For all who want to try F-Droid to install AdAway
1- Install SuperSu Stable on rooted phone : For stability use : http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1538053. But, if the stable SuperSu don't work, you can try beta one : http://forum.xda-developers.com/apps/supersu/2014-09-02-supersu-v2-05-t2868133
2- Install F-Droid : https://f-droid.org/FDroid.apk (if it don't work, refer to following note)
3- From F-Droid, search and install AdAway.



Note : Make sure your Android is set to allow app installations from unknown sources (i.e. sources outside the Google Play Store). You can enable this in Settings > Security or Settings > Applications. You might want to uncheck the unknown sources option after you’ve finished installation AdAway (you just need it enabled for the actual install part).

To enable AdAway to block Ads :
4- Run AdAway
5- Accept Super user mode. (if it don't work, refer to step 1-)
6- From AdAway, click on "DOWNLOAD AND APPLY AD BLOCKING". Then restart your phone.
42- Enjoy

Disclaimer 2 : I don't provide any more help. If you have specific issue using :

    What's the point of creating a new thread to install AdAway? We already have all the support we need on the official unofficial thread.
    Moreover, there's a flashable zip to install AdAway for systemless hosts file.
