Hello everyone,

I need some help please!

I wanted to try and get the justin.tv plugin working so needed to update the build....which I have not done before.

I was not getting much joy and generally failing to update it.

My solution was to try and rename the existing folders to screensavers1, skin1 etc etc, ftp the latest build, check it worked ok then delete the old folders i renamed.

Everything seemed to be going to plan, but when i rebooted to check it was ok....the xbox failed to reboot (just shows a blank screen) and all I get is a red LED.

I can no longer FTP to the xbox so cant change any folders/files etc....what should I do!!!

Do I have to start again??

Wow, I am so glad there are good people in the world.

This thread would have definitely helped me out when I messed up XBMC, but I figured it out.

Good Job Paul and Geeba.
