That's a mirror (with like 4 hosts added) of: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/St...s/master/hosts (copy this link and put it in NetGuard)

Thanks, it worked as you said However, it disabled the firewall, and I had to manually enable it. I am on 2.5 and it may have changed in the next updates.

Note that providing a hosts file download is a free service on best effort basis.

Why not host it on GitHub as the apk ?

Because the referenced hosts file is updated regularly and I don't want to update it each time as well.

You must first enable Traffic filtering option.

Don't lose faith. I love your app and want to thank you for all your efforts. It's always easiest for people to exaggerate the negative than be thankful for the positives, that's just human nature. I can assure you there's lots of people that are thankful for what you've done for us all so...thank you!

Where, here ? Oh, well, if they're not there do ignore them.

Or atleast ignore those without a logcat.

The GitHub issues and the comments here are not really the problem. Because Google does not protect the privacy of developers at all, the Play store lists my email address (and even my physical address, although I have yet to receive love letters), so a lot of people email me, often like "add this feature or I will rate one star" or "it doesn't work, fix it [fill in curse]" (yes, people are often rude). Even worse is that Google dictates that I should answer.

Speaking about the ratings, the decreasing of the average Play store rating of NetGuard has accelerated lately, which means the average rating may be below that of the other no root firewalls within a month.
