well it blocks PRGM and APPS, so hopefully the user is going to use 'Clear Entries' to prevent that from happening.
but yeah, you can unblock those (or unprotect your calc), and pulling a battery in a program will clear the hook.

Of course it's reversible, but how long does it take to switch between the two? :P

Mine can be done instantaneously, and on-calc... but it is less secure.  Plus, if you forget your password, you gotta wait till you have a screwdriver or link cable available to uninstall...  I just realized another security flaw. resending the OS, or just sending a blank app with the same name... :P (how am I supposed to block those ???)

EDIT: really? graphing? who would'a guessed... lets block that key too :P

My TI-94+SE is broken.  I used some flawed existential conditioning on it, and it crashed. :(

Spoiler For Securite:

A couple security flaws
Need a good backdoor short of reinstalling the OS
Completely immobilized and invalidated by Zstart. And rendered incompatible.

framework: mostly done
graphics engine: undergoing complete rewrite

It takes about 1 minute on calc to install or uninstall.

You could even pull a battery while doing a really long calculation to get a ram clear. In fact, the only time you won't get a ram clear is if the OS is doing nothing.

Or you could pull a battery, wait about 5 seconds, hold delete, then put the battery back in. That is just as effective as pulling all 5 batteries and it has saved me from several nasty crashes.

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.

Thepenguin77, can the final OS patch that allows still allows deleting apps/progs, but moves it, be ported to the 2.43?

Problem solved, I thought about this today during school. The memory menu is still the best way to delete stuff, so why not just hide it? I put it in the Stat>Tests>Bottom. I overwrote ANOVA(, but who uses ANOVA(? (It's still in the catalog ;))

You can just reinstall this right over the old one, it does the whole thing so it's just redoing what the first one did.
Awesome THepenguin77. I also saw the screenshot on the previous page, cool stuff.

I hope his friends aren't reading this topic, though. O.O (to figure out how to bypass this OS patch protection)

In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

My "friends" aren't really friends lol.  Also, they aren't smart enough to mess with Axe, and as far as I know, they don't even know about Axe. 
* yunhua98 hopes they never will, either, unless they dramatically change lol

Are they smart enough to do the FLASH self-test to clear the archive?

Isn't that in the boot code? The boot code is untouchable...

That can only be invoked when you don't have an OS. And it clears all the flash, not just the archive.

Thepenguin77, can the final OS patch that allows still allows deleting apps/progs, but moves it, be ported to the 2.43?

I already did. Check back in the responses.

Yeah personally I wouldn't call them friends, lol. I hope the two that registered here aren't the ones who actually do that, though, I doubt they'll have a good reputation here if this is the case. X.x

kentuckyfac#1 is really just here to do what I always do, although I think he lost interest.  qrenalds isn't like that, although he seems to only be interested in playing games lol.

thepenguin77, is it possible for you to make IPS patches (aka PolyPatch format) from your program based patches? (Both "pi" and hidden menu patches) That would be awesome! :D

I'm sorry, thepenguin. Is it possible for you to release a patch for the TI-83+ OS's to do this. Alot more people (I've seen) use them.
