Guys.

I am so sorry, since my work profiles kills me on time :D

Still i am working on the MOD.


You will be delivered with the following:

AdGuard compatible Subscription module
Standard Local HOSTS based module


I know that all are patiently waiting and its TOO TOO LONG TIME...

I am slow on replying to eMail either, better connect with me on Twitter: <@JakeT_BSDgeek> for casual chats and day-to-day chats.

Enjoy Your Day.

Cheers.

Could anyone advise how to exclude Spotify from the hosts file (not whitelisting)? I want to edit the hosts file but I don't know which lines are blocking Spotify.

Try to search for these lines: play.spotify.com, play.spotify.edgekey.net, cdn.ravenjs.com, *.global.ssl.fastly.net or *.spotilocal.com.

Unable to log in on Facebook app even after deleting graph.facebook.com
mqtt-mini.facebook.com
Showing - "Unable to log in. Check your connection"
Please, help.

To whitelist sites, add a line for each website to the HOSTS file by putting the IP address of the website (see below), then a space, then the website name. Don't put "http://" in the name, or anything after the .com/.net/whatever TLD the website has.

#allowed sites
<IP Address> graph.facebook.com
<IP Address> mqtt-mini.facebook.com
#blah blah, more sites here

i guess that you both can't read. that's sad.

but hey...if you can get the job done in your freetime.. do it! otherwise: please stop complaining. :)

oh hey
I literally complain 'cause I hate using outdated sh*t
and also, I maintain updated hosts files myself even if I am busy with my work and personal life, duh (hosts files in my signature)
so I guess you can't read too :p

Can you tell me which entries you removed, so I can remove them as well? Mine is already customized for other white/blacklists, and I don't want to re-apply all those changes to your hosts file in a PM/DM.

Thanks!
sorry I just saw this, hmmm, what to do... the version I have is old, like 2013 old. I've since tested with Windows so that the MS Store will work, n still cutting out MS b.s. A hosts file alone isn't the way to go anymore. I've been extensively testing Adguard out for the past couple months. I'm gonna zip you up a sweet adblock(etc.) package n I'd love to know what you think of it. it's really geared towards android with most apps fully working, The in browser web surfing is immaculately clean. I hope you'll enjoy it. and if you do, I'll send ya updates now n again. so keep an eye out in your box, the mailman's coming.
I don't wanna clutter this thread, will you PM me if I forget
Thank you Jake for these stomping grounds

Hi everyone,

I previously hosted on https://adblock.mahakala.is/ the list from BSDgeek_Jake
.

Currently, I'm hosting there https://bitbucket.org/Laicure/public/downloads/hosts as a mirror.

https://adblock.mahakala.is

Have fun :cool:

Nah...
-- that bitbucket link is not yours
-- it doesn't even contain https://adblock.mahakala.is
-- it's not even a "mirror" of https://adblock.mahakala.is

I'm updating that bitbucket hosts every week using these sources.

Here is the hosts file generator XDA forum post.

    MoaAB: Mother of All AD-BLOCKING > BLOCKS ADware Malware Spyware Bloatware Ransomware

    We can only dream of 'THE' Perfect AD & Malware Blocker...

    BUT.....

    Dont wait any longer and start your quest in an AD free, Safer & Secure Experience.


    Start using MoaAB. DOWNLOAD Right Now.


    Update:
    NEW UPDATE IN PROCESS...






    The Purpose of this Project is to make Device CLEANER, FASTER, SMOOTHER & FRIENDLY.

    --------------------
    The IDEA is to Minimize the ADs... NOT Total Eradication. Respect the Good Developers and there Revenues for Living.

    FREEDOM NOTE: My ADBlocking MOD realizes that advertising and revenue is important to OEM/App Developers and this is how they earn money, BUT too much Advertisements are instrusion to privacy (I am also an App Developer but I Really Dont Like ADs). Advertisements are not automatically blocked but users have the choice whether to block or not block by manually Fashing my ADBlocking CWM MOD.

    GENERAL KNOWLEDGE: This MOD will Save you CPU Processing used in Advertisement Contents, In-App Ads, Hidden App Call-Back Home Routines, Malware/Spyware Sites, In-App User Data Collection, Definitely... Stupid Garbage from Internet and Precious Bandwidth resulting Extended Battery Life and Money Saved in Internet bills. THINK ABOUT IT.
    --------------------



    >>> What is a 'hosts' file? What it Does? Whats in it for Me?
    The 'hosts' file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names and loaded into memory (cache) at startup. Android OS checks the 'hosts' file before it queries any DNS servers, which enables it to override addresses in the DNS. This prevents access to the listed sites by redirecting any connection attempts back to the localhost (127.0.0.1), which is a loopback and traffic is dropped instantly (saving your millions of money used by network traffic 2G/3G/4G). Another feature of the 'hosts' file is its ability to block other applications (bogus applications) from connecting to the Internet, providing the entry exists.

    'hosts' file is used to BLOCK ADs, BLOCK Banners, BLOCK 3rd Party Cookies, BLOCK 3rd Party Page Counters, BLOCK Web Bugs, BLOCK Web Hijackers, BLOCK Phishing Sites, BLOCK Malwares, BLOCK Spywares, BLOCK Trackers, BLOCK Unauthorized Application connections to web and BLOCK other Malicious activities...

