    iTunes
    I REALLY dislike iTunes 11 and wish to revert to the previous version.

    Can Time Machine help? If so , how?

    Thanks Mitcherooney

    Download the 10.7 iTunes DMG file and then download Pacifist to allow you to look inside the iTunes DMG file. You will find the installer PKG file there. Run that to overwrite your iTunes 11 installation.

    Now go back to Time Machine and restore your iTunes library from before your iTunes 11 installation to get back the older version that will work with 10.7.

    Obviously, make sure your backup is up to date before you try any of this..

    Hi Ashwin

    Thanks for your reply, but I'm still a bit confused. Cobwebs in the brain beginning to outnumber the grey cells.....

    I've used Pacifist to do what you suggest and I get to this point and I'm not clear as to what I run nor how I do it.

    Can you lead me by the hand, please?

    Thanks Austen

    Hi again.

    After a bit of trial and error, I managed to get back to the previous (10.7) iTunes version.

    Many thanks for your help. I couldn't have done it without your guidance.

    I wouldn't care if I had to recreate my entire library. Yes, that's how unhappy I am with the new iTunes. Everyone that worked on that new iTunes video talking about how great the new iTunes is, should be caned.

    I too have just reinstalled the previous version. Thanks for your advice.
