Masqed Crusader a Network Optimization Tool for Root Users

Haven’t picked up a 4G phone yet?  Rooted?  Still looking to get more browsing speed out of your phone?  Masqued Crusader may just be what you looking for!  With one single tap, ads will be blocked and Google DNS will be used.  When you  “Start the Crusader”,  it will block all ads as you browse, as well as incorporate Google’s fast DNS servers, ignoring the DNS defaults of your current connection.  Your recent DNS lookups are cached using Dnsmasq, thereby quickly loading the pages you have already visited.

Your privacy is also increased due to not using your wireless carrier’s DNS servers.

A couple of things need to be done first before this can be used.

1. Your phone has to be rooted

2. Busybox needs to be installed (Comes with many rooting methods and custom ROM’s.  Open Terminal Emulator to check)

There is a trial version available in the market as well as the full version for all Android rooted phones for a mere $4.99

    The web interface for the Android Market is very out of date…. Masqed Crusader now has over 60 reviews and is rated 4 stars.

      You have a sound point… however, I believe that the end-user has the right to choose what they will be viewing on their mobile device, that is why the next version of Masqed Crusader will have options to disable Ad-Blocking and/or to use OpenDNS instead of Google DNS. It should be released sometime tomorrow.

    I bought it. Liked it for a few minutes until I realized it futher complicated wireless tethering and then I got a refund…

    Great app, but until they can have it automatically disable/enable when tethering or the like, I’ll just stick with the AdFree app.
