How to put diskboot.bin on SD card?

Hi,

I want to know if there is a more elegant way to put the diskboot.bin onto the SD card after making some code changes.
Normally there are following 7 steps to test a change on diskboot.bin on my S110:

1. Compile and get the new diskboot.bin.
2. Switch off camera
3. Open the camera battery slot, remove the SD card,
4. Put the SD card into my iMac then write the diskboot.bin onto the SD card
5. Get the SD card out of my iMac
6. Put the SD card back into my S110
7. Switch on S110 and check if the code changes will work.

Is there a more elegant way? Is there a possibility to use a WiFi-SD card?
I looked for some cards but it seems they are not writeable using WiFi.
For Transcend WiFi SD card I found a hack, but I am not sure if this could help.

How do you overcome this?

I never finished this but it should give you some ideas for using chdkptp :

Also, rudi provide something that works with the Transcend wifi cards over on the CHDK-DE forum. http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=11262.0

With a Transcend WiFi sd card rudis web interface is the best & fastest way to install CHDK.

When you have a Windows environment ptpCamGui is a good choice for an automatic file copy from the CHDK zip file via USB.

Hi ,

thanks waterwingzs and msl.
I will order a Transcend WiFi SD card now and try Ruid's web interface and give it a try.
