Hello Friends,

I would like to share information about the true successor to the Vanced app. It is called ReVanced.

The project page is located on the GitHub site.

There you have all the information to build the patcher binaries(not the patched YouTube apk). Then patch the YouTube apk(must be official original apk) from the command line (instructions are there on how to do this).

Building the binaries on your own can be overwhelming for many so the easiest way is to download the "ReVanced Manager" (needs Android 8 and above). Link is on the homepage.

Unlike Vanced Manager, ReVanced Manager will not download any apk and microg (for non-root devices). It will show you the installed official YouTube version on which to apply the patch. It also allow you to specify an offline YouTube apk stored on your device which you want to patch. It will then display the list of available patches. You can choose the patches as per your requirement and apply them. Once the patches are applied successfully, you will see an option to install the patched apk as a non-root user or "install as root". My device is not rooted so I could not test it.

If you are applying patches on the installed YouTube app, then depending on the patches you choose you may get the warning saying something like "split configuration detected. The patches you choose requires resource patching, hence you may encounter some errors".

I was not sure what to do so I choose to apply patches on the offline apk.

Important: The ReVanced Manager doesn't seems to recognise .apks or .xapk extensions so your offline apk needs to be a single apk (you can get the apk from trusted site like apkpure or find a way to extract the split apk's from the installed app and merge them into a single apk)

One more thing the patched apk will not install over your existing installed official apk. So you must remove it first. I am also not sure if the patched apk will install over a previously patched apk created with the ReVanced Manager (It should be possible but I came across this project just last night and haven't really tested the various scenarios).

Note: I am neither a contributor on this project nor I am associated with them in any way. I am just sharing something useful I came across.

Thank you 🙂

You said you tried it with the recommended versions but the patched apps were immediately crashing. But did you tried to patch the recommended version as installed version or the offline apk files? If you tried to patch the installed version then did you uninstalled the app before installing the patched version? Also do ensure that the recommended app versions were original apps (no modification whatsoever)

I am assuming you are using ReVanced Manager to the patch the apps. So did the process even completed properly? If yes then how did you tried to install the patched versions? You must have got two options once the process was completed i.e "install as root" and "install". Do check the logs for any error or exception. On couple of occasions I got an exception but the patching process continued and in the end it said build success. And when I tried to install patched app it won't work. While on other occasion after the exception the manager displayed "aborting due to exception" and then it kind of stuck.

The latest version of ReVanced Manager is 0.0.28. But the most latest version I have tried was 0.0.26 and it has a broken "install as root" option. Yet to check if it is fixed in 0.0.28. You can also try using the older version of the manager (0.0.13 or 0.0.16)

If you tried to installed the patched apps as a regular user, then I think you need microg installed on your devices and you must select "microg support" when selecting the patches to apply. Though not sure but I think for non-root installation you should also select "spoof client" patch.

One quick and sure way to determine whether you are doing something wrong or missing some step is to download and install the pre patched apk on your device. For obvious reasons I am not going to share any links here. Just search for "revanced youtube apk" and you will easily find latest patched YouTube app. And of course download and install the patched app at your own risk. I will not be responsible for any mess created.

Thanks

Yeah thank you for writing back, as you have mentioned i have tried both method, i have installed YouTube and YouTube music from play store but upon patching YouTube it said that the current version is not supported so I downloaded the said version from apkmirror and tried to patch, the patch was complete without any error but the app was crashing as soon as it was launching.

About the YouTube music app the current version was supported but after patching I uninstalled the current version and installed the patch version even though it wasn't working, the app crashed as soon as it was launched.

And I don't get any prompt to install it via non-root method the app installed as regular app, though I got prompt from play protect but I disabled play protect later.

Already tried with many different versions of YouTube and YouTube music but no success.

I even tried it on my brother's phone (galaxy s9+) but no success, same results on his phone too.

But thanks man you're doing good, really appreciate your work, I'll keep trying it if you come across any solution kindly share it.

Thanks man.

I am not sure but I think the crash is some how related to compatibility issue of the ReVanced manager on Android 12 and above. Some people are having issues while trying to patch YouTube and YouTube Music apps on stock or custom ROM based on Android 12 and above.

At the same time, for others the patched apps are working fine for them even on Android 13 beta.

You are getting only "install" option after successful patching probably because your device is already rooted. I can't verify it because my phone is not rooted.

It is also possible that "install" option is automatically assuming that your device is not rooted. Thus when you are try to run the patched app, it is looking for "MicroG libraries" and it crashes when it does find MicroG installation on your device.

So I suggest uninstall the patched apps, install MicroG first then reinstall the patched apps, reboot your device and see if it works.

