ELPH 340 (IXUS 265)

I just bought an ELPH 340 (IXUS 265) because I like the features (NFC, WiFi) and hoped that a CHDK existed or would be available soon. I don't find a current port or beta version. WILL THE CHDK FOR THE ELPH 330 WORK? Thanks for any help before I waste my time trying.

NO, it will not. These models are completely different.

I have attempted to start a blind port, for the ELPH 340 (IXUS 265-100a)

 Using revision 3462+, for Ixus265_elph340 using the Ixus265_elph340-100a dump and ixus255_elph330hs as a reference port.

I started yesterday, on boot.c  and I also edited some easy stuff.

1/ Is the Pid/Vid value known for the Ixus265_elph340.

2/ So far I have found about 20 Valid firmware offsets.

3/ Are there any alternative camera suggestions for the reference port.

4/ The ixus255_elph330hs seems to be a good, but not perfect, match.

5/ Any other suggestions for DIGIC 4+ and release 54 based cameras.

Please use the sigfinder (finsig_dryos), it should find most of the needed stubs. It will be less successful on stuff belonging to stubs_min.S, but that's still more than nothing. It will also find the P-ID.
Place the camera's PRIMARY.BIN to platform/ixus265_elph340/sub/100a, then re-run the build.

The SX510 is the latest DryOS r52 camera, some of its code might be closer to the Ixus265_elph340 than the ixus255's.

Your ROMBASEADDR is probably wrong, or the firmware dump is incomplete.

If you copy the SX510 port and rename it ixus265_elph340 then a lot of the files you need will already be there.  To get the find_sig stuff to work, you might have to edit the ROMBASEADDR in makefile.inc in the 100a directory. Other edits can follow.

Well, I messed up that dump. The sigfinder needs the bootloader area which is stripped from the dump.
You can download the whole 16MB dump from http://ul.to/un00588u (link is from here: http://forum.chdk-treff.de/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=3310#p29239 ), then erase the first 64kB from it. The new start address is 0xff010000, the dump will now start with the bootloader, and the sigfinder will accept it.
