AdAway

Block advertisements
Version: 3.3
Added: 17-10-2011
Updated: 19-03-2018

An ad blocker that uses the hosts file. 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.

Requires root: Yes. The hosts files is located in /system which is normally read-only.
