So, first test:
Prepared 16GB sdcard with  SDM/CHDK installer for Linux 1.07 with root user (under Debian Wheezy) with option copy files from dir...
Sdcard locked
Putting to camera and start with play button, CHDK started, okay, but I can't change lang, can't load user script, don't save file in raw mode (but I checked) ..
What I'm doing wrong?
And pics saved to BOOT partition wich size is 16MB :o
Sorry my english :)
The SDM installer is not suitable for new cameras - it prepared a dual partiton card that your camera does not need and cannot use.   

Use the STICK utility instead
STICK can't download SX500 IS test build... so, I can see only my camera type info from image.. step1-5 not active.

Other methods listed here : http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Prepare_your_SD_card

The EOScard utility will create a FAT32 bootable card for you.

There is also supposed to be a way to trick STICK into loading a custom build but I can't find anything about it right now.

« Reply #42 on: 18 / August / 2013, 11:03:50 »
Now is working...
My steps:
I get a 16GB sdcard..
I get a CHDK package from nafraf ...
I'm downloaded STICK from here: http://zenoshrdlu.com/stick/stick.html
I get a photo wich made with Canon Powershot SX160, you can get it from here:http://sevoir.hu/sx500/sx160.jpg
start STICK with root/administrator rights
browse downloaded SX160 image see before line
Click Download? button for download SX160 CHDK firmware (http://sevoir.hu/sx500/stick1.png), after click Use it? button
Click Scan for Cards? button  (http://sevoir.hu/sx500/stick2.png)
Click continue to Install Step button  (http://sevoir.hu/sx500/stick3.png)
Click Install CHDK button  (http://sevoir.hu/sx500/stick4.png)
Click Eject card button
Click Exit button  (http://sevoir.hu/sx500/stick6.png)
Now, you have a prepared card for SX160, but you need overwrite files with SX500 IS CHDK files.
If overwriting is success, close your SDcard to LOCKED position.
Put in your SX500 camera and use it.

Sorry my bad english :)

A nice "workaround".    8)

When I choose the image, it said "No official build is available for this camera"

Yes it was the permission issue. Need to run STICK as root. Fixed now

Hi! I got a SX500HS camera with 100c. I'd be happy to test the build and give feedback about it. Thanks :)
