Now that there will be a file system in iOS 11, will we be finally able to edit the hosts file?

I would say no, because the files app is not a full blown file browser, there are many parts to IOS that the files app cannot access.

you will be disappointed when u check out the "file system" its basically just a hub to access the files from different cloud services within one app. nothing more

Proxy your iPad to another machine where you can modify the hosts file.
