TI-Connect 4.0 and 84C OS 4.0 released !

In a previous news item, TI-Planet offered information on the latest beta of the new TI-Connect 4.0 linking software, adding support for the 84+ C Silver Edition calculator to the existing TI-Z80 and TI-68k support. Adriweb and Kerm Martian both had an opportunity to try the new software at T^3 2013. The version Adriweb revealed on TI-Planet was version 4.0.0.209. Tonight, the final version, TI-Connect 4.0.0.218 was released. It represents the first update of the TI-Connect software for Windows since 2010! You can now transfer images and install OS upgrades to your 84+ C Silver Edition from Windows with the official software. Of course, the third-party TILP II 1.17 software, which was recently published, already enabled doing it, provided the .8c? files were renamed to .8x?.



One other thing: For a few days already, you were able to download, in exclusivity on TI-Planet, the OS v4.0 for the TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition! Indeed, a little tool by Critor was capable to create installable OS files from a ROM image of the calculator. Like all the Windows versions of TI-Connect, TI-Connect 4.0 comes with a bundle of device-installable OS files, and here with the OS 4.0 for the brand new TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition. After an hexadecimal comparison of the files ignoring the headers, we can see that this OS 4.0's code is 100% identical that the one running on my [critor's?] sample TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition. Consequently, the OS bundled with TI-Connect 4.0 also suffers from all the bugs Cemetech is tracking. The same goes for the 4.0 OS file available on TI's site, which is the same as TI-Connect 4.0's one. Enjoy!
