iTunes 7.4.2 update

Apple on Monday released an update to the software for its online media store and music/video management for iPods. iTunes 7.4.2, available via the Software Update preference panel as a 38.5MB download, addresses an issue with creating ringtones using iTunes Plus song purchases and includes bug fixes to improve stability and performance, according Apple's documentation. The iTunes 7.4.1 update, released less than 10 days ago, appeared to address hacks by users that enabled them to create ringtones for free; however, users later found a modified method that allowed them to create custom ringtones without using iTunes ringtone service, which not only charges $0.99, but is also limited to a small set of songs from Apple's entire catalog.

    Did it break custom rings

    I'm hearing reports from that some custom ringtones are not only unfunctional but missing. Anyone accidentally find this out? I'm not updating until I hear otherwise.

    ring tones

    yes and no. Read macrumors for details if you want. I'm not upgrading for a little while though. I don't have any reason to.

    Custom Ringtons

    - iToner (Mac) still works. - iPhoneRingToneMaker (PC) still works. - Other custom Ringtones appear to be removed and can't be recreated even using 'proper' tag change techniques previously described.
