Problems with nLaunch
« on: May 13, 2013, 04:23:14 am »
Good Morning,

I have some trouble with installing nLaunch on my CAS Touch calculator. At first I want to make a backup because

{{Warning|This method will format all data in the process. Make sure that all data on the calculator is backed up.}}
  and I found a function in TiLP but it is gray and not selectable. I am using TiLP 1.17. An other thing is that I don't get access to the maintenance menu. I put the batteries out, put them in again, hold doc, menu and ee and press on. But the calculator starts normal even after several tries. I used this tutorial https://github.com/bibanon/android-development-codex/wiki/Nspire-Nlaunch and the included readme.

PS.: I found out that I can change the boot order to boot diags before boot2. Is the diags the maintenance menu because I can't find the option to delete me OS?

Edit: Oops, I thought the commands on the page and in the readme are the same but they aren't. Somebody should change the commands for the Touch to doc, enter end ee. If I delete the OS will my docs deleted too? How can I make a backup without TINCS?

Sorry for double post.
I found a tutorial that solved all my problems: http://tiplanet.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=11025&p=134150&lang=en
My next question, maybe sounds a little foolish, is how can I get linux on my CAS?

For linux, that thread can be found here: http://ourl.ca/17131

That doesn't help me. I have really no clue how to do it. Is not there a tut or something like that?

1-open a folder on your nspire called "Linux"
2-go to this site: http://tiplanet.org/nspire-linux-builds/
3- download a kernel (you can chose between xconfig or expanded), the initdr (http://tiplanet.org/nspire-linux-builds/initrd.tns), the linuxloader and the script (http://tiplanet.org/nspire-linux-builds/start_initrd.ll2.tns )
 4-send this 4 files to your "Linux" folder
5-open your ndless.cfg.tns and add a line: ext.ll2=linuxloader2
6-run start_initrd.ll2.tns

ps.:the script is optional

Thank you very much. Somebody should pin it somewhere in the Linux thread.
