AdAway is an open source ad blocker for Android using the hosts file and local vpn.
For more information visit https://adaway.org
There are two kinds of release:
Requirements: Android 8 Oreo or above
For users with bugs, there may be preview builds available from the XDA development thread and AdAway official website. It is recommended to try those builds to see if your issue is resolved before creating an issue. The preview builds may contain bug fixes or new features for new android versions.
After preview builds have been tested by the more technical or responsive community within the forums, we will then post the stable build to F-Droid.
For devices older than Android 8 Oreo, use the version 4 of AdAway.
