Title: Need Help with A620 Firmware upgrade !
Post by: KevinCharsi on 07 / October / 2012, 21:40:51
Ahoy Maydeis !  :D

Well, this is my first post on CHDK forums and i am pretty sure that it is in the wrong section and.... please forgive me . TY !

So,i recently discovered this CHDK thing and wanted to try it to my old Canon Powershot A620. Tried the procedure yesterday but failed. Why ? My camera's firmware is 1.00E while CHDK requires 1.00F. So, tried searching on internet but only found some dead links or removed rapidshare file links. I ..... just want things to go right. Please, for the sake of God Almighty, can anyone share the 1.00F version of A620  (Sorry for being emotional but what else you can do after wasting 2 hours for ,LIKE, Nothing ?).

Thankyou very much every one and i am sure that i will have good time with CHDK buddies.
Have a nice day !

Oh,  and plan to "waste" a lot more than 2 hours once you start playing with and learning about CHDK.

Oh thank you very much sir. You really solved my problem :D And i feel that you are right about " plan to "waste" a lot more than 2 hours" thing because this thing is kinda complex and will need hell of a time to understand :)

Thank you very much again , sir :)
