V2RayNG is a mobile application derived from the V2Ray project. This platform is used for constructing proxies to circumvent network constraints. One important use of V2Ray is to gain access to websites obstructed by China's Great Firewall. The way it operates is by fabricating a virtual private network (VPN) link between the user's gadget and a V2Ray server. The server then plays the role of a proxy to reach the blocked material. This technique lets the user evade restrictions and surf the internet as though they were situated in a different place.
v2rayNG release already embedded domain file geoip.dat and geosite.dat. However it is (probably) not the latest and not the most complete list. For power user, the embedded files can be easily replaced with the following steps:
- Launch v2rayNG (v1.4.9+)
- Find existing geoip.dat and geosite.dat in Android/data/com.v2ray.ang/files/assets (path may differ on some Android device)
- Replace them with the latest domain list and ip list
- Enhanced version can be found in this repo (recommend to use geosite:geolocation-!cn for proxy dns and routing)
- It is also possible to use third party dat file in the same folder, like h2y
