Hi! I am about to install /e/ test build of Pie on my Sony Xperia XA2 that is also running Android 9. I’ve done a lot of reading on other threads here about how it is done so I am anticipating little difficulty with this. But what I want to do afterward may not be possible with Android phones.
I have a VPN anonymizer with IPVanish and they have an Android apk. I’ve been using this for months but when I try to start a session with No Root Firewall that also creates a VPN session and it closes IPVanish. I searched this problem and it seems Android is limited to only be able to run one VPN session at a time.
I have rooted phones before because I wanted to be able to setup a firewall using IP Table rules…but I’m used to using Linux on a computer. On Android the app for this is AF+ (Android Firewall Plus). You have to be root on this and it doesn’t create a VPN session so u can still use IPVanish for that.
So is the ONLY way for me to have a firewall running in /e/ and a VPN anonymizer to root the phone or is there a no root option in /e/ ?
