Android: Getting AdAway working on Android 7 Nougant


Google is trying hard to lock people out of blocking Ads.  Here is a work around if AdAway is not able to write to your hosts file.

  1. On your rooted device: Start a local terminal application on your Android device
  2. Type: su
  3. Type: mount -o rw,remount /system
  4. Type: rm /system/etc/hosts
  5. Type: ln -s /data/data/hosts /system/etc/hosts
  6. Type: mount -o ro,remount /system

Now run AdAway and it should work properly.
