If I use an app to protect my phone from ads, then I still have the ads in my apps.Yes method remain same if your device have u locked bootloader.
But if you are rooting only for ad free then I suggest you to look for some non rooted ad free or consider using custom DNS.
Now a days rooting isn't same as era of s7.
I also need root to access my system files. This allows me to access various databases and use them externally.
I also block my advertising at the DNS level (PiHole).
But it's not completely enough.
I am aware that a lot has changed in the last few years. That's why I ask here before I actually root my phone.
That's actually one thing I don't know yet.
Thank you very much.
I was now once in download mode and I was in the bootloader menu.
Here is all the information.
My bootloader is locked.
What can I do now?
