[Q] Installing the new YouTube V5 apk Issues (task's AOKP)
Ok after many hours of reading and searching I've found out how to install the new YouTube v5 apk.
I used Root Explorer to navigated to the /system/app directory. I clicked Mount R/W, then renamed YouTube.apk to YouTube.apk.bak. Then I moved the YouTube v5 apk I had downloaded into the /system/app directory, and renamed it to YouTube.apk, then I set the permissions to rw-r--r--.
I have launched the updated YouTube and all my subscriptions showed up and I was able to watch video's.
I'm trying to install the new YouTube V5 on my S3 Running Task650's AOKP.
I downloaded the .apk from the Android Police site, when I tried to install it I get this error.
App not installed
An existing package by the same name with a
conflicting signature is already installed.
So I read around in my Roms Q&A thread and found this post.
I'm using the task650 AOKP 5/27/13 gapps 5/21/13 on my AT&T s3 phone. When I use Reddit News, I
get a youtube service invalid error tapping on a video. To fix this I thought
maybe I should try updating youtube from the play store. I deleted the youtube
app in system/apps with Solid Explorer and cleared cache. Now, when I install
youtube from the Play Store, I get error incompatible update.
Does anyone know how to fix this?

You have to wipe cache and dalvik in recovery. Then download from the play store. I had the same issue.
Hope this helps.
So I used Root Explorer to delete the YouTube.apk in /system/app. I then rebooted into recovery and cleared both the Cache and Dalvik Cache. When I rebooted I got the Kernal splash and the then boot animation, but the phone never boots, the animation just keeps going.
My phone is fine, it's not bricked, I rebooted into recovery and restored the backup I made before attempting this.
Could anyone give me some idea how to install the new YouTube V5? I'm not asking for anyone to walk me hand in hand through it, just pointing me in the direction of some threads that might help me would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for any help you can give me.
