They mentioned on the page, that they have multiple points of entry already figured out just for this case, tho.
Yup. It'll be a game and cat and mouse if TI starts patching them.

News / Jailbreak for TI CE calculators released (arTIfiCE)
« on: September 14, 2020, 06:04:09 pm »
A jailbreak has been released that brings back ASM/C support to CE calculators running OS 5.5 / 5.6. This jailbreak is named arTIfiCE and involves exploiting an issue with the official CabriJr application. This jailbreak also opens the door to allowing you to downgrade your calculator to an OS version that still supports ASM/C programs natively.

Its anybodies guess as for how long it will be before TI patches this issue in a new OS version.

Looking good :)

When did you plan on adding GBA and GBC support?
https://github.com/calc84maniac/tiboyce/issues/54
Not sure GBA is in the plans, or even possible.
But GBC should be possible with double buffering.
Yes, that's why the issue I linked is the issue for tracking development of that GBC support ;)

Happy birhtday, Omni, you're legal in Western Canada lol :3
I mean, in Alberta it's already been legal all year.

I posted this to Cemetech and now am here and will also on Codewalrus.

I would even propose calling TI's bluff on something. Write TI a letter, signed by a EVERY major calc development community - Cemetech, Omnimaga, Codewalrus (unity is important on this), informing them that if they do not revise their decision on C/asm, and implement exam security in a way that is conducive to teaching, learning, and doing programming, we the community will be designing, releasing and marketing our own calculator to compete with them. And if they do not walk it back.. actually follow through.

There is no action legally they could take to prevent this: it would be our own hardware and programming, no copying of names, symbols, anything. Free market, people can compete with whoever they want.
What bluff? We don't make up enough of their customer base for them to care. Not to mention, we'd need to be competing with them in a space that they already have competition in (HP & Casio). We would need to get the calculator we create to be approved for use on standardized tests, which is not easy, or cheap.

News / Re: Dropping support for OmnomIRC and Efnet

I'm kind of amazed at how fast TitanEmbeds load here. When I last tried it a few months ago, it either took 30 seconds to load or showed a 500 error message.
They must have stabilized their infrastructure since you've tried it. By the looks of their status page, the embed is the thing that goes down the most, but that said, it doesn't seem to be down for a minute or two when it is down: https://status.titanembeds.com/781045173

Now it works. :) IDK why it wasn't visible before. So, just to be clear irc.omnimaga.org is still up and bridged to discord, right?
Could have been a browser cache issue.
Yes, Omninet is still up and running :)

I mean, you could always connect to omninet since it's IRC which is an old protocol ;)
Oh, so you're not getting rid of the server itself? Cool! You got me worried there.
No, we got rid of OmnomIRC along with our Efnet channel.

You can expand the Discord chat embed in the header and it should supply you with a link to the Discord server.
Where? I don't see a discord embed on the site. I thought this was the transition period or something.
It should be there at the top, as per the original post I said we have already replaced it and didn't announce a transition period. I've attached a picture of what it should look like.

Darnit! I was using that!  :(
Now I won't be able to connect to omnomirc on my stupidly obsolete devices, nooooo!

Well, it's not something that will kill me, I guess. Where can I find a link to the discord server (and I also think the embed thing is a good idea)?

By the way, this explains why omnomirc has been acting funky recently, right?
Yes, it's been refusing to properly connect to efnet and omninet, and when it does it's been failing to properly relay messages anymore.

Due to OmnomIRC no longer being maintained by @Sorunome, we have removed it from the forum. This also means that we are no longer linking to Efnet.

We have replaced OIRC with a discord embed for those of you who prefer to chat from the forum itself.

Calculator C / Re: What's the best sprite editor for TI 68k C/ASM?
« on: June 01, 2020, 04:28:01 pm »
It looks like you can't include bmp files (https://debrouxl.github.io/gcc4ti/faq.html#15). You should open a feature request: https://github.com/debrouxl/gcc4ti/issues

Why would I use spasm for 68k?  ???
Isn't that made for the z80?
That's not what I meant. Have you tried to see if the 68k assembler you are using will allow you to include bmp files?

From what I could understand, a TI-83 Premium CE python program cannot be larger than 17.7 KB of executable code and there are a few commands that are proprietary rather than actual python. Speed is also a problem. Here is a video of the same program running on different calculator models:

Don't expect a CE python port of Reuben Quest anytime soon.
That's really disappointing to hear :( My understanding was that it supports python through a separate arm chip. I would say I'm surprised at how bad the performance is, but this is TI we are talking about :/
