Anybody on A12 having issues with vanced not opening YouTube links, but going straight to the play store to enable the stock YouTube app?? I'm A12 Pixel 5
I am not running A12, but what you describe sounds like you are running the non-root version and its redirecting you to install google YT. Which the root version would appear as, if it were installed.

I've tried searching but couldn't find similar questions. I just wanted some pointers to the right direction. Is there anyway to block or move the ad right below the video? If it can't be blocked, it would be great to at least move it below the recommended videos section. I've been forced to see this add on every single video I watched for several weeks now. Thank you.

I second this, maybe by adding support for the "returnyoutubedislike" plugin?
This is EXACTLY how I would like to see it executed. Just include the plugin coded into the app as a settings panel (like how they included the SponsorBlock plugin) and see that many people will turn the feature on.

Also, the dev of the plugin gets credit and his work will get popular thanks to the MASSIVE exposure of YouTube Vanced.

After searching around not on XDA it seems that there some kind of issue with Android 12 and vanced. The vanced app has zero verified links in the open by default section.

Edit: Just installed the root version and it works as it should except it'll show an update in the play store. The non root version is clearly not working right with Android 12

    Just checked v16.30.34 is available, is that official? As I can't see any update in vanced manager
    No, it's not official as we never released that build to the public. Some users from our beta testing leaked that build months ago and it started appearing in unofficial/pirated channels claiming it is official/made by them which many users do. They steal our apks and release them as their own.

    Please only follow official channels. The only place you will find true and real release are our own.

    Thread cleaned.

    Guys, this thread already long enough to discourage new users. Searching and finding answers from the search results are also difficult. Let us not add to the difficulty. Hope you will cooperate.

    Thank you.
    Guess I should include vanced guides inside the main post. Will edit it by today or by tomorrow.
    Edited the op and included all the important links including installation guides, troubleshooting, bug report guide, logcat guide and FAQ. Users here are requested to check all of them before repeating the same problem on this forum.

    YouTube Vanced

    YouTube 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:


    • 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
    • Casting togglable (can be forced off)
    • Togglable Theme (White/Dark/Black)
    • Picture-in-Picture mode(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.


    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:


    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. 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:


    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.


    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!


    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?

    1. YouTube Vanced exact version number (Do NOT say latest).
    2. Download link used to download Vanced.
    3. Installation method (whether user SAI or Vanced Manager)
