Right, I've been working my socks off for a couple of hours and have finally managed to come up with a temporary solution to the Server Status: undefined problem.

This temporary solution will help you if you are on a university network that uses a web proxy to filter outgoing traffic (in my case, Lancaster), and the new RADS launcher is giving you trouble.

Step 1 - Grab the required software

  1. Your Freedom
  2. Proxifier

Note that you will require an account on Your Freedom for this to work, they have a free account, and that is all you'll need.
Also, for Proxifier you'll need to get the trial version, which only lasts for 31 days. Hopefully the launcher will be fixed properly by the time that runs out.

Step 2 - Set up your freedom
Install Your Freedom and follow the set up wizard, it's relitively straight forward. When it asks you to put in some proxy settings, you need to put in the settings for your university, whatever they may be.
Eventually you'll be asked to sign in, and select the Your Freedom server you'd like to use (generally this should be the server at the top of the list).

That should be Your Freedom sorted, just leave it running in the background for now.

Step 3 - Set up Proxifier

Load up Proxifier and go to Profile --> Proxy Servers. Click "Add" on the right hand side and type "localhost" in the first box, and "1080" in the second. Select "SOCKS Version 5" and click OK, then OK again.
Now go to Profile --> Proxification Rules. Go to the right hand side of the "Default", and click to change the action to "Direct". Click OK if any warning boxes come up.
Now click "Add", name the rule something suitable, click "browse" and select the following file:
<LoL install path>\lol.launcher.exe

Click OK, then click browse again and select:
<LoL install path>\RADS\system\rads_user_kernel.exe
followed by:
<LoL install path>\RADS\projects\lol_launcher\releases\0.0.0.21 \deploy\lollauncher.exe
(This last one won't always be in "0.0.0.21", depending on future patches)

Click OK, go down to "Action", and select the proxy setting you just set up from the drop down list.

That should be proxifier set up.

Step 4 - Connect to the Your Freedom server
Go back to Your Freedom, and click the "Start Connection" button. After a few seconds you should see an open door (without an excamation mark) on the right hand side.

Step 5 - Launch the game
Now, with Proxifier and Your Freedom still running in the background, launch League of Legends. It should now show "Online", as long as the servers are actually online, and you should be able to log in as normal.
Once you're logged in, I recommend you shut down Your Freedom, since the free accounts have a time limit on how much you can use their servers each day.

Enjoy!

EDIT: I've had a chance to test it now, worked fine. Hopefully Riot will sort out the proxy settings in the mean time.

Thank u mate. Works fine for me, same Uni, so I was sure it's ok. Hope that Riot will make somthing with it, cuz i don't really want to buy proxifier license for just one game.
Thanks one more time. GJ

it worked yesterday, now proxifier says:
Could not connect to localhost:1080
No connection could be made because the target computer actively refused it.
Check your network connection and make sure that the proxy server address and port are correct.
Also the error may indicate that the proxy server is down
EDIT:
i changed the proxy server on YF and now it works

Is there any chance you could look at how to install the game afresh using this technique? I've been having some issues with it. Adding the downloaded leagueoflegends.exe to proxifer during step 3 initiates it, but it hangs up during 'installing pando media booster'.

Stringas,

This solution was for another problem, the server is down at the moment.. They are running some tests and they should probably be up within 30 minutes now!

After that , i just couldnt log in. With this guide, i can start a game, go to champ select, lock in, but just before loading screen i get an "unable to connect" error. Any ideas?
