I was very curious about your fix for that problem so I grabbed your latest version from github.
Sorry to report it didn´t work for me, xbmc still freezes at startup:

Your lockup is happening long after the startup.XML has been processed so I don't think it is related. You may want to disable all of the add ons that returning errors at the end of the log.

I cleaned my addon directory and got rid of all the repository´s but xbmc keeps freezing at startup.
It´s the same with roni´s transparency skin, whenever weatherplus and nextaired are activated XBMC freezes.
I think I just have to wait till #11528 gets fixed.

Code:
Look for:

<onfocus>XBMC.RunScript(script.tv.show.next.aired,silent=true&amp;alarm=99)</onfocus>
<onfocus>Notification(Startup,TV Guide Updated)</onfocus>

Change to:

<!-- <onfocus>XBMC.RunScript(script.tv.show.next.aired,silent=true&amp;alarm=99)</onfocus>
<onfocus>Notification(Startup,TV Guide Updated)</onfocus> -->

Thanks stoli! Will try tonight with XBMC nightly from July 20 (for Windows) and your latest version from git.

Regards,

Bart

Noob;

I'm using Neon on atv2 and it's also locking up.

Only problem is it doesn't give me a chance to change the skin as it locks up before I can get into settings .

So I'm basically stuck with a atv2 that freezes after about 10secs on starting xbmc .

Help

Just delete the skin.neon directory.

just remove the folder /private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/XBMC/addons/skin.neon

You can either ssh in and do it or use the likes of WinSCP (my preference) which provides a simple gui interface.
