    I'd hate to be the one who found out they can't. And I wouldn't waste my calculator to find out this answer.

This is your question which I think is the solution for this question!

I downloaded Mirage OS, and now I can't download any of the games. I downloaded tetris before, and then I came back and can't download anything through TI connect.

Obviously, at times ti connect is going to be worthless to you if you have OS Mirage. So, that's correct! Plus, it didn't cost me a calculator to find that out!

For you to get it off? I can think of a few, I glad I don't have too..

    I don't even think the password is relevant, The OS alone will lock you up, and wipe you out. I think I got you on that one.

    It might pass a test, that it could still recover even after it crashed, and had most of the memory available Of course that's with out the password too.

    You can delete RAM with using ti connect, may not be able if Mirage os is all locked up, and your calculator is un responsive. I have always been able to get it of. If it's locked up, and completely is un responsive take out the batteries for 4 hours, worked for me. You really can't ask a question like this because, what will work on my calculator will not work on yours. That's the whole secret behind my question, "how come APPS download there programs to my main".

I need to clear the memory on my TI-83 plus, but when i hit "2nd +" the memory screen does not come up. I have to show my professor the "MEM CLEAR" screen in order to take my exam!!

If you have MirageOS installed under the APPS button on your TI-83 plus, it may be blocking your memory menu. Enter MirageOS and press the ALPHA key. It may ask for a password which will have been set by the user. If so, you will need to enter it in. Go down to the option: Tasker and Key Hooks. There is an option that says: "Block the memory menu from access". Disable this, and you should be able to access the memory menu.

When i press most buttons it gives me the message ERR:MEMORY i cant access memory so i cant reset ram or delete . also i can not connect to my cpu it says TI-84 plus Silver Edition detected, but couldn't...

From the TI knowledge base and FAQ

How do I correct ERR: MEMORY on a TI-83 family or TI-84 Plus family graphing calculator?

An ERR: MEMORY is given when there is not enough memory to perform the instruction or function. To increase available memory by deleting the contents of any variable (real or complex number, list, matrix, Y= variable, program, Apps, AppVars, picture, graph database, or string), follow these steps. • Press [2nd] [MEM] to display the MEMORY menu.
• Press 2: Mem Mgmt/Del.
• Select a variable or data that needs to be deleted and press [ENTER].
• Use the arrow keys to move the cursor next to the item, and then press [DEL]. The variable or data should now be deleted from the memory.
When deleting programs or Apps, a message asking for confirmation will appear. Select 2:Yes to continue. To leave any variable screen without deleting anything, press [2nd] [MODE].
With the exemption of programs and Apps, no warning will be given to verify the deletion.Some system variables, such as the last-answer variable Ans and the statistical variable RegEQ, cannot be deleted.

Hope it helps.

NO English on my TI 84

English is the default language. If someone changed the setting, it must be because he/she used a foreign language locale. Press Apps and look for a foreign language Français, Espagnol, Svenka, Deutch and so on. Execute the one locale that you know a litle bit of. When the application executes it will ask you 1: English, 2: the other language. Press 1:English and you will be back in chartered territory.
If you do not need the other languages, delete those applications: You will have more memory to put some other applications that interest you more.

Hope it helps.

I cannot access my memory

"How can i delete this program without using memory?"

By that I am assuming the memory key on the TI, the only other way to remove applications is through the TI connect software which will require the use of a USB cable in the case of the TI-84.

TI connect will also let you backup anything important you may have on your calc. Good Luck:

Yes i know exactly what that is. This happens when you are in mirage OS and you set that option. What you need to do is take out the batteries when its on or go to mode and press alpha and s (LN) and then it should ask for self check say yes and press enter for like ever. I prefer to take out the batteries Then quickly go to memory and delete the avtar. It should do the trick.
