    I use mixplorer which has a search function and will search your whole device for any files or folders that match the keyword you choose, in this case 'youtube'.
    Anyway I have also had problems in the past installing from vanced manager. Try downloading youtube version 15.43.32 from apk mirror, install using SAI and then install this magisk module.
    Here is a link to the devs Github so u can get the latest version if you like. I just haven't got around to updating yet.
    In MiXplorer there is also Tools, Remove App remnants option that will show the files remaining from the removed apps and so

    Thank you for your assistance.
    I fixed it by uninstalling the stock youtube app with the help of sd maid and then installing vanced with the manager.

    tried rooted apks and method with the mannager, does not seems to work.
    please provide a proper download link for all the resources!

    the manager got stuck download few APKs,
    but when I've tried to installed them, there were signature errors,
    I've moved them to my PC, removed the old RSA signature, repacked, signed and aligned (in jarsigner use first sign then align, apksigner uses first align then sign),
    and copied them back, now the manager passed the signature verifications,
    but the APKs does not seems to be having "base", I assume it is either one of the bigger ones, but I was done wasting my time: headed over to APKMIRROR and got the latest blonde from Vanced Team, got a mod version of the APKMIRROR-INSTALLER from APKMB and installed it.

    APKMIRROR have not include the root version, which is a shame. I'm on a custom firmware of LineAge OS, natively rooted and very slim in terms of pre-installed packaged. built-in apps (including youtube) are not a problem.

    I'm even tried modified the package name from com.vanced.android.youtube to com.google.android.youtube (android manifest and few SMALI files), but something is OFF, and it didn't brought in standard functionality (still requires microG).

    anyway, I'm not sure there are actuall limitation enforced from the Google Play services regarding YouTube official signature, so it will get authenticated naively, but maybe there are...

    I've used lucky patcher, toolbox menu, checked ON first one: "signature verification status always true" and second one "disable .apk signature verification", and applied. it was rebooted the device, and after it went up it shows (in the toolbox menu) that the patch were applied successfully.

    =-=-=-=-=

    Please the structure of https://vancedapp.com/ so it will have proper, clear and understandable instructions in one page, without that nasty jumps, or javascript pagination of the table, or hooking clicks on table "TR/TD" elements instead of a click - WHO DOES THIS???

    I feel the whole thing can be documented better,
    less confusing mess - means more users without extensive knowledge in reverse-engineering to check-box weird cases to figure out why the app does not work.
    and get rid of the "installer" it is a very iffy idea. people do not trust those, and it automatically gets blocked in various security apps as malicious.


    =-=-=-=-=

    as of now, no success installing anything but the non-root version from apkmirror with apkmirror installer. I'm not intend of using microG.
    If you don't like YTV Manager (?), either don't use rooted YTV or read back through this thread, or use search (avialable if accessing XDA via browser) to find the posts about installing YTV root as a Magisk module.
    See e.g.:

    Btw, it's a pretty bad idea (and against the Magisk documention that can be found on Magisk Github site and costom ROM developers who want to play with Magisk should read and be aware of) to build-in Magisk into the custom ROMs. Sooner or later (specially if the smart developer also built-in Magisk Manager as a system app), you and other users will have problems when updating Magisk.

    Does the high quality streaming option work in the YouTube Music Vanced edition, like it does in the regular YT Music premium subscription? In other words, is the streaming bit rate capable of 256kbps? Thanks in advance for any responses.
    It doesnt stream 256kbps unless you do have premium account even if the toggle is unlocked been tested by testers and devs

    No. I've been using my own Google account for a few years and never had any issues. Pretty sure I'm not the only one.

    Worst that can happen? Google tells you you've been naughty and asks you not to be naughty anymore. They're not going to suddenly ban you from all their products for blocking ads.

    Try when you first enable Install via USB from Developer options. Vanced asks to disable MIUI optimzations, also from Developer options (but for me enabling installations via USB was enough)

    Thank you , I just read a few things about people using fake accounts to protect themselves , I've been using it for a while and never had any issues with the devs ( knowing my Google data etc ) or issues with Google , thanks

    I think not seeing ads or removing them is users right and YT agrees with that. Thats why VYT isnt banned by google
    Exactly! It just like using an add blocker, there is nothing Google can do about it. If vanced were to say start adding the premium paid features to the app deliberately bypassing the paywall then they would be shut down by Google. But removing adds and adding there own tweaks or features to the app is ok. I don't think anyone's account has ever been banned for using vanced.

