Skin not loading

11 posts in this topic

hutchy2474    0

Been using kodi/xbmc around 4 years. Not an expert but not a novice. Been using the beast from way back. Now using on firestick, everything been fine until a few weeks ago. I'm on krypton 17.0 and as I say until a few weeks ago all was good. 

The first thing that happened was a message appeared at the top saying building skin shortcuts, and it going up to 100%. Just like when you open up a build for the first time. Then once this was complete , the build was on but not in the bright green colours , just plain grey, and although all the original graphics were there , and all add ons worked it was just a little strange. 1 of the background graphics on it was the aeon nox with the astronaut, I'll try add a picture to this. I can't remember seeing this on the build before it had a funny turn. I've re installed a few times since but the same thing happens. 

This happens on all my devices, android box and windows laptop. 

Now, when I go to install on firestick, from sign up for beast to letting it load ,let it  extract , and unplug , it comes on with thr beast krypton superman style logo in bright green , then goes to the estruary skin and nothing loaded in. I've ticked to allow from unknown sources but really do not have a clue as to why it won't load when it has done before. I've tried other builds wookie pulse just to eliminate the problem.  Hope someone can help .

First off , Please revert back to Kodi 16.1 as 17 is still very buggy and only works good on some 

platforms but still alot of addons don't work with it as of yet . Make sure you turn off auto update 

tho or you will end up right back where you started . It is posted everywhere to get rid of Kodi 17

and stay with Kodi 16.1 for now till further notice

I've started fresh, put Jarvis 16.1 back on to the firestick signed up with the beast, done everything as I've done countless times before. It's downloaded and extracted 100% , I've pulled the plug, let it boot back up and still the same except it's the confluence skin. The addons are working on jarvis where as with krypton nothing loaded. It's just a problem with the skin. 

Any ideas

Hi There,

This is a common problem but don't worry you have installed the beast it just hasn't built the skin properly and is easy rectified. All you need to do is go to system> appearance>skin > get more and click on aeon nox....this will do it. This seems to be a main problem for some reason and then when you click ok it will rebuild the menu for you and thats it buddy.

It seems to me this problem is with Krypton (especially since it happened on all your devices, and not on Wookie etc) I've been on kodi 17 with my shield for over a month with no issues, now on 17.1. However I am familiar with the issue you describe, it happened to me once with the beast on 16.1. 

Let me ask you this, what server are you registering on, US or U.K.? (Beast1.com/repo or beast2.com/repo)

I repliedbelow but also want to add that the astronaut you mentioned is the plain aeon nox skin. Waiting to hear back from you below ūüėä

