Thanks friends, I could run CHDK on my IXUS 160 and it worked like a charm.

I just enable "remote shutter", set the "switch type" on "One Push" and "control mode" on "Normal".
Then easily connected a USB cable to camera. Whilst connecting the other end of cable to "USB port on my laptop", camera goes to "half press" mode and then by quickly unplugging the cable from "USB port on my laptop", camera goes to "full press" and picture is taken.

No DIY, No switch button, No battery, just by using a USB cable I could take pictures remotely!!! amazing!!

i would like to thank all developers and friends here who answered my questions.
I also encourage all newbies like me to start CHDK.

I just found a camera with firmware version 100b in the wild. I will figure out what I need to do and attempt to fetch a firmware dump of it.

Use the canon basic dumper http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Canon_Basic/Scripts/Dumper

To run the script, you must set up an SD card for canon basic: http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Canon_Basic/Card_Setup

If you already have CHDK on another camera, you can use the Lua script on that page to prepare the card, but make sure to unlock the card or delete the diskboot before putting it in the camera you want to dump.

Once you have the dump, upload it to a file hosting site.

I managed to follow the instructions and the resulting firmware for ELPH 160 version 100b is at:

http://tenrec.builders/cameras/elph160-100b/PRIMARY.BIN

I've opened up the wiki page about how to port to a new minor firmware version.

---

Btw, the instructions for making a universal dumper image seemed very complex, all things considered. So I created an SD card image for doing it:

http://tenrec.builders/cameras/canon-universal-dumper.zip

Instructions for this are simple:

(1) Download file
(2) Unzip file
(3) Use win32 disk imager or equivalent mac/linux program to write to sd card.
(4) Put sd card in camera
(5) Press play button to start camera
(6) Press function button
(7) Put sd card in reader and copy off PRIMARY.BIN

I ran rebuild-stubs on your 100b dump, all the addresses are identical, so 100b should be supportable as a copy of 100a.  (see ixus140 for an example)

I haven't actually looked back through the thread to see if anyone has seen this firmware before.

edit:
searching the print view, it looks like this is the first mention of 100b.

I've added 100b as a copy of 100a. This is only relevant for 1.5 builds, since 1.4 doesn't have the compatibility check.

The 1.4 build I posted earlier in http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=12321.msg126202#msg126202 should work on both 100a and 100b cameras.

I have a question, but maybe it's not the right moment for this question. You know? I'm just gonna ask my question. This is the IXUS160 and it has a digit IV+ processor isn't it then just posssible that this firmware/chdk release works for the sx 520 hs (with a bit of tweaking of course)? Or am I just being stupid?

Every camera model needs its own version of CHDK - you can't use CHDK from one camera model on a different model.   Having said that,  there is a lot of similarity between all CHDK ports but the difference are more than just "a bit of tweaking".

Hi,
currently I have managed to launch CHDK in IXUS160 and it didn't crash. I didn't read that part why camera is "bricking", but later i will have 6 more IXUS160 I will be glad to give you "bricking" stats.

Also I used mrweerden .net libs with IXUS 135 in my project. I use simple functions such as capture picture and livestream, but I am experiencing problems with livestream. I am getting livestream picture 720x240px I would be glad to get 480, but I don't even have a clue from where to begin.
