Meanwhile, there are several other methods of preparing SD cards : http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Prepare_your_SD_card

None of them are as complete and easy as using STICK unfortunately.

  Gary

the message you got - "Unsupported major.minor version 51.0" - actually means that the java run time you are using is earlier than the one I used to compile STICK, i.e. not 1.8 (or 1.7 either - looks like you were using 1.6). To test this could you:
   open a terminal window
   navigate to the STICK folder
   type the command
       java - version
If this says 1.6 then there's something wrong with your java install. If it says 1.8 then could you try executing
   ./stickML.command

Another Update:


I have updated my MacOS Sierra to 10.12.1 (same as Gary) and re-installed the latest Java (taking care to remove the old one). I can confirm that STICK runs fine in the new environment.

Someone else reported the same problem as Gary. It turns out that it is necessary to remove an old version of Java before installing a new one. I'm pretty certain that if Gary follows the instructions on the Oracle webpage for doing this and then reinstalls Java 8 things will work fine (they did for the other user).

Hi Zeno

I followed that Oracle link and performed an uninstall of Java.
Then I closed my Safari windows and quit Safari.
Then I downloaded Java distribution jre-8u111-macosx-x64.dmg and reinstalled it.
I once again closed all my Safari windows and quit.
Then I brought up the Java test page which verified the installation.

"Verified Java Version
Completion checkmark
Congratulations!
You have the recommended Java installed (Version 8 Update 111)."

When I tested with STICK, I got the same "unsupported major.minor version 51.0" error.

So I followed earlier instructions to navigate to my STICK directory and verify the Java version.

Garys-Mac-mini:Desktop Gary$ cd STICK
Garys-Mac-mini:STICK Gary$ ls
Stable CHDK      elevate.vbs      sticklog.txt
Stick.jar      stick.bat      stickx.cmd
asseng32.dll      stick.command      stickx.sh
asseng64.dll      stick.properties
elevate.cmd      stickML.command
Garys-Mac-mini:STICK Gary$ java - version
Unrecognized option: -
Could not create the Java virtual machine.
Garys-Mac-mini:STICK Gary$ java -version
java version "1.6.0_65"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_65-b14-468-11M4833)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.65-b04-468, mixed mode)
Garys-Mac-mini:STICK Gary$

And it is this that has me scratching my head.   

How do I have java version "1.6.0_65" in a terminal window, in the STICK directory when I just installed Java V8?

Gary - there are more instructions on removal here. I suggest you try them. Good luck!

I de-installed all the Apple flavours of Java, installed the 8.111 runtime and SDK.
That got STICK working for me.

Then I reinstalled Java 6 legacy to support Harmony Remote software and re-tested.
Both STICK and Harmony are playing nice now.

Thanks for the assistance.
