SuperSU Notification tweak fixes it
Disabling the notification in SuperSU worked for me as well.

Thanks for the note.

Permission rewritten on reboot
Changing the permissions for the hosts file worked great but the permissions get reset back to the original ones after a reboot. Is there any way to prevent them from being rewritten?

I applied to the letter the tutorial using FX Explorer. The permissions are applied correctly and stuck even after rebooting. However, AdAway still fails to update the hosts file. I have a Lenovo P780, with KingUser (as rooting app), Jelly Bean 4.2.1. What else can I try?
