This simply is the DIY method.

Yes I like to know how things work under the hood too. But it did seem orignally this thread was providing a more complete hosts files than AdFree. I guess that's not the case anymore. Thanks for the explanation.

Hello,

this makes me crazy. I tried to remount the filesystem rw, no output error so I guess it's ok.
But each time I try to copy the hosts file within the /etc, it gives me a "out of memory" error.

Anyone got a clue?


Thanks,
nico

Hi, I'm facing the 'Paste Failure: There was not enough free disk space to complete the paste operation. Please note that the free space displayed by Root Explorer (as reported by linux) is not always 100% accurate!' problem, i tried to delete the hosts file inside the system/etc but each time after i deleted and tried to paste the new hosts file, it said the hosts file already exist (the hosts file will auto generated no matter how many times i tried to delete), how weird... :|

any solution? thanks

Hello. Isn't there any update for this huge /etc/hosts file ?
I realized many ads are escaping the localhost jail.
How could I track, catch & report them ?
Any netstat logger ?

Thank you very much

Read back a bit of posts... I asked the same thing, it's not an easy process.

Hasn't changed. Either you push the hosts file yourself or install adfree as mentioned in the first post or so, it is on the market..

You still have to have root.
AT&T LG G2 - 4.3, AOKP
Samsung Note i717 - 4.2.2, Unofficial AOKP
Nexus 7 Wifi 2012 - 4.4.2, Stock Rooted (m-kernel)
Try my Alternative XDA CSS Themes (including 2010!)