      STEP BY STEP TO CONFIGURE YOUR FIRE STICK FROM SCRATCH
      UPDATED 07/02/2017 This is a step by step guide with video links to help you all install your builds from scratch onto your Fire Stick ( A FRESH CLEAN START ), Even though this is written for The Fire Stick the principle and videos can also be referred to for installing on other devices. We have lots and lots of questions on here and I have to admit I keep typing the same instructions over and over again hence this post I am now doing so people can use it to link too in the relevant threads asking for help.
      We are literally starting for scratch so here we go.
      FIRSTLY most of the problems in the U.K. are down to ISP Blocking hence the very, very first thing to check is your ISP is not blocking you in any way, now you say well it did work last week but please remember ISP’s update numerous times a day so what may have worked last week may not work this week so you need to disable some settings to prevent this from happening. To stop your ISP blocking software please CLICK HERE This post tells you how to adjust your settings on Various ISP’s and trust me it resolves at least 60% of problems.
      Once you have checked your ISP settings you are ready to start and I must point out if you have not checked your ISP settings and you live in the U.K. then there is no point in carrying on so it's totally up to you 
      1. Start your Fire Stick and let it load up the home screen, you then need to go into Settings then click right to System and click on this and scroll down to you come to Reset To Factory Defaults and click on this to basically reset your stick for a fresh clean start.
      2. Once you have done that you are ready to start loading onto your Fire Stick, so set up your WiFi connection and Log Into Your Amazon Account then before you proceed any further you now need to go to Settings then right again to System and scroll down to Developer Options. Click on that and Turn On Apps From Unknown Sources.3. You
      are now ready for your first item to install which is ES File Explorer. You need to install this onto your stick by going here ( Click On The Link Below ) it says for UK but its for any Amazon Account all over the Globe OK. How to install ES File Explorer on the Amazon Fire Stick or Fire TV 4. Right once you got ES File Explorer you need Kodi, DO NOT install Kodi 17 as it's in beta stages and builds have not been updated for 17 but install 16.1 so it's KODI 16.1 Jarvis. I am hearing a lot of reports recently about ES not playing. Right OK I have had 100% success with this method and still using it today so click LINK CLICK HERE and work from ITEM 3 on the page you are taken to. and take a look and work through this guide as this is the way I do all my sticks etc. REMEMBER Amazon has now blocked APK downloads, so just download the zip file of Kodi 16.1 as this is what I do now as the zip file will atomically unzip when asked to install. 5. Register yourself to allow the use of The Beast Wizard if your not already registered by logging onto http://thebeast2.com/signup/register.php to register. (Click link in Item 6 for help to do this)
      PLEASE NOTE WHEN SETTING UP YOUR CREDENTIALS PASSWORDS MUST ONLY CONTAIN LETTERS AND NUMBERS AND NO CHARACTERS
      6. Once you done that run Kodi and as its a first run its also a Clean Install hence when you first run Kodi go to this next step and get The Beast Wizard by following very carefully this link http://thebeast1.com/signup/register.php and watch the video in full above the registration boxes.
      Don't forget this will install The Beast Wizard Only Now ok. When you highlight the Beast Wizard for the first time chick the far right button on your remote one with 3 lines on it and configure the Beast Wizard by putting in you Wizard Credentials that you did in item 5 email and password (the credentials you set up in Item 5), Not the Credentials you use to log into this forum unless you use the same credentials obviously . Once you done that Run it and choose The Build You Wish To Install and away you go. 
      If your stuck on inputting your Credentials into the Beast Wizard go back to item 6 and follow carefully 
      7. DON'T FORGET ONCE YOU INSTALLED THE BEAST AND IT SAYS CLICK TO RESTART DO NOT CLICK BUT PULL THE POWER FROM YOUR STICK COUNT TO 10 THEN REPOWER
      Now thats it it should all work for you if you follow these steps and videos without cutting corners or skipping any of the above, and as I have already said this is written for The Fire Stick but the principle is the same for most devices just follow the steps above and you should be up and running in no time at all.
      Good Luck and keep us posted in the relevant threads ( Not On Personal Message Please  )if you run into problems.
      NOW WE GOT KODI 17 and there seem to be big problems with it you also need to disable the automatic update function so see below for details and click on the title in the box.

      A Big HELLO to all our members on this marvelious World Wide Forum,
       
      We are all here for help and support and obviously news about our hobby and interests and the Staff and Members are all here to share our expertise and knowledge when our members have problems and we all try to help and get you all up and running as quickly as possible. 
       
      The main problem with this is some of our members are not helping themselves. Yes, we understand if you got a problem you would like speedy results and answers but time after time we see the same questions like ‚ÄúHelp pin wont work‚ÄĚ or ‚ÄúSpartan wizard keeps asking me to log on‚ÄĚ etc.
      In reply to questions like that we ask ‚Äúwhat are you trying to install in on?‚ÄĚ or ‚Äúwhen do you get this error?‚ÄĚ etc. Now you can obviously see that this is wasting time on your behalf and you are still stuck and having to reply with the relevant information, hence talking up more time to get you up and running when we want to get you running as soon as possible as thats what the forum is about.
       
      So members please think when posting problems to be solved and take a quick look through this checklist below as the more information you can give us the quicker we can try to resolve your problems and get you up and running.
       
      The very, very first thing to check is your ISP is not blocking you in any way, now you say well it did work last week but please remember ISP’s update numerous times a day so what may have worked last week may not work this week so you need to disable some settings to prevent this from happening. To stop your ISP blocking software please CLICK HERE  This post tells you how to adjust your settings on Various ISP’s and trust me it resolves at least 60% of problems. What are you trying to install? (Kodi, The Beast, Spartan Wizard etc ) What are you trying to install onto?  ( Device you are trying to update/get working ) Method of installing? ES File Explorer or File Manager etc. Let us know how far you are getting until you run into problems. The problem you are having and any error messages. Always try and give us a brief description and order of what you are doing until you get to the point where you are having your problem. Please do not post multiple posts on the same issue as it will get deleted and a warning will be issued NO troubleshooting in pm or by mail as it does not benefit others with the same issue   
      So a typical question ‚ÄúHelp I¬†can't¬†install the Beast¬†wizard !‚ÄĚ ( does not tell us a lot does it )¬†
       
      If it looks something like "Help I am trying to install The Beast wizard from The Beast Site on my Fire Stick using File Manager and I keep getting an error saying the link cannot be resolved".

