As far as a community calculator is concerned, https://symbolibre.org/ is the only project with such a level of polish.
The schematics of the NumWorks calculators are openly accessible.
I've checked every day to see if TI updated the OS on their site for the TI-84 Plus CE, and still 5.4. I'm still going to stay at 5.4 or even 5.4.1, but never 5.5. Calculator programming is big at my school, so I will be sure to inform other users as well.

PM or email me if 5.5 is released yet.

I have also completely recovered from Coronavirus, so I'm good now. It was a looong two weeks with sitting in my bed and making programs every day.
Whoa man glad you recovered.

There will be a lot of news when the 84+CE version arrives, probably 5.6.
New milestone.

OS 5.5.1 which did remove asm programs support was only for the french TI-83 Premium CE, not the international TI-84 Plus CE.

It's not the expected 5.6 version yet, but now there is OS 5.5.5 for the TI-84 Plus CE and of course it removes asm as well, this time on the last TI calculators still supporting it :

A new major step just began in asm programs annihilation on the CE...



The main new thing is Python programming, but note it's only supported on the new BTS 2020 TI-84 Plus CE-T Python Edition.
The older TI-84 Plus CE-T and TI-84 Plus CE don't have the required Atmel ATSAMD21 chip, you won't get Python by just updating the OS.
So if you still decide to update your TI-84 Plus CE or TI-84 Plus CE-T, then have fun permanently damaging your calculators abilities.
Why is security on a calculator? Apart from safe testing who asked for it. also, students and teachers are prompted to hard reset calculators before using it for tests. There could have been other ways to "remove" Asm applications like OS only removes it on school calculator (yellow and black) based on serial number??. Or it disables asm applications when python is detected on the calculator. 🤦🏿‍♂️

TI Dev team, I am very disappointed in your lazy decision on how to deal with your "Security issue".

This has to be fixed even tho you remove the "Security issue". The calculator then get loads of exploits. And in the end, eventually, TI-Calcs will not be safe for testing. I guess the dev team was thinking about the now and not future. 🤷🏿‍♂️


*emailed to TI-DEV Team *
I've looked on TI's website for OS 5.5, but still 5.4.
OS 5.5.5 (or 5.6) is not yet available on TI's site, but it did ship with critor's 84+CE-T Python Edition. If you really want a copy of 5.5.5, you can find it on TI-Planet: https://tiplanet.org/forum/archives_voir.php?id=2639025.
Or just buy a TI-84+CE-T Python Edition, it's available. Smile
