8X+ > finding last app page
« on: September 26, 2014, 01:55:19 am »

Alright, here is the thing :
I already coded a routine to find the last app page (start of the apps area).
But today, while i was reading some stuff on wikiti, i just saw that port 23 holds the last app page - 1 :
Of course, it would be quite a speed & size inprovement to just read that port, but i'm not sure how safe it is to rely on it.
I mean, if it was so easy, why would this page tell how to find it manually :

Should i replace my routine by just a simple port read or should i be paranoid ?
