Changing dns does nothing [not relevant]

Not sure what I'm missing, but has there been some change recently in how internet connections are made? Main issue is that,in previous versions, I've used Keweon dns adblock/security solution, and it's worked fine - All that is required is to change dns to Keweon dns, and ads, etc., are filtered. I've done it through resolv.conf, either by deleting symlink in /etc and replacing with real file, or by changing file in /var/run, and also with connmanctl, using 'connmanctl config --nameservers...'. Besides that, you can also change dns for Wi-Fi networks through settings. But now, none of those things have any apparent effect on how the connections are made - nothing that's blacklisted in Keweon gets blocked. I have used chattr +i for /etc/resolv.conf, but can't use it on /var, being a tmpfs. I read that you can put a script in /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d that will overwrite resolv.conf on network connection, (, but I don't want to mess around with that, since it seems like it's not going to work anyway ... Any ideas?

FTR, SFOS does not use Network Manager, it uses connman. So _that_ solution is out of question.

Sorry, my fault - typo threw everything off. Working as expected.
