Hi, AdFree or any other AdBlock app will block minimum of ads but my 'hosts' file has multiple sources for AdBlocking and it also include custom Malware/Spyware domain based on my analysis.

Currently its a manual job to put 'hosts' file into the '/etc' or '/system/etc' using 'RootExplorer' but soon i will publish CWM to make it automated.

Taringa.net is a Hybrid Ad domain, so blocked by default. You can remove it manually by editing the 'hosts' file by yourself.

FYI, your hosts file blocks all Dropbox and Hotfile links, which is a really bad thing for we xda rom/mod flashers.
I love the idea of a giant hosts file but I had to revert to AdFree
Thanks for the work though
