Ndless 3.6 becomes reality!
« on: March 15, 2014, 05:42:19 pm »
Users of TI-Nspire OS 3.6, rejoice! Ndless 3.6 is now live, after months and months of work!

First of all, to use it, make sure that you have OS 3.6 installed. Version 3.6.550 or 3.6.546 will do. In case TI ever updates to an higher OS, do not upgrade, else you could permanently lose the ability to use Ndless 3.6! To make things easier, links to every TI-OSes are available here, in case TI ever removes any link to OS 3.6 on their website in the future.

Most Ndless 3.1 programs should run fine in Ndless 3.6. Only the ones which uses hard-coded routines will most likely fail.

So after over a year of wait, every calculator are now Ndlessable again! At least, for now... but even if it gets locked again, it is still amazing news what ExtendeD and the Ndless team did, because several calculators, including many now available in stores, are currently running OS 3.6. Thanks a lot to everyone who helped contribute to this amazing achievement! :thumbsup:

Like every software, Ndless 3.6 might have bugs, so make sure that after making sure you have installed Ndless properly, to report them to the Ndless team as soon as you run into them.

Also, as mentionned on TI-Planet, a new version of nLaunchy (2.4) is out too! It lets you run multiple OSes on one calc, as well as Linucx.

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

Check the list of Ndless 3.1 programs which have been updated or need to be updated for Ndless 3.6:
http://tiplanet.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=14086&p=159156#p159156

If the program you're thinking about is not in those lists, then it works directly. ;)

Why do you need 3.2 w/ CAS and 3.6 w/o? Couldn't you just use 3.6 w/ CAS?

Great job! :)

I installed nLaunchy 2.4 along with Ndless 3.6 on one of my Nspires.

You don't necessarily want to remove 3.1 since it has less bugs, is faster (except about Lua images), and gives you more RAM, according to that post.

Just read my post above yours. And don't forget about the English flag on the top right-hand corner on TI Planet to translate contents in English when available.
