PLEASE DON'T INSTALL ON ANDROID 4.3 FOR THE MOMENT, THERE ARE PROBLEMS WITH THE WAY DNS HANDLING HAS BEEN CHANGED IN THE KERNEL. I'VE PULLED IT FROM THE MARKET FOR 4.3 DEVICES.
Preserves your custom nameserver information when using both wireless and 3g/edge mobile connection. WIFI Only with non-rooted phones.
Comes with google, opendns, opendns family shield, fooldns settings, enter custom DNS servers and option to revert back to DHCP.
Includes widgets that will show the current DNS state and if you have DNS Pro installed, will allow nameserver changes by clicking the appropriate widget.
In normal mode, this app doesn't change *any* system files (unlike some DNS apps), so you don't need to back up your nameserver details. Just reverting back to DHCP will go back to your normal network settings.
You can update the resolv.conf file within the preferences if the normal settings don't work. This will modify the contents of the resolv.conf if it is writable, after taking a backup.
OpenDNS Family Shield settings can be used to filter adult or inappropriate content on the phone.
Using alternative nameservers like Google DNS or OpenDNS can dramatically speed up your browsing. You can also bypass local DNS filters such as Nawala.
Set DNS also checks if your browsing goes via a proxy service that overrides your DNS settings. When network settings change, it will try to access a URL directly using the IP address. If this hits the right server then you have a direct connection to the network. If not, then a proxy is intercepting the connection and is using it's own nameserver information.
Proxy testing is turned *off* by default. You can enable it in the preferences.
I've had some feedback about net.rmnet0.dns not being changed (there's a comment here too). The app doesn't change these settings by design. Changing net.dns is sufficient to change the DNS lookups on the device. However, if I get more requests for the rmnet0 settings to be changed, I'll add in an option to override the interface specific DNS as well. Just drop me an email.
If you have any problems with this - please email me or leave a message on the google plus page (see the About option) before rating on the market. Most problems are due to cached DNS or network proxies rather than the app itself.
In particular, testing against sites such as opendns will fail if going through a mobile carrier's proxy.
If you find this app useful, please consider buying the Set DNS Pro app which activates locking, control widgets and non-rooted functionality.
Please note, entering the wrong nameserver details can break your internet settings.
If you install this on a non-rooted phone, please understand that some people are reporting in the market that it breaks their WiFi.
Unfortunately these people report the problem in the market yet don't get in touch with us so there's no way to resolve it. As a result, please consider the non-root functionality "beta" status and install on your device at your own risk.
IMPORTANT: REQUIRES SUPERUSER (ROOTED PHONES)
Press [MENU] to configure automation so the selected DNS settings will stick throughout connectivity changes.
Select to only automate on 3G or WIFI connections.
DNS list updates on startup, if internet connectivity is available.
Note that some Internet Service Providers restrict access to certain resources via DNS requests. If unable to access said resources, please try turning off automation and reconnecting to 3G first.
IMPORTANT: REQUIRES SUPERUSER (ROOTED PHONES)
Internet access permission is required to download the latest list of DNS providers for quick selection via the dropdown list.
Displays network information and diagnostics: Ping a server, DNS lookup (with geographical lookup of IP addresses), reverse DNS lookup, WHOIS queries, inspecting HTTP response headers, trace routes (also with IP address geo lookup), check whether a range of ports is open, scan a host for SSL versions and ciphers.
Includes home screen widget for long-running pings.
Recently used servers/IP addresses are remembered for auto-completion.
The results can be copied to the clipboard (via long-click on the output text), sent via email or stored in a file as text or PDF. A history of the results of recent operations is kept (swipe left and right to switch between tabs).
Numerous options (like using an alternative name server, Ping TTL, showing ping times for each traceroute step, Broadcast Ping, using HTTPS, setting the HTTP port number, selection of DNS record types to query, etc.) are available through a long-click on the "Go" button.
Contains no ads.
Please join the Google community "Ping & DNS" where I support this app, especially if you're having problems.
Samsung devices: Ping and Traceroute no longer work on some Samsung devices on Android 4.2 and newer; there's unfortunately nothing I can do about that - Samsung removed needed functionality.
New in 2.0: A new look with an option to choose a light theme or a dark theme. The big new feature is a home screen widget for long-running pings that can chart and save its results.
WHY THE GPS PERMISSION? First off, GPS is only accessed if the "Show Location" checkbox is set in the Ping Options dialog. This checkbox is turned off by default, so unless you explicitly set it, you don't need to worry about your location ever being tracked. Tracking location is useful for measuring ping times during long-running pings across large areas, like a factory or a university campus. Once a long-running ping with location is done, a Google Earth file (.dmz) is created that shows the ping times along with the geo location of each ping. Most people will never need this option, so you don't have to worry. And even if you do use it, location data is stored on the device, it is not sent or uploaded anywhere (the exception being if you attach the Google Earth file to an outgoing email - in which case you're in charge of where the email is sent to). So all the negative comments you may see in the Play Store are unfounded.
When you switch to Static IP mode, DNS Setting will copy all values from your dynamic IP setting. Now it's easy to change DNS addresses (or IP, Subnet Mask address...) and save it. You can switch back to Dynamic IP mode.
I use it to set Google Public DNS!
