    Ya know, its kinda ironic that you are asking for donations for a tweak that will prohibit other developers from making their income

    If you click on the ads to help developers do not install this. Note the clause above

    All the files are kept on my rapidshare account except for the auto updated file, it is kept on my private server. The donations are mainly to show support and the best way to say thank you This project has already been very active on another site and I thought I would bring it to this community It is watched very closely and any if not all requests are met.

    Update

    -fixed issue with zods forums and blog site

    Get it here or toggle:

    This is nothing like Adblock for safari. It is more comprehensive and the toggle updates the host file when turned off, 5 second wait, and turned on again. I've used this from the other site that the OP is speaking of and it works great.

    can you update the bosspaper file?

  13. #12
    I don't click on ads EVER.. so it doesn't really matter to me. Like most people using adblockers - We don't click on them.

    This mod *seems* extensive so I'll have to take a second look over it haha.

    Lovely

    Not

    Its not entirely the case of if we click on them. This mod stops them from being downloaded at all saving battery and time

    It's not really that "extensive" either, you just replace the hosts file in /etc/ and your done. The toggle is a few more steps but it can disable, enable, and update the hosts file so you never have to update manually again

    Update

    Hosts v2.0.2 (same as current toggle update)
    -Removed ads from Twitterific free (appstore)
    ^^ Must uninstall then reinstall for cached ads to be removed ^^
    -fixed issue with zods forums and blog site
    -Version number is now in first line of hosts file. It can be viewed using any file viewer such as iFile.

    wow, this is the best hack ever!!

    I just appended my host list with your host values, and applied the patched files for bossprefs, and smprefs, and all good.

    As where I live internet on 3g is not unlimited, this mod if a lifesaver

    Just one small problem, The Categories patch may work to load up the application, but unfortunately when one tries to add or modify settings, nothing changes even after respring. Reverting back to the old hosts file and original unpatched file fixes it but every time I want to install new sub catergories or add to it, will have to reverse this hack.

    Any ideas on a fix for the patch?

    Just got one problem,. With Categories, applying applying the patch and chmod command, it does indeed patch it so Categories loads up fine, but upon trying to change any of the folders, etc it no changes are saved. I found the only way was to change back to the default hosts file and use the unpatched Categories to get it working.

    Any ideas on how to fix it so it will work in patched no advert mode?

    I just tried it on my phone and there's no problem. I'm not sure what's wrong. You were first supposed to replace the Categories file and before opening the app you enter chmod command. then reboot just to be safe and try editing stuff in there again.

    Hi, fixed my issues with Catergories. one must must "chmown root categories" in addition to the Chmod stuff.

    once I changed owership it was all fine. I think it was the way I used sshfs to log into the iphone to copy the patched files in.
