    I've uploaded the latest 1.00c source at http://drop.io/CHDK_GM100c

    Once I've gotten the OSD problem fixed I'll upload a compiled test version for people to beat on.

    Found it! I had screwed up on the location of GetDrive_FreeClusters

    I'm working on getting a build up ASAP with the cleaned up code too.

    Here is the beta relase for GM1.00c:

    CHDK Full: http://drop.io/CHDK_GM100c/asset/sx10-100c-0-9-8-full-zip
    CHDK lite: http://drop.io/CHDK_GM100c/asset/sx10-100c-0-9-8-zip

    Source: http://drop.io/CHDK_GM100c/asset/100c-20090702-beta-zip
    I've included a patch file in the source zip for the 780 trunk main Makefile if you want have it show up in the list of firmwares for the SX10 using CHDKshell.

    For those who want to test, I'd recommend downloading the full version, at least for the very first time. I've been testing this on my 1.00c camera and it seems to be fully functional. Let me know of any bugs you find.

    Thanks!

    Updates:
    This includes the fix for the set_zoom_speed bug.

    Thanks for the answer Fe50. in fact I try with a 4GB and every thing is working.

    So my new question is : how can it work on a 32GB ? I try this (found on the user guide) :

    1)This option creates a 2 MB FAT partition on the card, that's fixed on the code for now. You need to
    copy the CHDK firmware extensions to this partition and load them.
    step one works.

    2)Then select "make card bootable"
    in "Miscellaneous stuff", so it does not complain when you write-protect the card.
    Next step is to select "swap partitions" on "Miscellaneous stuff", this will hide this small partition and
    make the big FAT32 one visible.
    step 2 woks but if I try the card again sx10 doesn't offer firmware update neither autoload boot (with card locked). so 2mb is no more visible. may I format the second partition with the camera or with the cardtricks ??

    3) We need to format it, and copy CHKD firmware extensions to it too,
    so we can perform "swap partitions" again. So format it in FAT32, copy CHDK, insert it on the camera
    ad load CHDK. Select "swap partitions" and "make card bootable", write-protect (lock) the card and
    power-cycle the camera.
    this step doesn't work because when all it's done formated in fat32 it's not bootable and firmware update not available too...

    4)It should now load CHDK from the small 2 MB partition, but have access to the big FAT32 partition
    did not reach to this step

    It doesn't work for me or I'm doing something wrong !
    Thanks again for being so patient and for doing such a great job guys.
    good night

    I'm using the 1.02b Beta build, and i have one more or less serious problem:
    The camera doesn't switch on correctly every time. Sometimes the screen (and the seeker) just stay black.
    I have the exact same problem with same 1.02b build 778, updated to 780, and it didn't fail yet (but only tested a few times)

    So my new question is : how can it work on a 32GB ? I try this (found on the user guide)
    - From the CHDK menu, call Miscellaneous stuff -> Debug parameters -> Create card with two partitions
    - Remove the card, use a card reader, format it, now you can access the first (2MB FAT12) partition
    - Copy the files DISKBOOT.BIN and PS.FI2 to the root (or unzip the whole CHDK package)
    - Now make the card bootable - this can be done either on a PC using a card reader (e.g. with Cardtricks) or
      with CHDK (start manually, then call "Make card bootable..." from the "Miscellaneous stuff " menu)
    - Lock the card, CHDK should autoboot now - you can also start CHDK manually again...
    - Call "Swap partitions" from the "Miscellaneous stuff" - "Debug parameters" menu
      Now the "big" partition is the first one an can be accessed...
    - Format this partition using a card reader (NOT in the camera !), unzip CHDK to the card
    - Start CHDK manually, then swap the partitions back.

    MS Windows can only handle the first partition of such a SD card, use CHDK to swap the partitions...see also this post.
    If you still have problems, please post in the "General Help and Assistance on using CHDK stable releases" section...
