Custom block list

Postby LucasBS » Thu Jun 02, 2016 7:51 pm

I've been following a thread about a custom list. The thread was probably abandoned


- Force close AdblockPlus
- I used Root Explorer to edit the /data/data/ file - long press - Open in Text Editor
- I only have one subscription, so I just edit the url= and title= lines for the Easylist entry
- Save changes - the file has been truncated but that doesn't matter
- Open AdblockPlus and refresh the current subscription (still called Easylist)
- I checked the patterns.ini file and it had indeed updated to my list.
- I tried adding a rule to block an image on a webpage and it worked.

I've tried those steps, but once I update the list inside ABP, the pattern.ini goes back to it's prior state (default easylist url and title)

Hey LucasBS!

Thanks for reaching out to us.
It is not possible to customize the filters in the app.
Unfortunately at the moment we don't have any developer working in this app :(
Let us know if you have any other question.
