See our answers in the other topic.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

The prototype one given on tiplanet is specifically for people who own prototypes and who can't do anything with publicly available things or with another producation, on-the-market, device, because then, dumping would suffice.

But I guess you could ask around directly to some people if they are willing to give it to you. But that might be illegal too, and it definitely would be if yo don't own the device yourself.

I'd really like to get the CX side working, but so far I've only got the 3.0.0 DEVBUILD to work. Is there a way to patch the 3.0.0 DEVBUILD boot1 so that it has production keys instead of development keys?

Patches are available to disable the keys check on Development and Production Boot1 1.1. They've been made in order to let prototype owners upgrade their unit with the latest OSes.

A similar patch may be possible for the Development 3.0.0.DEVBUILD Boot1 but hasn't been released so far.

Here are the Boot1 1.1 patches:

Question: does kArmTI run with the /W command-line flag on by default. Every time I boot the 3.0.0 CX CAS DEVBUILD boot1, the emulator issues a warning (as does nspire_emu) and I have to enter 'c' in the debugger to keep booting.

I'm sorry, but i don't think i can help you with that 'boot1 3.0.0 CX CAS'. Actually, i don't own it so i could not test it. So far, the only version of CX CAS boot1 that i've tested is version 3.0.99.

SpiroH, this my humble contribution to these great emulators.

Testing nSpire_emu and kArmTI with some different ROMs I have found a problem emulating the CX prototype. Boot1CX-3.0.0.DEVBUILD rises a warning in the emulator and it breaks as DoctorWkt has already reported.
Code: [Select]
Boot Loader Stage 1 (3.00.DEVBUILD)
Build: 2010/9/14, 16:30:29
Copyright (c) 2006-2010 Texas Instruments Incorporated
Using developer keys

Last boot progress: 65
Warning at PC=00007718: Bad write_byte: 0001c634 00
debug> c

We have to press c for continue the execution as a workaround.

Last night user fortytwo, in the #omnimaga IRC channel, helped on solving this issue. He changed line 47 of emu.c initializing the boolean break_on_warn flag as false in order to run smoothly. Maybe the emulator could include another command line argument such as /W in order to activate break_on_warn flag if desired.

fortytwo compiled a test version of nSpire_emu and it runs smoothly. Could you do the same with kArmTI?

Thanks in advance!!!!


SpiroH, let me raise an issue with kArmTI not seen with nSpire_Emu. I am playing around with the emulators and nSpire_emu can run Diags using this command line:


Code: [Select]
nspire_emu.exe /1=boot1cx.tns  /MX /PD=diagscx.tnsIt loads the Diags code showing the available tests. This is the console printout:

It just halts. Is it a failure of the emulator or am I not configuring it correctly?

Thanks



Also, I take it that 3.0.0 boot1 can't boot later 3.x boot2s?

Yeah, i gather there's been some boot1 changes, but then again i'm not an expert on this version-tracking stuff. Maybe some other people, like Goplat can provide further input (?).

In the meantime, try to find a more up-todate boot1, if you can :). Cheers,

I can just test nSpire CAS and the nSpire CX prototype since I do not have any other than mine and the CX prototype Boot1 Rom. I'd like to compare the rest but I can not do it alone since I can not find more Boot1 ROMs. Suggestions are welcome, if anyone wants to help please PM me.

Thanks again for these great emulators!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Any idea on how to press multiple keys in the nspire_emu or kArmTI? I would like to test the maintenance menus.

A good improvement could be to integrate these combinations under the tools menu bar.

Thanks again

By the way, just to clarify things, nspire_emu is made by Goplat, not SpiroH. KarmTI is based on nspire_emu and is being worked on by SpiroH, but Goplat is not involved in it.

Oh I am sorry if my posts are not clear on that. I was just trying to help SpiroH in better locating the issues since kArmTI was a branch of nspire_emu. I've also posted a similar post in nspire_emu thread with issues found in Goplat's emulator. I appreciate the excelent work made by both in helping others to test the code with no risk and sharing their work in the emulator engine and GUI.

Regards

Not really. kArmTI is an independent fork of nspire_emu, and a closed-source one, at that.

Hi Boot1 (what a kicking nick!!),
First off, thanks for your kind words (these days they are pretty rare and you don't need travel very far, mind you). I wish you well!
As to the multiple keys, it's a feature that shouldn't be that hard to implement but i don't think it should be given a very high priority. Maybe later, if i can find some spare time i'll look at it.
Debug Builds: Well, i simply didn't bother to test them (i don't have them in the first place!). IMO for testing these builds, you'll be much better off if you use the nspire_emu source-code, figure out where you need to make changes and off you go... Regards, ;)

I have the same exact file structure as you and it works in both nspire_emu and kArmTI (version 40).
However, when I add a skin in the SKINS folder, I get a weird glitch showing me this:


I can't resize the window and I tried with several different skins :(

Do you know a way to fix my issue?

By the way, awesome fork :D

EDIT: I forgot to copy the PNG image of the calculator, that is why it didn't work!

Hi Le Solutionneur. I've seen the same issue under different conditions. What is the command line you are using? What calculator are you emulating? What Boot1 ROM are you using? what skin are you using?

WHen that happens you can always press Alt key and then the down arrow. That will display the drop down menus of the menu bar. Press right arrow (two times) until Keypad menu is displayed. Then select the right calculator.

Maybe you are having the same problem with warnings. In that case press F10 key and in case you see the debugger prompt "Debug>" then just send the "c" command for continue.

I hope it helps.

It's been a while since i've last posted here any programming stuff. So, today I am posting an update to the kArmTI's Help file which includes the AVI Capture tool and the UsbExplorer. At the same time i'm enclosing a tiny update to kArmTI-v.150 with mostly cosmetic issues but also a 'Skins Previewer' and a minor improvement to the usbexplorer host-side to make it easier to browse up and down the directories. Please have a look at the Help HTML file for some new screenhots. As usual, give it a try and report back any eventual new issues.
