Dumping a TI-84+ Silver Edition ROM
« on: July 28, 2010, 08:56:12 pm »
I've tried multiple different pieces of software multiple times, and I can never seem to find a way to dump my 84+ SE's  ROM. It's never been a problem for me in the past. I actually was looking for TI-BASIC editors a while ago and one happened to come across one that was secretly bundled with VTI and a TI-83+ ROM (they better hope TI doesn't find out about this). But anyways, I haven't had any problems with this ancient 83+, non-SE, OS 1.12 ROM. Until now.

I'm using a new computer, and wabbitemu just doesn't seem to work properly. It's probably my computer, so I'm installing VMWare Player with an old XP disc as I'm typing this, in hopes that wabbitemu will work fine on that. However, it may just be my computer not liking the ROM, and having a ROM with a really old OS and not much archive space wasn't too fun to work with anyways.



tl;dr best/easiest way to dump a TI-84+ SE ROM?

If you're using Windows or x86/64 linux/mac, use rom8x, with wine for the last two
Edit: This is on ticalc.org, btw

i'm not very good with computers, and i'm confused at this line:
Quote
AppVar D84PSE1 should be created:  send this to the rom8x.exe directory on your computer via your linking software and then delete it from your calculator.

I have AppVar D84PSE1 on my computer, but how do i send it to rom8x.exe's directory?

move it to the folder it's in.
Technically you don't need to, as long as you know how to use command prompt.
Otherwise do it and follow instructions on readme.

i'm probably failing really badly right now but what i've got is this:

rom8x.exe, the two appvars, and a copy of the 2.43 operating system in a folder titled ROMPDUMP under My Documents.

knowing that i'm running Windows XP and the username of the account i'm on is "Ryan", and that my knowledge of the command prompt is absolutely nill, can anyone tell me what to do next?

Windows-R
cmd
cd My Documents
(If this doesn't work, use:)
cd Documents
cd ROMPDUMP
rom8x -u (Insert name of OS file here)

Edit: by Windows-R I mean hold the windows key, press R, and release both.

and cd Documents gives an invalid directory.

Hm... how about opening the ROMPDUMP directory in Windows Explorer, shift-right-clicking, and choose "open command window here"
Then you only need to type the last line.

shift-right-click where? i tried on rom8x.exe, then the ROMDUMP folder, then in blank white space but i couldn't find any option that said "open command window here" or anything similar.
