposed and your module after emailing OpenVPN Connect and receiving a response right away. The guy who replied seemed to think the error is related to the fact that the confirmation acknowledgement dialog is not able to be summoned. I figured maybe the ROM wasn't bypassing it properly or missing some part of it, so I tried your way of bypassing it.
After loading xposed and your module, and selecting the 2 VPN apps, I still get the same results.
What are your thoughts? Should I give up and find a new ROM?
Why am I stating the obvious? b/c back in the day, The Internets were full of answers. Nowadays, they are full of questions. Please, take the time to do like I am doing here and make sure to "seed" the information back there in an intelligible & detailed manner so that the next guy doesn't have to spend a day & a half researching how to re-engineer the wheel.
