Hopefully there's a way to unlock and root Huawei phones again so that a proper firewall can be used. :/
I have just released beta version 2.245
I'm testing NetGuard to control my mobile data usage and so far I'm pretty darn impressed with what I see, thanks a lot for all the work!
My question is about how the blocking of apps is implemented? It seems like the network requests from blocked apps just get eaten and time out. Is that correct?
The problem with that is that some apps can handle not having network and have different behavior in both modes, but are very sluggish and not very or not at all usable while requests are pending. Is there way to let the app know that there is no network, or to send a connection refused or similar response immediately instead of timing out? I tested with Quora (which just hangs) and Toy Blaze (which takes a long time to start up). Or did I just miss a setting somewhere?
