Cleared data in magisk manager and adaway, no change, adaway is not in the superuser list.
Thanks guys for the quick reply

It shouldn't matter, but is your Magisk manager hidden? Hidden with a custom name? What device, android version?

Some devices have trouble with broadcasts that affect Magisk granting root. Are the apps that do have root from before a Magisk update? Was MM hidden before a Magisk update?

Try toggling Magisk hide off then on. Try the canary build of Magisk. Make sure to use the corresponding MM.

Try reading the OP and wiki then search the thread to know why and what can be done.

Instead of guessing at hosts sources, you can use DNS logging. In your case, you want to blacklist.

As alluded to in the previous post, there are apps and websites that serve ads without going through the device DNS. In a case like that, there is nothing hosts blocking can do. Here is the main link to the Adaway wiki. Reading through it will probably help you understand better.

Hi all,

Quick question about the next version: who is really using the custom location and symlink feature?
This feature allows you to select another location to install hosts file and check there is an effective symlink from /system/etc/hosts to this location.

As Magisk tends to be the primary way of rooting its device, it does no more seems useful.
As the hosts file is no more stored on /system partition, there is no more free space partition issue to require to use symlink.

Please share any feedback on this feature because I am evaluating its removal. Thanks!

NOTE: It is planned for the V5. So if you still need this feature for some older devices on very rare use cases, V4 will still be available. V5 is dedicated to the latest versions of Android where Magisk seems to rule the rooting community.

No need for this in my case; I use the systemless mode with magisk since I've installed AdAway...

Personally, I'm happy with its removal.

Rather than hundreds of responses - those who want it to be removed - hit 'thanks' / 'thumbs up' button to this post

I am happy for it to be REMOVED
