Droid wall not working?

    I have droid wall installed on both my rooted LG Optimus V and my new stock Nexus 7 mobile (att sim). I have black listed certain apps from both WiFi and 3g so they cannot display ads. But the apps still are.... Yet, when I activate airplane mode, the apps do not display the ads.

    Is droid wall ineffective or is there a setting tweak of which I am unaware? Input appreciated! TIA

    Is it working on neither device or does it work on the Optimus V?

    IIRC, Droid Wall is a root only app, which is why it would not be working on your stock Nexus 7.

    It works on the V most of the time, but not with all apps, like androzip. Odd... I wasn't sure if droid wall was root only, description didn't indicate unless I missed it, lol.

    Yes you missed it (happens to the best of us from time to time).
    The very first thing in the description, all capital letters ;)

    Duh, my bad! That's what i get for playing with my new toy at midnight, lol.

    Now if only i could figure out why I'm still getting an ad on androzip even with droidwall and adfree on my rooted phone. :)

    Not sure... I noticed that it wasn't always working on my DHD either... I moved to Avast, which also has that feature, along with other functionality :)
