Hi I formatted the card in my A4000 and then copied PS.FI2, DISKBOOT.BIN and the CHDK folder into the root of the card and it worked fine. Pressing play brought up the Firmware update option and thence CHDK.

On my SX700 HS I downloaded the zip file and then all I had was the DISKBOOT.BIN and the CHDK. Is that correct?

I copied them to the card but I can't get it to start with 'Play' and offer the firmware update option. Am I missing something?
Cheers, Steve

Booting CHDK using the Firmware Update method is currently not supported for DIGIC6 cameras  like your SX700.

OK. Please can you explain how I get CHDK running using the available port sx710hs-100a-1.5.0-5001-full_ALPHA.zip?

I'd recommend the STICK or CHIMP utilities linked at the top of that page.

STICK (I'm on Linux) won't find a Dev 1.4 image for my SX700 HS so I guess that is not an option at this stage?

The SX700 is only available from the 1.5 ( or unstable / development branch ).  You can select that withe STICK - I did it just last night.

Or you can manually download the ZIP file from the autobuild server and follow these instructions :

OK thank you that worked with stick (although just for the record it wanted the testxxxx.zip in /home/[username] rather than the same folder as stick.jar) but the error message did point me to that.

The trouble is (and I could just be being dense here) how do I get CHDK to boot up on the camera. It just seems to go into it's normal firmware/OS?
Cheers,

Put your SD card lock switch into the "locked position".

I did try that but the green LED just flashes and the camera doesn't boot. As soon as I take the lock off it starts into standard Canon mode.

What does STICK's "Firmware:" box say after selecting the sx700 jpg file?
I'd guess your cam's firmware is not 100e (which is the only supported version at the moment).

That's what happens when the compatibility check fails.
