    This is taken from
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=817528

    it will work with 2.0/2.1

    Here are the step.
    1) Use Root Explorer to delete system/app/youtube.apk (backup the file just in case)
    2) Go to Settings >> Applications >> Manage Applications and uninstall com.google.youtube
    3) Install the signed_YouTube.apk from link above (click it through Astro or File Manager)

    PROs:
    >> Portrait and Landscape mode (I always wanted Portrait mode)
    >> In Portrait mode, Info/Related Videos/Comments and Playing Video can be seen on same screen (In other words, a lot of function can be accessed without needing to go to a different screens)
    CONs:
    >> Nothing yet (Too excited to share, so didnt have time to try everything out)
    >> Youtube links, when click in browsers or others apps will not work. Receive force close prompt.

    Note:
    >> I am not taking credits for file
    >> Do not delete data/data and data/dalvik-cache (as suggested from one of the user in the link) It will prompts lots of Force Close on many programs, my guessed was deleting data/data was the caused. Anyway, delete those folders are not needed
    >> You need to enable R/W once in Root Explorer to delete files, Root Explorer required root (can root Universal Androot)
    >> There are other ways to do this, this was the simplest for me
    >> Use Titanium Backup to back up everything, that way you can revert if making mistakes (That's what I did when I deleted data/data and data/dalvik-cache

    I couldn't uninstall it either. I just moved the old file out, put the new one in, renamed if to youtube.apk, clicked it to install and it works fine.
