YouTube ‘Gingerbread’ ported to Eclair

YouTube ‘Gingerbread’ ported to Eclair

If you’re one of the many Android users running Eclair, you might want to know that the latest version of YouTube from Gingerbread has been ported to Eclair!

XDA forum member rolle3k has come up with the goods again, with this port. The XDA member has hacked the newest YouTube app to work with Android OS 2.0/2.1.

rolle3k had to remove two calls and add android.util.base64 which was introduced with Froyo, but the hack should work flawlessly.

To install successfully, you must remove the default YouTube app before installing this hacked app.

For more information and to download the app, head on over to the modification thread.

I've been around XDA since 2007 when I bought the HTC Touch, well things have moved on a lot since then, and I've tried my hand at developing for WM and Android (still learning), but wanted to contribute more by becoming a News Writer for XDA.I write mainly Android articles, and some Windows Mobile. We're always sifting through the masses of threads for front page news, but do let me or the other guys know if you think anything is newsworthy including any breaking news!
