Yeah true. They definitively either wanted to make Lua only available for full use by them, not us, or they want to release a paid SDK to make money from us...

If it works anything like chameleon, you'll need a custom OS, like you probably used in the tutorial. Are these OSes signed? That would be my first guess as to why it fails.
The way it happens is you cause an OS error, and send the desired OS using special link software or something (it's been a while).  The hardware is the same--with the update it's just used, when before some things weren't.  The trouble is, the update from the Casio site is packaged together with pc-calc linking stuff in an exe, and the OS has to be isolated iirc.

Can someone explain how one who turned their 9750gii into a 9860gii would be able to upgrade to 2.0.1?  I tried sending it using the application available on Casio's website and it said "model not supported."

You need Simon's updater available here: http://www.casiocalc.org/?showtopic=5606

Oh ok. I wonder why they did remove it ???

As far as I know, there was some trouble with Asian countries, because OS 2.00 has features which are not allowed there and as Asia is the Slim's main market, they had to remove it.

I downloaded 2.0 for Slim from here http://casio.bank.free.fr/index.php?mod=archives&ac=voir&id=128

I clicked on "Telecharger" Is this the (magical) file I need? (OS 2.0 string support and cool random number functions)

And is this file in English?

Awesomeness. Will do.

EDIT: would it be legal to attach the .fls to a post here or something so people don't have to wait through the so-called rapidshare?
EDIT2: done!  I had to do the trick here then send it through pfxrecover, but it worked!
:w00t:

EDIT3: fixed link in edit2, went to wrong post :P

Good job! Especially because you do not own a slim. Respect.
I'll be back.

Wow nice to hear.

I wonder if Casio has plans to ever make OS 2.01 available for the Slim in the future?

A bug in the Slim GetKey routine was discovered and fixed.
All people shall update their Slim again.

New update is awesome, btw.  MP-style input in the equation solver and Y= screen ;D
