UnbelovedHosts v2.5.5

This app blocks host names you don't like. You could import "hosts"-files by given urls.
With this app you have no more to alter the /etc/hosts file on the system partition, which was also a problem on some devices (eg Nexus 7) because changes where reverted after reboot.

Name resolution request are answered with "No address associated with the hostname". This is even better than a common hosts file with redirects to, because no connection attemp follows. For logging of hostnames is no tcpdump needed!

If you want to block content of websites, you have to use a browser app which does not tunnels everything through a proxy! This is because the proxy does also the name resolution. Negative examples I found: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Opera Browser does not work.
I'm using Dolphin Jetpack, which works fine for me. Some more info in post #47 of the XDA thread.

No support of native querying binaries.
