Wouldn't dual booting let you use more of the hardware than an app?

Probably. You wouldn't have to worry about using things that would need to be restored when exiting the app. But since that is a choice in the poll, it means that it is possible to make it an app, and if it is possible, why make a dual boot (I don't even know how) if you can just make an app ?

Sorry if I answer with something that seems unrelated, English is not my primary language and I might not have understood well. Sorry if I make English mistakes too.

For CSE mode, what would be nice is if we could use 160x240 mode as an option for the main UI and most basic softwares like program editors. It would be much faster to type text and scroll though code.
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

Good idea. I will ask what is the status of that. Legacy mode probably use it.

By the way, the nightly builds include emulation-ready ROMs. So you don't need to "sacrifice" a calculator for testing. I do it because I can and because hardware is more awesome. :P
