CHDK includes a dissassembler in its /tools directory.  Nothing to buy.
Great! Thanks. (I did not see that info on Wiki)
Unfortunately, most of the developer information on the wiki is more than five years old.  While it's still mostly correct, it does not describe the most current porting techniques very well.

That's just the first step in creating a port.  Have you read through and mostly understood the rest of the instructions?
I see, and as I wrote earlier I'm not a programmer at all, just try to make it... I know, it's harder then I think for me, but I can't bothering you here too much.
We have helped people through the process before.  But it's not easy. Feel free to try - and don't worry about asking too many questions.

Are you working on Windows? If so, you should download one of the development CHDK tools and see if you can rebuild the code for an existing CHDK port.

Yeah, I'm on windows now, but got Linux too. Witch tool I have to use to rebuild an existing CHDK port? CHDK compiler? I rebuilded one, but the tool did not make FI2 file..so I can't start the port

If there were a one click tool, we would have clicked it already  ;)

The reality is that completing a port takes a lot of work, even for people who already have significant programming knowledge.

Successfully completing a port without any programming ability is extremely difficult, and the resulting port is likely to have major problems.

You can certainly teach yourself the things you need to know, but it's not going to be just a matter of finding the right tools or couple hours of reading tutorials. We can't just tell you what to do step by step because the process requires knowledge. I'm sorry if this is discouraging, but IMO it's better to have a clear idea of what you are getting into.

Using which too? For windows, https://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=12752.0 is probably the best one to start with.

FI2 files require keys that need to be extracted from the ROM dump, see platform/fi2.inc.txt in the source. However, and FI2 is only required for the "firmware update" loading method. The bootable card method does not require one.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Thanks again. I do my best. Never too late to learn something new. I see it's not too easy of course, and also english is not my native language, but it's really interesting to know how your tools work.
