This article is a followup to that one. If you’ve been following the Numworks community lately, you might know that I released a jailbreak for Epsilon 16 two days ago. Since the exploit has been patched yesterday evening, here is a write-up on that.
Numworks is a French calculator manufacturer. When it was created in 2017, its main goals were intuitivity, ease of use, and openness. While Epsilon, their firmware, was never really open source, Numworks has been giving absolute freedom to the user to modify the software/firmware on the device, and now they’re taking away that user freedom, while also making the license less permissive.
I recently started working on some personal C++ projects, to finally really get used to it. C++ is a great language, and my projects worked well under GNU/Linux… But then I decided to make everything work under windows (and I regret).
This isn’t the kind of things I generally do on here, but it will be fun. A month ago, I was checking a TrackMania host called Micmost because I needed a TMNF server for a short period and I wasn’t confident enough to set it up myself… First thing I did was to check their security, and…
I love 3D things. I love Numworks. I love the fact that you can run their simulator in your browser, so why not combine all of this into a nice project.
Since I received my first Numworks calculater, in september of this year, I was interested in not simply using it as a calculator, but also as a dev platform. Today’s the big day I start looking at hardware mods for that thing.
Hello and welcome to my new blog. Here I’ll post about my dev-related stuff. Hope you’ll have a good time reading trough it!
