This is a simple Xposed module to help you get rid of the official YouTube and YouTube Kids ads and branding layers, tested on my GalaxyS4 (Android 4.3) and Nexus5 (Android 4.4+) against the ouTube update 5.7.36+ and YouTube Kids 1.05.5, it should work on any Android device supported by Xposed framework (Android 4.0+) on some older YouTube updates as well tested with 5.3.28.

Q: Why this application requires an update for each official YouTube App update.
A: Because the YouTube application sources are proguarded, which means the generated classes names (by Proguard) are changing for each release, this should happen only if a clean proguard (producing a new classes map) is done, that's why we need to update the classes names on YouTube AdAway each time.

What's in:
- Remove YouTube Ads
- Remove Channel Logo
- Remove videos suggestions
- Remove Information card teasers

Bug reports:
- Make sure Xposed framework is installed, YouTube AdAway module enabled, Resources hooks are enabled on Xposed Installer
- What's your YouTube and Xposed framework version (saying the latest one does NOT help)
- Upload your Xposed logs (you can get them from the Xposed installer)



Requirements:
- Xposed Framework (version 2.3+ , API 54+)
- Root required for Xposed framework installation, you can remove it afterward.

How to Install:
Video by @Teotsi:


- Install Xposed Installer App
- Install Xposed framework through Xposed Installer
- Install YouTube AdAway App (attached)
- Open Xposed Installer App and enable my App on the modules list
- Reboot


Notes:
- Reboot is a MUST after updating YouTube App or my App.
- This application is NOT a modified YouTube App, you can still update your YouTube update with no issues


Download.

ChangeLog:

April 15, 2015:
- Few more checks to support some new YT changes
- YouTube Kids support

March 24, 2015:
- YouTube 10.11.55 Support
- Brute force implementation instead of static hooks, this should support all older and upcoming (i hope so) YT versions.

Translate to your language.

Thanks: to @rovo89 and @Tungstwenty their work on Xposed framework.

Is it possible to disable this app in Xposed, or is it self-enabling?

I'm on the same Rom + Xposed beta with no issues, just make sure the module is enabled, clear YouTube App data. and and reboot.
This application was tested against the latest YouTube update (5.3.24) and it's been downloaded more than 1500 in the last 10 hours with no such reports! if you are using any other version upload it.

EDIT: YouTube AdAway V1.1 posted.

The new update V1.1 requires Xposed framework 2.3+ (API 31+), because it includes some check helpers to detect Xposed installation status.
