G16 Porting Thread

Well, I've started another port. 

In keeping with  CHDK Wikia :  My Camera Isn't Ported Yet - where it says "If there is work being done on a camera, there will be a development thread in the CHDK forum and maybe something about it on that model's wiki page" -  I'm starting this development thread.

So far I have something that builds and loads far enough to blink the camera's green LED in the boot.c code.  Which for a DIGIC6 camera is pretty close to magic (thanks to srsa_4c & reyalp).

At this point,  I'm planning to support three versions of G16 firmware :  1.00h , 1.01a , 1.01c.   

I only have access to a 1.01c camera.   I need volunteers who will test the other versions. 

PM me with an email address [ link ] and I'll add you to the beta testing team.

At some point I'll post builds here.  If you want to try the green led blinking code in advance of that, just let me know.

Great !   And I guess that's good new / bad news. 

Good news for you because the 1.01c will be done first and it's one I will also be able to test. 

Bad news for me because it doesn't help with the other two firmware versions.

But I now have a volunteer (via PM) who will test the 1.00h.  So that just leaves the 1.01a.
