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?

    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.
    last magisk don't have a repository anymore
    Google for and download/install (Github) Fox Magisk Module Manager (Fox Mmm root app you will use for downloading/installing modules instead of the Modules on-line support that is removed from the new Magisk)
    last magisk don't have a repository anymore
    This was posted on LTT's WAN show stream last night from Vanced. I didn't see this mentioned anywhere, so I figured I'd share.
    🎄🤶X Mas 🎄🤶 to everyone on XDA ❗❗❗
    I have a situation where I need to trim videos that I uploaded as part of a live feed. that is the videos were live when the program was running., they later showed up as recorded status and these are precisely the ones where I want to trim both sides (start & end ) & center where there is no audio . I can do that only on the desktop version of YouTube or on PC. I do not see any option available on an mobile YouTube website or Android app ( Vance or YouTube studio ). so how do I go about getting this done. right now I am stuck with using desktop versions of browsers and forcing YouTube account to open only on browser and it's extremely messy .....the part for editing

    YouTube Vanced


    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
    • 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.


    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 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?


    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.

    GDrive (All versions)
    Alternative Mirrors: AFH (rarely updated) Mediafire (only the latest)
    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.
    New update is out v13.28.54 with following changes:
    - 13.28.53 Full width search bar fix
    - Translation support for more strings
    - HDR brightness bug fixed when using swipe controls
    - Auto repeat can now be linked to autoplay toggle
    - Top-Swipe paddig range added
    - Seek buttons fixed
    - COMPLETE REWORK of all mods for v13.27+ versions (many thx and all credits to @Razerman !!)
