Recently, i wrote a short article about iTunes 9’s new features. I’m happy with those new features but some people, they don’t. So here’s how you can bring your iTunes 8 back.
This short tutorial only works for Mac OS X. Windows-people just have to simply uninstall iTunes 9 and re-install with iTunes 8.
- First, quit iTunes 9. Then go to Applications folder and delete iTunes 9.
- Go to your ~/Music/iTunes folder. In there, you will see a file “iTunes Library”. Delete or rename it.
- Go to “Previous iTunes Libraries”, there is one backup file of old iTunes library. Copy it to ~/Music/iTunes and rename it to “iTunes Library”.
- Go to Apple Website and grab iTunes 8, then execute the installer.
Your iTunes 8 should be back and running by now.
