If you use TiBu, copy all three files to your TiBu folder then restore from within the TiBu app. I get no ads in any app, period.

If you'd rather, I could just provide you with the hosts file, but it without the whitelist I've created w/in the app in the TiBu archive, causes certain and particularly frustrating problems.

Do as you wish, just trying to help.

For those getting ads that are already in the blocklist, make sure you have done the following:
1. open Play Store (or supporting Android Market) app
2. press MENU > SETTINGS
3. if the setting Google Admob is checked, uncheck it.

But please, for me (and others), someone verify if this setting should be checked.

Default Not auto updating on ICS?

Is anyone else having a problem of the hosts not auto updating on ICS 4.03? I have the HTC Vivid and they haven't updated themselves the last few times since I upgraded from gingerbread. It works great otherwise as always, haven't seen 1 ad in apps or websites.

My settings are:
✔Check server for updates daily
✔Automatically apply updates

✔Custom IP - 0.0.0.0

Did not block adds anymore! Everything updated, google admob disabled. Even simlink did not work.
Could be since updating to google play?

Any advice?

Thx

Interesting....was wondering why this worked (for you) and you found out/figured it out?? Just trying to understand what this process does to help...

Also, what files are you referring to when you say "all three files"...??

THANKS!
