It it really pre-rooted?
I'm having the same problem and am wondering the same. I thought my device had root as I've installed other apps that claimed to require root. I tried Ad Away, but it clearly didn't have permission to write a new hosts file. It would download all the files, but then return a "Copying of hosts file failed!" error.
So I then tried both Root Explorer and ES File Explorer to change permissions of the sysytem/ect/hosts file. Neither will allow me to make the system directory writable, let alone the hosts file. Has anyone solved this?
My system ROM is factory fresh, RKM-emg4.0.4IMM76D
