1. Enable the installation of external applications that are downloaded somewhere other than Google Play by going to Settings > Security and selecting the check box Unknown sources .
2. Download the AdBlock Plus application on your device.
3. Install the application.
4. Start the application from the created icon, and authorize it in SuperSU.
That’s it! From now on, the AdBlock Plus app will work in the background to block all advertisements from any application you use (including web browsers).
