AMS 2.09 Semi-Released
Posted by Joey on 20 May 2003, 00:32 GMT

TI has released AMS 2.09 for the TI-89, TI-92+, and Voyage 200. The only catch is that you must download the newest version of TI Connect to get it.

Update: (Joey): AMS 2.09 is now available by itself. Go download it from the TI Online Store.

I asked about the TI-Navigator protocol...

Dear Benjamin Moody:

Thank you for contacting Texas Instruments, an educational technology

Currently, there are no annouced plans to make the AMS 2.09 protocols
available to the public. I have logged your message so the developers
can view your comments and suggestions.

If you have further questions or comments, please feel free to contact
me at your convenience.

Anyone wanna hack it?

...there are no annouced plans to make the AMS 2.09 protocols available to the public...

Gee, that's rather typical of the TI guys, they're "getting friendlier" ...

Possibly if you could intercept the data TI-Connect sends to the [color]-link, it could be hacked...

Isn't that basically what the TiLP team did for their USB driver? I'll be suprised if they think they can keep the protocols from everone. BTW that looks like a computer generated message since it talks about logging it for the developers...it sounds like you just sent in an inquiry to determine if their will be publicity on some TI stuff, why do developers need to go over that?

Re: Re: Anyone wanna hack it?

For the obvious reason that it's the developers who would know about that sort of stuff? :)

Maybe it's not fully supported by them yet

One thing I hated was when you went from TI-Connect 1.1 to 1.2, your tranfer speed was droped down from 4KB/sec to 2 or 3 KB/sec. I really hope that the speed is kicked back up again.

Well, TI Connect 1.2 takes several seconds longer to transfer than 1.0 (which I have on my computer.) I had a friend who had SEVERE problems w/vers. 1.1 (e.g. not being able to actually run it.) So.. I still have TI Connect 1.0.

Well the transfer rate is back up to ~4KB/sec but detection of the calculator is carried out every time you want to link to your calculator. Thats just stupid.

I think they don't want to release the protocol because doing so would allow people to build their own hubs for cheating purposes.

No need, all you have to have is a Radio Link or some other wireless transciever.

Wait, what is the size of a normal TI-89 OS? The AMS 2.09 that I am using currently (which is the one that was included with the new TI-Connect) is 1,209kb. On the TI Online store, that one is 1,208kb. Is there anything different with the one I have and the online store one? Or is mine just virus-infected or something, so it is a kb larger?

No, it's not infected or anything. The same thing happened with me. The page at the TI Store probably hasn't been updated with the new size yet.

I've installed the new OS, and seems to work fine with all the programs I have in my TI-89. I have Gran Tourismo, Space Dementia, Bombermaze, Platinum Edition, Ti-Chess, TICT-Explorer,Ti-Diary and all of them worked properly, so I think there isn't any problem with this new thing.

YES!, (b/c) Most of those are "NoStub", ie. Gran Tourismo, Space Dementia, Platinum Edition, etc.

benjamin huneeus

Hello to all, someone could to say to me that it is what shows the menu of the memory???, because it was showing 128/319Ko rom and then installs one APPS and now it shows 37/255Ko .... someone can explain to me???...and why indicate 256Ko of RAM?????

The OS needs RAM to run. So part of the 256KB chip is used be the OS.

Benchmarks: AMS 2.08 vs. AMS 2.09

Well, I'm doing a benchmark of 2.08 versus 2.09 using my new benchmark software, you'll see the software soon, and it seems that the factory defaults for each are approximatly equal in speed.

What this update does, don't ask me...

It probably does other things, but Deleting variables, including archived ones, is now possible in TI Connect's Device Explorer. This may seem insignificant, but it's probably a necessary change before they can release things like NoteFolio for the 68K calculators.

I've never had a graph link or any way to update my 89's os and i like the 2.03 that's on it so i was wondering if anyone could possibly get me some screen shots(particularly the icons) of the new 2.09. i like the fact that when i turn it on its right at the home screen where i can enter problems and do general math right away. I wopuld really appriciate it if you could send them to gt3lord@yahoo.com.
