hello.

i use adblocker and adblocker networks. whilst these two work fine in browsing apps such as youtube and safari, i can't for the life of me get it to remove ad banners inside apps.


toggling on an app in adblocker or its extension will at best sometimes force the app in question not to display an ad, filling that space with a black block instead; and even then, it won't be long until the ad appears again.


and yes, i do close down the app completely before testing this out.


anyone have this issue as well?

No need for adblocker for that. Just delete/rename Applications/AdSheet.app with iFile.

i must be doing something wrong.


i renamed the folder AdSheet_PWND.app - resprang, rebooted... closed the app, but the sneaky ad is still getting through :(


edit: ahhh perhaps you meant the file not the folder. hold on.

edit 2: still not working.

Are you turning them on via Select on both? It seems to be working for me on all the apps that I have turned on so far but you have to do it in both. Also respring afterward.
