  • Is it disabled after a reboot?
  • Does your hosts file revert to default after a reboot?
  • Does it only block some ads?
  • Does it block ads only in some applications but not others?
  • Does it only fail to update its source files?
  • etc.
  • For each of the above that applies, what exact error, if any, do you see?

I won't be able to address as many questions on here as I used to, but the above points will help anybody give you proper advice, and without that information you'll only get guesses at best. Alternatively, you could search this thread or the FAQ where your answers are probably already posted...

There isn't any problem as such you mentioned. It is installing, the host files are all there, it stays enabled and all free apps are popping up ads which used to be blocked without any trouble in Cyanogen OS 12. However, I just moved to AICP last night, the problem there was, I was using both inbuilt add blocker and adaway, which was maybe conflicting with each other, so disabled the inbuilt add blocker, kept adaway enabled, and working like charm, I have noted down the link which was shared by another user for capturing logcat, once I move back to Cyanogen OS 12.1 I will post it. I went across couple of posts in Reddit as well where people were talking about adaway not working on COS12.1, maybe cyanogen inc is pushing ad some other way than conventional ? However I understand none of these speculations are useful without proper logs.

Apparently, the only problem was that &^%$ builtin "adblocker" which effectively acted like a proxy. Disabling it (or even uninstalling it altogether) is the correct course of action. LIfe is good!

There was discussion between AICP and Exodus devs about blacklisting Adaway and other ad blockers. Maybe they already started. Their built-in adblocker was a joke anyway.

For the gazillionth time, a reminder that "AdAway" is not an "ad blocker". It's merely a tool to facilitate the use of Android's builtin local DNS resolution method (editing the hosts file). AdAway doesn't "block" anything that couldn't be similarly "blocked" without AdAway. It would be very difficult to respect any misguided or misinformed developer who might think otherwise.

I mentioned in an earlier post that AdAway's menu isn't accessible on Android TV devices running Android 5.1 or higher. This hasn't been much of an issue so far but now I'm noticing that the MLB.TV app on the Nexus Player does not load videos when AdAway's hosts file is in use. I cannot access the "Log DNS Requests" function to figure out what needs to be whitelisted. If AdAway can be updated to meet Google's full material design specs, then its menu should be visible on Android TV running Android 5.1 and higher.
