What's new in this version (0.2.4):
Updated Logo. Udated openvpn binary to support ifconfig in locations other than /system/xbin/bb.
You need a root device the tun/tap driver and busybox.
OpenVPN Installer will try to install openvpn (2.1.1) in /system/xbin or /system/bin. Your mileage might vary depending on your phone.
Androids ifconfig implementation fails to configure the tunnel device correctly. So you need ifconfig provided by busybox. Try a BusyBox Installer from the market.
The path to ifconfig is a compile time option to openvpn and can not be changed at runtime. This installer includes multiple binaries with preconfigured ifconfig locations.
The preferred way to install openvpn is to put busybox at /system/xbin/busybox and then choose openvpn preconfigured for '/system/xbin/busybox ifconfig'.
Finally /system/xbin/bb is not needed anymore! I hope this update makes live easier for some of you.

Works great. Follow instructions in XDA developers forum and it is almost painless. Getting tun.ko driver is probably hardest part.
Wish I could find a tun.ko for Vibrant...
A must have. By far the most useful app for android. Thanks.
Works perfectly with flykernal 10a
Auto reboots phone on install. Incredible w/ froyo.
Lg gt540 doesn't work
Where do I get the tun.ko module? Sammy Galaxy S I9000.
ONLY /system/xbin/bb works for N1, therefore also symlinks for ifconfig and route in same spot. You may also need tun.ko
Cannot get it to work with froyo
Worked fine on my Motorola Milestone.
