Good thing is its open source and the developer will still update it. So as long as that happens I'll compile from source and side load it, no big deal there.

Big thanks.

I personally can't stand ads in apps. I'd rather buy a Pro/Ad-free version of an app than be bombarded with ads.

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 but I didn't want to install that just for this. The last version 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.

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

Good call on continuing the app. I posted about the news when it came out (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2189419), but I'm glad people like you know how to compile quickly. I was going to do it, but you beat me to it. Thanks.

Thanks for this. I read about Google's actions and I had already downloaded the new version. But thanks for telling the XDA community. This is THE BEST ad blocking app.

This may sound like a stupid question. But how do I install it? I just downloaded Adaway-release.apk from the OP directly to my downloads folder on my rooted Note 2. When I clicked on the file, I see "Cancel" and "Install". If I click on the "Install" button, nothing happens.

I already enabled the "Unknown sources" option on Jellybean 4.1.1 stock rooted ROM. My phone passed all the RootValidator tests:

After you clicked install, and you say it did nothing, did you get the "installed" message after? It should just install like any other app. You should see it in your app drawer as a stop sign with a dove on it instead of the letters S T O P.

It literally did nothing when I clicked on the Install button. It acted as if that button was disabled. Although the button looked like I could be able to click it. It was never installed.. so, its not in my app drawer or in the list of "All apps" in the app manager.

Use "ES file Explorer" from Google play store to install this.
