It should be, if you write it into the boot code with TI's utility.

I's possible to write in a TI-73/83+/84+ boot code using only softwares?

If I recall correctly, TI released a utility that allowed you to run programs on boot. I can't remember the specifics though.

Oh, no I mean removing the memory menu completely from the OS and then making a separate app that handles the same stuff as the memory menu (obviously with an updated/upgraded look and ability). Then they couldn't even access the memory menu to begin with. You could even protect your app with a password...

Actually this wouldn't even be that hard in Axe. Archive, UnArchive, Delvar, all you need is a menu interface and knowledge of how to sort the VAT and you're good :)

Now I want to make that...lol

ti's utility to run stuff on startup is called, aptly, StartUp (iirc) and it's not exactly fool proof.

You can't write into the page 7F boot code with software.  Let's see, the best I can figure for this is the menu hook:

zStart has a mechanism to modify the OS to run itself even after a battery pull, so you can look at its source for ideas :)
Alternatively, if you want to just remove that reset menu entirely, one could look through an OS disassembly, patch the OS accordingly, and release a patch. (Just the patch, not the modified OS, for legal reasons.)

zStart would help if combined with Omnicalc's memory block function. Of course they could always disable Omnicalc and kill it, but a simple ram clear wouldn't fix their problems.

I'll look into this and probably fix it tomorrow. I'm thinking of changing the menu data so that the Reset menu only has 1 option, which is RAM clear. I could also completely wipe out the Mem > 2 menu. Do you want that too?

Edit:
    I can just change the Mem > 2 to like sin( or something. That would kill it.

You can build a statue out of either 1'x1' blocks or 12'x12' blocks. The 1'x1' blocks will take a lot longer, but the final product is worth it.

You cannot delete applications/appvars with the patched OS.

But there is a way to delete programs.
Just unarchive the programs you want to remove,  and make a RAM reset.
