After my Oneplus Oxygen 12 Update...... YouTube is on the latest update. I tried uninstalling it and then downloading an older version of youtube that can be patched with Vanced, but it wont let me install it. Any idea why I cannot install an older version of YouTube after uninstalling it?

I keep getting updated against my will on the play store. mostly YouTube music. now that it's discontinued I really just need a copy of the last APK so I can replace stock when that update happens. what can I do to find it? Android 11 pixel 4a fwiw

I've tried the latest versions from apkmirror and pureapk but they just fc immediately after showing the sign in screen

I asked here and no one gave me a workable solution. I was trying to install the root version of Vanced, but I couldn't downgrade YouTube to do it.

I figured out there is a LSPosed module called XDowngrader and I was able to install an older version over the current YouTube. Then I followed a YouTube tutorial to install the rooted version. If you updated your phone and lost the rooted version of YouTube Vanced... Do the LSPosed module and the YouTube tutorial. I also installed another module called update locker to keep the play store from updating it.

is this all the same for YouTube music? I haven't had any issues lately with YouTube itself but since getting a car I have become dependent on YouTube music.

for the record I followed the instructions got the latest yt music APK and used sai to install stock then manually copied the root APK over to replace the stock base APK and it's working for now. I imagine it doesn't survive a reboot without some special mounting script though am I right

It should survive a reboot. What it will not survive is a play store update. I have the LSPosed module blocking the YouTube update. You need install LSPosed and the update locker module. That will prevent the play store from updating the app.

If you did a manual one off install / replace in place, it sounds like it may stick through a reboot. Not sure, but it sounds like you have a RW system. The remount on booty is normally required for RO system partitions.

As for the playstore, apart from LSposed, you also have the detach method in my app TeMeFI.

Having a weird issue. I finally have the root version running and play store updates blocked. The app doesn't even show on updates with the old version installed. For some reason, if I reboot the phone YouTube gets updated to v.17.11.34, but the latest version is v.17.32.38. I have a OnePlus 8 on oxygen os 12.1. Why would the phone update the app during a reboot?

Is it being up[dated by the playstore, or is the mounting on boot failing in Magisk?

how are you blocking updates?

    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 🙂

    ‼️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 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.

    New site up https://vanced.azurewebsites.net/ with latest version of YouTube as base (13.10). Includes some bugfixes and other changes detailed on discord. At the time of writing this post apkmirror lacks apks for arm so you will have to wait a while until it has them and then we will be able to make arm root builds.