You can also try patching the apps on Android 11 based ROM(stock or custom) on rooted and non-rooted device and then install the apps on Android 12 based ROM (stock or custom) rooted or non rooted device.

In fact you can patch the apps on non-rooted device running Android 12+ and install it on your device running LineageOS 12.1

If you are trying to patch the apps on non-rooted device then "MicroG" support patch must be applied and obviously you need "MicroG" installed on your device.

Or exclude "MicroG" support patch if you have included it in your earlier attempts.

Also how about patching the apps on command line (you need windows 8 and above for this to work). You can download pre-build patcher binaries from the site.

For rebuilding the patcher binaries from the source you need to install other support software. Kindly go through the prerequisite software required for building the patcher from the source.

Btw ReVanced Manager app or patcher binaries can also be used to patch reddit and twitter apps.

Thank you.

Thanks for your contribution, TinySoul. I understand that the original had quite the following, so it's good to see someone passing the torch. For the sake of keeping the board organized, would you be willing to start a dedicated thread for your project, and then link it here?

Hi all. 🙂

I have been following the ReVanced project since shortly after it started.
It is a big and still a young project so, there are some glitches and issues. 🙃
- Some patches might not work or cause issues.

I had some issues with the ReVanced Managers between v0.0.19 and v.0.0.26.
YT and YT Music force close after patching with manager 22, 23, 24 and 25.​

ReVanced does not currently support split-apks.
v.0.0.19 was the last able to patch split-apk YT​

The ReVanced Manager will not work on arm (armv7a) devices.
You can patch arm files on an arm64 (armv8a) device.​

I am still working on updating a Magisk module project that I started a few years ago but, never announced.
Vanced asked that no one release an unofficial module once they created an official module.
Since the official module was dead, I asked for permission to release a new module.
A few years ago, due to changes in Android.
I was looking for an easier way to use the root 'Vanced' version of YouTube on my device(s).
Instead of manually replacing and setting permissions, I tested an idea (on a lot of devices and Android versions) to overlay the modified version over the stock installed version.
The Vanced team adopted the idea into their Manager root install. 🙂
- ReVanced does the same.

It would be nice if someone would create a general discussion thread for ReVanced.
@TinySoul
Would you be willing to start a discussion thread for ReVanced?
Title: [Discussion] ReVanced - (Add something of a descriptor).​

Then we can move the last few posts into the discussion thread. 😉

Cheers all. :cowboy:[/INDENT]

Thank you for the opportunity but I am sorry to respectfully decline it.

I do not have enough technical know-how of Android OS. And I know even less when it comes to rooted devices.

Do we really need another dedicated thread when the developers themselves are running/maintaining dedicated threads on GitHub and five social media apps ?

Those who know Russian for them there is a big thread on Russian 4pda site.

Be it any app any platform, if the developers have made themselves accessible/approachable to public, then it is always better to approach them directly.

Just a couple of days ago I came to know that this ReVanced Manager can also be used to patch Reddit and Twitter apps.

Maintaining a dedicated thread means one will have to answers queries on those two apps too. And my problem is other than YouTube I am not present on any other social media site(never fallen for any social media sites or apps right from the start) so there is no question of using their dedicated apps. On few occasions I have browsed reddit and twitter sites as an unregistered user.

It will not be fair on my part to own a dedicated thread and then not answering the queries related to other apps.

I hope you understand.

Thank you 🙏

Ostensibly, we do. If we're posting about it on XDA Developers, then we're no longer in the realm of social networking. The entire goal of an online discussion board is to present conversations in a more organized way than a social network could. Hijacking a thread about an existing project isn't the best plan of attack, especially when so many have questions and comments about it. I'll have to think it over some more, but I don't see any problem with you not supporting it in its own thread, even if your post is the first one.

You are quite right about the social networking part and I was bit wrong here. I didn't gave much thought on unregulated and unorganized (content) aspect of social networking sites/apps. YouTube, Twitter, Telegram etc. are not really well moderated but what about dedicated channels on Discord or Reddit(though it's quite similar to Quora) and perhaps GitHub could be more technical to many.

I understand that Vanced app is discontinued and ReVanced is really a new project so you see a need to have a separate thread about it.

But one of the main reason for my hesitation is this content regulation and moderation aspect of it. If I am owning a thread then am I not responsible for keeping the thread clean and ensuring it has relevant contents only?

Second reason is about active participation and contribution to the thread. Are you and others are really fine with the the owner of the thread himself being inactive for long duration and hardly having any real contribution other than few initial posts? If yes then I too am fine owning a thread.

