    Yes if your using apps2sd the path will be different of course. You could also use root explorer to delete it as well.

    i have apps2sd, i deleted the youtube sdk through root manager, but when i go t install the new one through astro, i get application not intsalled, please help

  5. Thats what happened to me too at first. From home screen, Menu-->Setting-->Applications-->Manage Applications. click on com.google.android.youtube and uninstall. then try installing the new signed_youtube.apk file with astro again.

    Ok so excuse the ignorance but what is better about the 2.2 youtube app?

    is it worth changing over to? What are the benefits?

    Sounds pretty cool though, Hacking Froyo apps for eclair and all. :D

    Just a nicer more clean interface. That's only difference I have noticed so far.

    Yeah its definitely much cleaner, the widget as well. Additionally you can browse by category, upload to youtube, and view your channel. I would say the new version is infinitely better than the old one. Definitely worth the 5 mins to upgrade.

    One thing that does suck is since the current ROMs (velocity and raptor) both include the old version you'll have to re-do the uninstall/install whenever you do a factory reset to flash a different rom.

    When I try to login to my account I get a bunch of random characters for the letters. It used to happen on my old youtube app which is why I deleted it. I am running velocity .3 anyone having similar issues? It won't connect after i login to my account it gives me a network error, when I log out it works fine. To Install it I just installed through tattachapkinstaller after uninstalling old youtube app, which worked fine to install.

    It DOES work,


    It force closes after about 5 or so uses.

    The differences is mainly that it has a new UI, you can see comment's, related videos, and info while still watching the video (along with vertical support), and everything is horizontal switched instead of vertical options.

    Dont know what I am doing different but it has always worked flawlessly for me. I love it.
    I use it all the time. I have since this thread came out.

    Works flawlessly, thanks for the port!:cool:

    I was having a bit of issues getting it to install but I managed to figure it out by doing this:

    Use Root Explorer, navigate to /system/app, click "mount r/w", delete the YouTube.apk file then click "mount r/o" then close Root Explorer.
    Go into your phone's Settings - Applications - Manage Applications and start scrolling down untill you find "com.google.android.youtube" and uninstall that.
    Finally just use your file manager of choice and install "signed_YouTube.apk"
    It should be installed successfully.:D

    Hi Everyone
    I'm new and have just bought a Scroll 7" for Xmas for my daughter (well for me really but only after 7pm when she is in bed!).
    I originally got a POV Mobbi 7" but it was pants so sent it back.
    I cannot get youtube to work. All I ever get is "Cannot display video". Interestingly the Mobbii had the same problem. The Mobbi didnt have the official youtube app though. I had to install non app market youtube alternatives on that.
    My internet isn't fabulous (2.5MB) and I thought it could be down to that?
    I've spoken to Storage Options and they've never seen the issue and can't reproduce it.
    I've read bits to suggest I should clear the youtube cache from within the application settings menu. However, youtube is not listed in that menu. Only the 3rd party apps i've installed are there.
    Please help me! I am getting close to throwing in the river!

    By the way, I'm tempted to install this youtube version but am worried about having to delete the previous version. I'm not that techie and am worried I'll end upo voiding my warranty. If it goes pear shaped, will a factory reset get me out of trouble?

    No it won't But you should make a back up before you do anything. Also download the .apk file of the original You tube app. I am sure if you ask around someone has it.
    I recommend rooting your phone with z4root if you have not then downloading Rom Manager and flashing amonra recovery 1.2.5 after that make a backup of your phone. Now you can feel confident trying new things because you have everything all saved and you can keep trying.

    However if your runnin stock right now I believe your going to have to do a few things in order to even be able to uninstall you tube.. I believe that is correct. If somebody else knows better please correct me.
