    Ok, so today I tried to use this Hatsune Miku skin from NDSThemes on my AK2.

    I am running AKAIO 1.5.1.

    I get it to reboot, but then it freezes upon trying to reload. Merely displaying Miku on the bottom screen and a blank black top screen.

    Now, I did get my AK2 to reload properly by changing the ui settings in the globalsettings.ini file to that of another skin. However it still freezes everytime I select this skin.

    I also have a Windows Media Player skin that doesn't load properly. It loads but everything aside from the text is garbled and corrupted.

    I also apparently have this file in the _aio folder. In Linux it shows up as Gibberish, and it says that it is 4GB in size. Which doesn't make sense becuase if it were then my MicroSDHC card would be beyond full as there is already 4.5 GB taken up on it (It would end up as 8.5 GB/8 GB). Is this bad, I mean should I delete it?

    Well, it's a good thing I have a backup of everything on my Acekard2 before I do this eh.

    It appears that Ubuntu doesn't wanna put it in it's trash (Cant blame it either), so it gave me the option to delete it permanently which I did.

    Now my only issue is with that Skin.

    Possibly it is faulty and not working with AK2i so well? Could not be working with certain versions of AK's firmware. Just forget about the skin.

    This has happened to me with some skins as well, BTW.

    I think I may have figured out the issue with the Miku Skin.

    The uisettings.ini file in the folder containing the skin files was improperly formatted. I'm going to try and see if this fixes it.

    Still doesn't explain the issues I'm having with the WMP skin, oh well.

    Is it safe for me to delete that skin and any other that gives me that gibberish when I apply it?

    Of course! Skins are entirely optional!

    Ok, the Hatsune Miku theme is definately bad.

    Fixing up the .ini's did nothing, still froze.

    However I fixed the WMP and the Homebrew Channel theme I had. Ran em through Dave Trolleys AK2 skin editor, and low and behold several files didn't have the correct number of bits. They are working fine now.

    I'm using the Homebrew Channel one. I looks nice.
