That's if the calc can be hacked at all. <_<

It would be hilarious if we could install an actual TI-84+ OS on it, but sadly I think it's gonna be protected by a 2048 signed key or something.

It's been reported to TI and they confirmed it, so when the next OS version is out, I'm pretty sure it will be fixed. But I have no idea when a new OS release is going to happen.

Quote from: CKH4 on April 07, 2015, 03:35:19 amMaybe the TI-82 Advance is targeting schools that used the TI-76.Fr?

It's not even the problem here. Because every student will need a exam-rules-compliant calculator by 2018, they will only have the choice between the TI-82 Advanced, TI-83 Premium CE, or TI-Nspire CX CAS. (And, well, whatever new model TI can release until 2018). So, the 73/76 etc. are just out of the market.

Wait there's going to be a new 8x OS?
For the CE, yes. I am unsure if the TI-82+, 83+, 83+Fr USB, 83+SE, 84+, 84+SE and 84+CSE will ever be updated again.

Wow TI, really? They're locking down Z80 calcs too?

Unless it's to give people incentive to pay more and go with the CE instead. But I hope it's not in response to the hacking of the CE discussions going on.

In the industry, development cycles for new products, even those which are small modifications to existing ones, take months. The 82A was already locked down long before the recent availability of the 84+CE, and the subsequent, unsurprising quick reverse-engineering :)

Ohh, on that brick :) Though i presume it will be very much like the CSE os?

Yeah it's very similar, but of course it has quite a bit of new features too.

Duke "Tape" Eiyeron

What kind of features do they have? I'm curious to see what could they could have added.

Snektron

i could think of a lot of nice features, though TI probably wouldn't implement them <_<

Snektron

CKH4

On the ti 82 advanced one of the changes was to remove asm(. They said it was to make it more testing friendly or cheaper or something.


Snektron

Ooohhh, sorry, i thought it was referring to the new CE os <_<
