Restore your original /etc/hosts file INSTALL IT, THEN REMOVE IT. Hosts Cleaner is a script that resets your /etc/hosts file to its original state (default localhost entries). It also removes your /etc/hosts.lmb (LetMeBlock) symlink or file. DO NOT UPGRADE this package. . Bear in mind this package will remove all non-original Apple hosts entries (ocsp.apple.com is one of them). . It is advised to install this package before installing Untrusted Hosts Blocker to make sure your hosts file is clean and that other ad blocker tweaks won't interfere with it. This tweak can also help people who may have a corrupted or heavy hosts file (noticeable behaviours: connection issues or slow device). . You can also install this package to clean your /etc/hosts file. But if you have ad blockers installed such as 'Untrusted Hosts Blocker', you will simply have to reinstall them to add the blocked host entries back to your /etc/hosts file. . When installed: This package creates a backup of your current /etc/hosts file in /etc/hosts.thireus.hostscleaner.bak. . When uninstalled: This package only removes the backup file, understand that it will not restore your previous /etc/hosts. If you want to restore your previous /etc/hosts, do it manually with the backup file before uninstalling this package. . IMPORTANT: Once you are done fixing your hosts files please remove this package. DO NOT KEEP THIS PACKAGE. DO NOT UPGRADE this package (or it will flush your hosts file again)! .
