[Q] Hosts file being overwritten?
Many others besides myself seem to have an issue where adfree/adaway don't seem to work.
I tried manually replacing my hosts file in /etc with esfile (root explorer enabled and system mounted R/W). However after rebooting, my hosts file seems to have changed back to the default one.
The steps I took:
- Pasted edited hosts file into /system/etc/. (I'm rooted so no errors so far)
- Changed permissions to rw-r-r
And after the reboot the my larger hosts file seems to have been replaced with some default one.
I'm currently using MyRom, but I've tired checking any setting that would interfere with this. I've also tried a fresh install of MyRom and this still happens. I think other people may have similar problems with adfree/adaway because of a similar issue. I'm thinking about reverting to stock and trying it again?
