Yeah, I think you're right about it perhaps being app related. I think maybe I need to monitor it a bit more closely and take random notes...
like sometimes I'm bombarded with advertisments any time I touch to advance or go back through menus...but just in that app...then I'll reboot...and sometimes it'll go a full day without ads...?

I also use a local news app which would normally advertise dating links, but those don't seem to appear...so it's definitely working.

All good though...thanks for answering that for me!
Much appreciated!!!

Thanks so much for this info Mantelinho, I had been looking for a solution. When using this 1st method, do I need to flash symlink_hosts_to_data.zip in recovery after every ROM flash? I.e., I'm dirty-flashing CyanogenMod nightlies every other day or so and I'm not sure if need to re-create the symlink after every flash.

edit: I have discovered I DO need to flash symlink_hosts_to_data.zip after every ROM flash.

Sorry to bump an old thread. Will this work on the new M8 variant of the One, or will it only work on the M7 variant?

Hi, is this guide specific for the HTC One? Or would it perhaps work on my HTC One S too?
