Based on the News that google has removed Ad blocking apps from the play store I figured I'd throw this up so people still can get this great application.
I don't know about the other Ad blocking apps but AdAway has been my favorite for a long time due to its functionality and being open source.

Please go to the Developer's Site where you can donate, get the source, and find other ways of installing. It is available from F-Droid as well. The last version in the Google play store was v2.2. I've compiled from source so this is currently version 2.9.1 (latest in source). You can look at the source or the app itself for the changelog.

File any bugs here. This is not a bug thread for the app.

The files below are labeled with a date. Any builds will have all commits through that date included with them. Check the source for what that includes. (It may be hard to visually notice any difference so if you go to about page I added a "Compiled on Date" so you can verify exactly which build date you have installed.)

Dev Build: No Dev Build

The 3.x adaway builds only support 4.1 (JellyBean) or greater android versions. If you have an older version please use the 2.9.2 version.

AdAway v3.0
(compiled from source on Apr-09-2015, signed and zipaligned)
Big Thanks to @Lozone for his material design work.

AdAway v2.9.2
(compiled from source on Oct-13-2014, signed and zipaligned)
Big Thanks to @DavisNT for his pull requests to make this happen.

Problems? Read this:
* if you use Chrome and still see ads on web pages, remember to disable the "data saver" or "reduced data usage" browser option
* check your APN settings for any proxy, the proxy itself could be allowing ads. Disable the proxy.
* after you install or make any change to AdAway, you must reboot for those changes to take effect

Please go to the Developer's Site where you can donate, get the source, and find other ways of installing. It is available from F-Droid but I didn't want to install that just for this. Plus as of today the lastest version on F-droid and what was last in the Google play store was v2.2. I've compiled from source so this is version 2.3 (latest in source). You can look at the source or the app itself for the changelog.

Download: AdAway v2.3

thanks

No problem, I'll keep this updated as changes are made to source. Also in case anyone is wondering it is signed and zipaligned.

Re: [APP] [UNOFFICIAL] AdAway v2.3
For those who already have play store one installed, this one won't install over. Application signature doesn't match. Not that hard to solve. Just uninstall the old one and install this one.

EDIT: Now it installed over when I updated from version 2.1... Weird. Also it didn't detect root when I clean installed. I think my phone is just being weird.

Yes, correct. It should not install over. Uninstall your play store version and then install this.

That's what I did. I uploaded a good and working app. Ad free isn't open source so I can't build it's latest version. Clearly you don't understand that. If you want adfree go download it somewhere else as this thread is just for adaway.