Else you can simply create a new thread and move all posts related to ReVanced app there. You have my full consent (in case that it stopping you) and I am not even looking for any credit whatsoever for my posts on ReVanced app up till now.

I will keep on posting on that thread as per the need basis or if I have some solution for someone's query. How frequently this will happen I really cannot say.

Thank You.

Even as the first poster in the thread, not only are you not expected to moderate or regulate, you also do not have the ability to do so. That responsibility lies solely at the feet of the moderation team.

Second reason is about active participation and contribution to the thread. Are you and others are really fine with the the owner of the thread himself being inactive for long duration and hardly having any real contribution other than few initial posts? If yes then I too am fine owning a thread.

That's not a problem at all. Once the actual developer steps up and puts together a formal app/support thread for it, there's nothing wrong with linking it here.

Well then , that sounds li8ke a job anyone do, even a moderator:sneaky:, to move all the OT discussion into its own thread.(y)

😉 Your wish is now reality. ReVanced users rejoice!

Hi everyone,

- I somehow got ReVanced working on my PocoF1 using an A13 custom ROM without root.
- YOU CAN GIVE IT A TRY TOO.

- Not just on my phone with a custom rom installed, but it also worked on a phone with a stock rom without root.

I wont go much in-depth about it as I dont have that much knowledge about why & how it happened.

I was facing the same issue that some users above are reporting, that app is crashing just on opening after building, installing it.

I too tried several times, then gave up and thought to go back to Vanced.

Solution which worked for me:

Install "Youtube Vanced" from vanced manager first, then try patching the recommended specific version(17.36.37) of "Google Youtube" apk from Revanced manager, then it works.

After that, I uninstalled youtube vanced and google youtube and vanced manager, and still the Revanced Youtube was working fine.

I'm curious to know why and how this workaround worked. If anyone gets the clue behind this, please do share.

Thank you.

Hello everyone,

This V2 app shows adds from time to time, this never happened with the original Vanced. Is this a bug and is there a way to fix it?

Thanks...

    If you are updating using Magisk then can you tell whether the update preserves offline(videos downloaded using YouTube download button) downloaded videos?
    I actually never use Download feature

    I tried now, but it asked me for 3 months trial - I opted to Skip and it didn't download (screenshot)

    Thanks for replying 🙏

    Try downloading another video. The video you tried to download might be available as a part of premium subscription.

    I do not have any subscription nor I have ever joined any trial period.

    My phone is not rooted. It's running Android 11 and I use non-rooted YouTube ReVanced v17.45.36.

    Non-Rooted ReVanced is preserving data between updates. But then I am building it on my own using Termux and Revanced Builder directly on my phone.
    I tried various, always the same

    If you give me the link to one video that does not request Premium Trial for you, I could test one more time

    Please try this link.

    And Thank for your efforts 🙂
    Again 3 months trial. That's it, apparently not supported

    What is the way of updating revanced?
    Is it always needed to completely remove the previous version of revanced?

    For some reason, updates do not work for me.

    How are you doing this?
    I use Revanced.IO (root), Magisk module is daily updated, I just click to Update the module and reboot, voila

    And yes, official repos are not forks.

    I'm looking for a version that is able to share a video at a particular timestamp.
    I remember this feature in the Vanced builds (it was inside the player window).
    There's no patch to activate it and also the revanced.io APK hasn't it.
    Someone who has seen that feature?
    If not I will create a request on GitHub.
    Revanced extended ver 17.45.36
    (Patches 2.111.4...

    Sorry for my ignorance
    I'm curious - looking at the ReVanced GitHub site, com.google.android.youtube patches are mostly targeted for the YT v17.43.36

    Correspondingly, ReVanced.io modules (daily updates) also install and patch YT v17.43.36

    However, YT v17.44.34 is out on the Playstore since Nov 3 - is there a reason why root ReVanced stays on the previous YT v17.43.36?

    Moreover, on the few other sites, there are ReVanced YT Magisk modules built for the newer YT versions, like:

    v17.45.34 (beta)

    v17.44.34

    I think everybody should stop using revanced.io to install revanced.
    As we well know here in the XDA community the more important thing to the reliability of an app is the source of it. As far as I know, this website is not from the official devs of revanced.
    You can get the links to all their socials on their github here.
    What I see in this thread reminds me of the vanced thread after the end of the project and people were downloading it from shady sources resulting in strange and potentially dangerous processes running on their phones.
    Maybe I am wrong and this website is not fishy but especially with the root version of the app and magisk modules I strongly suggest to be extra cautious.
    Just to bring all informations together:
    This is the GitHub of j-hc, the dev of the apks or magisk modules that are available on ReVanced.io (and of course the same ones on his GitHub):
    https://github.com/j-hc/revanced-magisk-module
    There's also a link to a telegram group.
    As far as I can see he is also the developer of the mindetach module to detach YT or YTM from playstore.

