Valuable venture.

[EDIT]: SOLVED !!! with SudoCode755's [MOD][XPOSED] Sudohide: Prevent apps from being detected by other apps !!! Detailed instructions here (in the quote).

Questions (for my rig details see my sig below):

1. After completely uninstalling YouTube and installing Youtube_13.34.50-1334502300_API17(armeabi-v7a)(nodpi)(vDark-v2.0.2)-vanced.apk in TWRP¹ via ytva-universal-installer-v3.0.zip, after reboot I still see YouTube in Google Play Store, and wanting to be updated. Hum?? Why then did I uninstall it before? If I installed this update, wouldn't that overwrite the vanced mod? Needless to say, when installing this mod, wouldn't we want it to be detached from the Play Store BY DEFAULT, to avoid any such confusion and collision??

Next issue:
In the 1st posting I read that for some unfathomable reason we are expected to manually do the Play Store detachment by using "BOTH, a settings.sh AND plz files as parameters while installing".

2. But the script file's name downloaded from Google Drive/ Public Files/ INSTALLER is ytva_use_this_settings.sh, NOT settings.sh. That's unclear. Do I put ytva_use_this_settings.sh to sdcard/Download, or do I have to rename it to settings.sh?

3. Where is explained in the 1st posting what to do with the ytva_use_this_settings.sh file? I opened it in a text editor and it looks as if I need to edit the desired setting(s) from NO to YES, then save.

4. In the first posting it reads to "use BOTH, settings.sh AND plz files", but in ytva_use_this_settings.sh it reads:
Quote:

# NOTE: Be aware that if u use settings
# files in addition: this config files
# has priority and overwites possible
# available settings files!

I guess this should read
Quote:

# NOTE: Be aware that if u use .plz settings
# files in addition: this config file
# has priority - any present settings files
# will be ignored!

And accordingly, in the 1st posting, shouldn't it rather read:

Vanced makes use of EITHER the ytva_use_this_settings.sh file OR .plz files as parameters while installing, whereby .plz files are ignored when a ytva_use_this_settings.sh file is found by the installer.

Please admins, would you asap correct all these errors and missing essentials in the descriptions so it all becomes user friendly?

Thank you.

5. When trying to detach YT Vanced from Google Play, in TWRP I always get "Updater process ended with ERROR: 1", regardless of which of the two detach .plz files I copy into sdcard/download next to the zip and the apk, and even when I use the .sh script file, also regardless of if I have edited into DETACH="YES" or DETACHONLY="YES".

I do NOT get ERROR: 1 when using any of the 4 deATttach approaches, and neither with the UNINSTALL .plz file.

Yes, enough disk space in /System.

I researched this ERROR: 1 issue, but that did not help me at all. What's the solution?

6. Can you please provide just the script to detach YT (vanced) from the Play Store, either one to be installed via TWRP, or one to be run from a root terminal command in Android?

7. Would you please make Play Store detachment DEFAULT in the ytva-universal-installer.zip !! Why not?

Thank you for this project and for your motivation to improve it.

So for example, here's what would happen:

Start app, be signed out >> press top-right to sign-in >> press sign-in >> press add account >> go back >> vanced automatically signs me in

Just wondering if this is intended on the non-root version as I can't seem to find anyone else having a similar issue in this thread. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

EDIT:
Forgot to mention, this happens randomly and sometimes I will be logged in for hours, other times the app quits unexpectedly while I'm watching a video and I have to restart the app and manually sign back in. Every time I restart my phone, I have to manually back in.
I have an Honor Play, which is a relatively large phone.

Did u solve this?

Found the problem! Wasn't the dark mode. I changed from 'only video' to 'video with media' and now everything works like a charm...

But that feature is one of the reasons why I use vanced, so I would be happy if that gets fixed

(Axon 7, 7.1.1., Magisk 15.3)

They updated to the newest magisk template, so it only shows up on magisk v17+ now. Update your magisk and you should see it again.

¹ TWRP 3.1.1-0 for Samsung Galaxy J5 2016 with Aroma support by Lemlis

i'm in answering mood so be prepared for details

1.)
a.) then something went wrong during install and it didn't get installed for any reason and u still have stock YT installed, but actually this all didn't happen as i see no logs.
b.) yes ytva would get overwritten by the update of course, but u actually don't need to uninstall stock yt app beforehand if all went well it just gets overwritten by installer.
c.) no, for historical reasons we don't want to detach by default. i did enable it by default some time ago when doing the installer for magisk but this is a dirty hack and unfortunately multiple
people run into issues with playstore for example were they didn't get any updates from any app anymore so i decided to make it on demand and on explicit own risk. (so be warned btw!)
d.) there is no confusion either the installation worked or it didn't. u can check that by letting playstore alone and just open the app or even faster by just checking if the icon has changed.
for the update thing: as the detach not always works i suggest just to disable autoupdate for youtube in playstore and just don't update manually.
e.) have to check the post but for clearance: u can use EITHER the "plz" files OR the settings file...

2.) ...it's naming is "ytva_use_this_settings.sh" like it is provided no need to rename it, just download and use it (the intention was to make it as easy as possible for the user)
3.) yes thats the purpose of this file and YES self-explaining isn't it?
4.) have to check but if it is like so it has to be more clear, yes agree.
5.) now im confused, first it didn't work with any of the attach/detach plz files or settings file settings, then it worked with all 4? which 4 exactly? u mean only the "attach/detach" options?
but to maybe fix anything i again would need a twrp log, maybe there is more info in what exactly did not work.
6.) well it's all in already so i would rather try to fix that (if there is even a problem) but u have alternatives, u can try this (which is btw. the method i use in the scripts except the hack itself) : https://forum.xda-developers.com/and...-apps-t3447494
or use titanium backup to detach (this is btw. also the hack i used in the scripts because it worked best on more systems. this does not survive a reboot and that's the reason why we have to do it every boot with a script)
7) nope, see 1c

Unreasonable request, Google does not allow for scripts or apps which enable features in their own apps through external means, nevermind ripping out an APK file, modifying it and having it replace the original Youtube app.
