    are they popping up within certain applications? on the home screen? while using the browser?

    Several apps are advertising supported and have ads popup inside them, some of which are probably from admob. In fact, Google just bought admob.

    Developers can advertise within their applications using AdMob.

    There was a program when I was rooted that would edit the HOSTS file on the device to kill all the ads on the device. Only works if you are rooted though.

    root. adfree android.

    (edit: it doesn't remove ads, it just makes it show they do not show up, instead its just a white rectangle... I wish they let you edit the color if anyhting cause with my theme a black rectangle would be perfect.)

    Is there any one specific google app that this might be built into? I am gettings ads while browsing and in just about every game I've downloaded whether paid or free. I shouldnt have to see ads while using a paid app that has no affiliation with Google. Driving me nuts. I have the original Droid that I use if I want a rooted phone. Was trying to keep my HTC Incredible stock but this drives me nuts. I don't want to just have a blank rectangle either. What else can be done?

    Ive tried removing all the Google extras that I dont use thinking it might be hosted by one of those (Goggles, Earth, Translator) but no dice. I've stripped off all the apps that I originally downloaded but its apparently coming from some sort of bloatware on the phone. Guess this one is going to have to be rooted and remove all the bloatware to stop it? Could it possibly be hosted by the Maps app? I use that one reguarly and cant get rid of that...

    I know this probably wouldn't bother you guys, but as a woman, I don't like having to look at ads geared towards men (bikini women, etc...check'em out now!) when I download an app...specifically, workout or weightlifting log apps. ...wtf are they thinkin? That only men lift weights? I think I'll try and root my phone and look at white rectangles...

    Angry Adware and malware bundled with apps

    You downloaded a battery manager right? Now you randomly get a black screen with an add on it. Generally a battery add? This is from an app called battery manager. There is no uninstall and when you try to close the "battery reciever" process, it wont close. This adware also causes admob to only display the battery manager add and shows up on screens which normally dont show advertisements, like the aplication manager. It also disables your data manager. The battery manager app also has false ratings, false download counts, and false software (it doesnt improve battery life, it gives you access to controls you already have access to)


    Ive sent emails to the developer without replys. Im very upset about it and have sent emails to tech support and verison to find out how to remove it. Nobody knows

    Does anyone know how to handle this? Perhaps teather her to my pc and look for the app and adware that way?

    I can be contacted at astcomjakecw@facebook / or aol.com. you can also call me if you have questions or solutions. My contact can be found at "http://www.sotd.us/kylecurrier/Contact.html"

    This is what you need right here!

    https://market.android.com/details?i...=search_result

    Instead of seeing ads you will see a minimal sized white box. Some apps and games it blocks the ad entirely.

    Ad free requires a jail broken phone, however i have a droid x with verison and if i jail break it, they nuke the phone's hdd. So that wont work.

    I also tried disabling admob in the market but still get ads. The ads are exclusively battery manager ads. And they still pop up during calls, in the application manager and otherwise ad free areas of the phone.

    Does anyone else have a solution? Or the number/address of the developer so i can beat his ass into the floor?
