I did try now and, yep, I got it working!
How I installed it:
** Remember: Your device must be capable of 720p video decoding and rooted, unless YouTube is not preinstalled as a system app!
• Removed /system/app/YouTube.apk
• If YouTube is still in the app drawer, go into YouTube app info and tap "Remove installed updates", then "Force stop".
• Install my APK!
If that doesn't work for you, try this alternative method:
• Remove YouTube.apk from /system/app (if there is any)
• Uninstall YouTube if it's still on the drawer
• Push my APK into /system/app (be careful with permissions / ownership)
Android 2.2 or newer (Froyo/Gingerbread/Honeycomb/Ice Cream Sandwich/Jelly Bean)Older builds

v4.4.11 Inverted (Dark theme) - Build v4 *BETA* (Thanks to rujelus22 and B-boy)

To enable my extras, just press your phone's menu button (or open the overflow menu top right corner) then tap "Advanced Settings"

HD only available when connected to WiFi networks
WiFi + 3G HD:
HD available on both WiFi and mobile networks
Most higher-end and mid-range phones have the capability to load 720p videos on Wi-Fi, but only 360p/480p on 3G/4G.
With this new mod/tweak, you can watch 720p on 3G and 4G as well.
