Hello, I followed instructions to block Vanced from being seen from PlayStore, and being updated and remplaced by official YouTube app, and it is working fine. After a reboot, youtube is no more seen by PlayStore as espected.
Unfortunatly here come the weird part, every morning Vanced is no more present on my phone, how come? and stranger is that it is not remplaced by Official YouTube. Back then, I experienced this replace issue, and I kind of know how it looks, PlayStore Auto update apps, and Official Youtube is back, sucks. So back then I used SudoHide, and it worked fine for around more than 2 years.
This time, I am on Android 12, so Magisk 24, I decide to give a shot to Zygisk-LSPosed + DenyList + HideMyApp.
It works fine to hide Vanced YouTube from PlayStore, but I dont understand why the heck, is Vanced gone every morning?
Anybody experiencing such issue??
Also about DenyList, I did not catch very well what app need to be selected there. What should be selected related to Vanced "hiding" from PlayStore ?? or this feature like old goody MagiskHide is more suited for apps such as Banking apps, which detected rooted device?
Thx for any enlightment.
Did you read post #20535, half a day earlier than yours. Seems you have also that issue with verification

Btw, I'm still on A11 and I use Vanced root v16.29.39 (the last but one) and I have no problem with loosing YT or anything (Hide My Apps keep it detached from Playstore, preventing it from being updated). I reboot every few days and Vanced root stays installed and running

Bug Report

High CPU load caused by logcat spamming, on latest Vanced YouTube / YouTubeMusic app in combination with latest AdAway app or just their official hosts.txt. Same applies for Magisk systemless hosts module.

I had reported (wrongly) this issue firstly to the AdAway team. But they correctly stated that it's app specific issue.

Anyway, I'm not 100 % sure if it's an issue introduced by Vanced-Team or it's just a Google issue.

Workaround
remove
from /system/etc/hosts. (save and reboot)

I don't know if this issue is ever going to get fixed or not because Google has taken legal action against Vanced developers to take it down and they have done so on their official website.

I hope they come back with a rename "VanceTube" just like SmartTube app for TV which I say is the TV version of Vanced.

I am using Hide my App and I hide vanced from PlayStore. The even more strange thing, is that it was replaced with YouTube version 16.xx.xx. This is not the last version from PlayStore! Maybe it is the factory version. I don't know.

I can't answer your last question, as I am not an expert. Just a clarification : my previous installation was based on replacing manual base.apk (dark or black) to data/app...

Last but not least, thank you very much for your time and help.
You just need to turn off Auto Update on YouTube on playstore. That's all. Or just install The non root version of vanced through vanced manager and make the settings in it's app property to open up YouTube related links by default while disabling the same for The original YouTube app.

remove
from /system/etc/hosts. (save and reboot)
With the read-only SAR systems (modern Android versions), you can not edit /system/etc/hosts - in that case you need to use Systemless hosts, and then you would have to edit instead /data/adb/modules/hosts/system/etc/hosts file

Besides, you edit the hosts file but AdAway will later update from the hosts sources and will add your removed sites back to the hosts (Blocked list)

Hence simply add your mentioned sites to the AdAway Allowed list and reboot - that's what for the Allowed list in AdAway serves to!

Hi! Does anyone know how to force vanced app to use mp4 encoding? Because the framerate lowers a ton while playing videos higher than 480p on my phone, and with another app and forcing mp4 video codec works at 1080p without any issue

Help please.
Vanced version : 17.... but vanced app disnt show any update after v14
Now I'm not able to sign in. Should I install new Micro G.
Or anybody know where to get Non root vanced.
From their faq:
- if you are getting a connection error, and cannot load YouTube.

• Be sure you installed the latest MicroG version along with the latest Vanced version. Make sure you install MicroG APK before you install the Vanced APK.

• If you've recently changed your password or modified anything on your Google account, you'll need to log out, uninstall MicroG and Vanced, reinstall MicroG then Vanced, and then log back in.

• If you have 2-Factor-Authentication on your Google account and encounter the error, remove it, log in to MicroG, then you can add it back to your account.

• You can also try clearing app data (system settings > apps > MicroG for Vanced > storage > clear app data, and repeat the same for the Vanced app).

• Disabling battery optimization for both of the apps (instructions can be found here) might also be helpful.

• Removing your account from MicroG/Vanced can also help.

The last Microg apk --> here
The last vanced youtube --> here

Use systemless debloater magisk module, remove the pre installed youtube from your phone and install the root variant of vanced

I wish there was a way to hide the recommandations in the search results, they take so much entries and always show awful content, like hide everything thats not directly about the words search etc

Not. You have to set Template with YouTube and Effective app applying that template to Google Play

Please there are several details that count, carefully read my guide I did post earlier here:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/app-mod-root-nonroot-vanced.3758757/post-85828495
Maybe you can help me with this. I was trying out a Magisk module https://www.xda-developers.com/basic-call-recorder-magisk-module/ and it wasn't loading. I was told by the Dev that maybe the LSPosed Hide My Applist had a check mark on System Framework Recommended was the problem. I tried to removing the check mark and reboot.... and now my OP8 is stuck on the boot logo loading and it never loads. Has anything like that happened to you with Hide My Applist on LSPosed?

