wp34s Gallery - Marcus von Cube, Germany - 04-13-2011

I'd like you to post photos or links to videos with wp34s in action here. I expect a lot of fun from this thread.

Let's start early! My first attempts at implementing the emulator weren't really working well:

Here is the very first photo I took of my 20b in action. It was the initial boot of the very first flash image downloaded to my development 20b:

The keyboard was still unresponsive and as you can see, there was a problem with the proper display of zero. ;)

Compare this to my second picture:

What a difference!

I have made some pictures from my opened 20b when I added the JTAG connector and the power cord. I'll post them later.

Without knowing what others were doing for overlays, I constructed mine by printing the emulator skin to size, and taping it to my 30B:

I also posted a video (amateur quality) of the WP34S/30B a few days ago:

Be assured you where first. :)

Can you convert the link to something clickable by surrounding it with [url: your link ] (without the spaces)?

Thanks, and Done!

Here's my unit with the overlay. An admittedly rather poor job of using the Xacto knife, but it works!




Re: wp34s Gallery - Gene's pictures - Walter B - 04-13-2011

Gene, now we know why it's called Xacto ;-)

BTW, did you receive my mail?


Re: wp34s Gallery - Gene's pictures - Gene Wright - 04-13-2011

Yes, and responded!

Nothing found here, please try again.

How did the ROM get loaded into the calculator? Am I correct to assume that the calculator had to be taken apart for the ROM to be downloaded.


Re: wp34s Gallery - Gene's pictures - Marcus von Cube, Germany - 04-13-2011

Flashing the 20b is perfectly described in Tim's document here. No taking apart necessary. :) In fact that wouldn't even help because the flash ROM is inside the main chip and is only accessible through either special hardware or, even easier, through the built in SAM-BA boot loader software.

I'd like to see more pictures and less discussion in this thread, agreed?


Re: wp34s Gallery - Jake Schwartz - 04-13-2011

I just flashed the 20b this evening. The overlay was done this morning. During the cutting of the key holes with Exacto knife and ruler, I realized that "the index finger never forgets" (See PPC Journal Volume 7 Number 4 Page 4 [May, 1980] under the "Club Projects" column).
