Corrupt os?
« on: December 12, 2012, 02:09:15 pm »
I originally thought i found a bug in 2.53, but i tried on 4 other calculators with various oses (2.43,2.53,2.55) and it didnt work on any of them... anyways, i was just mashing keys for randomness, and i pressed [^-1][^2][^-1] then anything which would add to the statement (numbers, operators, etc.).  It sends the calculator into some endless calculation or something that cant be quit out of. (Battery pull time!)  This action is persistent through ram clears, but i have not noticed any other errant behavior in the last long time besides just discovering this.  So I wonder how/why/question everything!!

What programs have you used that might patch the OS or change it in any way? I know TI-Boy does, thepenguin's patches do, Krolypto does, I believe, and there may be others. Have you tried resending the OS? If you're curious why it's happening, you could dump the ROM and find unexpected differences that way.

Could you find some repeatable way to trigger this? Or a screenshot perhaps? That would allow us to figure out what is actually happening.

It is very repeatable, ^-1,^2,^-1, than anything, BAM!  Endless ants.  if i disable then re-enable mathprint, it will work just fine.  but then if i ram clear, it's triggerable again.

In the screenshot, on my calculator, when i would have pressed 9, it would have gone to the forever run-indicator instead of actually adding the 9.
