Brilliant program. Got it working on my fourth try. For those of you with firmware 2.1, make sure you downgrade to 1.7 with nleash. Not sure if there is an option for 3.0 users as of now.

Ndless is, without a doubt, one of the most revolutionary calculator tools written. It unlocks the Nspire to third-party programs, allowing for the abilities of the Nspire (which are far greater than those of any TI calculator previously created) to be fully exploited.

As an end user of Ndless, you will enjoy the ability to run quality applications, such as calc84maniac's gbc4nspire Gameboy Color emulator. As a developer, you will enjoy the ability to write programs in C and assembly for the most powerful TI platform ever created.

Now, the drawbacks. No program is perfect, and Ndless has its quirks. The most annoying one is the Power Management Bug, which causes LCD to not initialize upon power-on on newer Nspires. Thankfully, a patch is available.

The fact that Ndless requires OS 1.1 may also present a problem for some users, as OS 1.1 is not compatible with current .tns documents and BASIC programs.

Overall, Ndless receives a 10/10. The tool itself is bug-free; indeed, all drawbacks are related to the requirement of OS 1.1. This program is a must-have for any Nspire owner. Try it - you won't regret it.

This is the greatest Nspire revolution there is or ever will be. After years of having almost no programming capabilities whatsoever, Ndless opens the Nspire to programmers. Using the Nspire's great amounts of resources, people can not run incredible programs on it, such as the Gameboy Color Emulator, the "sequel" to TI-Boy 84. Although Ndless does not come with any useful programs itself, it will be necessary in order to run any that you want to put on your Nspire. It does come with a demo program, as shown in the video above.

Ndless may take a few tries to install. I had to re-install my operating system once, but I got it on the third try. I have heard that this version of Ndless is only compatible with TI-Nspire connection software v1.3 and TI Nspire OS v1.1. I have not tested it with any other versions of the OS to see if they work or not.

I attempted it once with software 1.3 and failed. I attempted it again with 1.4 and failed. I re-installed OS 1.1 and downgraded my software to 1.3 and this time succeeded.

In short, this is the greatest program that you will find for the Nspire.

Great exploit!

Added Functionality: 11/10

Removed Functionality: 2/10

Total Functionality: 9/10

Removed Functionality includes no using newer os documents because they are encrypted, no using basic programs in the old os (1.1) used, no turning off and then back on without pulling out batteries, all related to os 1.1

Do not expect to be able to use documents from before or basic programs anymore, but you can play gb(c) games :) !