    From browsing different sites on the web about it people were wanting / asking to make sure that using their own Google account with the vanced Devs was ok and not at risk too , I've never had an issue tbh

    Posting this in hopes of helping anyone avoid the couple of hours of grief I had with the dreaded spinning circle when opening YouTube Vanced.
    • Issue: installed Vanced Manager and chose path for rooted device (running LineageOS for Microg in case you're wondering).
    • Opened YT Vanced
    • Added Google account, relaunched
    • Spinning Circle, not connected.
    • Tried, reinstall, clear data etc, to no avail
    • Installed Manager again and choose install for non-rooted devices and got a message that there was an issue with V16 and you had to install v15 first then update... same message isn't in the root version
    • uninstalled manager, reinstalled
    • Chose rooted version V15 (at bottom of install page)
    • Added account and logged in. Works!
    • reran manager, chose upgrade (make sure to select v16 at bottom of install page as above)
    • Bingo, all good

      Hi, I had just updated Vanced app to 16.16.38 . This latest version does not has a EXPLORE TAB in the bottom bar instead it has a Tab for SHORTS!!!View attachment 5309751
      Can it be replaced back with Explore Tab??
      View attachment 5309753
      The in-layout of app is syjced with Google updates. I mean whatever changes google makes to OFFICIAL YOUTUBE APP, the same is reflected in VANCED VERSION too. Google recently replaced The "EXPLORE" TAB with SHORTS tab. Its good for those who want to use the latest layout by google but VANCED can change this thing!!! Afterall Vanced is a Mod-apk, it can get Explore tab from website to sit in the bottom bar.
      I have attached screenshots of older ytb version and latest Vanced version with SHORTS tab. See for more details! :-]

      You seem so convinced that the Vanced team can/wants to change this, you must have some profound insights I'm not aware of. Without even saying the magic word... painful 😬

      I'm on the same version as you are and I still see 'Explore'; this means it's regulated server side. Sooo..... #BlameGoogle

      [Self edit] Quoted post removed
      Yes, it is based on region updates by GOOGLE. It is not a VANCED feature but rather a Google Feature.

      If u r not from India(Asian country) then u will have different ytb version and features.

      I am asking to address this issue by VANCED team in my region as Vanced is a MOD APK. And Mod can do things which normal apps can't.
      Using that tone, you are not asking or requesting anything, you are telling Vanced to address this non-issue. Please don't patronize me or anyone else on this forum, it's awfully disrespectful. About respect: I'm still not seeing any magic word in the above. Now will you please drop this pointless discussion? You have made your point clear enough.

      Especially your "better apps then this!!!!" statement is not welcome here. Address your fellow human beings with the respect and love they deserve.

      Bro i have bone rooted vanced 16.16.38. My brightness goes down to 0% in fullscreen automatically. Idk how to solve it. I just turned off SWIPE controls for brightness.
      But swipe controls is a must, that is the best advantage of this vanced app

      I don't know what "MAGIC WORDS" you are talking about. Sorry i dont get it.
      Also sorry if u were hurt. I am sorry i did not mean to disrespect you. Please don't take it personaly.

      It will be helpful if u can address this issue as a regional update by google. Please. I am looking forward to a positive response from u to help people in my region from a google bug! Please help.
      It's not a bug, it's by design. No one will help you on that here, that's why It's not useful to keep bringing it up. It's essentially off-topic.
      Oh, I wasn't talking about just any magic words, I was talking about THE magic word.
      Barney always has the solution :)

      ***Magisk Files for YT Vanced v16.14.34***

      For more background info, and installation / troubleshooting info, see this post: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=83741225&postcount=17198

      YouTube 16.14.34 .APKS / YouTube Vanced 16.14.34 Magisk Modules:
      YouTube-Vanced-16.14.34-Dark_Magisk.zip: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=2188818919693788242
      YouTube-Vanced-16.14.34-Black_Magisk.zip: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=2188818919693788243
      Stock YouTube 16.14.34 APKS (.zip file): https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=2188818919693788244
      (sorry, AFH doesn't allow uploads of .apks files, so I zipped up the stock apks file before uploading)

      note: btw the module id tags are the same in each module, so you can easily switch between dark and black by simply flashing the other module and rebooting.

