    Sidenote, AdAway has been known to be causing some parsing issues so I've gone thru XDA and found another which works as well, it's called AdFree for Android

    I'm using Block This! app. Works great for me.

    I had the same problem reported by others: after a recovery upgrade to FW013, and installing the root, my U1 was stuck on the booting logo. I had to revert back to FW012, and for that, the only way that worked was USB flashing. Neither FW013 nor FW012 would be accepted in recovery mode nor in TWRP.
    After going back to FW012, I was able to root again normally by installing the zip from a USB drive plugged into the OTG port from the U1 standard recovery mode.

    *EDIT* actually, just as well because I didn't like the weather thing on the dashboard anyway! And I don't have a problem with FW012 so far.
