    Update
    Please download it again, I replaced the attachment with the new version.
    Here are the changes:
    1. No more crashes when switching to video mode, or from playback to record modes.
    2. Now you can set the ND filter override.
    3. Focus distance override also works.
    4. Histogram in playmode too.

    Update
    Please download the file again.
    Changes:
    You can now zoom in movies. However, the other movie parameters do not work.
    Fixed some script bugs, such as the scripting console not working.
    Now you can execute the badpixel script. You must move it from the lua directory to the script directory though, for now you can't enter subdirectories.
    Usb remote works now, as tested with the remote script.

    Thanks very much! Starting to look better and better.  Appreciate all the effort. I think the SD980 has lots of potential to be unlocked.

    Hi, I tried this on my camera I've got few days ago. When I start the Firmware Update it says: " Update firmware version? 1.0.1.0 -> 1.0.0.0". After starting the update with "Ok" the screen stays black for ever and nothing happens. Only removing the battery helps.

    So I guess I have a firmware version not compatible with this CHDK release? Or could this be another problem too?

    Use vers.req to find out what firmware version your camera has. See  http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/FAQ#Q._How_can_I_get_the_original_firmware_version_number_of_my_camera.3F

    edit:
    Radups version is made for 1.00C

    edit x2:
    You can probably also get the firmware version number (but not letter AFAIK) from the exif of an image taken with the camera.

    Don't forget what the H stands for.

    >exiftool IMG_NNNN.jpg -MakerNotes:FirmwareRevision
    Firmware Revision               : 1.01 rev 2.00

    this means 1.01B (second number is 1.00=A, 2.00=B, 3.00=C etc.).

    The ver.req method seems not to work with the SD980 (actually I have a IXUS 200 IS but it's the same). I also tried vers.req and different combinations of buttons, but no result.

    Anyway, exiftool says "1.01 rev 3.00" so I have 1.01 C which is different to 1.00 C.

    How can I help to get it running on my firmware version too? First step would be to dump my version I guess. Are there any chances to get a dump without blinking?

    Yes, you can probably make a modified udumper based on the 100C dump.

    If you have programming skills and some very little electronics skills, you should be able to get the firmware. Let me know and I will give you the instructions.
