Most of the ad blockers seem to be restricted to 64-bit iOS devices (5S and after).

I have an iPhone 5 and an iPad 4. Are there any ad blockers that work for these older 32-bit devices?

Apple decided to restrict those devices. No ad blockers from AppStore will work for 32-bit devices. You might want to wait for jailbreak.

On the iPhone 5 you should be able to sideload it without a jailbreak. You need an open source adblocker and Xcode

pay attention to the edits to the provided js file. do them exactly as instructed. then, when you paste the link into the proxy settings, make sure it starts with https://dl.dropb……etc.

Sorry, I'm completely new at this. This is what I did(attached phito) but it can't be right. Could you point out what it should be? I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

you need to delete the // that come before var balckhole so that it looks like this

var blackhole = "PROXY 0.0.0.0:8021"; //iOS loopback
