    (just in case somebody's interested)

    requires rooted 2.2.2 S7

    i have tried different 2.2.2 firmware for S7, and all of them got TUN driver built in the kernel, so need not to worry about recompiling tun.ko for your phone.

    • Download OpenVPN Installer (Market) and install to /system/xbin
    • Download OpenVPN Settings (Market) and install
    • adb shell: ln -s /system/xbin /system/xbin/bb
    • Put openVPN config files to /sdcard/openvpn
    • Connect using OpenVPN settings

    in case in doubt if TUN is really built-in, here are ways to check:

    check 1:
    pull /proc/config.gz and extract it. open the config file and look for the line:
    Code:
    CONFIG_TUN=y
    check 2:
    Code:
    #dmesg|grep tun
    it should say something like this:
    Code:
    <6>[    2.030231] tun: Universal TUN/TAP device driver, 1.6
    <6>[    2.034910] tun: (C) 1999-2004 Max Krasnyansky <maxk@qualcomm.com>
    <6>[    3.845735] IPv4 over IPv4 tunneling driver
    <6>[    3.850138] GRE over IPv4 tunneling driver
    <6>[    3.880778] tunl0: Disabled Privacy Extensions
    <6>[    3.887442] IPv6 over IPv4 tunneling driver
