kernel linux/zImage.tns
cmdline root=/dev/sda earlyprintk debug console=tty0 console=ttyAMA0,115200n8 rootdelay=10
boot

The latest kernels are not working for me.

What exactly doesn't work? Kernel Panic, random pixels on the display or even crashing?

Have you tried it with an initrd?

What happens when using the new kernels, with or without using an initrd:

Bootloader starts
Loads kernel
[Loads initrd if using initrd]
Boots (well, trys too...)
Halts and displays random pixels about 3-5 pixels wide on the right side

Hmm, I have never seen that before, when does it happen? After "loading ramdisk" or even after "Login:"?
Also, which model are you using? CAS or non-CAS?

I haven't tried the "20130211_0728" kernel before, maybe there's an issue with the current build :/

Non-CAS, and it never reaches any point past the bootloader.

Would the ndless version make a difference? I can't update it with the software I have.

When did you install Ndless last? It probably would make a difference, but I don't know.
"Eris" (Ndless 3.1)
"Keto" (Ndless 3.1)
"Luna" (AMS 3.10, HW4)
"Aurora" (2.55MP)

I have ndless v3.1 beta r557 installed on my calculator.

Is there a way to install an OS without the Student Software?

EDIT: found TiLP, so upgrading ndless may be an option

It's up to r685 now, so... you should update. (I installed TiLP today, be sure to follow the instructions)
"Eris" (Ndless 3.1)
"Keto" (Ndless 3.1)
"Luna" (AMS 3.10, HW4)
"Aurora" (2.55MP)

Which instructions are those? I installed it today, but something went wrong, so I probably didn't follow them.  :-\

Rule #1: Don't have both TI's software and TilP at the same time.

Wrong ;)
This used to be true, but it has now been working for more than a year and a half (provided the user follows the instructions), since one of the TILP II 1.16 beta builds :)

Oh, that is good news! I'm always glad to be wrong about something like that. :P

The latest kernels are not working for me.

Do you have the old version of the bootloader by any chance? If you enter the bootloader (without the script), and use the mach command, what does it give you?

Your Bootloader should have white background and black text.
Something like this:

It says "Machine ID is set to 3503"
Is there more than one version of Linux bootloader v2?

I have gotten Linux to work before with an older kernel, likely an older bootloader, and an initrd.
Also, I had an older version of TiLP, so that may have been my problem.
