    Default Re: I accidentally deleted my "host" file.

    You have a few options.

    • Post and see if someone can leave their host file for you to download and place on your device. They are generic as far as I remember and contain no personal/device " specific " information that should cause any security issues.
    • Flash the stock " factory " firmware.
    • Download a stockish custom ROM and pull the host file from the ROM at the "/system/etc/" location and place it on your device.

    However I don't see this causing any issue with the charging of your device. Host file to my knowledge (sorry its been a while) only has to do with what you device is allowed to visit. Its frequently modded to work with Adblocking apps on rooted devices.
