I don't know about the other Ad blocking apps but AdAway has been my favorite for a long time.
Please go to the Developer's Site where you can donate, get the source, and find other ways of installing. It is available from F-Droid but I didn't want to install that just for this. Plus as of today the lastest version on F-droid and what was last in the Google play store was v2.2. I've compiled from source so this is version 2.3 (latest in source). You can look at the source or the app itself for the changelog.

Download: AdAway v2.3

thanks

No problem, I'll keep this updated as changes are made to source. Also in case anyone is wondering it is signed and zipaligned.

Re: [APP] [UNOFFICIAL] AdAway v2.3
For those who already have play store one installed, this one won't install over. Application signature doesn't match. Not that hard to solve. Just uninstall the old one and install this one.

EDIT: Now it installed over when I updated from version 2.1... Weird. Also it didn't detect root when I clean installed. I think my phone is just being weird.

Yes, correct. It should not install over. Uninstall your play store version and then install this.

That's what I did. I uploaded a good and working app. Ad free isn't open source so I can't build it's latest version. Clearly you don't understand that. If you want adfree go download it somewhere else as this thread is just for adaway.
