    Hi All,

    I'm running 4.2.1; jailbroken with redsnOw

    I installed Yourtube HD using the "wildcat" fix as outlined here.

    Fix the gsc.wildcat error with FullForce for iPad in Cydia | GumballTech

    After the install, Cydia tells me to reboot. At this point, the iPad always gets stuck at the apple logo.
    I override it with a teathered reboot with redsnOw.

    When I open the Youtube app, the "downloaded files" button appears on the bottom right corner.

    Problem is, when selecting any youtube video, the app immediately crashes.

    I've read in a few other forums to do a restore, rejailbreak and resync and, essentially start over.
    Needless to say, that's a timing consuming process.
    Over the past 4 days, I've done 4 complete restores, re-jailbreaks and resyncs.....nothing gets youtube working with Yourtube HD installed.

    I've tried MXtube and atube. Maybe I'm not very bright....but I can't really figure out how they work. The usability is no where near as easy as Yourtube.

    My question: should I just abandon the concept of being able to download and save videos?
    The time investment is starting to become rediculous.

    Any input/comments are greatly appreciated.

    :confused:

    Well, you are basically forcing an app which is not 4.2.1 compatible to run on 4.2.1, so you shouldnt expect it to work perfectly..., and i wouldnt see a restore, re-jailbreak solving anything... JB apps which hook into stock Apple apps are most likely to break between major os versions because Apple often updates the stock apps too...

    I agree that MXTube isnt perfect, but it does work on 4.2.1, so i would suggest either spending the time learning how it works to see if you can live with it, or wait for a working 4.2.1 YourTube.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks for the logical approach!
    Sometimes I get too focused on "making something work", instead of looking at the bigger picture.
    One more restore and I'm done! At least, for now. ;)
