XBMC custom skin problems

I installed the first new skin I came to in XBMC and it gave me limited functionality, I can't access settings to change it back and it won't let me install any new apps/ channels in program's. Any suggestions of how I can fix this?

Hello, which skin is it that you are using currently? The default skin you want to use is Confluence. I would advice you to google for the skin you installed and find how to change back.

I wish I had seen this earlier and I know you’ve probably figured it out by now, but in case anyone else runs into this problem this is how I fixed it.

  1. Get a terminal program (in windows I used WINscp)
  2. log into your ATV
  3. go to folder: /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/XBMC/userdata
    4 edit “guisettings.xml” file’s “lookandfeel” section, and change the “skin” line to “skin.confluence”
  4. save file and reboot ATV
