    I was working on this for a friend of mine, which those who do not know. Ad Blockers are not permitted or used in the Google Play store, I'm not a big fan of commercials or advertisements either. So, I started working on this. Inside this .zip file I have included 5) of my favorite Ad Blockers, which they all work together.

    List includes:

    AdAway version 2.3
    Ad Blocker JRummy Apps
    AdBlockPlus 1.1.2
    AdFree 0.8.47
    AdFree 0.8.58


    Here is the package enjoy!

    I've been running all of them... Which is also why I tied them all together. There has been no lag or drop in performance, no ads... :icon_ peace:

    I had Adblocker (for browsing) but it quit working. That was a biggie as I use it on my desktop and it works great.

    I just disabled AdBlocker, earlier this morning, not sure what it was but it was consuming too much juice. The others seem to work flawlessly with very little battery consumption.

    Had mine installed from the first day I had my S4 and never saw battery drain because of it but the notification screen kept telling me I needed to configure it and it wasn't active. It's been that way for a couple weeks so I figured it got blocked.

    I should clarify, I removed AdBlocker as it had a slight drainage in comparison to the others that five that are posted it had the greatest. I tend to rely on AdBlocker in the browsers I use for my computers (doubt that will ever change), but I happen to like running JRummy's AdBlocker (preferred) which does an excellent job, with side-by-side AdFrees and the AdAway.

    Here you go, I threw up a few screenshots. I normally just use Root Explorer, which I download the file, then extract> open file (go to extracted)> select the app or apps and install.

    Alternatively, after downloading could also attempt the longer route, by moving the apk(s) that you plan on using after the file extraction, just move and paste to the desired folder. Apps are located in the /system/apps/, which you could paste the apps into that folder, then change the permission of the apk to RW-R-R, once done exit out, run the app from the app drawer and adjust your settings.

    i have always used adfree and would like to keep using it if i can. i just flashed my rmhd, which had adfree on it running fine, but now it is saying my file is too old.
    i see you have a newer version here but the file size is oddly small and when i try to install it, it says there was a parse error or something like that.
    can someone confirm the adfree 0.8.58 file is good and working.

    thanks
