    Hi All,

    Is it possible to add a host file entry to Windows Phone 8 and if so how do you do it?

    Thanks,

    Michael.

    do you mean hosts file?

    if it is then, it is not possible to access it via normal methods.

    You need to have an jailbroken device, there is a tricky way which I think you should avoid, but if it is absolutely necessary you can visit the following link. I don't know if it works.
    add/modify hosts in wp7 - xda-developers

    And, since you can only do this via jailbreaking your phone, it's impossible as of this moment. Why?

    No one's hacked WP8 yet.
