Hello, I am in need of some aid. While I was out and about my "tech savy" girlfriend took it upon herself to install a new skin on my XBMC dash. Unfortunately the one she chose (Rapier) does not display any controls leaving me unable to change the skin back to one that works. I was just curious if there was a means of loading the UnleashX dash to access files and delete this faulty skin? Or how any of you would deal with this?

You can put XBMC into error recovery mode by holding white and Y during startup, and that will give you ftp access.

You can reset XBMC by holding down both thumbsticks as it boots, but that resets all of your settings.

You can boot with a rescue disc (HeXEn or Frosty's Rescue Disc) to get FTP access.

Thank you sir! That might be the most concise, easily applicable answer that I have ever been given. I worked on solving this last night for hours and your answer about resetting allowed me to fix it in less that a minute.