I was thinking I could re-flash the stock rom again, but the Full version of OOS 12 C.16 is not out.... Only the incremental from C.15 to C.16. Is there a way to completely remove LSPosed within TWRP?

Sorry, don't know anything about your Call Rec module for OP

If you want to use HMA, I can comment only as a user that I have accepted the checkmarks offered by default, expecting that's what's needed for the beginning

Generally, if you (now) have a bootloop caused by improperly set a (Magisk) module.- please go to Magisk GitHub, Wiki, there is a chapter with few methods to resolve the problem (some method may not work for a particular device bcs eg maybe you don't have TWRP, etc).

So please read and try yourself on your device. I don't know how could you safely disable the HMA module as part of LSPosed eg through TWRP (if you have TWRP you could maybe find and delete the HMA folder from /data/adb) - but by following that Magisk Wiki there are methods to disable a Magisk module: in your case it would be the whole LSPosed.
Then you should be able to boot and then you will find out what could you do (uninstall LSPosed with all its modules, or only to uninstall HMA or if you could reconfigure back the HMA to work)

    Just download Vanced Manager from here, and install YouTube Vanced as previously.
    So just download an app from a website that's trying to look the official vanced site but isn't and then install it and run it?

    Not recommended.

    Vanced Manager is back....

    https://youtubevanced.com/ this is the site... Hope it's clean. My antivirus didn't warn me...
    The official site is https://vancedapp.com/
    Don't rely on anti virus, just check the first post of this thread for the info 👍

    https://youtubevanced.com/ this is the site... Hope it's clean. My antivirus didn't warn me...
    I don't know if it is safe but it is NOT their official site. As I said, just be careful ;)
    edit: Maybe run the package through virustotal just to be safe.

    What is the source of this information?

    ‼️Before asking or posting anything, please read the first and second posts.‼️

    Always check the official Vanced website or XDA thread when downloading. Other sites are fake, contain advertisements (possibly even malware), and have older versions.

    Vanced Banner-01-01.png

    Vanced is a well-known modded version of the YouTube app with many features such as ad-blocking and background playback. Vanced also offers some extra features to enhance the user experience. The entire list is available below:

    Features:



    INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:

    Since YouTube v14.41.52, Google has moved to split APKs format. The Android package installer doesn't support Split apks yet, so we are now using Vanced manager for installing all vanced apps. The steps to use the vanced manager are below:
    Especially for MIUI, there's a separate guide that can be accessed using this link. For all other devices, please follow below:

    For Non-Root:
    1. Install Vanced Manager
    2. Open Vanced Manager and tap the blue arrow in the lower right corner.
    3. Begin installing Vanced microG. (Without which you won't be able to install Vanced (or Music Vanced) or use login)
    4. Then install Vanced (or Music Vanced), log in to your account and enjoy!
    For Root:
    1. Install Vanced Manager
    2. Open Vanced manager and tap on the "Magisk" icon to grant root permissions.​
    3. Once you are in, begin installing Vanced (or Music Vanced).​


    Important information:

    • We replaced our root installation with vanced manager, which directly mounts vanced on top of Youtube in the /data/app directory, making it easier and faster than before.
    • Vanced will not block ads while casting since when you use the casting feature, it doesn't send the video from your phone to the Chromecast/TV. Instead, your phone acts like a remote controller for the youtube app in your Chromecast/TV. That is why the advertisement is displayed.
    • Purchasing items in the non-root version of the app will not work as microG doesn't support it. Hence, it is preferable to use the original YouTube app or using the web version for any purchase.
    • If your videos are lagging or the application starts to crash while watching live videos, please enable VP9 codec from codec override present under vanced settings. Google forced the ExoPlayer v2, which is highly experimental and unstable on unsupported devices.
    • YouTube has dropped support for Android 5 (Lollipop) with v17.xx.xx. Hence, the minimum supported version is now Android 6 and above.


    Known bugs:

    • Swipe down gesture for refreshing home feed breaks randomly. It's an issue with litho that only Google can fix. There's nothing we can do to fix it. (Tap here to learn more)
    • As of v16.16.38, casting won't work due to an upstream microG bug. (Tap here to learn more)
    • On portrait/vertical videos, preferred quality options do not work.
    • Swipe controls triggers when swiping either upwards or downwards to scroll through description or in live chat when in landscape mode.
    • On new action bar layouts(server-sided feature), the new toggles won't work.
    • Info cards toggle is broken (Temp fix: Disable it through your Google account settings. This setting disables info cards everywhere.)
    • App crashes with java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError while playing some video outside of vanced.
    • Manual codec override is broken and very experimental.
    • Some users might face geographical ads on YouTube Shorts tab.
    • SponsorBlock segments at the end of videos in playlists causes playback on the next video to start where the previous one ended.

    BUG Reports:


    Steps to do before reporting a bug:
    1. Do a search and see if it has already been reported
    2. Check that the bug is actually a Vanced bug and doesn't happen in the original YouTube.
    Steps to do when reporting a bug:
    1. Make sure you are being enough descriptive of the problem.
    2. Take a logcat (Google search if you don't know how). Especially if the issue is a crash.
