It is not syncing at all

What about post#2 FAQ? Did you read it? What about post#5 bugreport checklist? Did you read it?

Try disabling the main app, then use the manger to install..i

The app began working properly after a while. I think? Subscriptions began showing up. I did go back and forth between new and old Vanced & MicroG versions troughout the day.

Issue now being that ads are showing below videos nesr the comments. So just trying to find one with no ads. Thankfully no video ads at least.

I'm having an issue on my MiPad4 with the enable_detach file disappearing.
Can someone let me know what command I can add to create that file?
I tried a couple Linux command a without success I.e. sudo touch /root/cache/enable_detach and cat >> /root/cache/enable,_detache

I accidentally uninstalled micro-g. Then uninstalled YouTube vanced as the installation order matters. So I downloaded the manager application from the official website. However I cannot install the manager APK. I am running Android 11 beta 3, maybe this is what is causing the issue. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

I've done my best to get it to install, but maybe I'm just not smart enough.

I'm on a OnePlus 7 Pro running OB17, rooted with Magisk 20.4

Smali Patcher module is loaded and confirmed working, with signature verification disabled. I've also tried [Mod Edit: Reference to warez removed]. I checked both necessary boxes and reboot, but it never changes them.

I've tried it without smali patcher loaded as well.
Why don't u share the smali on the op7pro forums ? Also use the Xposed way it works for me

Is it safe to update stock YouTube every time I am proposed to by the Play store?

Here's the screenshot of the search results where I didn't find answer to that question:

    Sorry for the typo. "Sign in" 😂
    I did everything as required by the manager who installed the MicroG first and then the two versions of Vanced: First 15.43.32 and then 16.02.35.


    Yes. After the fail of the new version, I use v15.43.32 now.
    Did you sign in to the 15.43.32 version before letting Vanced Manager upgrade it to 16.02.35? That SHOULD work.

    No. I did the installation from scratch.
    I uninstalled all and followed the instructions from manager.

    New version of YouTube Vanced (16.02.35) with new version of MicroG (0.2.18. 210390), not working. I can't sing in to my accounts.
    Perhaps you don't have a great singing voice? ^_^

    You'll have to give us some more information though. Which steps did you follow? Did you respect the order of installation (MicroG first)? Using Vanced Manager?

    Jokes aside. v16 has had this issue of users not being able to sign in. Downgrading to 15.x solves the issue.
    Ah yes but the manager knows and guides the user through this; it's truly genius. Absolutely amazing how far a "silly" Xposed mod fork has come.

    Hey Guys! I've been using the non root YouTube Vanced for a while and the next two updates kinda broke it for me. When I start a video, the controls overlay (previous, pause, next) comes up and never disappears. If I downgrade, it works fine again. Has anyone seen this before and, more importantly, does anyone know a solution to this? Cheers
    I erratically have the same issue on my Samsung Galaxy S10e. If I restart the app, it seems to go away.

    Hit the home button making it go to the floating window. Expand the floating window again to bring the app up again. Then tap the video. All the controls will go back to normal
    at the top right there is an X. hit that and the controls disapear. I would *guess* there is also a setting somewhere to turn it off by default, but I haven't searched for it. Do a standard web search, as its probably the same with stock YouTube.

    No adguard but I have Adaway last wersion
    Yes, Adaway I meant. Don't know why adguard came in my mind.

    Whitelist *s.youtube.com in Adaway as mentioned in post 2 in this thread. Then history should work again.

    YouTube Vanced

    Vanced is a well known modded version of YouTube with many features such as adblocking and background playback, the full list can be found below:


    The one and only, official Vanced website There are other sites that are fake, contain ads (possibly even malware) and have older versions. Always check from the official site or from here at XDA.




    Read the first and second post before asking/posting anything.


    Features:
    • YouTube Vanced IS NOT YouTube Premium
    • Blocks all YouTube ADs (some options are togglable)
    • Background playback feature
    • Force VP9(or HDR) or vice versa
    • Override Max Resolution
    • Pinch to Zoom on all devices
    • Casting togglable (can be forced off)
    • Togglable Theme (White/Dark/Black)
    • PiP (Oreo Only)
    • Video window new or old style
    • Repeat video feature
    • Preffered Resolution & Speed feature
    • Swipe controls for Volume and Brightness
    • New Logo by @Logan

    Downloads:
    Vanced website (GDrive) (All versions)
    Alternative Mirrors: AFH (rarely updated) Mediafire (only the latest)

    Since YouTube v14.41.52, Google has moved to split APKs. The Android package installer doesn't support split apks yet, so we are using SAI as an Alternative apk installer.

    Installation Instructions:

    Non-Root:
    Steps:
    1. Download and Install microG Vanced (If you don't install microG, YouTube will crash on starup)
    2. Download latest version of YouTube Vanced
    3. Install Split APKs Installer (SAI) from Google Playstore
    4. Open Split APKs Installer (SAI) -> Install APKs -> Select the downloaded Vanced apks -> Install
    5. Done! Enjoy!

    For MIUI users, follow these instructions -> How to install v15 on MIUI

    Root:

    Since YouTube v14.41.52 Google has moved to the new APK Signature Scheme v3 and because of that it's impossible to mod system apps without disabling the android's system wide signature verification.

