Most of the Android users using Adfree(requires Root) to block unwanted ads..
Highly recommended app for Rooted Users

If you have root, why bother installing an app, you can instead, just flash over an updated hosts file...

MoAB is good but it's a huge file and frankly I don't see the difference.
It also isn't updated frequently, so you may see ads slipping in.
By using an app like AdAway you can add hosts sources which are up-to-date.
Also, you can build your own list easily in apps like AdAway and if you want you can directly add the to-be -blocked IP address to the hosts file.
You can't do all this if you simply flash a hosts file.
