@sam @exodus Turns out NoRoot Firewall is closed source, which is a bit dodgy for this purpose.
I figured out how to block requests to specific hosts in NetGuard. Just a bit hard to find and clunky to manage (per app vs global filters).
Biggest downside is you can't use private DNS or any other VPNs while using NetGuard 😦
Why is this step necessary? mastodon.social might not be the server where you are registered, so we need to redirect you to your home server first.
