AdAway

AdAway is an ad blocker that uses the hosts file to block ads directly on Android phone. It blocks all advertisements in apps, games, browser or even YouTube! The hosts file contains a list of mappings between hostnames and IP addresses. When an app requests an ad, that request is directed to 127.0.0.1 which does nothing. There are options to run a web server to respond to blocked hostnames and to direct requests to the IP address of your choosing. You can download hosts files from the app but it is possible to use your own and to add certain sites to the white- and black-lists.

Also, it requires root. The hosts files is located in /system which is normally read-only.

What’s New?

  • Systemless root support – extensive work by PerfectSlayer
  • Improvements to root mounter – by sanjay900
  • Translations updates
  • Various updates for support on Android 7.x
