    Block Ads on your phone!

    Found this on xda-developers:

    custom Hosts file | 3/6/2010 | 14,714 ads, banners, 3rd party Cookies GONE!!

    Replace your current hosts file with this super-ad-blocking version. Tested as working fine on my Droid.

    Thanks for the find.

    Have you tried it out? If so what do you think?

    Sounds like AdFree Android. It works in the same manner.

    I believe Adfree blocks ads in free apps like pandora.
    If you like what I do, thanks

    Ok, never had pandora installed, just tried it out and I see no ads...

    EDIT: I see a blank box at the bottom of the screen. Is that where the ads are usually displayed?
