    Yes i am on .240, i dont seems to suffer from the high battery usage.

    By the way, i found those ads not blocked in GO Keyboard v2.56, while using chrome mobile. Android v4.1.2
    Screenshot_2015-10-29-19-04-16.png

    The ads are just above the keyboard. And appears only when using chrome.

    Edit: now updated to .242

    I think this ad is partially builtin. When network is disable, the ad words only in English. When network enabled - they are Russian and English. The list loaded from url:
    http://navigation.api.hk.goforandro...lIjoiMi41NiIsImN2ZXJzaW9uX251bWJlciI6MjE1fQ==
    We can block
    Code:
    ||navigation.api.hk.goforandroid.com/api/*/website/navigations?virtual_id=$empty
    but banner place will not removed, and in the request not only ads, but news(maybe other GO app use it).

    I saw this ad in UC Browser. This is builtin ad, so we can't remove banner's placeholder.

    build 2.7.153

    Seems the firewall (when adguard is activated and set to block Wifi and datas access) can't block Viber app; i disabled Viber to connect to everything but i still got messages from my contacts.

    updated to build 240

    will retest the Firewall.

    240 is current stable, would be better to test it on beta (v2.8.40 is the latest:)).

    yep did it, Viber seems to bypass the FW even if i disable the WIFI/data connection; (people can see me online) ; or maybe Viber use an hidden process to connect status. or maybe i do something wrong...

    @Umbra was it with 2.8.40 or the latest beta? We'll check it anyway, of course.

    2.8.40 and previous one as well;

    easy to test:

    - install Viber on 2 phones
    - install Adguard one one
    - activate Firewall and block viber connection by Wifi/data via FW (settings > Firewall >Apps Management >search for Viber)
    - Launch Viber on adguarded phone
    - check with other phone if the adguarded phone viber's status is online or not. (shouldn't if communication is blocked)

    Last time, i could even receive text while viber's communications were supposed to be blocked :eek:
