Default Youtube crashing during opening (5.5.27)

[Solved] Update Youtube AdAway [Solved]

Has anyone else updated to the newest youtube version (5.5.27) and notice that the app crashes whenever you go to open it ? ( unfortunately youtube has stopped)

i've tried clearing cache and data but still crashes.

For now i went to the App settings for it, and uninstalled the installed updates, so it's back to using the version that was included with the firmware.
Phone = Moto G (XT1032)
ROM = Rooted Stock UK ROM (4.4.4)
RECOVERY = CWM-6.0.4.7

Thank you! Solved for me too

Edit: Still not working for me Uninstalled Youtube Adaway but app still crashes. Rolling back to a previous youtube version works fine. Any other solutions please guys?

Final Edit: Even though uninstalling Youtube Adaway failed, just reinstalling the update to Youtube Adaway did the trick! Thanks again for the help!

I just wanted to post this for anyone coming across this thread who had a similar issue with this app but this was not the fix, i found that the latest youtube apk does not install well if there is no previus version so just go hunt down an old one and update it. for me i used 5.5.27
