Any device that has been jailbroken in any way will not sync with iTunes 11. So people who have trouble syncing with iTunes should look at this as a possible reason.

There is no jailbreak for the 5th gen itouch, which is what i own.

Also for anyone having my issues or just don't like itunes 11


Use the Control Panel to uninstall iTunes and related software components in the following order and then restart your computer:

Apple Software Update
Apple Mobile Device Support
Apple Application Support

Here itunes 10.7: http://www.filehosti...64Setup_(1).exe

A How to recover you library after you go back to itunes 10.7 from 11

Now you will have to rescue your old iTunes library from your Music>iTunes > Previous Libraries folder and rename it "iTunes Library.itl" (replacing the existing one in the iTunes folder) because a newer version of iTunes irreversibly updates your library file. Note, this will revert your library to version at the time of the upgrade and you will have to update any changes made since.

I found a bug on iTunes11 when you minimize it doesnt turn into the player on the right corner but it does when you minimize it uncheck and recheck it on the toolbar settings.

I found a few more bugs :| It does work when you change the compatibility to Vista but than a message pops up to turn off compataiblity because it may cause it to crash and it did but right now its working. So much for trying to make improvements right? Is there way to make people to switch to Mac by crippling the software for the Windows side?

I am happy to read that many people have had no issues with iTunes 11. However, I am not one of them. The installation went OK and all my music is there and works. The issue comes when syncing my iPhone, iPad to it. At step 8 where it is to update apps, it crashes and I see the code for the crash. I have reinstalled it again. I have rest and restored my iPhone, all to no avail. Crash reports have been sent and I hope to see some news. Other forums on this do not have as many happy users.

Mac MP Pro
OS X 10.8.2

System tray icon still isn't fixed under Windows 7. Shame on Apple for not fixing it; the icon pixels have been messed up since version 10.5 at least. Other then that the new iTunes 11 seems faster than 10.7 was. Interface is a little sleeker looking, but 10.7 looked fine as well.

Is this freezing for anybody else? I get about 2 seconds of use before it freezes on me. It does this on BOTH Windows 8 and OS X on my Mac Pro.

Activity Monitor has the CPU ranging between 0.1 and 0.5%

I tried to install it on Windows and it did not install. It installed fine on the Mac.
