    hey that was a quick reply - thanks for the input.

    I read that S5IS has firmware version GM1.00b  (some units I heard has GM.100A).   But SX10 uses DIGIC 4 (vs S5IS'  DIGIC 3) so it seems like there would be lots of work for this CHDK version.  Too bad I dont code assembler nor C (does Cobol count? j/k!!)

    The firmware version numbers don't indicate similarity across camera models as far as I know. That is, GM1.00b on one model isn't necessarily related to GM1.00b on another.

    Each model/firmware rev requires it's own CHDK port (except in some rare cases where different firmware revisions of a given model are minor enough that they don't require a new CHDK version)

    Some models are more closely related to each other than others, both due to hardware similarity or software re-use, but the version string doesn't tell you this.
    Don't forget what the H stands for.

    @Gran Canaria

    If you're on Windows, try CardTricks (link in my signature)
    use the 'NewDryOS' option, this has worked for me on ixus870_sd880,
    which is also DIGIC 4.

    the screen blinked on for a moment and went dark, so I waited 1 min, opened the batterie door and took out the card as instructed.
    ok, did that, the file is 16,385k big.
    did strings and clean
    now it is 4,089k
    here it is:

    2nd SX10 dump
    « Reply #17 on: 19 / November / 2008, 05:36:28 »
    I used the newest cardtrick 1.41 to see if there is a difference.
    no screen flickers on
    the dump is 10,176k
    the cleaning cleans just the leading 00
    the PRIMARY_cam-firm.bin is 8,127k

    so here is that SX10 dump also

    It looks like GM1.01A is for PAL version. Mine is "NT"sc


    Mine shows

    Canon Poweshot SX10 IS
    P-ID:318-D NT D


    Firnware  Ver GM1.00C
    No Error
    Sep 14 2008 14:57:56


    when I hit Func set + Disp (clicking Disp twice) it shows:

    Adj Ver: 019.007


    when I click DISP yet again while holding down the Func Set button:


    Total Shoot: xxx
    Zoom Retry Count: 0
    Mecha Condition: 0X0000000


    Am still figuring how to capture the dump
