100h firmware is now included in "auto build".  Any problems, please post here.

I'll do a port for it.  Hopefully very few differences from 100f.  Wonder why no one's mentioned 100g yet?
Might take a week!

Greetings everyone,
I bought the Canon SX60 HS after checking to see if it was supported in CHDK. I see firmware versions 100b,c,f,h. No problem, I'm sure I'll get one of those.  Start STICK and select a photo: "No official build is available for this camera"  Firmware 100g   I should have expected no less.

I've been trying to get a firmware dump but I'm either using outdated information or user error.
  • I used EOScard, checked the box for SCRIPT everything else un-checked. Saved and it reported successful.
  • Using Windows 10: Created file script.req saved as "All Files" and UTF-8  The only line in the file was "for DC_scriptdisk" w/o quotation marks.
  • Created extend.m same way, All Files and UTF-8. The file contained the first script from here:  http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Canon_Basic/Scripts/Dumper
  • Both files put on the newly low level formatted card. Tried as it was and failed, then took a photo so the file structure would have been created and that failed.
When I say that it failed I mean that I started in Playback mode, then pressed the func/set button and waited for 3-4 minutes. Checked on the computer an there are no other files on the SD card.

Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated.

I believe the script.req file must be written to the boot sector using a disk editor.

I've done it in Linux but not windows. 
Once you have a dump, I'll be happy to create a port for 100g.

I'm not sure if this is the problem, but if using notepad both of these should ANSI rather than UTF-8. Windows likes to put a BOM at the start if you select UTF-8
Don't forget what the H stands for.

THANKS,
I remade the files using ANSI. At first it didn't do anything but after I took a photo to set up the file structure and tried again it worked.
Here is the Canon SX60 HS firmware 100g:   https://drive.google.com/open?id=1WebhwjLcuChUinoMkRYczGeZRSzRlnsX

Great, dump looks correct. All the relevant addresses appear to be identical to 100f, so here's a test build. (the 100f autobuild would refuse to load because of a version check)

Please report whether it works.

@reyalp I notice your test build attachment still says 100f.  Just in my phone so I can't check inside to see the compatibility check.  😳

Yes, it's built in the 100f tree but it should accept both 100f and 100g.

Yes, thank you,
It's working. I've only tested the intervalometer and exposures longer than 15 sec with ISO higher than 100. Those are the important parts for me. 😃
Thanks again.
