First of all some considerations before going on:
вЂў alpha stage of support for Lollipop has been recently introduced!
вЂў the app needs a rooted device
вЂў if you find something which seems broken, please contact us (email@example.com) before posting a negative feedback. We can fix things!
вЂў if you are in Indonesia, the app could not work for mobile connections (Wi-Fi and the carrier 3 Hutchinson Indonesia seems Ok). I'm trying to bypass the DNS hijacking the carriers perform. You could try the app and, within 15 minutes, asks for a reimbursement directly in the Play Store. Send me an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to be notified when I find a solution.
Then, here's a brief description of the app: it's a DNS changer for mobile networks which works in Android 4.4 KitKat (finally!) and possibly on Android 5.0 Lollipop.
The app was born to change DNS on KitKat, but from version 3.0.0 it has been ported to Android 5.0 Lollipop (see below) and from version 1.3.0 it has been backported to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean MR2.
What does it mean "alpha stage" for Lollipop?
Android Lollipop sources has been released on the 4th of November. SuperSU and root for many Nexus devices it's not so older, so I had a small amount of time to study what's changed. I think I found the solution for Lollipop, too, but I need some feedback from my beta testers before I can call it 100% functional. If you are not patient, give it a try and if it fails, ask for a refund directly on the Play Store, but please write me an e-mail, we could find a solution together.
