Nspire 84+ crash requires reinstall
« on: August 11, 2010, 02:19:59 pm »
I've encountered this a few times. An asm program crashes in the 84+ mode of the nspire. The crash should just be a ram clear away from fixing itself, but since the nspire emu saves the state, it has to reinstall the entire nspire os, just to get the 84 emu working again!

has anyone found a way around this? It's really annoying. I lose all my work, and I have to update my OS, which takes a good 15 minutes. (for several tasks, not just the transfer)

What os do you run? If it is 2.0, a simple 2nd+mode+on=zero should fix it

Try using instead the reset button behind the Nspire.
On some OSes, this completely wipes out the 84+'s RAM and ROM, but on the newer ones, it just reboots the calc and does a RAM Clear.

So, download 1.6, that is the most stable

Where? I only know of that one site with 1.1-2.1 but I can't find it anymore. I had to reformat my PC since then, and lost the bookmark :P

Edit: NVM I found one

Sometimes using the reset button fixes the crash, but when it doesn't, then you need to format the calc. If that fais, then you need to reinstall the OS x.x

I'm not sure where to find OS 1.6, though. Does it works on 1.7?

I've got os 1.1 now, I'm gonna try my hand at ndless and some C. If I can get it working, anyways, 1.1 has serious issues on non-1.0 installed calcs.

Eh, 1.6 is the best for TI-84 mode

I prefer 1.7 because it eats my batteries much less faster and still lets me use OSes below 2.53MP
