How to eradicate Android in-app ads without leaving empty banner spaces (root)

Android ad blockers generally do a good job with cleaning up in-app banner advertisements, but the popular ones have this habit of leaving many empty pixels where banners used to reside. And that is kind of annoying. That's why XDA developer FatMinMin created MinMinGuard, an Xposed module that not only removes ads, but also reclaims the empty territory that they used to take. Ah, what an ad-free bliss! While the module doesn't work in 100% of the cases, due to the nature of ad-blocking itself, it should do a pretty good job across the board. Moreover, you have the ability to target only specific apps that annoy you with their advertising, which means you can keep supporting other quality apps monetized with advertising.

Great! So, how do we install MinMinGuard? Well, for starters, you need a rooted device with the Xposed framework installed. If you are new to any of this, you may be in for a bit of research, depending on what smartphone or tablet you have. But if you have things sorted out already, simply proceed to the slideshow below.
