Edit your android hosts file the easy way.
I needed to edit the hosts file on my Nexus 5 so I could test a non-existent domain I use for development. The problem? File permissions. The solution? A free hosts editor app.
Having your Android phone or tablet rooted is a good thing.
Android is a great operating system and for a lot of people it works just fine right out of the box, but what if you want full control of your Android? Rooting is the way to go.
