On my adaway app, i can get to downloading the hostfiles but it always fails and hangs when it trys to apply the new host files. I am rooted and permissions are granted. Anyone have this issue or a solution?

Use a root enabled file explorer, go to /system/etc and change the permission of "hosts" to rw-rw-rw.

Reboot and try again.

I installed AdFree without issue. Might wanna try that if you can't get adaway going.

It actually has nothing to do with permissions. It runs as root, so permissions are irrelevant.
The problem is with SuperSU's toast notifications. Set them to off for the AdAway app and it'll work right every time.
