Yeah, please do bring back the dislikes. If it's even possible that is.
Well there are some plugins out there that work (for now). This is of course not the priority here but I do agree, would be a nice-to-have. @Team Vanced does have a track history of adding in all the good stuff 🤩
Thing is, on December 13-ish Big G will revoke this value completely from the API so such plugins would rely heavily on its userbase. I just wouldn't expect this to be implemented into Vanced unless at least one of these plugins becomes a major success after API removal.

Yeah, the OOS update came with preinstalled youtube version 16.30.xx, so now it seems impossible to install Vanced since its running on 16.29.39. I tried uninstall youtube with "adb uninstall --user 0 com.google.android.youtube" and succeeded, but can't seem to find a 16.29.39 apk that im able to install sadly. Hope there's a solution to this.

Oh, and thanks to the team for fixing the casting bug where the connection gets kicked/reset when connecting/reconnecting. Can now connect through multiple devices with Vanced and not have to worry about that.

I have the same problem with Xiaomi.

My solution was:

Delete Youtube with "App Manager" or a similar app.

Boot to TWRP

Go to [Mount], Enable only "Product" and go back.

Go to [Advanced], open the "Terminal" and write:

mount -o rw,remount /product

Go back to [Advanced] and open the "File Manager".

Click on "product/app/YouTube/YouTube.apk" and press "Delete".

-> Maybe you must delete the directory too.

Reboot to the system.

Start "Vanced Manager".

How to Mount the Product folder in TWRP?
I can't find it.

Only System or Vendor etc
Mountings are commonly different in live systems to TWRP. Have you checked for /system/product?

Also, running mount; or df -h; on your live system may give you a clue as to the source of the product partition. Even system/partition shows as a mount point.

No, you have the original YouTube - App and the version of Vanced simultaneously installed.

The root version replace the original with the Vanced version.

I'm rooted with SuperSU 2.82.
The installer does not work for me.

Where are the instructions for manual installation?

    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.

    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.

    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!
    Vanced Root (10 May 2022) .
    Seem blocked due to too old version ???

    The app icon disappear from home / drawer.

    But in my play store show youtube vanced without open botton
    only uninstall / update botton.
    Use systemless debloater magisk module, remove the pre installed youtube from your phone and install the root variant of vanced
    I have already detached it, following your directions. It is strange as it vanished (totally unistalled) , not updated. Since yours is working, I am gonna reinstall it. 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 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:



    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.
    3. Taking pictures of the problem doesn't hurt.
    4. If the report is vague (missing information), it will most likely just be ignored. If you are not going to show any effort in resolving the problem, why should I?
    Bug report template:
    1. Vanced exact version number (Do NOT say latest).
    2. Download link used to download Vanced.
    3. Installation method (whether user SAI or Vanced Manager)
    4. Device.
    5. ROM (optional may not help).
    6. Any applied Substratum/swift overlays.
    7. Logs if there are any crashes/force closes (upload to Pastebin or hastebin or katbin) and paste the link of it with your report. [Check here to know how to get logs]
    8. A brief description of the issue
    9. Any installed mods to the system.
    10. Test your issue on the stock youtube app
