I was wondering how to set DNS server on my Android Phone’s Network. Now, i found it, it’s simple just like we set DNS Server on Linux. You’ve got to choose your fav. DNS, (i think there’s 2 best : Google DNS and OpenDNS), so it’s your choice :-) Ok, if you already have resolv.conf before on your /system/etc/, we just need to set DNS server that you like..
echo "nameserver 126.96.36.199" > /system/etc/resolv.conf echo "nameserver 188.8.131.52" > /system/etc/resolv.conf
On that example above, i set DNS Server for Google DNS. But, if you like to set Open DNS, you should change the IP address to 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 and what if there’s no resolv.conf on my /system/etc? :D Ok, here we go..for 1st step, we need to make a file “resolv.conf” on /system/etc on your Android OS. Maybe you could use ADB shell, i think. :-)
adb shell [enter] su [enter] mount -o remount, rw /system [enter] cat > /system/etc/resolv.conf [enter] nameserver 18.104.22.168 [enter] nameserver 22.214.171.124 [enter] exit [enter]
Stay on adb shell command line, At last, we just need to set permissions “resolv.conf” to rw-r–r–, just type this command :
chmod 644 /system/etc/resolv.conf [enter] reboot [enter]
done..your phone will reboot automatically.. goodluck! :D
