How do I setup a Tor server on my Android tablet?

I can install the Orbot client, but how do I contribute to the tor network?

I have my tablet on a WiFi the most of the day so it would be nice to contribute to the bandwidh of the Tor network.

Select the Settings button (Orbot Settings button) on the top-right corner. In the Settings screen, scroll down to the "Relays" section and tick the box next to "Relaying - Enable your device to be a non-exit relay". The relay will listen to port 9001 by default, but you can adjust that by changing the relay port.
