Nclock. I have TI nspire HW-B. I hacked it to run cas on it. I wanted to install nclock and use it on the startup. But my nspire just loop restarting. I have OS 4.4.0.538 patched with cas patcher.

Sorry, the mini clock isn't compatible with OS versions 4 and above.

ControlX
has just been updated to version
5.0.3
with support for both
OS 4.5.3
and
Ndless 4.5.3
:
archives_voir.php?id=652778

So if you still own a compatible
TI-Nspire CX
(revision
W
from
2015 October
and older)
, you can now auto-install
Ndless
on each reboot with the latest
CX OS
version
(the
4.5.3
update being mandatory for some exams)
.

Due to the limitation with the payload size, I had to disable support for some of the oldest OS versions again :
3.2.3
,
3.2.4
and
3.9.0.461
.
If you're still using these versions and don't want to update for some reason, then you'll have to modify the
Makefile
and rebuild
ControlX
.

Great work! I can confirm that nBoot + ControlX is working on my TI-Nspire CX with OS 4.5.3.14 (P-0515V), along with Ndless auto-install, which I am very grateful for (nSonic is a life saver).

However, I must have messed up by accidentally installing OS 4.5.0 or 4.5.3 without ControlX enabled (to patch out Boot2 install), or something beyond that, as ControlX won't automatically boot the OS 4.4.0 Boot2 I have stored in ExtenD; rather, it automatically tries to boot the OS 4.5.0 Boot2 stored in Boot2, which it can't patch for obvious reasons.
I have to manually load the former by holding [ctrl] on boot, selecting [4], and selecting [1]. Any ideas on how to fix this? I was thinking of flashing the OS 4.4.0 Boot2 to my calculator's Boot2 partition manually, but I don't think pairing it with a OS 4.5.0 Boot1.5 would be a good idea.
I can provide pictures of BtMg later, if need be.

Here's a screenshot of BtMg:

Note that I manually flashed the BOOT2 in EXTND to 4.4.0; it was originally 4.0.3 (as the guide (mistakenly?) links), but I figured I should update it to sate my constant need to be on the bleeding edge. Maybe that's part of the problem? Although ControlX boots fine with it anyway...

Hi.

For now I don't understand why ControlX doesn't automatically find the better Boot2 4.4.
I don't have such issue here with the latest version, but I'll be sure to check with different calculators and with your setup, thanks for sharing the picture.

For the moment, how about setting
Boot2 4.4
as your default boot image ?
  1. hold :nsct: during a reset to access the
    ControlX
    boot menu
  2. type :ns4: to access your
    ExtendeD
    partition
  3. hold :nsct: and press :ns1: to set the 1st image in your
    ExtendeD
    partition
    (
    Boot2 4.4
    )
    as your default boot image
  4. type :ns0: to reboot


If it doesn't work, please share a picture of your ControlX boot menu.
And currently, are you running a CAS or non-CAS OS ? Thanks.

That works, thanks! I was trying to get that setup before, but didn't realize that you had to type [4] before [ctrl] to boot an image in ExtendeD by default. I was typing [ctrl] -> [4] -> [1], which ultimately set default = {1}.
I'm using a non-CAS OS, v4.5.3.14.
