Frequently Asked Questions

Please make sure to read FAQ before asking questions that have been asked too many times. Thanks.

What is ReVanced?

ReVanced is a modular patcher for apps such as YouTube. This project was born out of Vanced’s discontinuation, and our goal is to continue the legacy of what Vanced left.

How does ReVanced work?

ReVanced does not distribute any proprietary file but instead provides open-source patches. Patches can be created for any Android app. The ReVanced Manager will use the patcher as its core to apply patches of your choice on your desired app. On rooted devices, ReVanced can mount the patched app over the original application. On non-rooted devices, ReVanced will install it under a different package name.

Does ReVanced support non-root devices?

Yes! ReVanced supports non-root and rooted devices.

Does or will ReVanced have feature X?

ReVanced is an open-source project. At first, we are working on implementing all core features from Vanced. Afterward, we will continue to implement your suggestions. Your contributions are also very welcome.

How can I help?

Since we are an open-source community and depend on outside help, you can always check out our GitHub repositories and contribute to us by creating an issue or pull request.

Will ReVanced always stay up to date with YouTube?

Unlike Vanced, our patcher can apply patches to any version of the app. This way, you can use patches on newer or older versions and are independent of us releasing a newer version. (Sometimes patches can break and will need updates. Check the documentation on what versions ReVanced is mainly targeting)

Will ReVanced support Music?

Yes. Patches have been created for YouTube Music and can be created for any other app. The MicroG patch is being worked on to allow ReVanced to work with YouTube Music.

Will ReVanced have NFTs?

We do not intend to create NFTs. It also was never the reason why Vanced shut down and wouldn’t be for us as well.

Does Vanced still work?

Vanced is currently fully functional and can be downloaded from mirrors.

Will MicroG stay up to date?

MicroG and Vanced MicroG are under development by their respective maintainer.

Is ReVanced affiliated with Vanced?

ReVanced is not affiliated with Vanced.

Can you support me?

If you have no idea how to use ReVanced yet, then do not use it yet. ReVanced is currently in development and directed toward developers. If you genuinely have a problem and need help for development purposes, please include the error you get, what caused it and your current environments, such as which files and versions you used in a new thread in #šŸ©¹ćƒ»support on Discord.

What is ReVanced.IO?

A group of enthusiasts maintains ReVaced.IO to provide direct installable APK for YouTube ReVanced and other revanced apps. It is not affiliated with the official revanced team.

Is ReVanced IO shady?

Not at all. We build APKs using reisxd builder or the Official ReVanced Manager. You can even build apps officially using our guides.

Why is ReVanced IO (YT App) being called shady on social sites?

We used to share APKs of the ReVanced Build MMT just because it had ReVanced Extended features. However, we received a lot of criticism from the xda and Reddit community members, even though those builds were completely fine with the Virus Total check. Therefore, we have decided to provide the YT ReVanced app from j-hc’s Github instead.

How do you build a magisk module?

We are not creating a magisk module. Instead, we just share the publicly available Magisk Module (General) by j-hc and Extended by NoName-exe.

How do you build an extended version?

04/03/2023 – We have started building APK using RVX Builder. VirusTotal reports of our build will be found on the Changelog page.

Why ReVanced Crashing on my device?

Just disable battery optimisation for Vanced/Revanced MicroG.

Why ReVanced .io’s 18.03.32 flagged as malware by VirusTotal?

Geek Tech first identified this, and then @Retrial posted it on the XDA forums.

Well, if you guys had gone deep into that report, you would have understood the real thing.

You can now check by going through the “Relations” tab and find this http://www.google.com/gen_204 under (Contacted URLs). When you click on the URL, it shows like this. If you consider Google as malware, then our file is also malware.

To know more about http://www.google.com/gen_204, please go here https://superuser.com/questions/1277759/what-is-gen-204.

We understand that false positive alerts can cause concern, but we want to assure our visitors that all our files that were uploaded in app.revanced.io are built using ReVanced Manager, reisxd builder and RVX Builder.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support.

How to donate Official ReVanced Team?

Now, Official ReVanced Team is accepting donations from users. You can go to this Donation page to make a payment.

Did you build MicroG?

No. We have shared inotia00’s MicroG build. He is the developer of ReVanced Extended Patches.

How can I donate to the ReVanced.IO team?