      This all-in-one adapter is the easiest way to add
      Ethernet to the Amazon Fire TV Stick
       

      A little-known feature of the 2nd-generation Amazon Fire TV Stick, which Amazon has never advertised, is that it supports USB OTG by default. This allows you to connect much more than a power cord to the device’s micro USB port, like wired keyboards, mice, hubs, and external storage, but by far the most common use is to connect an Ethernet adapter in order to get a fast and stable internet connection to the Fire TV Stick. If all you want to do is connect the Fire TV Stick to Ethernet, this all-in-one Ethernet adapter by UGREEN is by far the easiest way to go. 

      Even though the UGREEN Ethernet Adapter is labeled as an accessory for the Chromecast, I was tipped off that it works for the Fire TV Stick so I picked one up to see for my self. Sure enough, it works perfectly with the 2nd-gen Fire TV Stick right out of the box without any configuration necessary. Just plug the micro USB end of the adapter into the Fire TV Stick, plug the full-sized USB end into the stock power adapter (or a USB port on your TV), connect an Ethernet cable, and the Fire TV Stick will automatically see and use the wired connection. It couldn’t be easier. The UGREEN Ethernet Adapter does also work with the 1st-gen Fire TV Stick, but the device will need to be rooted and configured to enable OTG.
      The Fire TV Stick fully recognizes the Ethernet adapter and displays it as a wired network connection within the device’s network settings. By default, the Fire TV Stick automatically assigns itself an IP address via DHCP, so you likely won’t need to configure any settings, but the ability to manually configure the connection is available if it’s necessary for your particular network. Disconnecting the Ethernet cable will automatically switch the Fire TV Stick to WiFi, which is the same way the Fire TV box handles the two types of network connections, so you can easily switch between wired and wireless internet if necessary.
      If you want the option to connect addition USB peripherals, you can, of course, use a separate OTG Cable, Ethernet Adapter, and USB hub instead, but if all you want is an Ethernet connection for your Fire TV Stick, it’s a much cleaner and easier setup to go with the UGREEN Ethernet Adapter. It’s currently available from Amazon.
      Thank You  And Have A Great Day.

      EPIX app arrives on the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick
       
      The Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick lineup of streaming apps from cable networks is fairly robust these days. So much so that there aren’t too many major networks missing from the platform, so new network apps are rare these days. EPIX has been expected on the platform, after hinting at an upcoming app, and now they’ve finally arrived with an all new Fire TV app. Like so many cable network apps, the new EPIX app does require activation through a TV provider before you can view any of its content, but once activated, the app provides access to a very robust library of movies. 

      EPIX does have a small selection of original shows, but the star of the show is definitely their library of thousands of movies which are all available on demand through the new app. The home screen of the app looks almost identical to the Fire TV’s updated interface. The upper half of the screen is taken up by information and an image of the highlighted content, while the bottom half is full of stacked rows of content in various categories.

      There are numerous movie groups, like ‚ÄúMost Watched‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúNew On EPIX,‚ÄĚ to help you find something to watch. You‚Äôll also find curated collections, like ‚ÄúClassic 80s Movies,‚ÄĚ and multi-movie series, like Bond and Indiana Jones, on the home screen.

      Selecting a movie or TV show lets you play the content if the app is activated, watch a trailer, or add it to a watch list. Selecting the ‚ÄúView More‚ÄĚ option just gives you a list of the cast and crew in the movie or episode.

      If you just want to browse the entire catalogue of movies, you can jump into the ‚ÄúSee All (A-Z)‚ÄĚ area of the app where you‚Äôll find a seemingly never-ending wall of movies and shows to scroll through.

      The ‚ÄúLive‚ÄĚ section of the app lists what‚Äôs currently airing on the four EPIX channels: EPIX, EPIX2, EPIX Hits, and EPIX Drive-in. From there you can jump directly to the currently airing movie‚Äôs on demand listing to start watching the movie from the beginning.

      There’s a very basic search function in the app that could certainly be improved with additional search options. It does not appear as though EPIX has integrated their catalogue with the Fire TV’s universal search yet, so you won’t be able to use Alexa or the main Fire TV interface to find content within the EPIX app.

      In the ‚ÄúSettings‚ÄĚ area of the app is oddly where you‚Äôll find your watch queue and watch history. While browsing around the app, you can select to add any movie or series episode to your watch queue, where it‚Äôll be saved for easy access. The settings area also has the usual closed captioning and log out options. The parental controls section just informs you to manage settings on the epix.com website.
