Hi all,

That's not one but two updates here!
First, I wanted to address the blocking issue for the stable release. So I fixed timezone issues in source update and a crash in DNS log UI with Lollipop.
Then I keep improving the V5. I spend a lot of time to test the work manager and its periodic work. It should be better right now.
There is also a bunch of important bug fixes, like redirections in hosts file and the removal of disabled source hosts.

Feedback:

I often see "Up-to-date for - xx minutes"
(yeah that's a minus sign).
When that happens, if I update and reboot, the soft still thinks there is an update available when in fact not.
I'm currently in Paris, GMT+2 (Daylight Saving Time is active, otherwise winter time is GMT+1).

The build is available.

For example in the main menu labeled as "Show Custom Entry List" and there we could add/remove entries as in the past (and without the need to change search filter everytime).

Then it would clear where the user finds it and he sees them with one single tap (instead of four as atm).

I did a full rework of this part. This activity become searchable and include a search field like many Google Apps.
There is also a quick toggle to include / exclude hosts from sources. You can even use it while searching.
The search popup is gone, it should be more faster to use this part of the app.
Have a look to the capture and tell me what you think about it

When a VPN is enabled the app doesn't backup any files as it doesn't recognize a WiFi connection then. @PerfectSlayer are you planning a function to deselect apps from the VPN function like in Adguard and DNS66?
Or is there a workaround at the moment for that photos app?

Thanks for the heads up ! There is a way to exclude user app from settings. Is backup working if you exclude Google Photos?

Same thing for system app. You can exclude them from settings. Does it fix anything?

Hi PerfectSlayer,

Thanks for this 5.0.2 update

Minor issue:
French "Support Project" page is too big

Everything else is working fine here

Ah, that's why 5.02 won't parse: minSDKVersion=26
I'm on Nougat (which is 25).

Why does this version targets Android 8+ Oreo only?

Like the v4, v5 is expected to offer support for latest devices.
Android 8 and above represent more than 60% of device distribution and will grew through time.
If you use an older device, root solutions work very well and v4 is here for you (like v2 and v3 stayed for legacy devices).

Sorry if I'm a bit slow in the head, maybe it's because I'm on miui for a few days now but where in setting I can exclude apps from using a VPN? Or what permission has to be revoked?
Anyway, thanks for the update! If there wouldn't be Viper4Android I would think about to not root the first device in my life.


Edit: I knew I would find it shortly after posting here!
Settings of Adaway...
Sorry.
Will report if it helps.

Edit2: Works definitely for Photos backup and Playstore at the moment, I have to say that Playstore was working from time to time but it seems problems are fixed. Thanks a lot!

Whenever hosts are being updated, allowed lists become empty in 5.0.x betas.

-No such problem with stable releases
-Using root based ad blocker
-Tried both "Apply allowed hosts from sources" on and off and updated hosts
-Ad blocking works perfectly in any releases
