First, yay! I'm glad it finally worked
Yeah, I forgot that it doesn't have the tns extension. Actually, I think I'll say to rename it to just 'nspire.dtb.tns' so that they don't need to change the boot script.
About your not being able to type issue, make sure not to touch the touchpad after you launch the start_usb script. For some reason it'll break the keyboard in linux. Once it's all booted up though you should be able to touch it again.
And lastly, thanks for using my tutorial, and showing me where I needed to update it.

Not being able to type? Well, I can type, but that bit about the touchpad is interesting. What my problem is I can't figure out what the username and password are. I tried root/toor, root/(password I set in the tutorial), (blank)/root, (blank)/(password I set in the tutorial), and I have no name!/(password I set in the tutorial). Is there an emergency login I can use?

Also, you're welcome
Oh, I misread your problem. Are you absolutely sure you typed the password correctly? Remember that not every button on the Nspire keyboard types what is printed on it. I would recommend having your password be just letters and/or numbers, no special characters.

My password is only numbers and letters... now that I'm thinking back on it, I probably should've made it something simple, like "root". Anyway, even if I have the password 100% correct, what would the username be?

Thank you. This time, I'll try typing it in very slowly.
EDIT: Huzzah! Everything is working properly! USB-OTG definitely is not the best, though. I should probably look into getting a shorter one.

Hey Ivoah,

linux boots correctly, but the filesystem is read-only, so I cant install any software.

Any idea how I can fix it?
Sorry if there are any mistakes.

Try this (you might need sudo if you aren't root)
Code: [Select]
mount -o remount /

Actually, I believe the correct command is
Code: [Select]
mount -o remount,rw /
@Ivoah , isn't the filesystem supposed to be mounted read/write at all times?

Thanks for correcting me And yeah, IDK why it gets mounted as read-only, I had the same issue. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
