    just delete the host file in the ETC folder in your system to fix
    note:your phone has to be rooted before it works
    ads are stored in the hosts file

    Is there anything on the screen that says "beita"? That advertising plug-in has come with a number of apps recently, and if it's the cause you need to identify the app hosting it and remove the app.

    even if you remove it still downloads it self
    e.g are com.bala.bala

    most pf them are malware and can be fixed by installing custom roms
    or porting custom roms

    or UNLESS by using the final.hope ADBLOCKER+ROOT version or.the one lucky patcher :-(

    We don't discuss lucky patcher here, since it is commonly used for things which violate forum rules.

    You should not need a custom ROM to deal with malware. In the worst case (an old, unpatched ROM that is vulnerable to rootkit malware via the same exploits those old one click root apps used) a stock firmware flash would remove it. For most stuff a factory reset will, in some cases just clearing browser caches. And nothing can download itself (purely as a matter of semantics), if you can identify and remove the thing that's doing the downloading the problem is fixed.

    The only case where you really need the measures you describe are one of those dodgy devices which come with crap like that as part of the stock ROM, in which case the answer is not to buy them in the first place ;).

    Factory rest might work depends
    but IF too many ads just downpoad another youtube player or download Ucbrowser it has a video player inside means this is answered because.ads removal requires root or ROMS.
    i said adblocker plus pro can work NOTE:i didnt say use lucky patcher to patch any app or edit apps i just said it has te finction to easily deldte ads and disable ads popping up not to use for someones app .lol:)
