My approach is much the same as yours @reyalp   
Will get to it soon. Just got to stash my movie changes (@srsa_4c)  and revert to the standard tree. A good parallel visual diff display is useful in the checking phase because you say only addresses should change. 

The movie stuff isn't yet part of the development svn repo yet I assume.

FWIW, you can also check out a new tree (disk space permitting, of course ;)). If you use multiple source trees, you can avoid duplicating all the firmware dumps by setting up a separate tree just for dumps and setting PRIMARY_ROOT to point to it in localbuildconf.inc or make command line.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Here's a test version for the 100h firmware on SX60HS.  I'm not terribly confident with it, as capdis gave me quite a bit of grief with jumptables in capt_seq.c that required by hand entries.  Let's see if it at least boots the splash screen.  Good luck!

Edit: since this doesn't work I'm deleting the attachments..new version to try further down the thread

and result is:
sx60hs-100b-1.5.0-5010-full_ALPHA - blink GREEN (power) led,
sx60hs-100c-1.5.0-5010-full_ALPHA - blink GREEN (power) led,
sx60hs-100f-1.5.0-5010-full_ALPHA - blink GREEN (power) led,
sx60hs-100h-prealpha-svn5010 - nothing, absolutely.

Ok thanks.  The three versions that are not 100h are behaving as expected.  100h is obviously bad.  I can't look today but I should have time on Tuesday to create a corrected version. 
Thanks for your patience.

@reyalp perhaps you can remind me, are there any changes needed outside of the 100h directory to support a new firmware version? Such as includes or loader?  I don't think so but thought I'd ask. 🙂

Not usually. A change would be required in loader main.c if the cache function doesn't have the same address for all subs. In that case, it has to be copied inline like sx700

If the stuff in platform/sx60hs (not in a sub) referred to ROM or variable address it might need to be changed, but I don't see anything like that.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

@megazaic
I found an error.  Please the attached version below.  Fingers crossed.  Boots to a blinking led in 100f which is expected because its the wrong firmware version.
Edit: doesn't work because filewrite task not updated....

Fingers crossed.
No, sx60hs-100h-prealpha-svn5010-v2 was not lucky. again a clean black screen, no reaction.
