How to Upgrade to TI-nspire OS 3.2

By Tech Powered Dad | June 29, 2012

I’m back from my Honduras trip, and hard at work looking at TI-Nspire OS 3.2. My first eBook on the TI-Nspire is nearing completion, and I have completely updated it to be consistent with 3.2, from button press sequence to screen captures.

I have heard from some of you that you are having trouble updating to OS 3.2. I have had a video on YouTube for the last couple of years on how to update the Nspire OS, but the process has changed a little bit over that time. Now seemed like as good a time as any to do a new video, so you’ll find an up to date video below.

The biggest thing to keep in mind is that if you are not already running OS 3.0 or higher, the upgrade process is incremental. Nspires on versions between 1.4 and 2.1 need to upgrade to 3.1 before making the move to 3.2. And if you buy a dinosaur off of eBay that is still running 1.3 or below, you’ll need to upgrade to 1.7, then to 3.1, and then to 3.2. Ugh. The good news is that if you have a TI-Nspire CX, you’re already on at least 3.0, so you can do the upgrade in a single step. More information on all of this, including the official directions on how to upgrade, can be found at the TI education site.

STEM careers are the future. Will you be ready?
