1st point
When using the latest version of the TI-89 or TI-titanium operating systems, it will be necessary to clear the full memory before installing your starpilot program, either as a first install or as an update.

This is stated in some sets of instructions but not all.


[2nd] [Mem] [F1] [3] [Enter]

then proceed to install the program.

2nd point
For the new titanium models, if you are seeing the graphic screen of various icons, then scroll to Home and select it to get to the basic TI interface: a row of boxes at the top, blank screen, with a narrow line of input text form at the bottom.

3rd point
If you are doing an update, after you start the restore process it will tell you that the file "hw3patch" is still there. Just choose "Skip" and go on. (This last point is not in manual nor install instructions.)