** For Rooted Devices Only **
DNS Changer Root provides a quick easy interface for changing the DNS servers and search domains on your android phone or tablet. Choose from several available public servers such as OpenDNS or specify your own.
Now can automatically switch and apply settings for Wifi connections are detected.
Tools Summary :
- Run a full DNS Check for a domain.
- Check if a mail server is blacklisted. (checks over 50 known blacklists)
- Check if a mail server accepts a specified email address.
- View the WHOIS of a domain.
- Ping a hostname or IP.
Reverse DNS Lookup
- Lookup the reverse DNS record of a IP.
Works with all dynamic DNS providers, including no-ip.com, changeip.com, zoneedit.com, joker.com, enom.com, namecheap.com.
For the official dyndns.com app please see my other app.
For more information see website.
If you do not know what this is you probably do not have it and this will do nothing for you.
Simple app which allows you to change your device's hostname to your custom defined hostname. This setting will remain after rebooting. The device hostname is changed and the network services are toggled so the device updates the DHCP and DNS servers with the new hostname. Once completed you should be able to ping your device at the user defined hostname. For instance, checking a default android device's hostname from DNS would show "android-abcdefghijklmnop" or some long unrecognizable name. Changing the hostname will update DHCP and DNS so that your device will appear as "your-defined-name".
*** REQUIRES ROOT ***
Sorry but this is due to Google making the hostname setting a secure setting. I have no control over this.
WRITE_SETTINGS: Required to change the hostname and toggle airplane mode.
ACCESS_WIFI_STATE: Determine if we need to toggle the WIFI once the hostname is changed.
CHANGE_WIFI_STATE: Toggle the WIFI if needed.
RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED: Retain hostname change across reboot.
* unlocks the "non-root" version of the app
* unlocks control widgets - so you can view and change your DNS from the home screen
* enables password locking of the settings.
Please download the standard SetDNS app and check that it works on your phone first!
From the Set DNS description:
Preserves your custom nameserver information when using wireless and 3g/edge mobile connection.

★ DNSet works both on Wi-Fi and 3G.
★ WARNING: the app may not work properly on Android 4.4+ due to a known system bug which we are not responsible for. We're sorry for the inconvenience.
DNSet sets Google's public DNS servers (18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124) on your device. In order to do this it creates a local VPN so you have to authorise the app once. The app quits after the VPN has been initialised, this saves space on your device's precious RAM memory.
Avoiding the ISP's DNS may help in:
* Bypassing restrictions on certain websites
* Speeding up your browsing experience
DNSet is able to start automatically at boot time. Enable the 'auto start' checkbox and a notification will appear every time you turn on your device. Just click on the notification, authorise the app et voilà, Google's DNS servers will be in use.
Need ROOT privileges. Free DNS server/proxy download from here.
Contains two functions，DNS proxy and hosts manager.
DNS proxy (beta)
This is a DNS server tools. Anti-DNS pollution
1 TCP mode to access the remote DNS server to ant DNS pollution.
2 DNS service for LAN.
3 You can view the DNS request log.
4 Can manually specify the domain name IP information.
>> Risk: This may cause the SSL authentication fails.
5 Domain name support * way, eg: *.google.com .
6 Change or repair the system DNS setting (net.dns).
7 DNS caching to reduce network delay. Only cache the IP query results (querytype A or AAAA).
What is dns system?
The domain name system (DNS) is the way that Internet domain names are located and translated into Internet Protocol addresses. A domain name is a meaningful and easy-to-remember "handle" for an Internet address.
Because maintaining a central list of domain name/IP address correspondences would be impractical, the lists of domain names and IP addresses are distributed throughout the Internet in a hierarchy of authority. There is probably a DNS server within close geographic proximity to your access provider that maps the domain names in your Internet requests or forwards them to other servers in the Internet.
This is a /etc/hosts file manage tool .
1 download a hosts file from network.
2 hand-type hosts records.
3 Manage hosts, you can add, delete, enable, disable hosts.
(Android Update Client for DuckDns.org)
What does it do?
DuckDns Updater is an Android application (service) that allows you to keep dynamic hostname’s IP address of your Android phone or tablet up-to-date (and in sync) with DuckDns DNS service. DuckDns Updater application periodically checks your external network’s IP address and if it detects that IP address of your Android device has changed, it will update the hostname setup in your DuckDns account with a new IP address. That way you can always reach external services running on your device. Our application starts the service automatically on Android boot and runs in the background. Once you configure it, you no longer have to worry about it, it does everything automatically.
Why do I need this update client?
Your device has a dynamic external IP address which changes quite often (weekly or even daily). This can make it very difficult to connect to home services running on Android from an external computer or another Android device. This application is for those want to connect to web, ftp, rdp & remote media servers - and other servers running on their Android devices.
Go to DuckDns.org, setup a free hostname, mark down the domain name and your token, insert it into Android DuckDNS Client (Updater) and you’re all ready to go.
Supported Platform: All Android devices (phones and tablets) with Android vs3.0 (HONEYCOMB) or higher.
Is it really free?
Yes, it’s completely free. We only include build in ads to support our development costs.
However, if you can’t resist to say thanks, use following donation url: http://goo.gl/qpl0Pw
DuckDNS service is DDNS (Dynamic DNS) service similar to services provided by: DynDNS, DDNS. no-ip, opendns, tzo, opendns, easydns and zoneedit.
