Problem? 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

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.
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.

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.

Both those work for me but posting issues here won't help the dev fix them if they are confirmed issues (maybe just for your device). I've added to the OP where the developer wants issues to be filed. Check there for anyone else having your issues.
