I would like to know if ¿is there any possibility to implement Dnscrypt on Sailfish?, or ¿if at least there are some community guys working on that?

There is a possibility already but not as easy as one click/touch. From https://github.com/jedisct1/dnscrypt-proxy/releases/tag/2.0.25 download linux-arm version dnscrypt-proxy-linux_arm-2.0.25.tar.gz then extract files from tar.gz to /tmp

tar -xzvf ./dnscrypt-proxy-linux_arm-2.0.25.tar.gz -C /tmp

set attribute

chmod +x /tmp/linux-arm/dnscrypt-proxy

then install dnscrypt-proxy service

/tmp/linux-arm/dnscrypt-proxy -service install

edit dnscrypt-proxy conf file according your needs


next step is to disable connman build dns proxy, create file

touch /var/lib/environment/connamn/nodnsproxy.conf

echo 'CONNMAN_ARGS=--nodnsproxy' >var/lib/environment/connamn/nodnsproxy.conf

and force connman to use local dnscrypt-proxy DNS address for network connections, I prefer to set it globaly, for example for all wifi connections edit


and in [WiFi] section add


then restart connmand service

systemctl restart connamnd

and run dnscrypt-proxy service

systemctl start dnscrypt-proxy

Another way to disable ConnMan's DNS proxy is to override its systemd service.

  1. Create a folder named "connman.service.d" to /etc/systemd/system/
  2. Put a file named "override.conf" to the folder with the following content:
ExecStart=/usr/sbin/connmand -n -W nl80211 --nobacktrace --systemd --noplugin=wifi --nodnsproxy $SYSCONF_ARGS $CONNMAN_ARGS

I also make /etc/resolv.conf immutable by issuing chattr +i /etc/resolv.conf.
