Yeah, I was wrong about that. The system partition is writable after S-off.

I also have s-off, uninstalled weak sauce, then flashed through CWM supersu.zip for full root, reboot. Downloaded latest AdAway apk found here on xda forum. I then ran apk file from my download folder, hit install. Open AdAway, click on Download fiels and apply add blocking. Now it just gets stuck on Applying... with the circle going around and around for over 15 minutes straight now! Yes i gave root access when asked. Is this normal?

Nevermind. Closed app, then reopened and it did the download thing like normal. Now says successful and applied hosts sources: 4/4.

So i'm good to go now? Does this need reboot like prompted?

You don't NEED to, but it is recommended.

This is the one app causing me problems. Adfree works problem free, but AdAway likes to keep getting stuck on "Applying...". I've got it to succeed once or twice by force closing and re-trying, but it's not reliable. I'm S-off, CWM recovery, SuperSU, and the modded kernel with RW permissions. What gives? :?

EDIT: Even tried installing Adaway as system app, problem still persists...???

EDIT2: Finally got it working. Noticed in the OP in the xda thread that there is a modded version to fix problem. All good

Don't need to reboot. I never have and it works fine.

I had to install the unsecure boot image in order for AdAway to work properly. Otherwise it just hangs on applying host files.

From what I understand, just because you're s-off still doesn't mean you have full write access. The stock kernel has the write protection modules built in.

Flashing the unsecure boot image fixed all issues I was having and I'm pretty sure if you're still having problems, flashing that will help

I'm not disputing whether or not s-off provides full write access. But, I was able to install AdAway with full functionality without installing the unsecure stock kernel. It takes a while to download all the data and install it though (maybe 5 minutes or so?). Then, I rebooted and it's working very well. No more ads!
