Hello!

I have flashed my SGS-I9100 successfully with CM11 M3 (Version 11-20140210-SNAPSHOT-M3-i9100).

Now, I want to install app "OpenVPN Settings" that is depending on a specific binary openvpn.
In order to install this binary, the developer provides another app "OpenVPN Installer".

The issue with CM11 is that this installer app cannot set /system (and its related partition) to rw mode in order to put the binary to /system/xbin.
In /system/xbin another binary file "busybox" is located.

I have attached a screenshot displaying the app log.

Question:
Is there a workaround e.g. to manually set /system to rw mode and then complete the installation?
If yes, how would that realised?

Or are there other options to fix this issue?

THX

Yes with root explorer. Don't forget to set root in phone settings.

  1. uninstall OpenVPN installer you've installed from play store
  2. download this OpenVPNInstaller-debug.apk
  3. install it manually (from download folder tap on the .apk file, if you can't do it google for "installing apk")
  4. run the OpenVPN Installer you've just installed
  5. install openvpn with default options
done

you can use then OpenVPN Settings

hi Penzoiders

I'm having the very same problem but cannot download the apk above, is it possible you upload it somewhere again???

Many thanks!!!

downloaded! I will try it right now and let you know

Thanks!

Edited: I was able to install it properly and the OpenVPN Settings finds the setting however I have to fix something in my config since it does seem to work, will try it later....
Many thanks again

I wonder why is this one working, is it installing the binary in a different way??
