I want to install the older version of YouTube app, 4.2.2 update replaced the default version with the current one.
I have a back up version from 4.0. I've tried renaming the new version and copying the old one back into /system/app folder.
reboot, but didn't work.
do I have to sideload it? if so how?

Go into the play store, search youtube and uncheck auto update. Next, Tap on the renamed YouTube in /system/app and press uninstall. After that tap on the version of YouTube.apk you want and press install. Your all set!

Try downloading the version you want off of the internet. Then try with that apk.
