Huge thanks to @wanam for helping me doing it in the smali way

/* Info */

We all know removing ads is possible via YouTube AdAway module on Xposed.
Unfortunately, there's a quite a bit of people who don't want to go install Xposed just because of it.
So here are patched APKs, which don't require Xposed.

Unfortunately, this requires root :/

I'll update whenever I have time.


/* Downloads */

APK : http://arter97.com/browse/youtube/adaway
Installer : http://arter97.com/browse/youtube/ar...-installer.zip
Please read the instructions!
nodpi works for every device.
However, if you're annoyed to see Play Store's update pending, use the APK dedicated for your device's DPI.


/* Notes about the installer */

I've made this installer to make it easier for the users to install.
This installer is only for Android 4.4+.
If you're running older versions of Android, install manually.


This installer is not a complete flashable zip file!
It still requires the APK file to be in /sdcard/Download.
My installer will search through the download directory and install the latest APK.
(This means, you don't have to remove the old versions of the APK in /sdcard/Download)

The installer will extract the APK and install the necessary libraries.

If the ROM is compatible, the installer will also install an addon.d script,
so that you won't have to run the installer again whenever you upgrade your ROM.


/* Steps */

1. Download the apk.zip file
(Refer to http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google-inc/youtube/ for which apk you should download)
2. Extract the zip and place the apk file in /sdcard/Download
3. Download the installer
4. Flash the installer in the recovery


/* Thanks to */

Somehow, Google Service rejects test-key-signed YouTube app.

I need to figure this out, to make it work on non-rooted device.

It wasn't working for me with the initial set of instructions. However, I changed the permissions of the apk to 644 and rebooted, and it fixed the issue.

Hi, this is really great. Does anyone know how to make this into a flashable zip?

Also, can someone please explain the difference between the two dpi versions.

Thanks to the dev and anyone who can help making a zip. I'm not so confident about changing permissions and all...

Would this work on a Nexus Player? I'm not sure if it's a separate app entirely but I could extract and upload it if you want to take a look at it. Getting really tired of seeing the guy hit an invisible bongo while almost hitting a girl and her mom haha.

This is really cool. I hope you figure out a way to make it work without root, I know OGMods was able to make his modded YouTube work without root so it's possible.
