Wow, modding boot code and removing the 8kb limit all within 2 days. Program works on my friend's A revision 84+BE. TI just lost for the 9001st time.:hyper:

I just scratch the TI logo off and you're good to go!

Sure they can. They can just revise the hardware. A little expensive, perhaps, but doable. Then all future students will be stuck with the changes.

Do you really think they'd mod the hardware to lock us out? That would suck and be pretty expensive for TI

It depends on how much pressure they're under to do it. Don't count it out.

They would only do that if testing people realized these changes would allow people to cheat.

Well, it is already trivial to use a calculator to cheat, but if say a custom os was made that had a CAS and no press 2 test, there could be issues.

The RAM page 0 protection has nothing to do with loading custom OSes :P

This specific hack doesn't really do much to the calculator that would help cheating I don't think

True, but the fact TI now has absolutely no control over what is going on their calculators will make some testing people nervous.
EDIT: 1 more post and I'm at 1K :D
