Use Repo Apps with Changed DNS

Using a dns changer for adblock/security, (Keweon), which uses a root certificate and dns change, which I did by deleting symlink /etc/resolv.conf, and creating an actual file with different nameservers. Working great with browsers, but get connection error with repo apps, (Storeman, Jolla Store, etc.). Any idea how to fix? Thanks

Instead of fiddling with the system's file, why not using a local block list e.g. via https://openrepos.net/content/nodevel/defender ? That should also be faster compared to using an external DNS service.

I know there are alternatives, and I might switch it up, but now I'm curious, so just wondred if anyone knows...

The store & shop are most likely verified via pinned certificates. Forget about it.

did you try to do a DNS lookup from the CLI?

you would need to install dig from the bind-utils package (pkcon install bind-utilsas devel-su), then do a dig www.openrepos.net and compare it with a normal output
