Based on the News that google has removed Ad blocking apps from the play store I figured I'd throw this up so people still can get this great application.
I don't know about the other Ad blocking apps but AdAway has been my favorite for a long time due to its functionality and being open source.

Please go to the Developer's Site where you can donate, get the source, find other ways of installing, and learn more about how AdAway works.
"AdAway is a utility for root users used to help manage hostfile entries. AdAway doesn't directly block ads; it limits unwanted ads by blocking servers that distribute those ads to websites."
It is available from F-Droid as well. The last version in the Google play store was v2.2. I've compile from source any time there are any significant changes. You can look at the source or the app itself for the changelog or commit history.

File any bugs here.

The files below are labeled with a date. Any builds will have all commits through that date included with them. Check the source for what that includes. (It may be hard to visually notice any difference so if you go to about page I added a "Compiled on Date" so you can verify exactly which build date you have installed.)

Available on XDA LABS
The best way to get AdAway now and stay updated on latest stable or beta builds is via the XDA Labs app.
::: AdAway on XDA Labs :::
This will have the latest versions just like this OP always will.

Dev Build: AdAway-release_Build-Feb.08.2017.apk :: shasum = afd98e50d9892e6f7d28e83864768e876f689feb

The 3.x AdAway builds only support 4.1 (JellyBean) or greater Android versions. If you are running an older release of Android please use the 2.9.2 version.

AdAway v3.2 :: shasum = 24ccdfd54c92c5c382d2f587a94e3e921b933fee
(compiled from source on Nov-19-2016, signed and zipaligned)

AdAway v2.9.2
(compiled from source on Oct-13-2014, signed and zipaligned)
Big Thanks to @DavisNT for his pull requests to make this happen.

For systemless root support
-- Use a 3.2 or later AdAway version. Just go to preferences and select the systemless checkbox. Big thanks to @PerfectSlayer
Problems? Read this:
* if you use Chrome and still see ads on web pages, remember to disable the "data saver" or "reduced data usage" browser option
* check your APN settings for any proxy, the proxy itself could be allowing ads. Disable the proxy.
* after you install or make any change to AdAway, you must reboot for those changes to take effect
* If you are still having issues please read and understand all the info in the AdAway Wiki before asking for help here.
* 1 known issue on android 6.0 regarding import / export

Please go to the Developer's Site where you can donate, get the source, and find other ways of installing. It is available from F-Droid but I didn't want to install that just for this. Plus as of today the lastest version on F-droid and what was last in the Google play store was v2.2. I've compiled from source so this is version 2.3 (latest in source). You can look at the source or the app itself for the changelog.

Download: AdAway v2.3

thanks

Re: [APP] [UNOFFICIAL] AdAway v2.3
For those who already have play store one installed, this one won't install over. Application signature doesn't match. Not that hard to solve. Just uninstall the old one and install this one.

EDIT: Now it installed over when I updated from version 2.1... Weird. Also it didn't detect root when I clean installed. I think my phone is just being weird.

Yes, correct. It should not install over. Uninstall your play store version and then install this.

That's what I did. I uploaded a good and working app. Ad free isn't open source so I can't build it's latest version. Clearly you don't understand that. If you want adfree go download it somewhere else as this thread is just for adaway.
