I have a SX430 IS, can I help? I want to try.

Hello, Im new here. I have this camera and I would like to know if there's someone already working with the CHDK version for this camera. I would like to know if theres any way I could help speed the process.

Btw, this throws me an E60 error when I try to use any of the WiFi Functions, is there a way I could fix that, maybe by loading the original firmware from any available dump?

Thanks!

Unfortunately, firmware dumps cannot be used to reload / replace Canon firmware in the camera.  While it might be technically possible to figure out how to do so, the risk of bricking a few cameras during the development process has kept anyone from trying.

Oh, thank you! I'll try to port the available dump, mine seems damaged...

This can be a good starting point for firmware 100b.
File kbd.c is not finished and I'm not sure about restart function in loader / main.c (sub_FF038D8C).

Most likely nothing.  It will just fail to work and your camera will crash and stop responding.

Whether or not that does any damage to your camera is unknown.  It might turn it into a brick or you might simply be able to pull out the battery, re-insert it, and carry on normally.

But one thing for certain is that CHDK for the sx410 will not run on your sx430.
