You find the answer when you click on the link, nevermind for asking

Go to Energized Protection, there you can find packages of your choice (hosts merged from various sources, incl. also from sbc.io)

You can choose in which format you want (take hosts txt) - and all are hosted by https

Recently I installed Pixel Experience 10 (Android Q), together with Magisk 20.1. Downloaded Adaway 4.3.0 but failed to apply the host file. It worked when I was using Pie. Is it a known issue with Q?

Edit: Enabled Systemless mode in Magisk and now I can patch host file with AdAway.

Had the same problem here, i just installed LineageOS 17 on my pixel sailfish - since that, ublock is not working any more, as the host file cannot be installed.

But enabling Systemless mode in Magisk made it work again. Thanks for the hint!

Is there any way one can block those google search ads, which always appear at the top? See image for reference:

uBlock Origin on Firefox or other browsers that support it like kiwi browser.

That's not true for Google search ads. I have Steven Black list in Adaway and if you take a look on my last post ( https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...753&p=81218005 )
these ads are blocked with Firefox and uBlock Origin but not with Chrome on the same device.

As @Wolfcity says, you need a different solution for this ads. A DNS blocker like Adaway can not block things that don't go through your device's DNS. Those Google ads do not - they have a vested interest

There are other options as well as the ublock origin browser plug-in. My preference is to use DuckDuckGo search instead of Google.

For Chrome you need few more steps in Chrome, then AdAway will perfectly block ads:
