This makes sense now. I hope Android gets off their asses and pushes this out in the December patch. But if they dont....i highly suggest looking for a work-around because obviously it's possible to block adds reliably without this particular setting or code being utilized. Android 10 users are now going on 3 months with our favorite adblocker being either disabled or neutered to the point of being useless, and every month that passes, as obvious by this thread, users are getting frustrated.All VPN apps that use this method (getConnectionOwnerUid) are affected.
Not all apps use it, but this API is crucial to AdGuard because it allows us to detect what app tries to establish a connection.
I appreciate all the mods and devs input so far. I'm sure you are equally if not more aggravated with the situation. Here's to hoping Dec. Patch fixes it and we can all go back to enjoying this brilliant piece of software.
