You can find the latest available build here: http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=11550.msg119793#msg119793

You can use STICK to install: http://www.zenoshrdlu.com/stick/stick.html
As written on that page, you need JAVA installed to be able to run STICK.

Since this is not an official release, you need to follow these instructions: http://www.zenoshrdlu.com/stick/stickx.html

Finally, you can find alternative ways to install (and also technical details) here: http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Prepare_your_SD_card#Bootable_SD_Card_Method

The default ALT button is the playback button [>]. You can enter and leave ALT mode by a brief press on that button, if you hold it down for more than 0.5 second, you get the button's original function.
You may want to read about the port's limitations in the porting thread. For more information about CHDK, you can find lots of links on this page.

As written here, you can choose a bigger font for the menu.

The "vibration" problem is not solved currently.
Certain Canon drawings completely erase the whole screen, for example:
- the blinking battery icon
- the animated image display in playback mode (the one you get when scrolling through images)
As the drawing speed is rather slow, the CHDK OSD is not really usable when it is continuously erased.

I can not access the  ALT menu, this is not executable physically, when you press this button the apparatus is switched off ...
 The apparatus  switchs off-firmware "flies off"

Hi, I am shopping for a replacement of my aging A-720IS, and the SX-280 is the small size I want (shirt-pocketable), and it looks like CHDK porting is at least in progress and some of the feature set is working. What my main question is; have any of you doing the CHDK porting work, and the testers, noticed any problems relating to the camera not reading the battery charge properly, and shutting down when the battery is still nearly full and nowhere near being actually low on charge?  I've read a disturbingly high number of bad reviews and complaints by users on Amazon, PhotoBlog, and other websites, on this whole series of SX models (240, 260, and 280) relating to the camera shutting down and wanting a fresh battery just a minute or two after the owner has powered it up with a new, fully charged battery in it.  I'm hoping that this is just a firmware glitch in early production models that was fixed with a firmware update, and I would expect you CHDK guys would know more about the firmware than just about anyone else outside of the actual Canon engineers. I'd sure like to buy this camera, but only if the CHDK porting is successfully completed (seems to be some gnarly issues with porting CHDK on the 280), and only if these battery life complaints have been resolved with a firmware update and it's not that the camera's hardware is at fault. No way to fix a bad component on the motherboard if that's what's causing the battery complaints.
