Hello.

My brother was given a tablet from his school. It comes with restrictions, so i'm trying to bypass them.

The main problem is about websites. I was able to root the tablet and delete the apks which were installed by the school but still there are some websites I cannot connect. Twitter, facebook, youtube etc. are blocked. I've checked the "20-dns.conf" file but there are no signs of restrictions there.

Any thoughts on from which file these website restrictions come from? It is in the system obviously, but it seems like i am not able to find it. I'd be grateful if you could help me.

Thanks.

Since you have rooted it.. and I guess you also have a Custom recovery, Try to flash a New rom if available.

Are you sure your tablet block the site? Or your country?
Have you try app at play store, just search with tag"vpn unlimited", for example"surfeasy vpn for android" ...

I am sure it is the tablet. There is no block on my Android phone or on my pc. I am familiar with vpn apps but i don't want to use them since they really decrease your internet speed.
