Hi all, I hope you are well.
EDIT: We have now released a fix for the connectivity problems some of you have been experiencing in 5.9. Read this announcement for details. You should be getting the update, depending on the source of your installation, in the next couple of days. If you want to speed up this process, you can always uninstall your version, and install the one from our homepage (https://blokada.org).
The fix is included in Blokada 5.10.1, so confirm your version after the update. In practice this version is just changing the default DNS back to Cloudflare, so that your connectivity is restored now, and you don’t have to wait until we address the actual problem with our own DNS.
You should be also fine without updating, just by changing the DNS setting in your app:
- (Android) Go to Advanced tab → Networks → All networks → Tap on “Use DNS” → Choose “Cloudflare”.
- (iOS) Go to Settings tab → Encryption & DNS → DNS → Choose “Cloudflare”
You can of course choose other DNS server than Cloudflare, but the less popular ones may have their own problems, and we cannot guarantee they will work at this moment.
I also wanted to say thank you to everyone who took the effort to provide us the information we asked for during the last days. It was amazing to see so many people to step up and spend your time helping us debug those issues. This is a truly amazing power of our community.
If you are on Android 11 already, you may experience other problems despite the update. Sadly, we do not support Android 11 yet - I’ll try to address it in the coming weeks.
