Default (Guide) How to use AdAway to update CrossBreeder's master file.

Hi CrossBreeder users.
This question often comes up in the CrossBreeder forum so I decided to put together a quick tutorial.

Once CrossBreeder is installed, you can update CrossBreeder's master (hosts) file by following these few steps;

1) Open AdAway app.
2) Select the menu button then preferences...
3) From the menu select "Target hosts file" then "Custom target"
4) From the menu select "Custom target" , type in /system/etc/CrossBreeder/dnrd_root/master then press OK.
5) If you would like automatic AdAway updates, check off the following;
a) "Check for updates daily"
b) "Automatic update"
c) "Update only on WiFi." This selection is optional.

6) Return to the main screen.
7) Select "Download file and apply ad blocking"
8) Select "NO" to Symlink missing!!!
9) Close app, you're done!

If you later wish to update manually, repeat steps 1, 7 through 9. Automatic updates appear not to work when the Symlink is missing.

(Please totally disregard the "Disabled" and "Simlink Missing" banners . We are using AdAway only to update our master file. We are not using AdAway to block ads, hence the message.)

May I suggest you change your title to remove the "?" And put "guide" ?
Your thread title appears to be a question and not a guide.
Like this:
"(Guide) How to use adaway..."

Well that's what the OP says, right? I mean he wouldn't type it if it wasn't the case. As long as you do EXACTLY as the instructions state, you'll be fine.

Go to https://f-droid.org/repository/browse/?fdid=org.adaway then click "download apk" or download fdroid and install it from there to get updates.
