WARNING: DO NOT UPGRADE your TI-83 Premium CE or TI-84 Plus CE to OS 5.5.1 and higher. It removes all compatibility with most games and removes ASM/C programming! DOWNGRADING IS IMPOSSIBLE. BE WARNED! Likewise, do NOT update your TI-Nspire CX past OS 4.5.0, else using Ndless and ASM/C programs will be impossible.

HP has released firmware revision 10637 for the HP Prime. Besides some new feature additions such as being able to use a picture as graphing background and improved on-calc help, this new OS is said to improve stability and possibly fix the problems encountered in the previous firmware. This firmware was leaked by accident a week ago and later removed, but has since been re-instated.

However, backup all your data and projects before upgrading, because this firmware update in particular will format your entire Flash memory, possibly to ensure a full cleanup from potential hazardous issues left behind previous firmwares.
