No build for Canon Powershot S2 IS?

Hi folks,

I've try to install but got this:
"No official build is available for this camera".

Now, that's fair enough but I have a sneaking suspicion I'm doing something wrong because the camera is not THAT ancient.

Can someone in the know please confirm that I'm out of luck?

Camera is Canon Powershot S2 IS 5MP PC 1130 No. 2428903721.  STICK says it has 100G firmware.

I've tried a couple of cards and several photos.

Cheers!

Well,  there are builds for 3 firmware versions of the S2IS located here :  http://mighty-hoernsche.de/

There is one for the 1.00g as well !

Send a PM to Dave Mitchell a.k.a  zeno ?  He is very responsive and usually straightens things like this out right away.

@Mad Dog
There is not a full dump for S2 IS, It would be useful if you post one.  See this thread: http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=10893.msg106982#msg106982

Camera is Canon Powershot S2 IS 5MP PC 1130 No. 2428903721.  STICK says it has 100G firmware.
Here's a short manual install guide:
Download the "full" zip for your camera+firmware from http://mighty-hoernsche.de/

Extract the contents of the archive to the SD card. If you're using a Mac, see this for possible complications.

Then read the "Firmware update method" section of the CHDK manual to start CHDK.
Enter the CHDK menu using the print/shortcut button. Navigate to "Miscellaneous stuff" -> "SD card" -> "Make Card bootable", then press Set. This will make the card bootable.

To always start CHDK when you switch on the camera, set the SD card's lock switch to the "locked" position.

If making the card bootable doesn't work in camera, you can use http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/EOScard (Windows) or http://www.zenoshrdlu.com/macboot/macboot.html (Mac) to do it on your computer.

Hi Mad Dog

I just checked with a downloaded sample S2 image and STICK and ACID both found a build. There is no build for 100d though (one of the sample images I downloaded was for that camera and STICK reported no build).

If STICK still can't find a build could you set debug on (add the line "debug=yes" to the stick.properties file), run STICK again and then email me the resulting sticklog.txt file (to daveATzenoshrdlu.com).

zeno,
Thanks for the post.
Where would I find this properties file?   It's not among the unzipped files.
Cheers

srsa,
Thanks for all that info.
I've managed to get get CHDK installed OK.
One question though - if you lock the card then how can you take pictures.  Sorry for these dumbass questions but...

CHDK bypasses the switch input that reads the card lock - tricking the camera into thinking the card is actually unlocked.

Hi Mad Dog - glad you got things sorted. Too late to help now, but the stick.properties file is in the same folder as the stick.jar and all the other bits and pieces (bat files, cmd files etc). It's created the first time you run STICK.
