AdAway for your Android (Custom and Open Source)

Android users with a rooted device can check out AdAway, a free and open source ad-blocker that works on the host’s file level. That way, when an app or webpage makes a request to a particular ad provider, it instead goes to a blank IP address (, saving your bandwidth and keeping you from being spam by advertising.
AdAway lets you use hosts files from a variety of sources, or one of your making, with options to blacklist or whitelist particular addresses and add your own redirects.
You will need to allow installing third party apps (or download AdAway through the F-Droid app), as AdAway isn’t available in the Google Play store.
