I can't test this right now, but here's a couple of my old patches attached (trunk 760 and 714, may not apply cleanly to current trunk) that could be helpful for someone... one has *powertype stubs for all cams from back then (I think SDM has these nowadays too for mode switching), one has debug funcs for *powertype and *ui added to lua along with vxworks memfree osd stuff.

If my memory serves, back then I concluded that *PowerType worked perfectly for a lot of things with the a570 while *UI was more or useless.

I'd appreciate hearing if this method does or does not work on other cameras.

I can try this with my A620.

Remember, I do not use CHDK or Lua and I have never even had to apply patches.
I am using the old Windows 'ready-to-use'  environment.

Please give more specific instructions.

I'll have something more coherent tomorrow, I'll post an a620 build (and any others requested) with the required scripts when that's done. Ended up spending quite a bit of time hacking together tools to harvest the required information from all the dumps.

reporting for duty  :D on A630, A590, ixus870/SD880 and
ixus70/SD1000 (not sure if applicable on that though, neither mode dial nor play button)

I will gladly participate with the ancient Ixus950/SD850 1.00C (mode/jog dial, no play button), would it be of any use to anybody...
Just in case, I attach the event codes, as found in the FW of this camera.

FWIW, I made a tool that finds and extracts the event table from firmware dumps, so I have that for every camera now.

Interesting is also SetCurrentCaptureModeType(int mode)  function, which allow set any capturing mode (for example, any scene or video mode). Argument is new value of SHOOTING_MODE property case (i.e 32768=AUTO, 32769=M etc.)

Does this work for any dial mode position ? If so, this is much better than messing with events.
