How to access hosts file?
I am following https://www.modmy.com/how-modify-hosts-file-your-android-device to modify the
hostsfile (map IPs to names) and it says it is under
/system/etc. When I went into my Android file browser, I did not find that directory. Is it because the phone is not rooted and how can I access that file?
You can try using an app like Hosts Go that doesn't require root and allows you to set custom host entries.
The app is available from Google Play.
