An ad blocker that uses the hosts file. The hosts file contains a list of mappings between hostnames and IP addresses. When an app requests an ad, that request is directed to 127.0.0.1 which does nothing. There are options to run a web server to respond to blocked hostnames and to direct requests to the IP address of your choosing. You can download hosts files from the app but it is possible to use your own and to add certain sites to the white- and black-lists.

========= Advantages =========
  • No background processes
  • Using less space than app (file size: ~7kb)

========= Requirements =========
  • Busybox v1.24.1(Recommended stericsons busybox HERE)
  • Minimal ~5MB free space on system partition for hosts file

How to use

1. Download adblocker.pdf from Android File Host
2. Remove .pdf extension
3. Copy adblocker file to /system/bin
4. Set permissions to 755
5. Open terminal and type
Code:
su
adblocker

If you have issues, download paypal app from playstore, that will work :)
For US users:
"I could not use your paypal donation link or url as you already know as it's not possible to send a donation from USA. I logged into my paypal account and used the option to pay for goods or services to send you the funds."

Thanks a lot, guys

You're modifying hosts file right ?

There are 4 sources you used. All of them having same adresses to block. (They are not 100% same but they are having same sites to block.)

So there are double even triple entries on hosts file which causes slow downs & lags.

Yes, modifying hosts for sure.

If you check source code on GitHub you will see that script by it self remove double lines, also remove empty lines and add one empty at the end of a file ;)
