Hey,

since 14.3.A.0.757 I can't get AdAway to work. It hangs everytime on "activating...".
Does someone have this problem too?
Or does someone know how to fix it?

rooted and unlocked bootloader.
I copied the hosts file manually now but it's really annoying.

I stop using adaway once I found THIS. I flash the ZIP in CWM and no need adaway, however you could also replace the host file and use adaway/ adblock if you prefer.

The same in .681 - AdAway doesn't work, even after installing that R/W-fix.

Any ideas?

Installing the fix didn't work for me either, 757 NO. I think that it only is for 4.3 as it says...

Edit: Now it works, took about 5mins to install.
