This is the reborn version of Adblocker, which helps you block advertisements from various Ad-Network.

It can block advertisements in many aspects according to a pre-loaded-list, such as activities, views, hosts-based, webview-based, receivers and many many more.

It does not affect system hosts file, and does not conflict with it either. It also has whitelist feature so you can easily control it. You can also use it along with AdAway or other adblockers to extend its power, especially built-in app ads.

This module is being actively developed, and I will update it about every ten days. If you have any issues or want to contribute to the project, feel free to contact me via Github or XDA.

MOD EDIT
Numerous reports from users of certain devices that this module can disable things, cause erratic behaviour and other issues, have been reported.
Specifically, most of these seem to be related to users of Xiaomi's Mi-line of devices. In the case of these devices, the module can cause behaviour such as stopping the launcher and removing some options from settings, making the module difficult to remove.
Proceed with your own caution, and preferably a backup to restore if you encounter such erratic behaviours. This will also be posted in the OP of the thread.
There are varying alternatives that work well. This module has also NOT been updated at all lately, and it's recommended that users seek alternatives.

Download:
http://repo.xposed.info/module/com.a...cker.continued

Features:
- Activityies Block
- Views Block
- Hosts Block (Not affect system hosts file)
- WebView Block
- Services Block
- Receivers Block
- .............

Principle of Work:
I hook some fundamental classes and methods of Android system, check if they are included in a pre-loaded-list (maintained by me), and break the calling of these classes and methods if included. There might be some false positives so feel free to contact me.

FAQs:

- How does it work compared to AdAway and MinMinGuard?

AdAway modifies system hosts file to redirect some ad servers to local host, thus prevent from accessing them. MinMinGuard blocks some prebuilt app Ad providers from taking effect. My application have both of their features, and extends by blocking services and receivers.

- Where is the hosts' source?

Now, it covers Dan Pollock's hosts and some app specific blocking hosts. I am searching for good sources which is simple and effective. If you have some suggestions, feel free to let me know.

- Why does not it take effects to some browsers?

The reason is basically the same as unbeloved hosts. Some browsers have their own network solutions which conflict with the normal handling method. But for browsers which simply use original WebView loading method it works well.

- There are some false positives!

Contact me via Github or here. You can also use the whitelist feature. For element whitelist, just enable debug logging, find the element(activities, hosts, views...) according to a 'block success' line, and add them to the whitelist. Each element takes one line.

- I need to view ads for some reason.

Use the whitelist feature. However, some apps uses Android System WebView as an elements loader, so you should whitelist it too. But this will ramp down the power of blocking. I am working on a better whitelist feature.

- I want to donate to you for your work.

Use the PayPal donation option:https://www.paypal.me/wanghan1995315. But it will not make any difference or be a privilege for you. There is no such thing as advanced support.

- How can I contribute to you if I found something useful (hosts, Ad SDKs)?

I am working on a block list repo on Github. Feel free to open a pull request.

Works flawlessly. Had some issues with MinMinGuard. I am currently using AdAway+Adblocker Reborn. Everything is perfect.

From my personal experience, it does not have any evident effect on battery. But to be honest, every exposed module will affect battery since the phone now has more work to do, which is implemented by the module. I will keep the battery consumption as low as possible.

Uhm what exactly is the reason I should use this. I just tested a website for adblock check, whereas adaway active lead to first pic.
Disable adblock and enable this tool and restart lead to the second one. So obviously the ad had not been blocked by this mod.

Is your mod for ads in games or how should i understand that?

Just a bit confused, sry
