That is not a beta, it's latest stable.
Beta is available now, i'll post release notes here soon.
Running the latest beta 1.1.888 and so far so good. Though it is without firewall yet, it should be in v1.2.
Ok, it's out beta version 1.2.927 with firewall! Looks impressive, also noticed that you can import custom rules. Well done adguard folks! Will test it and revert with result.
Beta version 1.2.927 is here indeed.
1.2.927 beta installed on Kitkat 4.4.4
After setting firewall rules, then restarting my phone all rules are gone. Everything is allowed.
Confirmed, thank you!
The bug is critical so we'll release an update tomorrow.
Have tested the latest beta, especially the Firewall was in my viewfinder and I didn't find any problem, apart the above said.
Meanwhile we've got two more critical bugs
It's a beta in the end! I blocked various applications to see if their communication will be stopped and all proved to be successful.
One more update is available.
* Fixed crash when entering the Firewall section when an app was using a multilayered icon
* Fixed Firewall markup on devices with low resolution screen
* Fixed bug with saving app blocking rules, when you exit the program immediately after making changes
* Fixed app crash when sending a message to tech support
* Several minor but necessary fixes
Btw, I am on vacations till May 11 and I am not sure if i'll get to the internet there.
I have some questions about the firewall. If I open the .apk and navigate to /asserts I can see that there is a iptables binary, which is good since this is one of the best solutions under Linux/Android to manage the traffic.
My questions are (Currently I'm on Adguard_1.1.887.apk):
- Why there is no ip6tables for IPv6 support?
- Does AdGuard respect&prefer the own or the system iptables (under /system/bin)?
- How AdGuard handle the DNS stuff in generally? I saw there is a effective_tld_names.dat, so I guess this is for black-/white-listening only, or will this be parsed by the OS own mechanism?
- What are the default rules for the iptables?
- Does AdGuard supports tcpdump like AdAway, because I can't see any interface to see the host names (to maybe black-/white-listening some entries manually).
- Does it work with tethering? Since I know no app (except iptables itself) which may can hndle this (due Android limitations/restrictions).
- Is it possible to get an opt-out option so that there are no hidden connections/traffic to e.g. the tech support? Or can you provide the host names to block this?!
Thanks for the answers.
For now we don't use iptables for Firewall.
iptables is used to redirect traffic to the local proxy (ports 80 and 443 are redirected) and that's all for now.
So if you use Proxy+Root filtering mode Firewall manages only HTTP/HTTPs traffic (you should have seen a warning about it).
Default filtering mode is VPN and in this mode we don't need iptables and ROOT to manage all traffic.
We will add ip6tables support eventually.
Yes, system iptables is preferred.
This file is used for proper 2nd level domain name extraction. We don't yet parse DNS packets.
For now you can use logcat to see the filtering log:
This way is not final, we will improve it in future. Here is relevant discussion on our forum:
Also you'll need to read the manual on filter rules creation:
In VPN mode tethering is forbidden by Android itself.
In Proxy mode it works, but as I've said, Firewall is not fully functional in this case.
Backend server name is mobile.adtidy.org. But blocking it is not a good idea: you'll also stop receiving filters updates.
You can also see all these requests with parameters in Adguard's log file.
Log file is stored in the app cache directory. Depending on your device it may be:
Hm. If you switch to Proxy+Root filtering mode you can see all these rules in the log file.
Some of today's filter update brought an issue causing shattered websites or they cannot load at all, for instance this website. If adguard is disabled everything's alright. The site is loaded properly and completely.
Edit: it seems to be resolved.
I was looking for something like adguadr. Will install rignt now. Thank you.
Hey guys, we've released new beta version, finally fixing our old MMS/SMS issue with Verizon (and sometimes T-Mobile).
So, the problem was that Verizon/T-Mobile uses IPv6 for MMS/SMS and if it's not available it sometimes does not switch to IPv4.
AG now filters IPv6 so the issue is fixed.
Changelog for 1.2.975:
+ Added IPv6 filtering support
+ Added support for Chrome Dev browser
+ Added the statistics for the system and uninstalled applications
* Fixed an issue where the service couldn't start after a few stops by the system (often on the phone with little memory).
* Fixed bugs in the firewall interface
* Changed the firewall interface - we now have a nice and smooth list
* Fixed some minor errors
Running since yesterday evening and so far so good. I especially appreciate that you have sorted out an issue where browsers were disabled in the firewall. You cannot imagine how long it took me to discover that Opera doesn't load webpages because of the said bug. If I'm correct this bug was fixed in the previous beta version.
Yep, you're right, that was serious bug so we've fixed is asap.
I purchased a lifetime license for AG for Android and really like your product
BTW, I'm using the proxy filtering mode as I use tethering at times.
One question: Is the Android version also affected by the SSL issues mentioned here? I'm using v. 1.1.888.
No, Android version does not decrypt SSL.
New version of inoreader has been released, wwww.inoreader.com and while adguard blocks most of the ads there remains a big shadow stripe with Remove ads link. Can this stripe be blocked as well? It is pretty annoying.
Filter update will be available in 10 minutes.
Do you mean English filter? I updated it but the stripe is still there.
Today's special - Adguard Lifetime license for 2 computers and 2 android devices for $39
Yes, English. That's strange, maybe we are talking about different things.
I've blocked big square placeholder with stripes and remove ads link in the news feed.