      -------------------------------------------------

      * For some reason, on my older devices (Nougat), from an existing Magisk install, I can simply install the new APKS, then flash the new module with the new version and reboot, and the app works perfectly. Basically just a simple "upgrade" with all settings intact.

      * But then I've noticed on my newer devices (Pie, Q, and R), doing that exact same procedure will cause the app to force close after rebooting, making it necessary to follow the steps I outlined in my previous post that I linked at the top of this post. Not really a huge deal, just annoying and need to redo the settings and preferences. However, it does seem to update properly without issues by simply adding just one additional step before the upgrade - disabling or deleting the old Magisk module first and rebooting, then updating.

      ****************
      So basically, probably the safest steps to update from my previous module versions would be:
      - Disable or delete my old Magisk module. REBOOT.
      - Install new version APKS via SAI.
      - Flash my new version Magisk module. REBOOT.
      And like usual, from here you can change between dark and black theme by just flashing the other and rebooting.
      ****************


      I think it may have something to do with the way the newer SDK levels handle split APK installs. I think perhaps having the Magisk module enabled when updating YouTube causes some components to be unable to fully install - but only on newer versions of Android. Ultimately, my older devices can skip the one added step of removing my old Magisk modules before updating, but in either case it wouldn't hurt to go with the steps I outlined above - it's more of a failsafe method that works in both scenarios.

      Tested on my Google Pixel 4 XL [R], Google Pixel 4 [R], HTC U12+ [Pie], Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+ [R], and Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite w/ LineageOS 17.1 [Q]: using update process above = smooth upgrade.


      ---------------------------------------------------
      And here are the custom YouTube Vanced app logos, for those where it's not showing up for some reason. Use these if your launcher allows changing app icons:

      EDIT: uploaded the new custom YT Vanced app logos - obvious which ones are which by filenames.

      ...and finally, of course, the biggest thanks of all is reserved to the entire Vanced development team! Thanks for continuing the work on this project!

      @celestialspring @Punkisn @kang_mus @ByeByeTango @robalm @f_d2016 @grzenio_l @[email protected] and to whom it may concern

      Announcement from @Team Vanced on Telegram:
      The new "video quality preference" is a feature rolled out by Google itself with version 16.14.34, and it is not implemented in any way by the vanced team, which has led to user confusion and dissatisfaction with the new update. Apparently, with Google's forced implementation, the vanced "preferred video quality" feature breaks, resulting in excessive data consumption while watching videos.

      To resolve this, please disable vanced "preferred video quality" for the time being by setting it to auto, and then you can easily use the new video preferences.

      Please be patient for future updates until the vanced team receives the feature, as it is not rolled out to everyone as part of A/B testing.

      YouTube Vanced 16.16.38 and YouTube Music Vanced 4.25.52 has been released!

      Battery drain is fixed now 😁
    • 1611
      ‼️Before asking or posting anything, please read the first and second posts.‼️

      YouTube Vanced

      SrSEsV2.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:


      • 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 (Android 8.0+)
      • Video window new or old style
      • Repeat video feature
      • Preferred Resolution & Speed feature
      • Swipe controls for Volume and Brightness
      • Sponsorblock integration
      • Tap to seek feature
      • Copy video link + with timestamps feature
      • New Logo by @Logan



      Always check the official Vanced website or XDA thread when downloading. Other sites are fake, contain advertisements (possibly even malware), and have older versions.

      Downloads:

      If your network is down or the website isn't loading, you can download vanced manager from the GitHub page.

      Alternative Mirrors for Older versions below v14.x releases:

      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:

      INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:


      Especially for MIUI, there's a separate guide that can be accessed using this link.

