It depends. If memory is a concern for you, then you should stick to OS 3.1 or 3.6. Otherwise, you can switch to 4.0 (although I don't really see the need if you don't need the calc in tests, since most Lua games run on OS 3.6). Avoid 3.9, though, because using Ndless is a major PITA on that OS.

And who bet that the title of my post will become reality to a certain extent? <_<


can confirm

You say? Otherwise, pretty nice it got released. Like, just today I recommended Ndless to a new Nspire CX user on my Facebook feed, how great is that?

Good idea. If he ever needs more help, feel free to direct him here by the way :) (since not many people on FB might know calc stuff)

I've had a look at nClock, and noticed the author hadn't even updated it for Ndless 3.9, the latest version dating from March 2014. :o
So with the help of Vogtinator, we've worked on catching up.

nClock 1.0.7 new features :
  • Full Ndless 4.0.3 support
  • Partial Ndless 3.9 support :
    • TI-Nspire CX CAS 3.9.1
    • TI-Nspire non-CAS 3.9.0



TI-Nspire CX non-CAS 3.9.1 and TI-Nspire CAS 3.9.0 aren't supported for now.

Download : https://tiplanet.org/forum/archives_voir.php?id=4416


The download still has nclock 1.0.6(well at least the big download button). I really didn't notice(cause I didn't read the version number in the readme cause I just assumed it was up to date, but I noticed upon removing everything but nclock from startup and still having my calc crash ~every 10 minutes. Other than the crashing though nclock was really.

By the way, I wonder if old games from Ndless 1.1 through Ndless 2.0 days would be compatible with Ndless 4.0.3 or if there would be ways to support them?

We have some reports that Ndless 4.0.3 installation does fail on new TI-Nspire CX assembled since November 2015.

They're using a new hardware revision: HW-W.
The hardware revision can be checked on the back. For example, below is a TI-Nspire CX HW-J :


The new HW-W is coming with a new Boot1 4.0.1.43 instead of 3.0.0.99 :



In order to patch Ndless 4.0.3 if possible, the first thing to do for the Ndless team would be to get a TI-Nspire CX HW-W.
And unfortunately, you don't know the hardware revision when you buy a new TI-Nspire CX, as you cannot check the back of the calculator.

If some of you have such a calculator, could you take some nice pictures of its front, so that we can check if there are any tiny design changes which may help indentifying them in shops ?

Thank you very much.

Thus sucks, but I am surprised they didn't release those calcs 24 hours after Ndless 4.0.3came out. It would be interesting to investigate, though. I hope Ndless 4.0.4 or so on won't be like 3.9 (could only install if connected to some devices or a PC). Let us know about future discoveries.

Some news.

We've been shared some logs.
The new HW-W calculators are in fact TI-Nspire CX CR4.

We've also been shared some pictures.
Back of HW-O + HW-W :

Notice a significantly smaller battery door for HW-W.
But this doesn't imply a new battery, as the Samsung one used in HW-O calculators wasn't even taking all the space to begin with :

I sure hope the battery has the same capacity because if it lasts shorter that could be annoying during exams. >.<

I still don't understand why the TI-84 Plus has a clock in the regular OS, but the TI-Nspire doesn't...
I'm just trying to grab some inspiration. :P

Does this qualify as a signature? 
The answer is "Sure."


DJ Omnimaga

The 84+ clock is useless because it resets to 12 AM, Jan 1st 1997 everytime your calculator crashes. The ones who made the 84+CSE/CE OSes probably just decided that getting rid of that feature would just take longer than porting it and they probably didn't implement it on the Nspire in case it reseted on every reboot. The other possibility is that maybe the Nspire was developed by a different team and they didn't think about adding that feature.

The Nspire does have a clock, you just can't access it normally. You need something like nClock
