Woohoo! Fix for error -42408

Quote:
This is caused by the following frameworks in /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/
AirTrafficHost.framework
CoreFP.framework
DeviceLink.framework
iTunesAccess.framework
MobileDevice.framework

You will need to replace them with an older version from your Time Machine or any other backup.

Next time, you may wish to try the EASIEST solution - don't download stuff you're not so sure you're gonna like. iTunes 11 is just one of them.

I'm happy now. iTunes 11 really sucked out every hair of my balls.
Could you possibly take us through what you did to 'completely restore your system' please, step by step. I have Time Machine, and I'm running Mountain Lion, but whenever I try to revert to the iTunes I had before the upgrade I just get an error message telling me OS X 'needs' iTunes, and it won't let me revert.

Totally agree with you... its pretty ugly... the white bg sucks and for some reason its using helvetica condensed for me (looks too squashed with no kerning).... it looks bloody awful.

If someone has a fix to change the font that would be brilliant

For the most part, iTunes is usually iTunes. I upgrade because it becomes it becomes a necessity at one point or another. I didn't think they'd screw up the search field up top so much that you can't even narrow down results in the normal 'song view,' the way it's been done for the past iTunes versions. This is the first update in a while where they didn't just add superfluous stuff that was kinda annoying like ping, but straight-up scrambled parts of a previously functional navigation UI.

edit: also bogoss figured out the fix for the -42408 error for downgrading here: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthre...9#post16400819. I followed the steps out and it works fine.

No need to restore your entire system. Just follow the steps here - https://discussions.apple.com/message/20439826#20439826

Downgrade Tutorial

https://discussions.apple.com/message/20441475#20441475

Here you can find an excellent downgrade tutorial. The good thing was they suggest Pacifist to avoid those errors. In fact, I downgraded painlessly: followed the tutorial, and then copied the iTunes folder from the backup. I'm back to iTunes 10.

I followed the instructions above and worked perfectly. It may look complicated to a newbie, so Im gonna translate:

1)Delete iTunes 11

2)From a Time Machine Backup, restore the following:

-iTunes folder
-PrivateFrameworks folder
-iTunes application

Its not really complicated. However, when restoring the iTunes app, do it to a diferent place other then where iTunes 11 was....for example, restore it to your desktop. After you check everyting is fine, move it to the applications folder.

It basically looks like an updated version of iTunes 10.

There isn't really a way to downgrade iTunes without breaking stuff, so your better sticking with iTunes 11 and just making it work like before (just with all the cool new features slotted into the old look).
at least it looks like iTunes 10 now YAY

Not liking it would have been sugar coating it... I ****ing hate it! It broke my Apple TV, and I can't find where I can reset my Apple TV using iTunes, since the interface changed, and all the online tutorials are using the old interface!

Where can I get the 10.7 installer?
The "Old-Apps" Homepage only offers Versions for Windows, but I am on OS X.

Thanks for help.

Dude, don't get self righteous and preachy.

Most every v of itunes has been pretty darn good with minor revisions being the norm.

No one anticipated 11 being such a spectacular piece of crap. There have been quick fixes in the past for minor issues (returning color to buttons, a black background), but never have i experienced a version of itunes which I simply wanted to flush down the toilet.

There's a first for everything I suppose.

edit: Apple should release a second version of itunes 11 which is basically itunes 10. Give us a choice without going through some extremely involved and dangerous hack.

I've defended apple just about every opportunity I get. But you can't defend stupid. 11 is stupid.

2 - uninstall itunes 11
3 - go to http://www.oldapps.com/itunes.php and download the 10.7 version (please, note that the library are compatible with higher versions. a 10.7 library will not work on a 10.6 itunes version.)
4 - install 10.7 version and change the content of the itunes library with your backup if necessary.

enjoy!
Just done this myself, should have looked here in the first place.

I keep loosing connection with my Apple TV 2, keeps asking me to enable Home Sharing in iTunes, was ok till I updated to 11.01.

Also apps don't sync automatically, have to Transfer Purchases.

My Lion iMac still has iTunes 10.7 with iTunes Match

I tried out iTunes 11 on my Snow Leopard macbook.
I just don't get it and want to go back.

Do I just erase 11 on the macbook then go to the site with the old version>reinstall 10.7> sign in to Match and let the magic happen?

I need your help.
I am still on 10.7 and I love the old Miniplayer.
I use iTunes 11 on my Windows machine and it's ok, but on my Mac I want to use 10.7.

But I have one problem:
I can download the english version of iTunes 10.7 from Apples official homepage, but when I choose the german version I am redirect to iTunes 11.

Does anyone know, where I can get the german iTunes 10.7 version for Mac?

Thanks

iTunes was giving my Mac kernel panics every 5 minutes. I deleted the thing and my mac has been working perfectly for a few hours.

I couldn't even listen to my music because it sounded like an old tape that was scratched.

Hope Clementine does the trick cause i am not using iTunes-poop 11.

followed all steps - itunes still doesn't open

Hi
I found this thread while searching for the answer to my problem - even though I do not have a Mac but PC, I've joined this forum hoping that someone will be able to help.

I have followed all the steps to downgrade iTunes 11 (which I can't stand!) to 10.7, including updating the library.

all went well, except that...itunes does not open. Instead, I get a weird error message: "to change volume, move the slider at the top of itunes window", which comes up twice when I click to close it.

what am I missing here?

I have Windows 7 (32 bits)

please help!
Crystal
