    Hey guys!

    Is there any way to block app preview images from loading in the Play Store app? Obviously this will have to be done using root. I was thinking possibly at the host file, but I'm not sure what domains I could block without losing ALL play store functionality. I have a rooted Motorola Triumph running CM7.

    Also, is there anyway I can see (sniff) a list of all the traffic (maybe down to the packet level) going to and from the play store app? If so, maybe I'd be able to find a specific ip I can filter.

    The only other way I could think of would be to modify the play store apk to remove image previews... Anyone got ideas on how to do that?

    Lets assume hypothetically I need to block these images to minimize bandwidth usage.

    I really appreciate the help, you guys rock!!
