I doubt that it's possible. And as @PerfectSlayer calls it a "fallback method for non-rooted users" on Twitter my personal assumption is that he's going to implement a VPN method into AdAway for non-rooted users while rooted users are still able to edit the hosts file. At least I hope latter is true, as my VPN is already block by OpenVPN to the Raspberry Pi in our home network.
Regarding Private DNS and VPN blocking mode:
Mayby the devs of Blockada know a way. I believe they have the same problem.
And thx that you offer the root method parallel to the vpn method in the next version. So every user can decide which method he prefers.
(I will remain with root method because i don't want to sacrifice the private dns).
It's on my todo list to forward VPN intercepted DNS requests to a custom private DNS (chosen by user from settings).
The only limitation is you will have to disable it from Android preference as I don't want to intercept and break secure DNS requests then enable it in AdAway.
Im on the latest build and update regularly but some ads are slipping through on certain apps. For example I use seetv (old phone cam app) and ads break through all the time, but are Google add while webpage ads are consistently blocked.
What can cause this? I can't figure it out.
OnePlus 7t, rooted running Android 10 and I have selected systemless on both magisk and adawa.
Search feature times out for me so I'm sorry if it's been asked before.
