YouTube ReVanced FAQ: Everything You Need to Know ?


ReVanced is a Project Made By Some Devs, to Revive the Dead Project Vanced. They are focused to Add all the options that are implemented By Vanced Devs. Currently it's in Dev Stage (Only For Devs) & Not for Public Release, But still we can enjoy the Compiled APKs. Here is the TnT QnA Defined By RBMods Related to ReVanced.

Q: How to Install ?
A: If you are a Normal User. You have to download ReVanced NonRoot APK. It has a changed package name so it doesn't conflict with your preinstalled original Youtube. To Login in ReVanced, MicroG Support is added, Means You have to install a small app called Vanced MicroG which will work as a Login Bridge Between YouTube ReVanced & Google Services. Without MicroG, you can't see your subscribed Channels Content, Notifications, Comments & sometimes even App won't work. You can also build ReVanced with ReVanced Manager.

Q: Facing Crash/ No Internet Connection Error in YouTube ReVanced, How to Fix ?
A: This is Simple caused because of Restrictions on MicroG. MicroG needs to run freely in the background, so ReVanced can sync all the account data like subscribed content, notifications etc. So Please keep MicroG Out of Battery Optimisation, it results in Not killing the App and system will let MicroG run Properly in Background. Another Reason is If you are installing arm64 Varient of RV, your microg should also be of arm64 or Universal Arch. Same thing or Armv7.

Q: Why is It Open Sourced on Github ?
A: Because the Code is open sourced,  it's easy and fast to improve the code, bug fixes and apply new features by contribution of every individual other than the Main Team.

Q: Why is Direct APK not being released By ReVanced Devs ?
A: Distributing Modified YouTube APK is illegal, the reason Vanced Went down. But Distributing Patcher or Patches is not Illegal, so Currently They are making and distributing Patches. Anyone can compile the APK and use personally. So Currently RBMods & Some other People are compiling APKs for Users. But an user can compile himself too, everything is available on revanced github.

Q: It has xyz bugs, bla bla bla ?
A: Currently ReVanced is only and only for Devs, Not for Public. It's in pure beta stage. When things will turn Final, they may release their direct apk or installation via revanced manager. So don't cry about bugs, Use Vanced or Enjoy ReVanced in Beta Development Stage.

  1. I had a qus, why devs making separate package, i mean they could modify the original apk only like in wp and use the original package

    Also I had an suggestion, you can add the option to set the minimize playback size to any size like in pure tuber app and add the exclusive audio playback option of yt music here also, and also increase playback speed more than 2x

    1. All Android Phones have Youtube App preinstalled in the system & You can't overwrite modified version over original. If devs don't change Package Name, then how will YT Revanced will get installed in the phone ?

  2. when opening apk can't refresh the video

  3. We Don't need swipe Controller

  4. Please add option to play only audio stream.

  5. Please add option to play only audio stream.

  6. i personally used youtube vanced and is too good option..
