Can't find a build for the Canon S100v

Hello,

A friend of mine just acquired a Canon S100v. When using "Stick" to find out which version of CHDK is suitable for his camera I get the message : There is no build for S100v ! How come the S100v is different from the S100 ?
Has anybody succeeded ?
Thanks for your help !

After some googling, the s100v appears to be the China-only version of the S100 that doesn't have GPS.
Try to make a firmware dump and upload it somewhere. If you're very lucky, the existing s100 port may be usable on the camera.

Hello,

Thanks for the info and for your help :D. I will try "to make a firmware dump" ( never done it before ). Why do you write  "and upload it somewhere" ?

'somewhere' means a file sharing site you're familiar with. This forum has an attachment size limit, so it's easier to upload bigger files to an other host and link it from your post.

OK, got it ... finally my friend could exchange his S100v for a S100. Thanks for your help  :)
