    Having trouble updating to the new standalone youtube app. Says version is not compatible or something? anyone else had this issue?

    Cleared data in the market, uninstalled the old youtube.apk via titaniumbackup..

    any other ideas?

    i had a similar problem as mine said install was unsuccessful. what i did was use root explorer go to system app delete youtube then clear market cache and force stop, reboot problem and then install the new one... that is what i have to do with some of these new and improved apps if they're a system app like youtube, the new carhome etc...

    you can also use titanium backup to delete it also for those who don't have root explorer

    I used Titanium for both You Tube and Launcher Pro. I had to reboot for both to work.

    I've found the best way to update system apps that fail when downloading is to use Root Explorer.

    Navigate to /system/app click the Mount as R/W button and delete the .apk file for the app you are trying to update. If you are paranoid you can just change the file extension to .old just in case you ever need the original apk back. Once you do that click Mount as R/O button and then reboot. The reboot is important, without it the fix won't work. You can then download the updated app as normal.

    I've done this with the updated LauncherPro, Google Search, and YouTube apps with no problem. The only thing to make sure of is that with LauncherPro you need another launcher before you delete it. I would install ADW and leave it around in case this has to be done again.

    Speaking of that, does anyone else know if we will have to do this in the future when the app updates again? And is there anyway to fix it so we don't have to go through this?

    So in order to get your settings for launcherpro back is to go into the system either thru root explorer or titanium and remove it and then reinstall it from the market?

    Ok so I used titanium to delete launcherpro. It worked and then I rebooted, now I'm stuck at the Ultimate Droid boot up screen. How do I get this to work?

    do you have a backup? power down droid or battery pull. boot into clockwork(hold x and power at the same time, let go of power when M logo appears, but keep holing x.) nandroid>restore>scroll down>install. reflash rom after boot. this time when you delete luancher pro, make sure you have another home replacement like adw(make default launcher!!!) and redo all steps. its bc you deleted the only home luancher you had. lol
