Same here..the latest Vanced manager 2.5.0(weed) asks for root permission.
I'm using non root version tho..
They only way it can ask for root permission is if YOU selected to give it root permission the very first time you launched the app. That allowed magisk to add it to it's list of root apps that would then, after manager update, would ask again for root access.
The app hasn't changed. Your setup and the way you initially set up vanced manger is why it asks for root.

I have a suggestion for Vanced, if it's possible. I know it's an annoyance with the regular Youtube app, so maybe this can't be fixed in Vanced, but I would love to see it.

What happens is I think there's like a 4 or 5 notification limit for Youtube Vanced. What that means is while I am sleeping, if I get 5 or more notifications for channels I subscribe to, I will never see the first one I got. I have missed out on a lot of great new videos because I had no idea a new video was posted.

Is there any way to increase the number of notifications to, like say 10, or infinite? I am not sure why this arbitrary number of 4 or 5 was chosen by Youtube but being able to get around it would be great!

I'm at a bit of a loss for installing this. Since the manager doesn't want to install vanced for me I've tried to install youtube vanced over adb but I have to force it to downgrade (since this is why it doesn't want it to install in the manager) but I can't figure out how to do that in combination of doing the whole split APK install thing. I just don't have enough experience. Any suggestions?

I don't know if the developer are aware, buti thing the microg is not working properly, if I log in you tube not work, the page stay blank and spinning like trying to look for something. Sorry if you guys don't understand my point or explanation.
I'm having this issue too. I can't sign in to youtube vanced, it's doing the same thing for me.

Did you un-install both youtube and microg? And trying to use the vance manager?

Yeah. Nonroot. The issue is when I try to install Youtube Vanced (from the manager) it shoves me an INSTALL_FAILED_VERSION_DOWNGRADE error. I've tried to use SAI to manually install the apks as well but it gives the same error. I've seen other people around with the same issue very recently but no answers. From what it looks like for some reason it thinks youtube vanced is still installed when it really isn't. I don't know why this happened in the first place but my best guess is the uninstall button from the manager was bugged or something. I uninstalled it in the first place to try and fix the login bug that everyone's been getting, except for course, now I can't reinstall it.

With YouTube as a user (not system) app, I find it easiest and less prone to issues by simply replacing the base.apk manually - no magisk module.
I'm revising my comment to say for now the most reliable method, if not using Vanced Manager, is this magisk module.

Without explanation, my manual replacement of the YouTube base.apk disappeared after some time. Attempts to reinstall and replace failed, both by file manager and recovery file explorer. YouTube's data/app folder would disappear completely after reboot (leaving behind its data/data folder - and perhaps other reference files - when reinstalling YouTube the system would ask if I wanted to upgrade YouTube from version "null"). Only using @i5lee8bit magisk module worked. The module itself simply replaces the apk file and that's it, so I don't know why only the module works. But it does. Something involving the timing of replacing the apk immediately after the file system loads I'd guess.

The only comment I'd add to @i5lee8bit instructions are to do a full backup first. Modifying the installed data apk's can cause issues. When I first uninstalled the module after testing it, I had an sdcard read error after reboot - a full black screen non-bootable error message - which was luckily corrected on the next reboot. File system errors like this are usually solved by the AndroidOS, but there could be an edge case of data loss.

Thanks @i5lee8bit for your module.

Exactly the same issue here. Cannot find a way to reinstall Vanced because Vanced Manager says that I must install v15.43.32 ver. first, but on the other hand Android not allows the downgrade. Uninstalled everything but it seems that somewhere v16 history is still there...Any suggestions?

Yes, same here.

Since new update Vanced is stuck at loading loop, it keeps spining and spinning blue circle in app but doesn't load anything from youtube?

I'm on the newest non root version of vanced 12.06.35 and micro g 02.16.204713, installed via the manager

For some weeks now, the YouTube history does not get synced anymore

Already tried several clean installs and reboots

Using a Note10 plus with android 11 and oneui 3

NON-ROOT Vanced and official YT act as two different apps, you can have them both installed in parallel and you can update the offiial YT, it will not affect the non-root Vanced

However, you must not update YT from Playstore if you have ROOT Vanced, because the newer official YT version will overwrite your (older version) root Vanced
In my configuration, non rooted YT Vanced with MicroG on rooted device, and separate official YT is working fine. But anyway after some days I get updates from official YT, which does nothing and remain as "waiting for update" in the Play Store. I understand that I can update now and should not influence the modified version. Vanced manager is updated as well the necessary packages. Do you have any hint?

Previously it was like that but I can't guarantee, since recently I don't have a not-rooted phone with the non-root YTV

Same here. I am using Note 20 non root. Youtube vanced wont load. Stock youtube works fine. If I uninstall microG, youtube vanced works all right - so I assume microG got some problem with access my google account. Btw in settings my google account is under microg section.

Yup. That's what I'm experiencing too for some days now. Infinite loop when logged in, fine when logged out. You don't have to uninstall Microg, just remove microg google account in settings. LG V35.

This should fix it for you guys. I would also advise that you go to the settings in Vanced Manager and clear downloaded files before completing the steps -- just to make sure you're downloading and installing the correct version.

The login issue is a bug in the latest version of microg. Hopefully it will be fixed in the next release. Here's the workaround from a few pages back:

Edit: It's been mentioned multiple times so I'll repost sronweb's well written tutorial instead of my quick one.

1. Uninstall both vanced microG & YouTube Vanced
2. Install vanced microG(latest)
3. Install YouTube Vanced (version: 15.43.32)/ YouTube Music Vanced (version 4.07.51)
[Click on install > click on arrow next to version > select anything except the first two options > save > Install]
4. Open YouTube Vanced then add an account
5. Open Vanced Manager
6. Then update YouTube Vanced (version: latest-16.02.35) / YouTube Music Vanced (version - 4.11.50)

That has worked on half a dozen devices for me using the the non-root version on both rooted and non-rooted devices.
