I just redownloaded Adaway and it appears to be doing it's job without any hiccups. My question here is there are some checkboxes under Preferences that I really need to know if they should be checked or not. I am under the 10 post limit so I can't ask where I got the link to use and their tutorial came up short on Preference settings. If anyone knows which boxes to check for normal usage and whether or not Adaway needs to be restarted after every update would be a big help to me and other users. Should all boxes be checked under preferences ? and if not which ones? Does Adaway need to be rebooted after an update?

The device does not need to be rebooted after updating the hosts file, however it is recommended. With regards to the preferences menu, I only have the option "check for updates on boot" checked. You don't need the other options checked unless ad blocking doesn't work for you and you need an alternative method to diagnose the issue.
