    if you youtube app works now, and you want it to keep working, decline the OTA, but it will bug you constantly about it though.

    doesnt really give anything to write home about either.

    If this is the last OTA that was pushed out, it was to fix some people Lock Screen lag time issue...
    I did this OTA and my youtube was screwed up before and still was after....lol

    No, they havent fixed that yet :/
    So you can go ahead and do the OTA, you wont notice a change at all except it will stop telling you there is one available :)

    You can always just go to the youtube site in the browser. It works just as good and their mobile theme site is very good. So you can get the update (which fixes bugs and such) and still use youtube just fine, just not the app (which isn't that great anyway).
