rooting the Ares?

Hi
I was trying to install Adaway / DNS 66 / Blokada yesterday and none could work as they cannot access the hosts file, root is definitely required.

Has anyone ever tried rooting the Ares, or Mars following this method?
I just want some feedback before I do anything...
normally the procedure on a phone is to
- enable developpers options, aloow usb debugging
- unlock the bootloader
- somehow flash su
thanks for your help

Blokada doesn't require root. Are you installing directly from Blokada.org?

I did install blokada but could not work out whether options were activated or not as it is not possible to see : readthem on a black and white screen!

Have you tried holding down on its icon to then set to bleached mode, in the launcher?

If you have another Android device handy, all you really need to do is install Blokada on that one as well and compare screens to figure out which area to tap on the Boyue... once you have Blokada up and running you really won't need to refer to it again (except to allow other apps you may install to bypass it should that be necessary).
