[HOWTO] Block Airpush ads
Today i am going to teach you how to block Airpush ads that appear on the notification bar.
-> Terminal emulator (Search Play store)
-> Basic knowledge of terminal commands (echo, mount, etc.)
Ok, so you've got root. If you don't, root your phone.
1.) Go to the Play Store and search "Android terminal emulator" and click install. Wait for it to finish installing.
2.) Go to the app.
3.) Type in "su" to get root access
(Don't type in the $ and # symbols just only "su")
Now you have root access.
4.) Remount /system as r/w
mount -o remount,rw /system
5.) Add Airpush ad server hostname to hosts file
echo "127.0.0.1 api.airpush.com" >> /system/etc/hosts
6.) Remount /system as r/o
mount -o remount,ro /system
7.) Reboot device
And you're done! No more ads on your notification bar!
