No logs with Android 5 Lollipop thinks wifi has no internet since it gets blocked, but I could not find the application that check for internet connectivity without logs. Please fix it.

An app uses sound streaming to bypasses fw. I have an app that can stream sound (play sounds) even though it is blocked. It cannot download when blocked but can play sound by streaming. I think it is using 'Media server' which is a Core app. If Media server is blocked then it cannot stream even if it's not blocked. This happens using WiFi or 4G. When an app is blocked then it should also be blocked from streaming. Rooted Note 3 stock rom jb4.3
