Can somebody please tell me what permissions, owner & group I should give to /system/etc/hosts file? My current script is:

ln -s /system/etc /etc
touch /etc/hosts
chmod 644 /etc/hosts
chown root:root /etc/hosts
echo "IPADDR DOMAIN" >> /etc/hosts
svc data disable
svc data enable

Can someone help me with the following?

chmod 644 /etc/hosts
chown root:root /etc/hosts

Those are the correct permissions and owner/group for hosts.

Beyond that, you would need to add additional information to your question for further assistance.
