I'd guess your cam's firmware is not 100e (which is the only supported version at the moment)...

I did try that but the green LED just flashes and the camera doesn't boot.

That's what happens when the compatibility check fails.

Yup, that'll be it. 100d - one letter off! - can you flash a Canon up a level?
EDIT: I contacted Canon to ask!

You generally cannot upgrade the firmware unless Canon issued a public firmware update, which they generally only do in the case of major bugs.

We already have a firmware dump of 100d, adding a new sub is not a huge effort if you are willing to test.

My preference is to avoid bugging Canon about anything relating to CHDK.

Well, as "stevsteve", my SX700 is also in 100d, so if you need tester, I can try.

Thanks for all, (great job)

I'll try to do a blind port for 100d this weekend.

Here's a test build for firmware 100d. If it works it should be fully functional, but I did it blind so there a fair chance something is broken.

No FI2 is included, so you will need to make your SD card bootable using a utility like Stick or CHIMP http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Bootable_SD_card

Code is checked in (r5003) in case anyone else wants to work on it. I had to change the loader to move the cache function inline like M3, which also affects the 100e firmware, but I'm pretty sure it's OK since I tested the equivalent change on sx710.

I've lost track - did dmitrys ever make CHIMP capable of installing "unofficial" builds?

Well, when I take a picture with flash, after the picture I have a Blank screen and nothing work, I must put the battery out and on for close. Other way, sometimes, I have the screen flashing with two thing in the same times (menu and picture or two menu).

Thanks for reporting. Can you check if there's a ROMLOG? http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Debugging#Camera_crash_logs_.28romlog.29

If you have any other details of the settings used when this happens, it would be helpful: Canon Shooting mode, ISO, CHDK raw on or off?

If anyone with a 100e camera can check (@ftm?) whether shooting with the flash works, that would also be helpful.

Some flashing when the Canon firmware updates the screen is normal. This happens a lot in Auto or if you have continuous AF enabled.
