Today is released the brand new version of Ndless, now compatible with the latest Nspire OS to date: 4.0.3 ! :)


For those who are not aware, Ndless is the "jailbreak" of the TI-Nspire, which allows you to run programs much more powerful than what TI normally allows (Basic, Lua), as they can be written in C/C++/ASM ("native" programming).

You can now enjoy your favorite Ndless programs on your Nspire CX or CX CAS.
For instance (in reverse order of release/update):

Legimet

And this time, re-installation after a reboot doesn't require a computer as it did in Ndless 3.9! :)

Great job guys, I'm sticking with os 3.1 though. :P

Ndless 4.0.3 support OS 3.1, just keep your installer.

DJ Omnimaga

w00t! Good job. I also like that it doesn't require a computer, so CW Walrii contest is now open to OS 4.0.x entries too . :)

Yup, as usual. I use Nlaunchy for that.

Wooo Hooo!!!! I am on Ndless 3.6 should I upgrade since 4.0.3 adds some new features??? or should I stick with 3.6...

DJ Omnimaga

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? <_<

lol, well fortunately my calc doesn't come with that(although imagine they actually put wireless recievers, but only ones that recieve oses). I shall now commence the upgrade!(I hope it works).
Edit: It worked!

Yeah, the only space issue I have is it takes 8+ seconds to open the files xD, and any tests I will use a clac on I will use my Prime since it is super powerful and as fast as )(#)$(*&# :P (Also 64 bits of calculation goodness ^.^)

DJ Omnimaga

That would be nasty, especially if it downloaded OSes from a free network without the user's consent then once done downloading successfully it tried installing as soon as ideal conditions (eg full battery) are met. It reminds me back when updating Nspire Student Software caused your automatic upgrade options to be enabled again after you disabled them, so people would inadvertently upgrade their Nspire as soon as they connected it to their computer while TINSS was open. After multiple incidents, someone on Omnimaga posted a trick to block connections to/from TI or something, which you had to put in your hosts file IIRC.

I have a bit of concerns about the space that OS 4.0 takes, because it doesn't even fit on a clickpad/touchpad, which means it's well over 32 MB.

Open or list ?

The Nspire file browser is very slow if you have lots of files.

DJ Omnimaga

Yeah I saw that. I did not notice any speed drop between 3.1 and 3.6, though. Are there any in newer OSes?

Also how is battery usage with OS 4.0.3?

semiprocoder

NVM.

Also, do all apps work with the new ndless(is it fully backwards compatible)?

For now, all recent apps (3.6/3.9) we've tested are working except nClock.
