I just did a quick try using the "update method", everything seems fine: took some pictures and videos without any problems.
Thanks for the feedback, I have enabled autobuild (trunk only for now).

Hi! I'm a bit late to the party, but I just bought a used M10 from ebay. The initial plan was to use it for astrophotography but naturally I became interested in other topics and how to exploit the hardware for other uses, hence I stumbled across CHDK.

I was already running the firmware to v1.1.1a, though I see now the link to the firmware dumps (nice!). I'd like to report that the "trunk" auto-build version appears to work perfectly fine, besides the flicker which I already found the note about how to minimize. I've tested the motion detection and the interval scripts for now, but I'm a tinkerer so you may hear back from me about other aspects as either feedback or questions. I can also volunteer to test other things upon request.

Many thanks to those who have contributed to this project, it seems like an excellent addition to the native software! At less than €200 for a used kit, I'm overjoyed at the value of this thing and even more so with the help of CHDK =D

The camera seems to be reasonably priced considering I paid for a new kit €222 once...

better late than never :)
i'd say chdk is the best investment canon never made.
frustration is a key ingredient in progress

I'm not sure whether I'm missing anything, but I can report some extra findings from v1.1.1a, in case it's useful for anyone:
- the script from http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=10864 has allowed me to confirm a very short motion detection delay down to ca. 50-130 ms without any tweaking except for the trigger threshold, based on a 1080p/60fps YouTube video manually started on my smart TV*, and I can throw a drink coaster into the FoV and it will crisply snap it just inside the leading edge of the photo; still unknown how much further down the delay can be pushed, but I'm impressed for now, unless lightning proves I need even shorter delay
- after manually adding "111a" to v0.8 of https://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=13956.0, the automatic power-down/power-on works as expected, and the script continues to pick back up after reloading CHDK, so at least that particular Lua script's native calls work as expected
- until I reinstalled to a freshly-formatted fat32 (for auto-boot), I had basically no flicker from anything (but disabled OSD); after reinstalling, there's a bit of flicker while the camera is being jostled about, but the menus are still perfectly usable during <ALT> mode while preparing for a shot
- there appears to be a *bug* when I change the <ALT> button to WiFi, because then the PlayBack button no longer functions at all; it's best to leave <ALT> set to PlayBack so that both modes can be activated via short- or long-press

*the TV's native refresh rate is 60 Hz and an ultra-slow-mo (16x @ 480fps) confirms that I can see time steps of ca. 16 ms matching both the TV's and video's 60fps
