Can someone tell me what this is?
« on: December 20, 2012, 02:07:21 pm »
So I was using the GBA emulator and I went up a level from documents. I found some folders called:

dev
tmp
phoenix
documents
ti84
logs
widgets
wlan
temp_ccp
images

What are these?

Basically, this is what your calculator needs to run properly its OS (even though some things are useless in there, deletable with nCleaner) and this is also where you can hide files and folders using HideManager, to save time when accessing the MyDocuments menu.
(Note that Phoenix is the codename given to the nspire series for example, iirc, and Documents is where you store... your documents :P)

If you need more details, I think that Critor is the person to ask to ;)

I am very curious about ti84 and wlan. But I don't think that wlan is for Wireless Local Area Network.

What is this HideManager you talk about Hayleia? These is kind of the root folder of you calc. maybe widgets is used for lua?

The WLAN is likely for the navigator things. Don't those use a wireless interface?

It is a tool made by Levak that allows you to put files and folders in a folder called "hidden" that will be placed in the root of the calculator (so in the place seen by Augs) so that they are hidden (duh) and so that the OS doesn't look for them when displaying documents (so it takes less time to display the documents menu). Here is a topic about it on Omnimaga.

I am very curious about ti84 and wlan. But I don't think that wlan is for Wireless Local Area Network.
The ti84 is for the 84+ emulator that was present in the old Nspires. But it is not present on the CXes (so interchangeable keypads).
And why the wlan would not be Wireless Local Area Network ? The CX can have access to wifi using some external devices. See on the official website (sorry, in French, couldn't find the page in English) here.

It's the content of the filesystem, used by the OS (Nucleus).
It included many things such as language files.

Assuming you are using your nspire in "regular" mode:
Code: [Select]
dev //Nothing there
tmp  //Nothing there either
phoenix  //Language files + config + useless files like 2 .svg of the Nspire
documents  //Your documents
ti84  //As described above, contains the emulator
logs  //Nothing there either
widgets  //widgets from the .tns files (nothing to do with lua). I never found anything there
wlan
temp_ccp // Nothing here
images // Images in .tns files are stored there when the .tns is open

You can also get some other folders...

A ti84 emulator? Why can't we use it?

You can only use it when you plug a TI-84 keyboard to your Nspire, and if the installed OS includes the emulator.

That means it's only for Clickpad/Touchpad non-CAS.

So... Is the ti84 folder just a waste of space on the cx?

There is a CX-OS (3.0.something) where TI forgot to remove the emulator. In this case, this was a waste of space.

In other OSes, it should not even exists, and if it exists, it would be emtpy.
