Well, here's my problem and how I fixed it:

I got the ArcX_v2 skin and it wouldnt show, so I took the jpegs and recompressed them (like re encoded them, basically) with Adobe Photoshop. then I reuploaded, and they work perfectly.

Just though yall would like to know about the jpeg prob there.

I think I made some further step in putting this bug in the corner.
People who code EVOX can have a look and probably find it.

I invested a couple of hours and more than 50 (warm) reboots of my X, plus 3 beers and a good cigar.
I just used a "brutal" approach: testing and testing.

Here my findings:

You all already suspected "blackbolt_elite". I picked up also another skin which could make my tests less annoying: "AssPaper2".

1) Each of them work perfectly, if they are alone into the 'skin' Dir.
2) If they are together, only two skins into the Dir, there are two cases:
-a- if 'blackbolt' has been loaded into the Dir first, then there are no problems.
-b- if 'AssPaper2' has been loaded first, then it won't work.
3) If you want to make them work together, even if loaded into the Dir in the wrong order ... cancel the first comment line into skin.ini of 'blackbolt' (= "# Designed from http://www.xbox.com's new layout.")
4) Well, in reality you can just move that comment line at the beginning of the file: it looks like EVOX doesn't like comment lines between "SkinName" and "[Skin_Bb Elite]".

At least this works for me and my dozen of selected skins ("AssPaper2", which I loved and thank, doesn't belong to my official collection).

Hope this helps.



5101, 4920 (1012A700), PAL, Region 04, Focus chip, most likely 1.4 (never

tested D0)
UDE1 (plus 4x s.xtf), EVOX, 1.00.5838.01, Maxtor disk 6Y080L0, FTP via mapped

drive in WXP (the fastest way for me, 10+MB/sec upload to XBOX)

Ok, i am pretty sure I am having the same problem. I just deleted 8 of my 10 skins and added 5 more. Now I can only see the two originals that I left there. After looking though the files I noticed that the two originals have a skin.xml instead of a skin.ini. I am pretty sure they were copied with a skin.ini when I ftp'ed them there.

Any ideas? The names are correct in the ini files.

I had Evo X  3935 using font hack softmod (no-chip mod)(had it done by someone).  Had the same problem of not able to choose Skin in the System Utils in Evo X Dash but able to solve it.

I found out that my Evo.ini & evoxdash.xbe is in E\newdash directory instead of c\. Thus i create the skin folder in E\newdash\skin\ and dump the new skins inside. And it works.

^^^ This should be added as one of the solutions..

wherever your evox.ini and newdash.xbe files are located is where the SKIN directory should be located.

i can confirm that it is in fact a bug.
i had the same problem, and its not only skins that start with the same letter

for example.

my jlh skin worked perfectly fine
the one abot it halo 2 was working fine aswell

well the one below jlh didnt work so i decided to deleted
(didnt work, meaning that the original default evox skin was showing rather than the new skin)

after deleteing adn rebooting, i noticed my JLH skin didnt work.
so it was kinda odd, but i wasnt too attached to the JLH skin anyways. so i deleted that one as well, BUT THEN after rebooting, i found that my HALO 2 skin now wasnt working properly.

i come to conclusion that, there always is one that isnt working, i think it might be the position of the skin!. not sure tho

for example

skin 1
skin 2
skin 3 <--- then that one doesnt work later
skin 4 <-- if that is deleted
skin 5

and so forth. not sure tho. but it's really annoying.
i don tknow wat to try anymore.
if anyone knows how to fix it, it'd be great.

ok guys i'm kinda an amatur here and having mixed probs. probable due to one thing but i'll go over what happened.. the XB was working great (has been for about 10 months) trainers skins everything ( well as much as i used anyways LOL ) couple of day ago i try copyin a trainer to the XB but not matter what i did i couldn't get it to link with my computer (i've done it heaps of time but it just wouldn't work for me this time) so i got sick of it and burn the file to a Rewritable cd. put it in and copyed the file over. it finished but locked up. it also said the trainer was 25 MB big which it isn't so i got annoyed after about ten mins of wait for something and turned it off. waited a little while then turned it back on everytime it went to load Evox it restarted so i went and got the new Evox off r friend and installed it now i can't get trainers or change to new skin only the one it installs with. now what makes it harder. THERE IS NO i mean non nuda zip zilch no Evox.ini or Skin.ini in fact theres no ini file on the system maybe in the game/apps folders but no were else but evox will load play game and have very limited options

Hello, My friend and I modded our xBox's and we both know a lot but we have one problem. He has a 1.6 and I have a 1.3. We both have evo 3995. The problem is that we both can't add stuff to our skins folder. We can add anything anywhere but in the E:/Dashboard/Skins folder we can't add or rename. Can anyone help.

I would like to add something. I have only read the first post so I don't know if someone else has mentioned this.

First look into all the skin folders and make sure then have the skin.ini file (i think its called that).

if you do not see it go to tools\folder options (on the menu bar of that window) then go to view and make sure the dot that says show hidden files and folders is marked, then click save.

no If you see the skin.ini but it is faded out that means it is hidden, and your xbox can't find these hidden files so if you have any skins that have hidden Skin.ini (I downloaded a lot of em) you have to make them unhidden.

to do that, just right click on the skini.ini and click on properties, once in the properties menu just uncheck the hidden option and click ok. And now they should work, or else you have an even bigger problem
