Err:Validation for MirageOS

I tried putting MirageOS on a downloaded ROM for the TI84+SE 2.43. When I go to run it, it starts to defragment but then it says ERR:VALIDATION.

EDIT: Same with Celtic III and TI's periodic table app.

Did you create a rom using wabbitemu's open source boot page option? If so you'll probably need to do so again with the latest version. I found there was a part of it that was not yet coded that was required by the OS to run apps on the the 84s. You can do so by going help->rerun setup wizard and overwriting your old rom file. If you're using a real rom can i get the boot code number? You can find it by pressing mode alpha+s

Well, as you know from Omni, I did use the open source boot page and I got that error. I just made a ROM from rom8x, however, and it won't even install the OS. Here's what I get:

 error (If the picture doesn't show up, here it is)

Boot code 1.02, base code 2.43.

I reran the setup using the latest version, and apps now work, however the error with my "real" ROM still persists.

Once you got your two boot page appvars what did you do? Also did you try sending an OS to wabbitemu then doing a Debug->reset? Its possible you didn't include the OS upgrade when creating your ROM

When I got them I opened up the command prompt, went to my rom8x directory, and entered "rom8x 84PBE -1 D84PBE1.8xv -2 D84PBE2.8xv" (just now). I've also tried many other variations but they all got the same result. The ROM itself is exactly 1MB in size, but the ROMs from open-source software are 2MB. rom8x also seems to think that I'm making an 83+ ROM.

IIRC rom8x also takes an OS file which you are missing. Did you try dragging the OS file onto the screen and resetting the calc as I suggested before? You can also try using rom8x via wabbitemu startup wizard. Select the option to create a ROM from your calculator and ignore the step about sending the file to your calculator. When you created an open source did you select 84P or 84PSE? Its possible I don't create the ROM size possible but I didn't think so

The only 2.43OS I've found is TI's one for Singapore, so I tried sending that to Wabbit and the apps work fine (they worked when I updated Wabbit, too). I used that OS to make the ROM, too, and that's works now as well.

TI84+/SE ROMs from open-source now both work with apps, too.
