I have the Samsung Galaxy S Advance running Android 2.3.6
I was able to set up the proxy server through Settings » Wireless and Network » WiFi Settings » (Options button) » Advanced.
This works well for the browser. If the proxy server requires authentication, then a dialog box pops up for that purpose.
However, all the other apps are totally useless behind a proxy server that requires authentication.
- How do I work around this without rooting my phone?
- If rooting is absolutely necessary, what app do you recommend to use (after rooting)? My google searches turn up ProxyDroid. Are there other alternatives?
