I again have access to my main computer and have uploaded the Honeybadger Firewall update to Google Play.
Update: Removed download; up-to-date version available on Google Play. So… I made a pretty solid update the the Honeybadger Firewall; fixed the issues with some devices not loading rules on reboot or logging not working and improved database performance. Unfortunately, I’m in Afghanistan for the next several months, and I forgot to save my signature … Continue reading “Honeybadger Firewall 4.5”

If anyone has … Continue reading “Honeybadger Update 4.0”

I finally got around to finishing the latest update. It contains the following: – Ability to enable/disable the firewall. – Viewing the raw rules (from settings) now only displays about a page worth of lines, with buttons to go forward and back. This should fix the absurd load times and timeouts previously seen with a … Continue reading “HoneyBadger Update 3.5”