    For me it looks like a fork of ReVanced and a way to build it from source with updates to the magisk module on a almost daily base.
    Everyone should form his opinion by him/herself.

    Btw, anyone ideas about this issue?
    Any way to stream to Chromecast with the non-root version (17. 43.36)?
    Vanced team always said that it's microg to blame. Seems to be the same with Revanced? Or is there a way to fix it by patching?
    Streaming with a rooted device with j-hc magisk module works flawlessly,my non rooted device with apk from the same source and latest microg doesn't find Chromecast.
    Workaround for the moment is to send the YouTube URL to Web Vdeo Caster app but that's not very convenient.

    Hello Friends,

    I would like to share information about the true successor to the Vanced app. It is called ReVanced.

    The project page is located on the GitHub site.

    There you have all the information to build the patcher binaries(not the patched YouTube apk). Then patch the YouTube apk(must be official original apk) from the command line (instructions are there on how to do this).

    Building the binaries on your own can be overwhelming for many so the easiest way is to download the "ReVanced Manager" (needs Android 8 and above). Link is on the homepage.

    Unlike Vanced Manager, ReVanced Manager will not download any apk and microg (for non-root devices). It will show you the installed official YouTube version on which to apply the patch. It also allow you to specify an offline YouTube apk stored on your device which you want to patch. It will then display the list of available patches. You can choose the patches as per your requirement and apply them. Once the patches are applied successfully, you will see an option to install the patched apk as a non-root user or "install as root". My device is not rooted so I could not test it.

    If you are applying patches on the installed YouTube app, then depending on the patches you choose you may get the warning saying something like "split configuration detected. The patches you choose requires resource patching, hence you may encounter some errors".

    I was not sure what to do so I choose to apply patches on the offline apk.

    Important: The ReVanced Manager doesn't seems to recognise .apks or .xapk extensions so your offline apk needs to be a single apk (you can get the apk from trusted site like apkpure or find a way to extract the split apk's from the installed app and merge them into a single apk)

    One more thing the patched apk will not install over your existing installed official apk. So you must remove it first. I am also not sure if the patched apk will install over a previously patched apk created with the ReVanced Manager (It should be possible but I came across this project just last night and haven't really tested the various scenarios).

    Note: I am neither a contributor on this project nor I am associated with them in any way. I am just sharing something useful I came across.

    Thank you 🙂

    Hi all. 🙂

    I have been following the ReVanced project since shortly after it started.
    It is a big and still a young project so, there are some glitches and issues. 🙃
    - Some patches might not work or cause issues.

    I had some issues with the ReVanced Managers between v0.0.19 and v.0.0.26.
    YT and YT Music force close after patching with manager 22, 23, 24 and 25.​

    ReVanced does not currently support split-apks.
    v.0.0.19 was the last able to patch split-apk YT​

    The ReVanced Manager will not work on arm (armv7a) devices.
    You can patch arm files on an arm64 (armv8a) device.​

    I am still working on updating a Magisk module project that I started a few years ago but, never announced.
    Vanced asked that no one release an unofficial module once they created an official module.
    Since the official module was dead, I asked for permission to release a new module.
    A few years ago, due to changes in Android.
    I was looking for an easier way to use the root 'Vanced' version of YouTube on my device(s).
    Instead of manually replacing and setting permissions, I tested an idea (on a lot of devices and Android versions) to overlay the modified version over the stock installed version.
    The Vanced team adopted the idea into their Manager root install. 🙂
    - ReVanced does the same.

    But one of the main reason for my hesitation is this content regulation and moderation aspect of it. If I am owning a thread then am I not responsible for keeping the thread clean and ensuring it has relevant contents only?...

    Even as the first poster in the thread, not only are you not expected to moderate or regulate, you also do not have the ability to do so. That responsibility lies solely at the feet of the moderation team.

    Second reason is about active participation and contribution to the thread. Are you and others are really fine with the the owner of the thread himself being inactive for long duration and hardly having any real contribution other than few initial posts? If yes then I too am fine owning a thread.

    That's not a problem at all. Once the actual developer steps up and puts together a formal app/support thread for it, there's nothing wrong with linking it here.

    Well then , that sounds li8ke a job anyone do, even a moderator:sneaky:, to move all the OT discussion into its own thread.(y)

    😉 Your wish is now reality. ReVanced users rejoice!
