On the most new phones (particularly A10 and newer) your system is read-only (despite of rooting the phone).What exactly does that module do?
Good afternoon,If AdAway can't download from all standard host sources there must be something that blocks the connection. VPN, Firewall or similar things installed?
I don't think the Android version (4.4.4) has something to do with it. As long you stay with versions below 5.x.x it should work. If you're rooted with Magisk have you installed the systemless hosts module which is inbuilt in Magisk? If you've done that maybe a newer version of 4.x.x AdAway will work, like AdAway 4.2.9:Good afternoon,
I have nothing of what you mention installed.
It is in the only smartphone in which this happens to me with that version of AdAway.
Could it be that there is some problem in Android 4.4.4?, it is the only smartphone with that version of Android in which I have AdAway installed.
I dunno if this is the right place to ask this, but I have no access to internet after uninstalling AdAway 4.3.6 in a NON rooted 5.1 Android phone.
I installed it again, went to "open hosts file" and it only shows:
So, if my hosts file is write protected by default because I've never rooted it, why I can't access to internet after uninstalled AdAway? It's pretty weird.
NOTE: I also have another rooted phone with AdAway working fine, where it shows a second line in the hosts file:
:: 1 localhost
But I insist, it couln't delete that line or any other on my non-rooted one without root permissions.
I dont' know what to do. Please, help.
Are you asking why those localhost entries are there, I didn't understand your initial post then or now, so i'm trying to clarify what your question is (other than you have no internet access) are you the one I asked to check your vpn setting on android settings? If so what was your reply I forget. But that's where I would look. Maybe reinstall adaway as vpn and then change vpn to something working or off then uninstall adaway.After 3 weeks without internet access after uninstalling AdAway, haven't found a solution yet. This was my original post.
Yes, reinstall and take care that you choose the root install method.
As far as I know AdAway doesn't trigger safetynet validation at all. There's only a handful of root apps (Titanium backup for example) that could trigger safetynet.
Don't forget to activate systemless hosts module in Magisk and reboot before using AdAway.
Simply clearing AdAway data will trigger it to re-ask on your next startup.
Yep, you told me to check my VPN settings, and this what I answered:Are you asking why those localhost entries are there, I didn't understand your initial post then or now, so i'm trying to clarify what your question is (other than you have no internet access) are you the one I asked to check your vpn setting on android settings? If so what was your reply I forget. But that's where I would look. Maybe reinstall adaway as vpn and then change vpn to something working or off then uninstall adaway.
That's the point. AdAway can not "touch" the host file if it isn't rooted, but the problem begun when I uninstalled it. I didn't install or uninstall another app.I missed that part, then adaway, in my opinion, is definitely not the issue here; as on an unrooted phone with adaway 4.x adaway does nothing.
Had a little time to clean flash a device and do a quick test.Fixed! I just connected to another wifi network, then connected to my main one, and the phone connects to internet perfectly now.
But now I'm having an issue on a 4.4 rooted Android that I use for testing. AdAway stopped blocking ads here suddenly.
On the main screen it shows this:
View attachment 5287353
In the hosts sources section shows "Unknown update status" on the 3 default sources, even if I check for updates:
View attachment 5287365
And finally, this is what my hosts file shows.
Seems like AdAway can modify it, but it just adds comment lines, and that's why the ads are not blocked:
View attachment 5287367
Surelly the solution should be something easy to do.
I tried to change network, reinstall AdAway, enabling/disabling ad-blocking, rebooting, etc, but couldn't make it works again.
Android 4.4 (rooted)
I have gone down the path of better to add the block-list, than to investigate it further and thereby not add it. As such I have something like 60 host sources....snip...
It turns out that today while reviewing the filters I have in Adaway, I noticed one thing. That inside AdAway I have:
StevenBlack Unified Hosts
Is it just me or do I have StevenBlack hosts in triplicate?
Currently Running>Hosts>AdAwau Info>Exclusive Hosts", which lists your hosts that have unique hosts items, not present in any other list sources. So its a possible comparison between lists not necessarily obviously related.
Yes, reinstall and take care that you choose the root install method.so maybe i should reinstall it. does the root method triggers the safetynet validation?
GitLab, like GitHub do not set LastModified HTTP header so update status is not supported... yet!Is anyone using a hosts list hosted on Gitlab? It keeps showing "Unknown update status".
It works well here. I failed to reproduce as I change the HTTP client library and how I use it.Hmm, not working for me for this URL, v4.1.0 shows something like not updated in -360 days (some large negative value). Can you please see if you can reproduce?
Not really. You could choose a lot of different mode.All the F-Droid apps I know of have manual push updates to the store.
Isn't automatic build basically for nightlies?
Thank you so much! :highfive:I exist still... do you know what i have to do to transfer ownership? if i edit project it doesn't let me change the primary author so i assume i have to PM some higher up to make this happen?
Thank you too!
