Android Librem Tunnel crashes when tapping rocket icon


#1

librem.one vpn tunnel
android 4.X

Sources:
CLI Client
Tunnel Docs

According to installation instructions :

open tunnel app
tap the rocket icon - lower right corner
enter username and password
done

Problem:
On my samsung galaxy note 10.1 with android 4.X tapping the rocket icon crashed the app.

Solution:

Find the url to download the librem one ovpn file ( vpn config file) on the CLI client source page
Download the ovpn file with a browser.
Rename the ovpn file it in accordance with Tunnel docs
copy it to the “/Android/data/one.librem.tunnel/files” folder (just to store it and know what it was)
open the tunnel app
tap the plus icon in the upper left corner to add a profile
tap the import link in the profile pop up dialog, no need to fill in any fields
navigate to and select the librem-one.ovpn file I just downloaded
done

It took me a while to figure this out, so I’m posting this just in case other users run into the same problem and can’t find a workaround.
