I am having trouble activating AdAway 3.2 on Nougat 7.1.2 on a N5X. I checked the "systemless" option in settings, it asked me to change the source to /data/data/hosts, so I did, then it asked me if I wanted to create a symlink, I said yes, and it said it couldn't create it :S. It is supposed to work this way right? What am I doing wrong? Using SuperSU 2.82 SR5.
I'm using SuperSU 2.82 SR5 (systemless), and yes, I have given root permissions (and supersu log says so). Without systemless option it doesn't work either :S
Edit: after some reboots, after asking to create the symlink it seems to work (at least shows the green ok sign and says that files have been applied). However every time I try to update the file with new hots, it says that there is not a symlink and that it needs to create one. Again and again, is this normal?
Hi, thanks for your reply. I don't know what is the sbin mode (I've been away from Android for a long while... maybe something new ?). FYI, I rooted using what appears to be very new Chainfire CFAR method (downloading from desktop.firmware.mobi)... maybe it comes from there ! I also discovered Magisk which seems very interesting, but didn't tried for now...
Yes it's new. Default mode for Oreo. Optional for Nougat.
What are the contents of:
/su/su.d and /su/etc
There should be an adaway script in su.d and a hosts file in etc. The script should consist of a bind mount command mounting the hosts file in /su/etc over the one in /system/etc
(If those directories don't exist then just answer which of the following exist:
|ad block, adaway, adblock, adblocker, source|
