« on: November 21, 2012, 08:34:51 am »
I found an NSpire Color sold at 450 yuan here.
http://cncalc.org/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=8094
Interesting... I want to buy one~ Any idea?
And I want to ask Critor if the prototype one can install ndless?

Unless the Nspire Color prototype is running OS 3.1.0.392 (certainly signed with the prototype keys), nope.

OHHHH NOOOOOO that's an OS. 3.0 one...
So, what can i do with a CX prototype? Playing Lua games only? Or maybe it is possible to mod the prototype, just like what has been done on a clickpad one?

You can do less in the way of useful stuff than with production models.

If the outdated OS version it contains supports Lua, the implemented Lua is compatible with what TI provided in OS 3.0.1, and the document format is the same... maybe.

Unlike Clickpad Nspires, Touchpad, CX and CM Nspires do not have an external NOR Flash chip, which can be either directly reprogrammed (on prototypes) or reprogrammed after minor, easy hardware modification (production models), in such a way that all Clickpad Nspires (not just prototypes) can run arbitrary boot1, boot2 and OS.
Modding Touchpad and later Nspires is therefore very much harder than modding Clickpads.

Do you have the exact version number?

You won't be able to install production OS 3.1.0 and won't be able to install Ndless 3.1.

But, you'll be able to install development OS 3.1 which might have the same exploit - Ndless could be ported to thoses OSes. Note that I don't have any 3.1 development build.

The same exploit used with OS 3.0.1 to dump the Boot1 is present in OS 3.0.0.
It might be used to port Ndless - interest in this exploit dropped allmost immediately as it was fixed in OS 3.0.2.

Although I haven't had the time to news about it, unlike production CX/CM my Nspire Color prototype has an external Flash NOR chip.
But it's a completely different chip than the ClickPad one.

So I don't know if it is flashable, and if it is it will require a specific asm program.



If you buy it, I'll be interested into sharing some dumping tools with you ;)

I'd be interested in it, too, if you decided you didnt want it and there were some way to program it (in assembly). Northern_snow: where did you get 350元 from? It looks like it's 450元.

I didn't know there were any Chinese calculator forums :D

EDIT: Btw, who's zhengran14? Is it someone from here?

Oh yes it's 450 yuan. And zhengran14 is just a junior high school student in shanghai.
OS 3.0.0.1045

Mine has OS 3.0.0.0.

So 3.0.0.1045 is very interesting.
Who buys it? ;)

Ah ok, they seem to know quite a bit (talking about WabbitEmu, Axe, etc.)

That's up to northern_snow ;) I don't need it but it's definitely tempting.

OK I'll buy it.
(But I have another idea. Critor, I want to send this model to you and you send a production model to me, and I pay the shipping cost.)

I'll pay the shipping cost for the production CX myself, don't worry about that.

OK. Finally I bought it at 400 yuan. It may arrive 3 or 4 days later, then I will send it to critor via DHL.
Btw, it seems like chickendude is a Chinese. Then you really should come to the Chinese calc forum cncalc.org.  Not many people do program, especially for Nspire(C/ASM). My ID is 朔雪X忆, and 朔雪 exactly means northern snow ;-)