      For Non-Root:
      1. Download and install the latest Vanced Manager using our official Vanced website.
      2. Open Vanced Manager and tap the blue arrow in the lower right corner.
      3. Begin installing Vanced microG. (This app is mandatory to install if you want to login with your Google account)
      4. Then install YouTube Vanced (or YouTube Music Vanced), log in to your account and enjoy!
      For Root:
      1. Download and install the latest Vanced Manager using our official Vanced website.​
      2. Open Vanced manager and tap on the "Magisk" icon to grant root permissions.​
      3. Once you are in, begin installing YouTube Vanced (or YouTube Music Vanced).​

      Important information:


      • Disabling "APK signature verification," which was previously required, is no longer needed.
      • The magisk version has been discontinued and removed from the magisk repository since Google has switched to Split APKs format. 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.


      Known bugs:


      • Purchasing items in the non-root version of the app causes the app to crash. It's most likely due to MicroG. However, for greater security, it is preferable to use the original YouTube app.
      • 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.
      • As of v16.16.38, casting won't work due to an upstream microG bug.
      • On portrait/vertical videos, preferred quality options do not work.



      Installation guide for old versions:



      Non-Root:



      1. Download and install the Vanced microG using the latest Vanced manager
      2. Download the necessary Vanced APK file using the old versions link above.
      3. Install the APK like you would for any other app.


      Root:


      1. Download the official TWRP installer found in the downloads above
      2. Download the suitable APK of the theme you want for your device (check your architecture using an app such as CPU-Z)
      3. Place the downloaded APK into a separate new folder with the TWRP installer zip you downloaded or inside the installer zip
      4. Uninstall all YouTube updates and disable auto-update in the play store (If you can completely uninstall the youtube application)
      5. Flash the installer in TWRP
      6. Profit!


      Magisk:



      There are a total of 2 ways to install the magisk version.
      • The first and most effective way is to install it via the Magisk app. Since we have discontinued the Magisk version and removed it from the magisk repository, you can get the last available magisk version using this link.
      • The second way is to place "Install via magisk.plz" alongside the official installer zip or enable magisk install in the settings.sh and flash via the magisk app.
      Note: Make sure you have uninstalled the stock YouTube app or at least uninstalled its updates below v14.21.54. A newer version will override the vanced installation, preventing you from seeing vanced in your app drawer.



      Explanation of the (Ad)Vanced options of the official installer:


      Vanced makes use of both 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 the play store to disable update notifications. (Possible Values: YES/NO)
      • ATTACH - Attach Youtube to play store 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)



      (Place the downloaded file in the same folder as the official installer zip)
      • iYTBP_install_via_magisk.plz - Use magisk installation instead of root installation
      • iYTBP_detach_from_playstore.plz - Detach Youtube from play store to disable update notifications.
      • iYTBP_attach_to_playstore.plz - Attach Youtube to play store 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 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?

      F.A.Q:


      Q.Where did the normal(white) apk go??
      A. White is included in both versions by default as a primary theme. Simply choose the alternate theme you prefer for the night time then use it accordingly with your system theme.

      Q. How to install updates?
      A. When using vanced manager, simply tap on the "update" button to begin updating your vanced. If you are installing an older version, just download the latest apk and install it 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 the <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. Use the latest vanced manager and choose the theme and language you would like to install.

      Q. Installation successful but YouTube is not showing up in launcher, why?
      A. If you are facing this issue that means you are not using vanced manager. Please use vanced manager to install vanced applications. If you are installing old versions of root variants, make sure the stock youtube app is uninstalled or at least you uninstalled its updates.

      Q. Does the '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 ad blocker. And non-root users need to check that they are not using a brand account due to the MicroG bug. If you are, you need to merge the accounts to get the history working (YouTube Settings). The merging process will clean the current history.

      Q. Does PIP mode works?
      A. Yes, from Android 8.0+ 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 log in on Non-Root, I get stuck on the I agree page. What to do?
      A. If you are facing this issue, that means you are using older versions of vanced microG. Please update to the latest version using the latest vanced manager which can be downloaded via our official website. Links can be found in the first post.

      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.