    THIS IS HIGHLY NOT RECOMMENDED. DO NOT DO THIS UNTLESS YOU DON'T REALLY CARE ABOUT SECURITY.

    Steps:
    1. Disable apk signature verification. (Don't ask us how to do it. we don't recommend doing it)
    2. Download latest version of YouTube Vanced
    3. Install Split APKs Installer (SAI) from Google Playstore
    4. Open Split APKs Installer (SAI) -> Install APKs -> Select the downloaded Vanced apks -> Install
    5. Done! Enjoy!

    Magisk:

    As we are disabling signature verfication, root version are installed to /data/app and /system/app. So magisk module is useless now and makes nonsense to us.
    Therefore, Magisk version is discontinued.


    Known bugs:
    1. What bugs? Never heard of them. :D
    2. Buying things within the nonroot version of the app causes crash. Likely due to MicroG but tbh, it's better this way for your security. Just use original youtube to buy the stuff you want.
    3. Ok, not really a bug but since people don't read it's experimental, ExoPlayer V2 might be causing crashes when coming back from background playback on some devices.
    4. Non-Root stuck on I Agree Page? -> https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=79419977&postcount=9772

    Old version info:

    Installation Instructions:NB!

    Non-root: Install the apk normally and install microg found in the download links above.

    Root:
    1. Download the official installer found in downloads above
    2. Select a suitable apk for your device (check your architecture using an app such as CPU-Z) and the secondary theme you want to. (All apks include the white theme)
    3. Place the downloaded apk into /sdcard/Downloads or inside the installation zip
    4. Uninstall all YouTube updates and disable auto-update in the playstore (If you are able to completely uninstall the youtube app do so)
    5. Flash the installer in TWRP
    6. Profit!
    Magisk:

    There are a total of 3 ways to install the module via magisk.
    The first and most simple way is to install it via the magisk repo and it is the recommended way.
    The second way is to place "Install via magisk.plz" or enable magisk install in the settings.sh from the root installer.
    The third and final way is to use the magisk modules provided on the Download Mirrors.
    Uninstall all YouTube updates and disable auto-update in the playstore (If you are able to completely uninstall the youtube app do so). Updated app will override the app installed in the system partition so even if the mod installation succeeds, you will not see it.


    Explanation of the (Ad)Vanced options of the official installer:
    Vanced makes use of both a settings.sh and plz files as parameters while installing.

    Using the settings.sh
    • SEARCHFOLDER - Path where to search for iYTBP Apk's (must be a subfolder on sdcard!)
    • MAGINSTALL - Use magisk installation instead of root installation. (Possible Values: YES/NO)
    • DETACH - Detach Youtube from playstore to disable update notifications. (Possible Values: YES/NO)
    • ATTACH - Attach Youtube to playstore if it was previously detached. (Possible Values: YES/NO)
    • UNINSTALL - Completely uninstall iYTBP: root version, magisk module and detach module (Possible Values: YES/NO)

    Using the plz files (Use only the ones you want)
    (All should be placed in /sdcard/Download/)
    • iYTBP_install_via_magisk.plz - Use magisk installation instead of root installation
    • iYTBP_detach_from_playstore.plz - Detach Youtube from playstore to disable update notifications.
    • iYTBP_attach_to_playstore.plz - Attach Youtube to playstore if it was previously detached.
    • iYTBP_uninstall.plz - Completely uninstall iYTBP: root version, magisk module and detach module.

    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 vaque (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?

    F.A.Q

    Q.Where did the normal(white) apk go??
    A.White is included in both versions choose the alternate theme you prefer for night time etc.

    Q. How to install updates ?
    A. Just download the latest apk and install as you previously did before.

    Q. Do I need to re-install detach script for every new YouTube Vanced update ?
    A. No!

    Q. Can I install this as I normally install any other apk ?
    A. Only the non root version.

    Q. Can I download videos with this ?
    A. No (and you never will)! but the official YouTube Offline Video feature is working in Supported countries.

    Q. Why is <xyz> variant not available to download ?
    A. We release 2 Unified builds of non root, one with the stock youtube theme and another with an amoled friendly theme. 8 root apks are provided, all of which are nodpi variants as google has become very aggressive in pushing updates that the only way to avoid it is using some form of detaching.

    Q. Installation successful but YouTube is not showing up in launcher, why ?
    A. You did not use the latest magisk version or installer. This only applied for Oreo.

    Q. Does 'Crop to fit' feature work for S8 and S8+ users ?
    A. Yes! It works on the rooted version but not in the non-root since the package name is changed. However, there is an alternative new Pinch to Zoom feature with basically the same functionality.

    Q. Is history working ?
    A. Yes! Make sure you whitelist *s.youtube.com in your adblocker. And non-root users need to check that they are not using a brand account due to MicroG bug. If you are, you need to merge the accounts to get the history working (YouTube Settings) Merging process will clean the current history.

    Q. Does PIP mode works ?
    A. Yes on Oreo Only!

    Q. When will you release the new version ?
    A. Usually within a couple of days after the official apk is available in apkmirror. But please don't ask for ETA!

    Q. Does background playback download video ?
    A. No, it does not. After going into background playback, you will only download audio so there will be much less data usage.

    Q. I can't login on Non-Root, I get stuck on the I agree page. What to do?
    A. For time being, use this workaround here.

    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.
