SX500 IS Porting thread

I started a blind port for SX500 100c.  SX500IS firmware is similar to SX160IS, I'm using code_gen.

If someone can test, and give feedback, send me a private message, I'll send you the link to the binary file.

Sorry I took so long. I now have this thread on notify. Acid says my Canon Powershot SX 500 is firmware 100c.

 I flash phones all the time, but never a camera. I might have a bit of a learning curve.

I sent you the link.  topsun reported that CHDK boots and test scripts are running without problems. More tests are needed (RAW capture, photo overrides, etc).

Is there any way I could test this as well? I've been desperate to find anything that gives this kind of functionality to this camera.

I'd be willing to test this. Been looking around for someone to port it. PM me. THx

Over and out,

I would love to test it and provide some feedback, I've been waiting for this for a while.

Best regards.

@drixkarasu, Lunheth Moriticus and moholt,

I sent the link to you.  It's only for 100c firmware, check your firmware version using ACID
To load it, it is necessary to use bootable sd card method.

If you have a different version firmware, a new port will be necessary.

Please test and report.  Thanks

I have a canon powershot sx500 is and I extracted the zip into a formated 4gig fat32 sd. i locked the card and then booted up my camera and all I see is card locked. I'm not sure what I did wrong. a little help here?

thanks

What you did wrong it not RTFM.   You probably want to start here :
