I just want to give you a huge thanks for this. So much better than any ad blocking app.

This is the best hosts file I've found on the web. I'm curious though - you have blocked many adult tube sites and also some normal sites like www.xolodilnik.ru (russian electronics site). Why did you include these?

All sites which are identified and detected as potential threat to a client is blocked in this hosts file. Sorry for the extreme blocking but Safety first.

You can always edit your hosts file and remove the sites which you think is safe.

Enjoy Safer Android

pardon the noob question but how do I apply these? Do I have to change the file name from zip to some thing else? Or do I just flash it in CWM?

You have to be ROOT (su) to copy the 'hosts' file to '/etc' and '/system/etc' and setting the permissions to 'root:root' and '0444' or 'r-r-r'. Reboot you Android Baby and That It. ENJOY.

Blocking is for:
carrieriq, airpush, leadbolt, tapit, inmobi, adsense, iac and huge list of many more...

Probably most of the Ads are Blocked
