The Beast will absolutely NOT open up!!! Reverts back to Kodi, same issue on multiple devices! Please help!

2 posts in this topic

Hi there,  

I'm having a serious issue here and I've worked on this for 3 days with no good results and now my frustration level is sky high. Lol.      I've done this a few times so I'm not exactly a rookie.  Sorry it's so long winded but I wanted to be as descriptive as possible.  Here's my story:

     I have a fire tv stick and was trying to sideload kodi/the beast on it. My existing kodi/beast was acting up and nothing was wanting to play, so I decided to do a clean wipe of kodi and reset my device back to factory defaults.  Brought it all back up, installed the arm kodi 17.3 x32 via es explorer.  (x64 won't install on my firetv stick)  Registered on the beast site, installed the beast USA, downloaded-extracted, ok'd the messages, waited a few minutes, unplugged the power cord for 10 seconds, plugged it back in, waited at the main menu for a few minutes, then open Kodi, I see the beast usa splash screen (trump on a tank) for about 5 seconds and then it inmediately reverts back to the standard Kodi skin.  I have tried backing out, forcing the app closed and then powering down and back on and reopening and it still does the same thing.  I tried all working versions of the beast with Kodi 17.3 x32 and had the same result.  I then wiped Kodi and installed 17.2 x32.  I tried it with ALL working versions of the beast with the same result. Then I backed off to Kodi 17.1 x32. I was able to get the latest beast build to open with 17.1 but it wasn't updating at all.  I left it alone for a few hours and it wouldn't load or populate any app/addon that I tried to open. I seen some reports online where chris b and other folks were saying the new beast build was being really slow this week so i'm attributing it to that... but the others should load and run just fine.    

     At this point I've reset my firetv stick back to factory defaults 3 times and somewhere along the way I stopped using es file explorer and started using the amazon downloader. It's much quicker.  I began to wonder if the stick was just dead. Everything else works absolutely fine on it, so I was perplexed.  I go to best buy after work yesterday and buy a firetv box. Get home, install kodi 17.3 x64.  It goes on with ease. I install the beast usa. No problem.  Did the power off and brought it all back up, same problem.  I see trump and then right back to the original Kodi skin.  I cleared the data and cache and tried installing the latest beast and the oldest beast as well with kodi 17.1 x64 and the newest would open but was still not updating.  I uninstalled 17.3 x64 and put 17.3 x32 on and had the same result.  The other two versions of the beast would only flash the trump screen and dump me back into Kodi.  

     So then I uninstalled Kodi 17.3 from my fire box, reinstalled 17.1 x32, tried adding the source from http://thebeast1.com/repo and registering from that site as well.  Go in and install the latest beast (still not updating) and the beast usa (still flashes trump and goes back to Kodi).  

     Then I thought it might be the skin, so I went into kodi >settings>interface settings and got an error message that said "unable to load skin-skin is missing some files".  Then I tried install Aon Nox but it's not even listed as an option.  

     I've tried the 3 latest versions of Kodi with all 4 current working versions of the beast with the firetv stick.  And with my firetv box I've tried 3 versions of Kodi (17.3 x64, 17.3 x32 and 17.1 x32) with 3 versions of the beast (old,new,usa). I've tried using http//thebeast1.com/repo and http://thebeast2.com/repo when adding the sources.  I've tried adding the aon nox skin but it's not there.  

     I'm about to pull my hair out.  I could do this process in my sleep, so I feel certain I'm not missing a step. The odds of me missing a step (the same step) basically 40 times in a row over the course of 3 days are astronomically high.  Lol  Stranger things have happened though...  

Why is this happening?  What am I missing?  What should I try next?   Why is the same thing happening on BOTH devices? 

Any help is appreciated - thanks in advance!

I just wanted to reply with a bit of an update.  

 

I did a fresh install of 17.1 x32 on the firetv box and then went into the skins and downloaded/installed Aeon Nox and THEN installed the beast (beast usa from http://thebeast2.com/repo) and it opened exactly like it should BUT it's not updating.  I've tried it twice now and get the same result both times.  As soon as the opening beast screen (trump) goes away and it actually opens to the beast home screen there is a quick pop up at the top that says 'getting skin settings 5%' but it quickly goes away.  The menus are all built out like they should be, the addons are listed under their corresponding category but none of the repos are mapped. ie. the apps (exodus for example) will open, but there are no submenus or anything at all inside them.  I've left it alone for 20 minutes and nothing is updating.   

 

If it sounds like I only want to use the beast US, it's because in my experience, it runs more smoothly.  So it's kind of my default preferred build but at this point any working/updating beast buikd will suit me just fine.   Another interesting note is that once I've manually installed Aeon Nox before installing the beast, installed the nonupdating beast and then went back into the skin settings- Aeon Nox is not listed.   

 

...back to the drawing board.  

More to come
