Having exactly the same problems have installed The beast numerous time on older firesticks but today got 2 brand new ones from Amazon and they are giving me more or lees the problems noted in here, Also menus missing and background pictures. After restarting The Beast I get the original Kodi skin and menu bar but all beast add ons are in the video add ons like its only done a partial install. Have also done what TECH suggested and still the same problems. So whats happing anybody is it newer firesticks or is the Beast been corrupted. I am now resetting firestick back to factory and starting again for the 3rd time. This time not going to install firestarter incase thats the problem.

Hi having exactly the same issues listed above. After first run of a fresh install kodi 16 and beast 1.6 update 2nd march) using the 1.1 Spartan wizard the stick crashes and reverts back to the original kodi screen (blue bubbles) with lots of stick performance data in the top left hand side of screen. Seems to always happen after the Image resolution add on is updated as Sam pointed out.

if you've got all the addons > just go to system> appearance> skin> get more and click on aeon nox.... install that and see if that works

did that but all the list on bottom bar had gone as well. Seems strange that only today people are reporting this. I have installed The Beast about 6 times this week on m8s sticks they have had a while its funny all of a sudden this is happening. Amazon run out of sticks this week hence these are new batch that the only difference my end as i said done this loads of times with no problems so i just don't get it. ok kodi on now so now the beast will report back shortly.

btw can firestarter be installed after as i always put it on first?

when you first install the beast..... try giving it 30 secs or so before pulling plug just to make sure its fully extracted mate... once you power back on.... leave it.... (think the trouble a few are having is when the skin is trying to build menus and shortcuts etc..... instead of force closing it if it goes wrong... try power exit (if it will let you) and then relaunch and leave it to see if it updates and builds the menus.  to get rid of log ive posted a pinned post under beast menu

you got it when skin is building the screen goes completely black for about 10 secs and that never used to happen, this i think is where the prob lies as i have never seen it go black when it building the skins on first run of the beast. Anyway about to install will BRB

I have literally just reset the stick back to factory settings again, eventually added repo then when installing from zip click on repo and nothing happens now it does not open to let you install wizard hence i don't care what anyone says i am convinced these new batches of sticks amazon have done something as I have just set my old stick back to factory and installed everything with no problem at all. The worrying thing I have 3 new sticks and the 2 I have tried are having the same problems. It has to be the new batch surely???
