Stuck upgrading CX to CX CAS nlaunch.tco does nothing.
« on: September 26, 2013, 03:40:55 pm »
Hey guys, I am at the last step of upgrading my cx to a cas cx. Sending the nlaunch.tco file to my ti device does nothing. I get the typical error message, but my calc stays stuck on 60% with the "no os installed" message. I have tried d/l different nlanch.tco files but that did not fix anything.

Any ideas on what I can try?

Just try to send the .tco again - as explained in the Nlaunch CX readme, there is some randomness. Unplugging the USB just after sending the file might help.

If it definately doesn't want to work, then you probably missed one of the steps.

These were the steps i followed


PREVIOUSLY : in case you have installed Ndless in the past, uninstall , launching ' ndless_ressources 'in the' Ndless 'on the calculator.
Calculator restarts.
(NB: If you do not want to keep Ndless later you can delete the folder ' Ndless 'calculator AFTER you have uninstalled.)SPOILER: SHOW

Download the software transfer: http://ti-pla.net/a5489
Install the software transfer of TI-Nspire Computer Link ', double click' TI_Nspire_Computer_Link_3.2.0.123.exe '


Connect your calculator, turn on, open the software, if the software provides updates, SAY NO TO

Open the folder ' TI-Nspire CX 'of this pack and send the file' nlaunch 'to the calculator in the' my filing 'via
Turn the calculator  : NSCT:  : Nson:
Handling difficult if you only have two hands:
Simultaneously press : Nsee:+ : NSDO:+  : NSEN:
Without let go, Cope to click on the ' reset 'with a pen or a touch on the back of the TI-Nspire CX.



IT displays a diagnostic screen: ' Maintenance Options . '
Type  : Ns2:then  : Ns1: . (to delete the current OS)
When the message " Press Any key to restart 'appears, press any key.


IT restarts, but displays a message " Operating System not found. Send OS upgrade now. '
Reopen transfer software, click the icon at the bottom right of the window and select your IT in the list.


Send ' nlaunch.tco 'the calculator. [Yes] to the warning.
Very shortly thereafter, an error message appears.
Disconnect the calculator, close the program, and the wait time calculator to start up (maximum 3 minutes).
Perhaps the calculator restarts 2 or 3 times. You must note the presence of characters' ABC123 'at the top left of the start screen


^^I used the Pack_de_transformation_TI_Nspire__CX__en_TI_Nspire__CX__CAS___ (1).zip from TI-planet.

right now my OS is deleted and stuck on the 60% bar screen. I was going to try to process using TNOC_en.exe, but when i try and send my TI-NspireCXCAS-3.2.3.1233_b.tcc file to my calc it says I cant update my calc with an older oS

Edit: I'm not sure what steps I could have done wrong. I unpacked the files. sent the nlaunch folder over, deleted the os, sent the nlaunch.tco file and unplugged the TI. It just sits on the "operating system not found" screen. There are no letters in the upper left corner.

I have tried multiple nlaunch.tco files

OS 0.0.0
boot version 1 (3.0.99)
boot version 2 (3.24.7)

I get "wrong handheld type for the OS being sent." error when I try to send the TNOC'ed file.... I need this TI for a test I have tomorrow. Feel like I bricked it, cant get away from this "OS not found" screen.

Use the modify button instead of triple-posting, please.

Unfortunately, you have boot2 version 3.2.4.7 (and probably a J or K hardware revision) which is not supported by nLaunchy.  :-\

Find your hardware revision:


It is the letter at the end of the string beginning with P-. In this case it's A.

There is no way currently to get nLaunchy or Ndless if you have J or K.

For now, download OS 3.2.4 from http://education.ti.com/nspire/os324 so that you can at least use your calculator, but you won't be able to use nLaunchy.

Thanks so much legimet, I realized too late that I wont be able to use nlaunchy. I don't even think I am going to mess with it. I have a ti-89 titanium I can use tomorrow for my test. I just wanted the inspire cx to put my word docs on so I can use them during the test tomorrow.

Im going to sell this one on ebay next week and just get the inspire CX CAS

It sucks that you ran into a J or K model. Those are nasty for Ndless fans. X.x

Anyway if you are gonna sell your Nspire to get a new calc, I would suggest waiting for the HP Prime (assuming you don't need it in tests, since it isn't confirmed that the ban on touchscreen models have been lifted) or stick to the good ol' 89 Titanium. The other solution is to get an older Nspire by ensuring that the seller really has a A to H model.

Welcome to the forums by the way!
