    I have tried to do the same but box won’t boot off usb! Help,

    • I just updated the blog post to show how you get into the BIOS. The Xtreamer does not boot off the USB stick by default and you will have to get into the BIOS (while the stick is plugged in) and then either change the boot order or in my case I could boot straight from the “Exit tab” in the BIOS – there was an option to boot off the stick.

      As far as I can remember, the EFI boot option does not work, but the BIOS should show both the EFI and the non-EFI option. I can update with screenshots tonight if you struggle.

            Sorry to be a pain, have done a search but seem to find link for the Titanium Skin.

          • That’s weird – did you go into “System -> Addons” and then from repositories there should be an option to install Skins – I will take a screenshot tonight if you struggle.

            What should i do when i want new skin /titanium, aeon 5, …/?

          • You would just go into your System -> Appearance settings and then select the different skin (you initially download them via “System -> Addons”.

            Thank you for fast answer, but… Few days ago a have been updating my Xtreamer Ultra 2 – Kodi. But when i make this steps:
            system – settings – appearance – skin – get more… there is nothing…??? i´m online… WTF???

          • I heard that in some cases the actual repository is empty – in this case: Highlight the repository -> Bring up the context menu -> Select Force refresh

        Dear Gerd,
        I’m struggling as well that my Xtreamer Ultra 2 does not boot from USB. Would you mind sharing the screenshot of the Bios wiht the EFI and non-EFI option?
        My Xtreamer does not run stable for more than 10 minutes anymore, and downgrading back to openelec 4 did not improve the situation either, so will try a clean install from USB.
        thanks a lot in advance,
        Joost

    i created usb boot disk with openelec but no go ..
    just a blinking cursor after i with F8 chose my usb ..

    Help plz ..

    • You need to get into the BIOS of the Xtreamer and then change the boot order. I noticed that I could never boot via EFI – so this might be your problem.

  • Titanium does not appear as supported in the new prodigy 4k T_T
