I tried to test the latest zImage and it worked, so maybe your ndless version is too old.
If it doesn't work after an upgrade, could you try to boot with "cx_use_otg" and plug it into your pc?
Does it get recognized?

Edit: My CX CAS says "Machine Number: 4443"

How would I boot with cx_use_otg, where would I put that command?

EDIT: I tried installing the USB driver for TiLP and my computer is complaining about it being unsigned... Now what?  ???

Edit your bootscript and append it to cmdline.

Edit: Try to boot with F8 and select the option you think might be useful ;)

Thanks. I think I found an article that might help. It uses bcdedit.exe to do that longer-term.

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?

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.

Yeah, that's an older version of the bootloader. The machine number changed in the recent version. You'll need to grab a more recent version.

Thanks, I will do that. I have almost given up on TiLP, it is still not recognizing the nspire, although I have enabled unsigned drivers and manually installed the TiLP driver. I will have to bring up that issue on a TiLP thread...

EDIT: Will have to try updating ndless, still not quite working... is there a ndless program to update the OS (and therefore ndless)?

I wouldn't be surprised if TiLP is currently broken, because there are a bunch of people lately who had no success connecting their Nspire to it all of a sudden, or it might be cross compatibility issues. Better bring it up in the thread.

is there a ndless program to update the OS (and therefore ndless)?
Why do you want to update your Nspire OS ?
Only 3.1.0 is compatible with Ndless 3.1 because other OSes don't have the same flaws.

I think he's asking whether there would be a way to update the OS and get ndless to work on it during installation

Ndless is installed as an OS after moving the resource files. I was asking if there was a program to essentially update ndless inside ndless. I have a makeshift solution I will try, likely tomorrow, but I was wondering if there was such a program.

The warning about unsigned drivers is spurious. It's not needed to enabled unsigned drivers for TILP to work, even on Windows 7 x64 (which is one of my test platforms).

What is the difference between the defconfig and expanded kernels? Do I need to do anything to either for them to work?

The defconfig kernel contains little but the bare minimum required to boot; the expanded kernel contains significantly wider hardware support.

Ok, I got the kernel to work, but now the USB isn't initializing correctly because of the older boot script I have. Could someone provide me with a working USB boot script that they use? (for the new bootloader2).
