Use Logcat, try to login/download in your app/whatever, inspect the log to find where it wants to go but DNS resolving fails

Enter that domain to Whitelist in AdAway, reboot and try again - there might be it that wants to go to several sites that are blocked, and you must whitelist them all

Great work on the app. Thanks a ton.

Is there any easy way to update the app. I know the definitions do get updated automatically. But since this is not present on the play store, it is very difficult to know when an update is available.

I use F-Droid: https://f-droid.org/en/packages/org.adaway/

Either use F-Droid or follow this thread.

IMHO, this is an app where the user does not suffer if not on the latest and greatest release. It does one thing (very well) and unless an OS update causes problems, you really aren't missing functionality of you are doing to update.

You must make sure that you every week or so force updating of hosts file (AdAway settings).
That has nothing to do with updating of the app itself (don't expect more than few updates of the app during a year)

There is a setting to force auto-pdating of hosts file on every reboot - but you probably don't reboot the phone every day.
There is also a setting to force auro-updating of hosts file every day - but there is a high chance that it won't work as expected

So better, take time like every weekend and force updating of hosts file and then reboot

Question about Regex and IPtables
Hey guys,
I searched the whole thread for "regex" and found only two mentions about it so I decided to put the question on the group.
Question is I tried add an entry on whitelist like *googleadservice.com but the button "apply" grayed out.
So the question is , is Regex is supported ? if yes how is the sintax.
tks

Regex would be great, but alas, no. It is an issue with DNS on phone, it does not accept regex expressions in the hosts file. AdAway can put them in, but it would be confusing when they didn't work. Better to not allow them so there's an indication that they won't work right away.

That's a point I try to solve with the next version. It will bundle a "check for app update" feature that will notify you from app homescreen and allow to check the changelog, download and install the latest version.

Thanks! Again, no update needed until you want some new features or some compatibility improvements. The check for update feature will only display a discrete label that a new version is available. It's up to you to care or not.

I care about not caring about updates.

But seriously, to channel some pertinent thoughts which have come up before regarding updating the app and lists:

AdAway is one of the least needy of apps regarding app updates, and this stands out in a world of updates for the sake of updates.

I install the newest version of Adaway on every device at flash then install the one minimal (AdAway) list and restore 30 or so manually added items. The aforementioned scenario will remain unchanged with no updates for many months on my primary device, over a year on secondary devices, without becoming less effective.

I have admittedly light requirements for the hosts list but even for those who require larger and more recent host entries, updating the list is what you want. No need to get update-happy about the app unless, as mentioned, there is a specific sought-after fix in the works.
