Hello! I am searching for a passcode locker for my TI 84 Plus CE. Are there any out there? I've checked and I can't seem to find any.

Also, is it possible to make one of these passcode locks for the calculator without using Start Up Customization by TI? I don't know if that is out yet for the CE.

Please help, it would be awesome!

Thanks,

Depends. Do you want to lock up your program or the the calc? Because if its the calc, I'm sure there isn't any for that. As for locking programs you'll have to wait for Doors CE
There's only one that has a released version:

And at the bottom of this first post is some nice code that implements a password program directly. Seems like it was never been assembled though, but it should be a simple matter to throw it into spasm and use it.

Actually, I think there is two.

Although my version of a password seemed good in premise, I had forgotten that our can easily escape an Input( prompt with [2nd] [Mode]. I was going to repair this by replacing the input command with a getKey code checker and store-er, but, since andressevilla had already released a password checker after that model, I decided to leave it be and work on other projects.

If you want a password locker, I recommend his program more than mine (although I appreciate the reference from Mateo): Password Color

I do have an assembly shell that locks programs for you (I am using Cesium. I was going to wait for Doors CSE, but I needed to do this before the end of the school year and Cesium works out great), I just need something that can passcode lock my actual calculator.

I will try the other ones you guys sent me links to. Thanks for that!
I need to make a password for my CE, and I want the program to run on startup. Are there any apps or programs to do this?
If you wanted to have a program run at startup, you'd have to insert it into the boot code, which from what I've heard, is not the easiest thing to do. KermMartian might have a way, though.

That's the same as modifying the OS, and we don't want to do that Smile
You can use a hook to run a specific program whenever an even occurs (like, the cursor blinkers, the homescreen is active ect), and if I'm right, there is something like an ONSCRPT, but I'm not sure how that works, and if you can use it.
ONSCRT only runs after an auto power down or a warm start which is not very suitable in this case. Modifying the OS is preferred way of handling this; because it is a simple matter to uninstall the program if need be. Of course, some people prefer a combination of a raw key hook and OFFSCRPT; I personally do not like this method because someone can simply pull the batteries to get around it.
