A89: Re: AMS 2.05 and ASM

i wouldn't worry about what ams you get, I think they all come from the factory with 1.0, mine did and i got it about 4 months ago...
I do program for the TI-89, and my calc is a HW1 ams2.05; I have not had any problems, with the exception that some programs that were written awhile ago cannot be run on the newer ams version
There is a doors version for testing on ams 2.05 at the doors homepage (doors.ticalc.org). I have it on my calc...
it is possible to 'downgrade' if you have a copy of an older ams on your computer (now where did I put that one backup??)

All parts should go together without forcing. You must remember that the parts you are reassembling were disassembled by you. Therefore, if you can't get them together again, there must be a reason. By all means, do not use a hammer.

Subject: A89: AMS 2.05 and ASM

I have read through the archive of old messages to the list about AMS 2.05 problems with shells and asm programs. I have also read other pages on problems with the new AMS and they said that you couldnt downgrade AMS 2.05 to a lower version if it was released with version 2.05. I just wanted to make sure that this information was wrong and that it does work before I buy a TI89. More than likely the only ones available will be version 2.05 and the reason I'm getting one is so I can program in asm and enjoy the extras that everyone has made for the calculator. Also I read in the list archive that there is supposedly a version of the doors kernel that can run right on 2.05 but does that allow the programs to install and run on it also? Thanks for any help in advance.
