How To: Listen to Pandora Radio Outside the US
If you live outside the US, and you want to join the following of Pandora Radio, XDA forum member GlobaL_TroTTer has posted a guide on how to do this.

The end result is that you will run Pandora through Orbot and be able to listen to Pandora outside of the US!
For full instructions, head on over to the tutorial thread.
