Which orWall? I found this project:

https://github.com/EthACKdotOrg/orWall

This project is unmaintained, so maybe it is not a good idea to use it.

As long as the app is not based on the Android VPN service it will likely work.

Something seems to be wrong. I don't think, the Irobot app really contacted tinder and stocard:

I have a lot of apps with strange entries in the log. And those apps only seem to work properly, when I give permission to this strange requests. That leads me to the assumption, that the just the label of the request is wrong, but the request was done on the app, where it is listed.

I have the newest version 2.276 from Github, but had this already in earlier versions.

The request is served by a server, in this case Amazon CloudFront, that serves at least 8 other domain names too.
The domain name might be used by another app too, but the resolved IP address is the same and since it is not possible to know which domain name belong to which app due to the way Android works, this is the result.

Is there a way to quickly append and unappend a hosts file? I couldn't find an intent for this.

Right now the only way to unappend is to download the main hosts file every time.

No, there isn't.
