Open the video with chrome and set desktop view. Then choose 1440P resolution and watch your video of course only work if that videos have high resolution.

You still can't even watch 1080p with the YouTube app?
That crap really annoyed me on my Nexus 7 (2013) where you could only watch 720p at most. :-/

Use the previous update of YouTube and you will be able to watch 1440p just disable auto update from Google playstore ....

I downloaded the YouTube apk from your mediafire link and it worked for me.

It should be noted that I had to remove YouTube twice using System app remover (ROOT) (pro), firstly I removed from User Apps but then when I rebooted YouTube was still present and started updating automatically. I then removed another YouTube that was present in the System Apps section and so it was removed completely.

Installed the above apk and now can enjoy 2K YouTube videos

Anyone able to help me identify what i'm doing wrong here as i cant seem to get it working

Here's what i've done :-

Disabled Auto Updates for the Youtube App in the marketplace
Uninstalled the youtube app using Titanium
Restarted the phone
Installed the linked version of Youtube

Open it and still 720p is the max resolution i can select on a video i know goes to 4k resolution

Any help?

Cheers guys

Im using 5.10.3.5 and I get 1080p on videos that support it. Havent tried higher, because... well... my current device (Note 3) has a 1080p screen (soon to be a Note 4). According to google play, thats the last and latest version here in Scandinavia.

Root your device .... delete youtube from your system "Root Explorer Pro" redoot device ... make sure youtube is not in your system device . And know install the version that I posted ... and know you should be able to see 1440p resolution .....

Also make sure auto update is disable from your playstore
