kodi skin problems

22
Found 14th Aug 2015
I updated to kodi isengard and none of the skins are working properly other than confluence. I can access all the home page menus but there is no navigation buttons to get back so I have to keep switching it off to change back to confluence. Is anyone else experiencing this and does anyone have a fix for this as its a bit annoying now.

Uninstall and try again? Install an older build 14.2 for example.



Tried completely removing kodi from my htpc in case it was a bug but still the same even with helix and don't really want to go back to any older versions
Well, not all newer versions will be compatible with all skins. I use 14.2 helix with a community build on my fire stick. It runs like a dream

Seriously, if I wanted to use confluence I wouldn't have posted asking advice, if you don't know how to help keep your smart **** answers to yourself.

​I use helix and there's at least 15 skins in u@e official repo that all work fine.
so it seems like a problem with your installation .
what device is it? I would format and re download and that should sort things

It's on my htpc I completely removed it with revo uninstaller in case there was any old files causing it but it's still happening will try again tonight I case I missed anything.
The real question is what skin are you trying to use?

I tried a few Ace, Amber, Mimic, and eminence everything works except no way to navigate back once you go into a menu
Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it the 3 dots ... That's what I use

Been looking into gandelfs builds tonight will try one as they look a lot better than any other skin.
Where do I get gandelf build for isengard?
Can't see it on total installer !

Help
as has been said, not all builds will be compatible with all the skins. im still on helix 14.2. way I see it is i'll only upgrade if I have to or isengard has features I want/need. until then, im using the Aeon Nox skin which ive slightly customised.
Which Gandelf build, as his last one is called slim free TV, he has now left the community, so doesn't maintain the build.

you can also save builds on a memory card. so in case things don't work out, you can downgrade whilst keeping your settings and add ons. you can also transfer your builds to other android devices running kodi so if you buy devices for other people, could just transfer your builds and settings over. this is just on android. not sure about other OS
I use Black glass Nova on isengard without any problems.Its completely customized from home screen wallpaper to additional shortcuts,etc.Works fine on isengard!

what about your saved add ons? I don't have any favs saved so never really thought to check.
