AdAway v1.27: How to stop the ads from showing on your android phones?

Attention: DEVICE MUST BE ROOTED FOR THIS APPLICATION
Description:
AdAway is an open source ad blocker for Android using the hosts file. 
It is the open source alternative to AdFree and other Ad blockers.
Requirements:
• ROOT
• Read/Write access on system-Partition
Problems:
• On some HTC devices with a 'feature' called S-ON system-Partition is not writable.
• More Information can be found in in-app Help screen.

Permissions:
This application needs root access on your device, meaning it can do EVERYTHING.
So theoretically it makes no sense to describe the used permissions, but people requested it so here we go:
• Root access: Write hosts file to system partition
• Internet access: To download hosts files
• Modify/delete SD card contents: To export lists to sd card
• Wakelock: Daily update check in background when phone is in sleep
