advertising removal patch works partially

I used the patch to remove advertising on the apk of an app called "playfulbet". Even using all the combinations there is always a fixed advertising that leads to a link (app.appflyer.com) that leads back to the play store. There would also be another pop-up advertisement (with the x above right) that rarely appears.

I do not know who I should address because I'm new.

I think I can help you, I've never tested on this "PlayFulbet" but should work with it too


Download this file https://www.sendspace.com/file/i7egop and then extract it to the root directory of Lucky Patcher, it is the 'AdsBlockList_user_edit.txt'


- But what is it for?


When modifying an apk through Lucky Patcher (example: remove ads) it uses the links and activities contained in the files 'AdsBlockList.txt' and 'AdsBlockList_user_edit.txt'.


- Okay, but what does that mean?


I'll explain to you better how it works, let's say in the 'AdsBlockList.txt' file is a link from an ad provider and an activity related to it, eg: URL = 'adserver.example.us' | Activity = "com.adserver.example .Activity "


- Okay, but how does Lucky Patcher use these urls/activities to remove ads from the app?


Simple, it analyzes the URLs and activities that are in the txt file, searches them within the APK file and after finding them it "breaks" access to those links and activities, causing the modified application to no longer be able to connect to that URL/Activity, in short: if the application can no longer connect to that ad provider they will no longer be displayed


It's like a 'firewall' only more isolated!


- Okay, but how can this help me?


By default, the second file 'user_edit' comes without links or activities, just so the user can modify it and add their own filters


- Summing up


What should have happened originally when you modified "PlayFulbet" was that Lucky Patcher broke all the URLs and ad activities it found in the AdsBlockList.txt file, plus the modified app contained far more ad activities than Lucky Patcher was aware, in short, that does not mean that Lucky Patcher did not remove ads from the app you selected! this just means that he could not find all the actual urls/ad activities that contained in the apk.


The file/link that I quoted at the beginning of the post contains a custom list of URLs and Ad Activities that I found myself while modifying an app. download it and extract the content to the Lucky Patcher root directory and then try modifying/patching your chosen app again, this time you might be able to remove all the ads from it.


It may be that Lucky Patcher takes much longer than usual to perform the modification in the application, this is normal since the Lucky Patcher found much more filters than usual


Unfortunately not all Lucky Patcher users know about this useful native tool

:frowning:

If ads still appear in the apk, try to register and parse the DNS requests that the application makes, when it finds a suspicious URL, add it to the "AdsBlockList_user_edit.txt" and then try patching the application again. I hope this can help you.
