CHDK for IXUS 970IS (SD890IS)

I recently bought the IXUS 970IS (a.k.a. SD890IS) but  I tried all the different firmwares on the site and none of them worked. When is this camera supported by CHDK? The method to see the firmware with ver.req did work and mine is 1.00c.

Help would be appreciated! Also a dump from my camera's firmware is a possibility if nobody has it yet...

Please read the FAQ at the wikia page.

The SD950IS is NOT the same as the IXUS 970IS.

IXUS970IS and SD890IS are equivalent.

IXUS960IS and SD950IS are equivalent.

but that they are equivalent, doesnt mean the firmware does work on them, or does it?
as i tried the 950 frimware on the 960, and it doesn't work

Confused - wikia lists the IXUS 970IS as SD960 AND SD890  :blink:

kappie, can you post your full fw info ?

Marketing names by Canon are
  * Digital IXUS (Europe),
  * Digital IXY (Japan),
  * Digital Powershot SD (US  & Canada),
so the same hardware has 3 different names (e.g. IXUS 860is = Powershot SD 870 = IXY 910is).

For CHDK the hardware must always be the same, the firmware version too - but in some very rare cases a version for a different fw will work (as reported on IXUS 50).

A dump for fw 1.00D is available from tk-germany, no 1.00C yet (not found within search), so you can try to dump your fw (easy with cardtricks) an post it here for further development (see also this post).

As far as I know, there is no SD960. The United States line tops out at at the SD950.

Remember, Wikis are the product of common knowledge and its common for that
knowledge to be wrong.
