TI-83+
« on: September 19, 2011, 06:08:16 am »
Hi!
I just bought used TI-83+
I went to that [Mode][Alpha] S menu and it says: BOOT v1.00 and BASE v1.03

Now, what would you recommend me (I'd like to begin ASM programing on this thing) to do? Upgrade to 1.19, install MirageOS, something else?
What's the big deal with MirageOS anyways?
And, I'm a bit afraid of flashing offical v1.19 as I don't know does it flash Boot v1.03 (which has some strict security and needs that special app to replace certificate) or not?

Thanks

I believe MirageOS is a shell that lets you run ION and MIRAGEOS programs. You don't need it to run normal ASM programs(In fact, I think MirageOS is outdated).
I think boot v1.03 is just for TI84+MP.
Sig wipe!

If you want to run lots of assembly programs that you can download off of sites like this one, cemetech.net, or ticalc.org, Doors CS 7 is the way to go, for now. It's probably the best shell out there currently. The thing about MirageOS and Doors CS is that it allows assembly programmers to have a library of functions that they can use. This is also why some MirageOS programs don't work from the home screen, and stuff like that. However, Doors CS 7 has full MirageOS/ION support, along with xLib and Celtic and a whole bunch of it's own functions.

The boot code is never updated by OS updates - in fact, it's supposed to be completely impossible to change any part of it. Also, the 1.03 boot code is only for the 84+(SE).
