    I have a new, beta version available. Now everything should work fine, except:
    Flash override doesn't work.
    The feature where you can make a card bootable, and swap partitions does not work though.
    The file time of the raw/dng files will sometimes be wrong.

    All those things are relatively minor and should not be a big deal.
    Now the bootdisk method is supported as well, so I am attaching a bootdisk too.
    Due to the filesize limits of the attachments on the forum, you will have to download the file in the first post, then download the ps.fi2 and diskboot.bin from this post, and overwrite the old ones.

    I'm a newbie - just purchased the sd980 to try some aerial photography (so I want to use the usb remote trigger).  Tried ver.req and couldn't get the firmware info so I then used card tricks to download RaduP's latest.  Slid the lock on the SD card, put it into the camera, and....nothing.  Thoughts?

    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?

    Hello & welcome, Dabossajk !

    Slid the lock on the SD card, put it into the camera, and....nothing.
    To use the autoboot loading method, the SD card must be CHDK-bootable & the diskboot.bin file must be placed on the card's root.

    To load CHDK manually, just copy the PS.Fi2 file from radup's post to the card's root, power on the camera in playback mode, enter the Canon menu & select "Firmware Update..."

    Note: the "Firmware Update" menu item is not visible in record mode or with the lens expanded.

    Folks,

    I'm up and running with the CHDK on the SD980 thanks to fe50 and RaduP - and now I'm working on getting the USB remote trigger to work.  RaduP have you (or has anyone else) tried that on the 980?  I enabled remote triggering and then selected the simple remote script.  Hooked up 3 AAAs in series to pins 1 & 4 of the mini usb, switched the pack on....and (drumroll) the camera focused but didn't fire. 

    Thanks!

    Strictly, it is pins 1 and 5.
    Anyway, it is the outside pins.
    It is possible that you have them connected the wrong way around.

    Use a USB cable plugged into your PC as the source for +5V.

    That will show if your switch is faulty.

    I tried it with the simple basic script, remote or something like that, and it worked. Can you try it too?

    Well, one thing you could do, if you have some electronic skills, is to try to get the firmware out of the camera..
