Thanks for the info. Glad it isn't just me seeing this issue.
It seems pretty random though. I've attempted to disable Adaway directly after a boot, but most of the time it will just fail, but sometimes it takes a long time and then completes...
This is kinda driving me insane, because other root apps (Ex: Titanium Backup) seem to work fine. Maybe just a flaw with Adaway?
