The situation becomes hopelessly dire when you have installed applications that attempt to upload data to a cloud in the background, such as an automatic remote backup utility. All those personal high-resolution photos and 1080p videos end up consuming quite a lot of bandwidth...

Out of curiosity: do you have to re-edit the HOSTS file every time you actually want to update your OS?

Hi,

Out of curiosity: do you have to re-edit the HOSTS file every time you
actually want to update your OS?

no, not quite :-) Ive put two scripts in the /etc directory that I can
call via a terminal app. The first one changes the system partition to
read/write mode and puts the original hosts file in place before locking
the partition again. And the second one does the same but copies a hosts
file in place with all the domains to be blocked inside.

Not overly elegant but it works very well.

Cheers,
Martin
