XBMC Fatal Error: No suitable skin version found

Post by magnus hydra » Wed Nov 29, 2017 5:52 am

Before we start yes I've read viewtopic.php?f=6&t=65 and viewtopic.php?f=6&t=953 and https://www.xbmc4xbox.org.uk/wiki/Error_Recovery_Mode. I've search alittle and have found to fix.

I soft modded an xbox for the first time in years. This xbox has never been modded before. The motherboard is a 1.6 and I have the Eeprom back up with all the keys and stuff. I put on XBMC on E in dashboard and the xbox would boot into it. I FTP and replacing the XMBC files with XBMC-Emustation-master by JCRocky5. Well now I get the fallowing:

XBMC Fatal Error:
No suitable skin version found
We require at least version 2.1000
IP Address: 192.168.0.6
Starting FTP server...
FTP server running 0n port 21, login: xbox/xbox

I try to FTP to the xbox and the fallowing happened:
No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it. Connection failed.

I've try connecting my router and an old crossover cable I used for land partys back in the day.

I don't know what else to do. I've tried using one of the install disk I have. I've tried loading up splinter cell and they will not boot. After the xbox splash screen it goes right to the XBMC Fatal Error: No suitable skin version found. Don't know why the xbox is refusing the connection. I can Ping it just fine. If I can't FTP to it I am guessing I will have to buy a mod chip. Is there a working program now that can read and write files if the drive is unlocked? like I said I have the HDD key and .bin etc.. I am willing to try anything.

Burn my extras disc to a DVD-R disc with imgburn.

Your Xbox will load it before any dashboard.

The problem is you just overwrite stuff without doing it properly, following the instructions I typed out in the readme.md file on github.

Set your PC to a static IP of 192.168.0.2, subnet 255.255.255.0 and gateways and dns 192.160.0.1

Not see if you can connect to your Xbox.

Hey JCRocky5 nice to see you here. I first burned the extras disc to a DVD-R disc with imgburn. Popped it in the xbox turned it off and turned it back on. Normal xbox Splash screen happens and all I see is a black screen and the xbox lights flashing acting like its trying to read. I hit the eject and nothing happens. Turn the xbox off and back on by hitting the eject button and hit the eject button again and still back screen and light flashed again acting like its trying to read.

Set my pc to a static IP of 192.168.0.2, subnet 255.255.255.0 and gateways and dns 192.160.0. Used a crossover cable to try to connect to the xbox at the XBMC Fatal Error: No suitable skin version found screen and still get the error.

No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.
Connection failed....

I don't understand why it will not connect I had no problem until I messed up when updating...

Will this mod chip work?

The PC is better set to 192.168.0.1 as the Xbox default IP address is 192.168.0.2. I know you said it was 192.168.0.6 but if you haven't changed that it could be the reason for the problem. I'm assuming you're using XBMC as we're here but try UnleashX (installed as an app) and see if that works. The default blue skin shows the IP address but only if a connection is detected so that is a useful confirmation there's no cable issue involved.

BTW it shouldn't matter with modern PCs but don't use a cross-over cable when connecting from PC to Xbox via a router if that's what you're doing. Also, and I've had this problem, whilst I never had any trouble direct connecting my WinXP 32bit SP3 laptop using the same (cross-over) cable direct to the same Xbox (not via a router) when I swapped to a desktop running Win7 Pro 64bit SP1 it refuses to connect when set to Static. I tried swapping from the cross-over to standard patch cable and using CoreFTP rather than FileZilla but no joy.

It is set up in exactly the same way, with identical settings but only when connect via my router, standard patch cable and used with the DHCP option rather than Static does it work. I've looked for information about why this might be happening and whilst I've tried various 'solutions'* none could make the Static set up function as it did with WinXP I've stuck with the set up that works.

* One of those solutions I did not try was use an older version of FileZilla. It only supported WinXP up to version 3.8.0 so the theory is that the Xbox may have issues with the later versions. However I did try using CoreFTP which, apparently does still support WinXP, and had the same trouble: DHCP works, Static doesn't.
