Hiya,

due to my brother not having the luck of having Froyo on his phone I took a look at it and hacked the newst YouTube app to work with Eclair. I had to remove two calls and add android.util.base64 which was introduced with Froyo. However, it should work flawlessly. If you encounter any problems, feel free to post here along with a little description and if possible a logcat dump of the exception.

You have to remove the default YouTube app before you can install this one over.

Using ADB Shell this should just work:
adb remount
adb shell rm system/app/YouTube.apk
adb uninstall com.google.android.youtube

then you can just install it over using the package manager or with adb (adb install YouTube_signed.apk).

Hope this helps, enjoy the re-designed Youtube app!

Just tested it, and it works on eclair.

btw, is it possible to port the froyo gmail app to eclair?

EDIT: after further testing, it force closes. the process used to get to a force close was i logged in to my youtube account, exited the app, opened skyfire (it forced closed, perhaps of youtube. however i am not sure), reopened the youtube app but it forced close. i reverted back to the older youtube (stock) and repeated the process above, and no force closes in skyfire or youtube

Why not,it`s a Froyo 2.2 ROM so you can use the original too

It worked for me at the first start, but then it gives me force closes every time I try to start it. I restarted my phone, tried to reinstall the app, but nothing helped. Anybody has the same problem?

I can only use the app again if I go to Settings/Applications and delete cache and data from YouTube. Is there any way to avoid deleting these all the time? FC mainly occurs after I login to my account. Thanks

Updated it

Changed a API call that would require Froyo. Should work better now.

Thank you rolle3k for your work. I just tried the fixed version, but it still gives force closes when I am logged onto my account. The problem might be around logging in to an account, because when I'm not logged on, it works.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll check that out.
