    I saw a few post with people asking how to downgrade iTunes 10. I made a new thread to simplify it (so people don't have to read pages on how to do it).

    It is easy and YES, YOU CAN RESTORE YOUR LIBRARY :).


    1 - Delete:
    -iTunes.app (located in Applications)
    -com.apple.iTunes.plist (which is located in USER/Library/Preferences)
    -iTunes Library (located in USER/Music/iTunes)

    2 - Download iTunes 9.2.1 and install it.

    3 - Go to USER/Music/iTunes/Previous iTunes Libraries and copy the latest saved Library (check date before updating to iTunes 10) to:
    USER/Music/iTunes and overwrite the iTunes Library (you have to remove the date from the previous Library)

    Enjoy

    Hey,

    Having seen this, I wanted to know something. Will I lose everything I did in iTunes 10 if I do the above?

    I must have done a fair bit of organisation and added several songs since then. I hate iTunes 10, but I'd rather not undo all the work I've done on my library since I got it.

    I believe you'll lose because the previous iTunes libraries are (like the name implies) previous backups.
