    Per YouTube's ToS, third party apps aren't permitted to play higher than 720p video.
    I know there are some apps that say they have 1080p, but if you click on it the video actually stays in 720p.

    i just tried this, it can't boot anymore, i just can access to the recovery or fastboot.
    Do you know a way to connect it as a storage and reverse back the modification without the phone booting?
    I've done a copy of the build.prop, but it's already modified so i can't copy it directly with TWRP

    Hi there, been reading at least half the thread.... Now here is my problem:
    Got an HTC ONE m7, Android 4.4.3
    Up til two days ago I'd been able to watch YouTube on 1080p on my phone. But I updated the YouTube app about 2 days ago and now it doesn't show the option for 1080p anymore. Highest resolution I can set is 720p now. This really bugs me since I've got an 1080p 469ppi screen on my phone and above all, I'd been able to do it in the past. Can anyone, verify if it's true that YouTube now restricts some phones to set 1080p even tho they technically should be able to use it ?

    And also, did anyone make the same experience like me ?

    Edit: data limiter is off and same story on Wi-Fi

    Thts my point, mine was exactly the same with the OnePlus One but now I can watch 1080p option on LTE, but I think the option disappears for 720 on 3g, not tested in weeks. My youtube has again been updated since. I think they unlocking by region an not by device like previously thought
