I must first apologize for the endless flow of unanswered requests for updates.
The long awaited Ndless 4.0 is out thanks to the hard work of the team, compatible with OS 4.0.3. It will let you run native programs on the latest TI-Nspires. The installation (and reinstallation on crash/reboot) does not require to be connected to a computer for a smoother experience.
As you may know Ndless tightly integrates with the TI-Nspire OS, and each installer is developed for a specific OS version.
The latest Ndless 3.6/3.9 is not compatible with OS 4.0. Do not upgrade to OS 4.0 at the moment as you won’t able to downgrade and use Ndless! If you want to know more about the OS dowgrade protection and the cat and mouse game between Ndless and TI, read this post.
You should know that updating the Ndless installer is hard work. Please subscribe to new posts to be notified once its ready. No ETA can be given, sorry for the annoyance if you were wrongly adviced to update by Student Software (and blame TI for it).
The Ndless Team devotes itself to open your TI-Nspire to the greatest community programs, OS update after OS update since 2009. We have once again reopened the door for OS versions 3.9.0 and 3.9.1. TI-Nspires sold with pre-built OS 3.9.1 (HW-S) can now enjoy the sweet taste.
If you already have Ndless 3.6 for OS 3.6 installed, stick to it as OS 3.9 doesn’t offer much interesting, and Ndless 3.9 re-installation after reboot is computer-dependent.
Ndless is currently not compatible with OS 3.9. OS 3.9 has (once again) a downgrade protection that blocks downgrade to OS 3.6, do not upgrade to OS 3.9.
Unfortunately nothing can be announced for the moment about any upcoming Ndless update. Just stick to OS 3.6.
New users who just bought a TI-Nspire with OS 3.9 pre-installed will have to wait a bit for a solution (and there’s have always been one since 2010). Sorry for the delay, you can subscribe to this blog to be notified.
Setting up the GCC cross-compilation toolchain to make your own Ndless C/C++ programs on Linux is easy thanks to the build_toolchain.sh script of the Ndless SDK, but a bit long as everything needs to be built from scratch.
We’re now introducing the Ndless SDK Docker image. Docker is a platform to build and share applications through lightweight containers. The Ndless SDK Docker image packs the Ndless SDK and all its dependencies.
First make sure to update your Linux box to the latest version of Docker. Then run the two commands:
