I have used CHDK on an a630 enough to know I would like to run it on my sx500. I see you are testing for firmware 100c.  My firmware version is 100d.
Can I participate in testing?
Thanks

To start the port it is necessary to have sx500 100d firmware dump.  Could you do it?

Instructions on card preparation are here: http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Canon_Basic/Card_Setup
Script dumper is here: http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Canon_Basic/Scripts/Dumper
Thanks

I`ll send you a new version. I'm testing some things, that explains the messages that you are seeing in the previous version.

Thanx!

I'm delighted, now I have RAW files for first time. So far everything is working well.

Hello!

I've just brought a second hand SX500 so I am very excited to see how this is coming along. Crossing my fingers that an official release will be ready before I jet set off to South East Asia in December!

Uhhh I can follow directions but these instructions seem to assume I know things that I do not. I am getting that I need to put a file on my SD card to extract this info but how and what I can't seem to follow.
I have downloaded the HxD editor but have no idea where to go from there.

Never mind, another user posted the firmware dump here
I'll send you the file for test soon.

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
