Re: HOWTO: Leak Protection for Android

If you are on stock Kitkat or a non recently updated custom kitkat ROM, there is a VPN issue in which all traffic will leak despite firewall rules. I suggest updating to the latest CyanogenMod, aokp, or omni.

Re: HOWTO: 4 easy steps to connect your Android with OpenVPN

I would suggest using Fdroid or the devs self compiled copies of Openvpn for android https://plai.de/android/

Also he has an xposed module to auto accept to avoid that check box and ok confirmation. :)

@Tealc if you mean developing a CS android app, I would be for it. :D
