Block Ads on your Android device

Are you tired of ads popping up in apps on your Android device?  Would you rather donate directly to the developer rather than click on the ads?  If so, XDA forum member phaelox has modified Adfree, originally created by delta_foxtrot2.

Adfree facilitates using your hosts file to block ad servers. Phaelox found that some ads still weren’t blocked and so decided to update the hosts file himself by merging the host files from adfree/mvps/yoyo and adding a list of mobile providers that he’d found himself.

Requires root access and knowledge of adb commands.
