Thank you for the suggestion of DNS66. I'll pass.
Couple of reasons... It isn't found in PlayStore, you have to side load outside of 'protected' apps. Also, it functions as a private DNS, routing all lookups through a DNS service that resides.... somewhere.

I've found another possible way by using ADB and Android Tools, pull/push files. But don't know if I need to unlock to do this.

Change to any dns with adblocking like dns.adguard.com by setting private dns in android settings.

You can use AdAway in VPN mode or
install Ublock Origin Firefox plugin or
use private DNS as suggested by @Rootk1t
