Default [MOD] Youtube 'Gingerbread' ported to Eclair

Hiya,

due to my brother not having the luck of having Froyo on his phone I took a look at it and hacked the newst YouTube app to work with Eclair. I had to remove two calls and add android.util.base64 which was introduced with Froyo. However, it should work flawlessly. If you encounter any problems, feel free to post here along with a little description and if possible a logcat dump of the exception.

You have to remove the default YouTube app before you can install this one over.

Using ADB Shell this should just work:
adb remount
adb shell rm system/app/YouTube.apk
adb uninstall com.google.android.youtube

then you can just install it over using the package manager or with adb (adb install YouTube_signed.apk).

Hope this helps, enjoy the re-designed Youtube app!

Wow, this app is so much cleaner. Thank you so much for the work and tutorial.

Small FYI, I'm on Bionix Fusion 1.1 and the stock app is actually YouTubeHD.apk so that ADB command is slightly different for that ROM.

Thank you. This is the best UI for the You Tube app to date. Installed with Root Explorer. The other files I deleted besides the system/app apk were in data/data and data/dalvik-cache. Running great on JI6.

I used the Root Explorer to replace a system app for the first time. Indeed a neat practice with no risk involved.

Thank you

Oh yeah and it's working fine !!!!!!


Btw, I 've question about data/dta and data/dalvik-cache. With the Root Explorer do I just empty the entire data/data and data/dalvik-cache folder? If not how do you find the files that's responsible for the corresponding old app



How about Voice action from 2.2?

Gingerbread has been released? When did this happen? I think he means Froyo right?
