ABP with root privileges prevents HTTPS

Postby xarx » Fri Jan 02, 2015 5:38 am

I have a rooted Android 4.4.2 and ABP 1.2.1. ABP works fine, until I grant it root privileges using SuperuserSU Free 2.40. After that (and after the phone reboot) all https connections stop working - including GooglePlay and https://www.google.com. When I prohibit root access for ABP and reboot again, HTTPS starts working again. Do I have something set up incorrectly, or can ABP no longer be used with root privileges?

Well, as no-one seems to have a solution, please consider this a bug report. As a whole and recommended functionality is unusable, I suggest to consider this a serious bug.

Thank you,
Martin.

I have resolved the problem - almost after a year :-).

The problem was caused by simultaneously allowing to ABP the root access AND at the same time leaving the wi-fi connection proxy directed to the ABP proxy (localhost:2020). After disabling the proxy in the wi-fi connection settings, HTTPS started to work.
