I can't actually... I don't have any way to get to the file, since I'm not rooted.

You should try since you may have read access.

like sonwon suggested, you can still see the file.
I prefer mixplorer for file management. you can try with that (it's not on play store).

Another test is to open this site and see if ads are getting blocked on your phone - https://ads-blocker.com/testing/

Also, Moaab won't cover all ad hosts. it's possible that you are getting ads because they are not blocked in Moaab hosts.If that is case, I will PM you few more zips. try them and see if they block.
