    It only varies slightly from the version listed on this forum... but here are the instructions:


    1. Search for Adfree Android on the market
    2. Install and run
    3. allow it to download and install new hosts file, it will copy it to your sdcard and try to replace /system/etc/hosts but fail (it should reboot the phone shortly)
    4. Power off the phone and hold Volume Down and power.
    5. Use volume down to select recovery
    6. In clockwork recovery volume down to "partitions menu" and hit the track pad to select
    7. Select "mount /system" and "mount /sdcard" "mount /data"
    8. Plug in your usb cord and open a command line on your pc
    9. enter adb shell and type the following commands

    cp /sdcard/hosts /data/data/hosts
    rm /system/etc/hosts
    ln -s /data/data/hosts /system/etc/hosts
