Does your school flat out bans other calc models from classes or do they just force students to use one in class without necessarily having to buy one?
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

When sending an old os to the nspire, what causes it to be rejected? The software or the nspire itself? It's probably the nspire, but just making sure.
Also, the annoying upgrade message could be removed, and the force update option could be also.

In grade 9 we can choose whether we want to make Math-Abitur with or without CAS.
It also states something like "The calculator which is going to be used is an Nspire CX CAS or older model".
I don't know if it is allowed to use other calculators, but the nspire CAS is the most powerful and feature rich (yet), so it would be stupid not to use it.

Uhh.. there is always the TI-89 Titanium! CAS and no battles with TI either!
Although the nspire may be the newest and have the newest features, using a TI-89 could get around the CAS problem.

Well, if it states "older model", then this pretty much means any older model from 1990 until today, so you could argue that you didn't have enough money to afford a TI-Nspire CX and bought a TI-92 instead :P.

And yeah it's a shame that the 89T is so expensive compared to the Nspire CX (although over here it's way cheaper than the CAS now).

It's the Nspire, yes.

So we're back to a modified Boot2 image, which will be rejected by the Boot1.

I (or rather my parents) payed 108€ for the calculator and 140€ overall with 60 Months extended warranty, case, power supply, handbook, and student software.
We can also lend for 20€ per year an old nspire cas clickpad if a new model is too expensive or we don't want it. For obvious reasons I chose otherwise ;)

My main gripe about school forcing TI-Nspires, though, is that they also force students to upgrade their calcs to be allowed in class. I don't know if it's your case, Vogtinator, but in United States, certain schools do that. Of course I still like some of the Nspire functions and playing games on it, but it will never get upgraded further than 3.1 and if I ever decided to return to school, where Nspires are required, I assure you that I would never bring my own CX calc to the class. I wouldn't mind doing so with my Clickpad model, though.

Also, one thing I noticed is that certain people who got TI-Nspires or Casio PRIZM calc sometimes end up buying a TI-84 Plus later to start Axe Parser programming.

Oh, at my school most teachers don't even know that the PTT mode exists.
The older clickpads don't even have an LED and also don't have a PTT mode (?).
My math teacher was quite surprised after I showed him my calculator playing music over the speakers we have in every classroom and he doesn't even care about the wires I soldered onto the dock connector.

Yeah, like probably most teachers outside of USA actually :P

The CAS Clickpads don't have LEDs, and the OSes < 2.0 didn't have the PPT mode yet IIRC.

Eh :P

No, it's OS 3.2, actually. 3D Graphs worked, but holding ESC + on didn't do anything. After the second try I gave up.

PTT was already there on OS 1.3, Adriweb.

Remember, when we were exiting the PTT mode, the LED wasn't relocked properly and could be taken control of via Ndless programs.

Oops I got confused with that presentation : http://www.covenantchristian.org/bird/TTT/NspireCalc/PressToTest.ppt  It was showing "2.0" etc. :P
(it's the one saying the leds are "hardware-secure"...)
