You probably need to review this :

I've waited around for some time now for any development in porting CHDK to SX520HS. Seems it's a no go.
I've decided that I'll try initiating the porting process(with very little knowledge of coding).

I'm following this article.

Question: I tried to load the fw dump to IDA which went well up until where I have to click the "Execute a IDC file" tool button which I cant find on my IDA toolbar cause my IDA's toolbar is a mess. I would like to have some help with this thing. Also please tell if this is the right method to port or if there's any easier way or if this is right at all. As you can see it's my first time. Thanks


Theo.


I think you're pretty brave to try porting it!! I really want to help you but I just don't understand it... so actually I can't help I'm sorry.
But please can you give us some updates!? How far are you with porting??
Still I really appreciate you're trying to port it! So from me you get a REALY BIG THANKS!!!

Attached is unfinished CHDK for sx520,firmware 100c. Based on the source code for the sx530.
The camera will probably have the same problems with some SD cards, as well as the sx530.
If you encounter a problem with the SD card, try using 'Firmware update method' or run CHDK pressing the POWER button longer than one second,using 'Bootable SD card method'.
It should be noted that I don't have this camera, so nothing was not tested.
Any use is at your own risk.
Use only with cameras that have firmware 100c.


EDIT:
Test build removed.

Or upload a photo which is made with a camera for which you want to know the firmware version somewhere (for example Google Drive or Dropbox) and post the download link  here.

Thanks guys! Found my firmware version! But unfortunatly its 100b so that's f*cked up...
Ohh well, nothing more to do than just wait I guess. Or is there any way I could change my firmware up to 100c?

Unfortunately you can not change the firmware version, you'll have to be patient.
