Good news / bad news.   The good news is that its a DIGIC4 camera so can be ported to the existing CHDK  platform.   Bad news is that nobody has started.

Finally got my SX170IS. Yay!  :) But firmware dump is different than previously posted 101a one. My PRIMARY.BIN: http://goo.gl/yxH01p
While comparing to alvm fw these strings are common (at identical file offsets):

  796dc Sep 13 2013
  796e8 12:50:47
  796f4 Firmware Version 1.01
  79710 Firmware Ver GM1.01A
...
 7d0000 Ver.009.004
 7d0170 Canon PowerShot SX170 IS
But differences start at decimal offset 7929920 and last till 8303088.
Hopefully they are nonimportant(?)

Have already started to port, it just takes time.

The stuff at the end of every firmware dump for every camera is different. It's where Canon in storing stuff  that changes in the NVRAM.

Great to hear that porting is already in a way. Thanks!

Is it possible to peek into source, so I can look how much work is needed to adapt to ver 101a? I have filled sub/101a/makefile.inc and platform_camera.h to my best understanding, but lots of porting work is ahead. 100a image crashes my camera, gives blank screen on boot.

nafraf usually waits until somebody has tested his ports before placing them into the trunk & autobuild.
