Hi guys,

While playing around with my ATV2 I decided to try another skin as s102 has an update that I wasn't too keen on. However since the new skin I cannot get to the settings as the skin is too heavy & restarts the device when I start trying to navigate to settings.

Can someone advise how I can disable or remove the installed skin so I can use the device as its useless currently? Recently installed skin is called Kodi Black Glass Nova

If you know how to SFTP and SSH into the Apple you can navigate to the Kodi folder then to userdata and edit the guisettings.xml

Exit Kodi first

This should work but not 100% guaranteed, if it doesn't then use option 2

You can do a replace all skin.blackglassnova with skin.confluence

Save the file then you will probably have to run this command in SSH

chown -R mobile.mobile /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/Kodi

Then start Kodi


Or you can SFTP and delete the guisettings.xml then you will probably have to run this command in SSH

chown -R mobile.mobile /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/Kodi

This method will default all your gui settings

Thanks I ended up using cyberduck & deleting the guisettings.xml file this sorted my issue and all is good. As SSH commands kept staring unable to find file etc.