    This is not 100% Protection but atleast it takes care of ALMOST ALL OF THE SECURITY ISSUES FACING FROM THE BAD SITES.

    For full Security, Use Antivirus or Security Suite from Android Market.

    >>> Performance Issue? Will my device run SLOW?
    I am using this 'hosts' file from my chilhood days and never had any performance issue to date, Although you might have a little delay in startup for few seconds (but you will not even notice) and then everything will be cool in standby and active mode. I say "Little delay is better than ADs, Malwares and Spywares..."


    Please Read this Post for RAM usage



    >>> Compatibility?
    ANDROID FAMILY: 4.x,
    5.1.x, 6.x, 7.x :angel: (5.0.x not supported, android memory leaks)
    DEVICE FAMILY: Anything which has 1 GB of RAM
    and atleast 1.2GHz CPU minimum.

    This MOD requires some amount of RAM (4MB - 8MB) and CPU for effective functionality. "Anything below the compatibility specs" might be working But wll be Slow and Laggy. PLEASE DO NOT PM me or POST on this thread for issues if so. I Don't and Won't Support.


    WiFi/Mobile: Please disable PROXY to use this 'MOD' else no blocking will happen.


    >>> How to install?
    Just Copy Paste the 'hosts' file in /system/etc or Import it in some ADBlock App locally or Import in NetGuard. Thats It. ENJOY

    >>> What is BLOCKED?

    In-App/Web ADs, In-App/Web Trackers, Malware/Spyware Domains, Tracker Cookies, Malicious Call-Back Home App Functions, Malicious 3rd Party Redirection Functions and Possibly Some Level of Virus/Trojan Protection and More...


    CAUTION: IMPORTANT NOTE to USERS This is not an APP but A Single file (MASSIVE ;)), So my packages is not altering any system functions, automating tasks, requiring frequent user interactions or installing/uninstalling system events. This package is not doing anything malicious but just sitting there and speaking/directing where to go or not... thats it. I hope All is Clear :angel: Please do not complain of bootloops, softbricks or hardbricks, i am not responsible :p

    CAUTION: IMPORTANT NOTE to APP DEVELOPERS & AD OWNERS This is not an Interception App or Reverse Engineering Code BUT an Android Standard defined for user configuration. I am trying to make my Device (which i own in terms of Hardware/Software which i Paid for) much CLEANER, FASTER, SMOOTHER & F
    RIENDLY for general use :angel:. My program will not alter any of the installed App/s or inject any interception code in your App/s :good:. All Request/s and Response/s are handled by OS (Android) layer. In no way to want to hurt the Developer BUT my priority is CLEAN DEVICE. :good:

    If anyone (Users or Developers) wants to exclude the domains or sub-domains from this MOD please PM me with possible reasons. I will be happy to help you.

    NOTE to USERS: Please Do not post your work in this thread. This is to avoid untested or duplicated or unstable work. You can defenitly share via some file share and PM the work to users OR Please create your own thread.


    >>> DISCLAIMER
    :good:

    This 'hosts' file will possible block harmful effects, active and passive intrusion of potential sites or apps but using this also/might block regular site and/or apps. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED and USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.

    I take no responsibility of any losses and damages to your Hardware or your Software component/s caused by this piece of code. You have been given the choice of NOT FLASHING or TO FLASH the ADBlocking CWM and yourself choosen the way to stop the ADs. This MOD might also block regular domains because of the extreme blocking nature. You will also be protected from Malware/Spyware/Bloatware but limited to the extent of updates. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED :angel: HAPPY AD-BLOCKING

    Dear Users,
    It seems that few of us are having problems with MoaAB and getting BLOCKED due to whatever reasons also calling the dev 'idi*t'. I feel WOW.

    Let me clarify all Users that this list is "Fine Tuned" to the extent that it Blocks "Almost" all ADs and ALSO, Virus, Malware, Spyware, Bloatware and blah blah blah, Read Post No#1 for detailed information on MoaAB.

    But again its not Perfect and No MOD or Software will ever be Perfect in 100% Blocking. My MOD is constantly updated and adding hand picked blocking and just not merging plain sources but combining it will commercial sources i have access to, clearing most of the invalid blocks and giving you the Full Flexibility to customize it as per your specific needs and Not needing Daddy to Help You Out, Just Remove the entries you dont want and Thats It. If Perfect blocking is required then Go and use AdBlock, AdAway or other Apps. You are always free to use and report issues but not to silly complain of your own.

    Always report me Whats is being Blocked and What to Block and i will Happy to do it for you in my spare time as time is very important for me to be more productive and earn my living and be with my family first. This is a FREE but PREMIUM WORK for You Guys. At Least be neutral if not Appreciate.

    Cheers. :good:

    to Obagleyfreer

    Thanks for this! If I already have a hosts file with lots of blocked addresses in my /etc and system/etc folders how can I add these?

    Thank you for your help

    Sent from my GT-I9100 using xda app-developers app

    Hi Obagleyfreer,

    You can append the hosts file to your '/etc/hosts' either by some terminal program (BetterTerminal) or copy your '/etc/hosts' to your PC and manually append then re-copy over USB.

    I strongly recommend to use my version of 'hosts' file over yours due to the fact that it contains updated BLOCKING Data from more than 5 sources. It also contains Custom BLOCKING Data based on my analysis.

    Happy BLOCKING.
