I was wondering if there are any ways to preserve all your programs and applications (and everything else that would be affected by the clear all memory function) when your professors make you clear your calculator's memory before taking an exam. It's not that I want to cheat with my prior-made programs or anything, I just don't want to lose all my applications and hard-worked programs every time I have to take an exam. Are there any tricks built in on the calculator that allow you to make it seem like you wiped your calculator's memory when in fact, you didn't?
This only works for clearing the RAM only, not all memory.
You can group all of the things in your RAM and then ungroup them later:
[2nd]>[MEM]>>[Enter]>Enter a name for the group>[Enter]>[Enter]
After the ram is cleared, you can ungroup the group with Overwrite All and it will restore your calculator to how it was before.
If you are required to clear All Memory, you will have to make a backup on the computer with TI-Connect.
I believe there are some programs available that make it seem like you cleared the memory. There is an app here that works for calculators with older operating systems: http://www.brandonw.net/calculators/fake/
You must have a strict professor…. I know that there are some ways to save applications, I'm just not exactly sure how. Perhaps Xeda could do a better job explaining it but, here goes.
The app, "Finance" is part of the operating system, since it is written in such a way that the calculator requires a full page (about 36,000 bytes) for the app, if you trick the calculator iinto thinking it is one page and one line long, the calculator automatically puts that one line on a new page, rendering the rest of it useless space. By putting a group of programs, a small application or other data on this empty space, you could edit the App to hve an option to restore these. It would then ungroup the programs to your RAM. Since it is now technically part of the Finance app, it will be considered part of the OS and not deleted during a reset, or a clear all memory.
‼️‼️this was talked about on another forum. I have never done it. There are a select few such as Xeda, burr, and other extreme karma members who MIGHT be able to help you. It is risky and there is no garuntee that it will work. It may crash your OS in which case you would hve to re download it using ti-connect to fix your calculator‼️‼️
Edit: batlib might work too. You'd have to ask Xeda

-Vie la vie que la vie est bonne -quod est bonum vitae in vita
-lebe das Leben, weil das Leben ist gut -vivere la vita, perché la vita è buona
These wouldn't really work. The Finance App isn't an actual app like the rest. Normal Apps require a multiple of 16384 bytes, but the Finance "app" is just a built in tool to the OS that needed it's own menu without wasting a key (they could have had a "Solver App" too, but they put access to that in the Math menu).
Anyways, there isn't any extra room of which to speak like you would have in a normal app. However, OSes require a multiple of 65536 bytes (4 pages, or 1 sector of Flash memory). TI's MathPrint (MP) OSes only overflow onto a second sector by a little bit leaving a bunch of extra space available— I believe enough to fit a whole app in there. I believe this has been used before by certain community members, but I've never ventured to do so.
The easiest and least risky way is to just back up your programs on a computer.
47%? Take a look and try to imagine how cool 100% will be. This has won zContest 2011 and made news on TICalc. This compromise between Assembly and BASIC parses like BASIC and is fast like assembly. Grammer 2
Two things come to mind. One, you can use ti-connect to back up all of your files onto the computer before your professor deletes them. Or two, the answer you might be looking for, a program that can fake the process. I created one a while back that uses the RecallPic command to recall a picture of the memory screen. At this point it is asking you if you're sure you want to erase all memory and the cursor is already highlighted over the "yes" command. From there, a getkey command is used waiting for you to press Enter or '2' (which is alternatively the yes selection). Once pressed it clears home and outputs a screen saying 'Resetting All…" for 6 seconds. After that, it draws on the graph screen the whole 'Mem cleared' page, which i found text( coordinates to on this forum. Have fun! Hoped this helped.
