DroidWall - Android Firewall


☆ ATTENTION: ROOT REQUIRED!!! If you don't know what root is, please search for "Android root" in the Internet.

This is the perfect solution if you don't have an unlimited data plan, or just wants to see your battery lasting longer.

Please remember to disable the firewall before uninstalling, otherwise you will need to reboot your device to turn it off.

Een firewall. Ook voor Android nodig als je klein beetje security-minded bent.

Very nice addition revoke network traffic (requires lib/modules/netfilter on /system)

To use, 1. I rooted phone with http://www.droidforums.net/forum/android-forum/156103-nerdslogic-resource-thread-multiple-phones.html Note that the -widget- button did not work until AFTER I had enabled the firewall from the Application button -> settings -> Enable. Now the widget enables and disables the firewall... very confusing, just glad to have it working finally.

Droidwall is a decent firewall and gets the job done. Much the same as the rest of the firewalls available but lets you control the on/off state of the firewall. It doesn't provide information on what apps are trying to access the network (either via Wifi or 3/4G); which makes troubleshooting access a headache. Another huge problem is the lack of logging and traffic sent by app and connection. It's cool that it's free but maybe they'll release a better paid version that incorporates basic necessary firewall tools.

Runs good Saves Mb on my data plan but if you are not completely sure what are you doing, it may waste time. For me, Chrome uses the 'running as root', Wifi direct uses kernel.

Installing on galaxy Y For who say not working on galaxy Y , 1st install "kuro kernel" then install this firewall , this firewall needs iptable support from kernel , original Samsung kernel don't have support.
