My disabled child likes this game very much. But he can't handle the advertisement. It is just too much for him. I would like to get Angry Birds ad-free. I would pay for it, but there's no ad-free version on the Play Store.

The device is not rooted, and I'm not going to root it. So if possible, is there any solution for non-rooted device?

.. several months later. Here is my solution

It seems impossible to disable ads on android games. Most of them are completely useless and some are glorifying war.

This is no problem for normal people.

For my disabled child this is information overload.

We bought an old standalone device. This kind of device where you need to buy games on cartridges. This solves my use case. AFAIK angry bird is not available for nintendo DSi, but other nice games.

    "I would pay for it, but could not find a solution." What do you mean by that? – Greg Jan 17 '15 at 18:41
  • With "I would pay for it, but could not find a solution." I mean: I would pay for an ad-free version. But I could not find one. Do you understand this? Please ask again if not. I am not a native speaker. Maybe my wording is wrong. – guettli Jan 18 '15 at 18:05

    Can someone please tell my why this question gets down-voted? Which rule does this question brake? – guettli Feb 27 '16 at 6:32

If your device is rooted, install Adaway. It will remove ads basically everywhere.

If you switch mobile data off or use airplane mode, ads won't be displayed.


Use an app called LostNet Firewall Pro to block angry birds from going online. You can find it on Google Play. 😉


You could use the app Lucky Patcher to remove ads from apps.

A lot of its features are for root-only devices but it works on non-rooted devices as well.

With it installed, you can then patch an application to remove Google Ads, then reinstall the patched version (Uninstall and install) (if it also says "License verification found", you need to patch the APK modified for no ads to remove license verification).

(Except for using this app and writing a few custom patches for it, I am not affiliated with it in any way)

(Google Play Protect will block Lucky Patcher and call it malware. It can be safe to dismiss (More options > Install anyways (unsafe)) if you downloaded it from the official site.)


You can use pihole. It will help block the ads on th DNS level. You can either get a raspberry Pi or install it on any computer. Link : https://pi-hole.net


Since I don't like complicated work arounds like switching off internet connection or rooting the device, I choose this solution: uninstall it.

    I guess because your question is removing ads on apps..., which this doesn't solve. – c24w Jul 15 '18 at 11:17
  • When I see apps that are capable to monetize only by ADS I uninstall them immediately. We are all so fed up of ADS. I found the best way of not showing video ads is to turn off the Wifi and set the mobile connection to 2G. – Duna Jan 8 at 19:12
