Another note: you should not need bin_comp_fix.h except for cases like the sx280/sx270 where multiple PIDs use the same port.

You will need to make compat-table after adding ports and setting up the platform makefile.inc values
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Installing the wrong G16 firmware version causes the camera to "hang" with a slowly blinking green LED as expected.

But if I delete bin_comp_fix.h & bin_compat.h, rebuild, and again install the wrong firmware version (i.e. 1.00h instead of 1.01c) then I no longer get the blinking green light.   The generated file is :
Code: [Select]
/* THIS FILE IS GENERATED, DO NOT EDIT! */                                                             

ver_sig_t ver_sigs[]={
    {(const char *)0xfc158a45, "GM1.00H"},
};
pid_sig_t pid_sigs[]={
};

vs my version :                                                       
Code: [Select]
#define DEBUG_DELAY 10000000   
ver_sig_t ver_sigs[]={
    {(const char *)0xfc158a45 , "GM1.00H"},  // substring of *"Firmware Ver GM1.00H" string in ROM
};
pid_sig_t pid_sigs[]={
    {(short *)0xfdf20040, PLATFORMID}, // g16 (0x3274 = 12916) near PRODUCT_ID and then Ver.006.015 gives 0xfdf20000 + 0x40
};

I must have done that at some point - a g16 entry is added by my rolling patch file.

If PID is not found in stubs (which finsig_thumb2 current doesn't) the address should be set in a comment in makefile.inc, like on g7x

Code: [Select]
# next line is for the compatibility check, as comment
# PLATFORMID @ 0xfff20040
Note 0xfdf20040 and 0xfff20040 both likely work because ROM address space is mirrored, but the fff... version is preferred because reading it on a different camera is less likely to fail.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Got it sorted now - thanks again. Another interesting journey into the bowels of CHDK.
