Have you checked in AdAway Settings where it looks for the local target hosts file (proper path depends on your ROM) - and have you checked by AdAway and/or from like MiXPlorer the content of hosts file (is it almost empty by default or is it filled)?
Also, from AdAway Hosts section in Settings, check from which on-line hosts source files it reads, and e.g. when it was last updated from (some of the old hosts sources are dead and some have moved from http to https)
Eg, I'm using the following hosts sources:
Sorry for the super late reply! I checked out the hosts file like you said and it is filled with quite a bit of text. Here are the hosts sources listed in settings:
I also tried uninstalling and then reinstalling Adaway 4.3 before checking the above settings. No dice
This is wrong.
A few older devices could get away without a reboot, but the only way to force the hosts file update to apply is to reboot.
On the chance that you are talking about clearing the recent apps, that will not have an effect of clearing the Java DNS cache which is why a reboot is required.
