Canon G5X II

Hey, so I wanted to download the firmware for the Canon G5X ii and couldnt get it to work from the download links...the camera would always tell me, that an SD card with the firmware update was needed. I think the issue is, that the files I can download here dont have a .FIR file, which the actual firmware update is...would love some help and/or advice!

Edit: I have attached a screenshot of ACID which I tried to use to find the correct version for me to download...no luck there

What are you trying to do? Install CHDK or update your camera firmware?
First one:
Despite naming PowerShot G5 X Mark II runs "EOS code" internally. And that makes G5XII porting a Magic Lantern job. Because of various reasons (lack of manpower, mostly + Digic 8 and ML don't run well ATM) there will be no ML port in foreseeable future.
Second one:
Download firmware update file for version 1.1.0 from Canon Support sites.

 :( Sorry, CHDK is not available for G5x2. You need a compatible cam.

Hey sorry for writing my request kinda misleading. With "firmware" I meant the CHDK...so yeah your first answer was the one I was looking for...even if it is not the one I was hoping for haha. Thanks anyways!
