@Grishka11, for many people its crashing including me. Can you upload a patched version so that its easier for everyone to just install the apk?

Thanks bro, I will wait for the next version because the crashes ...
By the way, I hope one day you can do the same with Facebook app, I know evilwomba does that, but he takes too long to update..

What do you mean? This is a patched version. There's a bug in apktool that causes it to crash because of the non-standard way the resources are stored in the original apk to reduce its size.

I mainly patched Instagram because I use it myself a lot. Facebook isn't a thing where I'm from, so I don't even have the app installed, I use the mobile website on the rare occasions when I need it. I can try, of course...

You are right. The mod is amazing! It was getting very annoying to see ad after every 2nd or 3rd post on insta.

Also has anyone figured out which internal flag switches the feed back to a linear post history instead of the personalized one?

Edit:
To those who can't seem to install the apk, you have to disable Play Protect in the Google Play Store as that is blocking apps with an unknown signature from being installed.

confirmed about sponsored post shows up sometimes.
keep up the good work!

Quite useful. It doesn't bother me at all the followers/following crashes and a few more, I prefer no ads. Good job!
