Talking [MOD] YouTube 4.4.11 (v5b), *1080p* / 720p HD (over WiFi & 3G), screen off playback

Hello

I saw some threads floating around about youtube 720p playback, and I really always wanted that myself.
But I was stupid enough not to even try.
I did try now and, yep, I got it working!
How I installed it:
** Remember: Your device must be capable of 1080p/720p video decoding and rooted, unless YouTube is not preinstalled as a system app!

• Removed /system/app/YouTube.apk
• If YouTube is still in the app drawer, go into YouTube app info and tap "Remove installed updates", then "Force stop".
• Install my APK!

If that doesn't work for you, try this alternative method:
• Remove YouTube.apk from /system/app (if there is any)
• Uninstall YouTube if it's still on the drawer
• Push my APK into /system/app (be careful with permissions / ownership)
Downloads
Android 2.2 or newer (Froyo/Gingerbread/Honeycomb/Ice Cream Sandwich/Jelly Bean)

v4.4.11 - Build v5b

v4.4.11 Inverted (Dark theme) - Build v5b (Thanks to rujelus22, B-boy, Team Blackout)

Holo blue inverted builds (Thanks to Kryten2k35)

To enable my extras, just press your phone's menu button (or open the overflow menu top right corner) then tap "Advanced Settings"

v5b Source (smali/resources changes, eclipse project)
WiFi HD: HD only available when connected to WiFi networks
WiFi + 3G HD: HD available on both WiFi and mobile networks

Enjoy, thank & donate!

Can you upload your original latest youtube apk? Which version is it?
I guess this one is not compatible with Froyo/GB.

Why don't we cut you up into little pieces and feed you to your pooches? Hmm? And then we'll see how loyal a hungry dog REALLY is. It's not about money... it's about sending a message. Everything burns!

It's build 3.5.5, and has been tested on Galaxy S running ICS 4.0.3.
How I installed it:
• Removed /system/app/YouTube.apk
• If YouTube is still there, just go into its app info tab and tap "Remove installed updates" or something, then "Force stop".
• Install my APK!
Download:
MediaFire (.apk)

I don't know if this APK runs OK on Froyo/Gingerbread, but I guess I can patch those APKs too, if someone gives them to me.

Waiting for your feedback!
Doesn't work on Gingerbread...I think the .apk need to be patched
Dpn't have ICS so can't test on that plateform...

2.4.4 is for GB
3.5.5 is for 3.0+

And you have to set density to 182 to view YouTube HD. Both 2.4.4 and 3.5.5 have built in HD feature...

Yeah, but why bother changing your DPI if you can just install a modded APK?
And does changing DPI enable proper HD functionality?

Ok, I've uploaded a modded 2.4.4 build.
Try it and write back, as it crashes on ICS (?).
