The non-root version works perfectly fine on Android 13 (tested on Android 13 stable builds of OneUI, OOS and MIUI).

You can either disable YouTube app if required (so all YouTube links open in the Vanced app itself) or let both run independently.
Thank you. I never thought to try that, but it does seem to be working great.

Much appreciated

I have uninstalled youtube using adb is it possible to install root version without root.
You need access to restricted directories to place the modified file(s).
The modified version will not pass verification on boot.
You would have to find the correct file/folder permissions (owner, group, ...) to pass security if possible.
What works on one device, Android version, ... might or might not work on another.

You could disable the boot security but, that would require root level hacking.
Some form of root access would be needed.
Might be able to do it in a custom (root access) recovery but, I never looked into making the changes usin recovery. 🙃

---

Long story short..
It is the reason for using the mount command to overlay the modified version after verification during boot.

Where can i find youtube vanced root apk withou using vanced manager?
The Vanced team had asked that no one promote a non-official module so, I never did.
Part of the long story short... 🙃
My personal module (discontinued vanced version) - [ GitHub ] - Link
If you select one of the apk files, then History you will see a list of commits.
Select the version and you will get the apk files I used in that version of my module.
Select ... on the right side and View file, then you can download it. 🙂

Cheers. :cowboy:

PS.
I would suggest switching to ReVanced. ;)

Greeting,
I’ve installed Vanced (16.29.39) in my cars Android and it works fine. The issue is that all videos are in 240p maximum and can’t go above it even in settings, is there any way to fix it?
I’ve tried changing Codec to SM-T865 but no luck there…

Since Vanced is discontinued and youtube 16.29.39 is ancient, probably not.

Maybe try re-vanced (currently at 17.49.37) but no guarantees.

I've uploaded in attachments the vanced manager.apk which still working for me and download and install the app just fine for some reason. However keep in mind Vanced is outdated and EOL as mentioned by Timmmmaaahh and also it started to show ads in Homepage.

The new trend is ReVanced the evolution of Vanced, check my ▶️ReVanced & ReVanced Extended - Guides & Useful Links📚 thread.

Thank you this one works fine!
I tried Revanced before but the patch won't be applied if my phone is not rooted.
Glad that you guys still have Vanced manager backed up haha.

Thank you for fast and helpful response!

Did you followed my building & installation guides in my thread and didn't worked?
I also provide my "ready apks" which you can use.
If you want to try ReVanced and you have issues please refer (and ask) to my thread.

    Is anyone seeing this full page error now?

    Clicking on update takes to an error page on Google Play Store (obviously because this isn't from Google Play Store).

    I'm on version 15.43.32.

    Update

    Delete app data for YouTube Vanced solves the problem, but only temporarily. The message returns within a couple of hours if the app isn't running.
    That is Google's warning screen.
    Telling you that the version you have installed is EOL (End-Of-Life).

    v15.43.32 is old. 🙃

    The last version of Vanced was v17.03.38.
    - Supports Android 6 and newer.
    Home screen ads are now showing with Vanced v17.03.38.


    See my reply in my module thread. I gave a link to my last module using the Vanced patched apk and how to install it.

    Try ReVanced (link in post above yours)

    Hello,
    I know Vanced is discontinued but I reinstalled it on a Pixel 7 yesterday. I had to downgrade to version 16.02.35 to get the cast functionality. However, I am not able to play/pause the video on my Android TV using my TV remote control (but it works with the official YouTube app). I am pretty sure it used to work with Vanced too, but I don't have to my old phone to confirm that. Do you have any suggestion ?

    Revanced and Revanced Extended have full cast functionality only with the root version as far as I know.
    The same was the case in Vanced, only exception YouTube builds 16.02.35 and below. Vanced team stated that it's a microG related problem.
    I found this and this issue on GitHub about casting and the need to patch microG for that.

    The second way (settings - watch on TV) seems to work, but I don't own a smart TV and for Chromecast I found no way to get it working.

    Thanks. My previous phone was rooted, that's probably why the cast functionality was better.
    I will give Revanced a try anyway, probably coupled with SmartNextTube
    The second way you proposed works, but it's not convenient. I need to enter a code provided by YouTube on my TV and I have to repeat the same steps everytime I relaunch the app.

    ‼️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.

    1. Make sure you are being enough descriptive of the problem.
