For Unrooted Phones: Browser-Based Ad Blockers

 do not use "" quotes.

Opera Mobile browser is the  choice. i discovered that you can create your own adblock filter for Opera with a simple text file. First, create a file called

"urlfilter.ini"   without quotes

somewhere on your SD card (I put mine in Opera's folder),  copy the text from  Here

paste text into a text file and save as "urlfilter.ini"  without quotes

move file to your SD card. It's usually easiest to do this from your computer, after plugging in your device and enabling USB mode.

Then, disconnect your phone and open up Opera. Type

"opera:config"

in the URL bar and search for "URL Filter". You should see an option to tell Opera where your URL filter file is. Tap that box, then hit the back button until you're at the root of your phone (which it recognizes as a simple

 

you just created adblock filter . After a reboot, you should find that Opera is ad-free.

Sadly, there aren't more methods to block ads on Android, but these should help get most of you by. Got any of your own ad-blocking solutions we didn't mention? Be sure to share them in the comments. in laymans terms , create a file named "urlfilter.ini" paste text into it and save as "urlfilter.ini" , move to sd card ,  in opera browser type "opera:config" in address bar search for url filter, point it to the newly created file on sd card (do not modify any other settings in "opera:config"). i like it because u can add wildcards to the .ini file and block those annoying ads once and for all, if anyone needs help leave a comment.Laugh
