    I can't find an adblocker that works. I want something similar to google chrome's adblock. Thanks for any help.

    I think this is the only one that works.. Have to download and sideload it since I believe Google removed ad blockers.

    Pretty sure for ABP to work your phone needs to be rooted . Good Luck. If you get it to work post back .

    It never did on my X or my Razr Maxx when they were rooted.

    I have adblock on my uprooted phone. I had to side load it because it was taken out of the play store.

    Which browser are you using? Some browsers include decent ad blocking functionality. I use UC Browser quite happily and it includes adequate ad blocking.

    Yes it is! I've used ABP for years on my desktop. I installed it not too long ago on my Moto Razr.
    It worked but it sucked the life out of my battery in no time I didn't have to be rooted on my Razr or sideload anything.
