I have unsupported firmware version for SX130 what to do?

Hi,
I am trying to install chdk on a powershot sx130. When I check firmware version, it is 1.00B and there is no zipfile to download. Is there a way to get chdk to this camera? There is no firmware update to download on Canon website, if it is too old for them to still have them available for download, I don't know? Is there a way to find this firmware somewhere else? Tried to use the firmware 1.00C but it did not work. After I selected firm update the screen just goes black and nothing more happens.

If you make a firmware dump using https://chdk.fandom.com/wiki/Canon_Basic/Scripts/Dumper and upload it somewhere (a file site like dropbox, google drive etc) we can check whether it's compatible with any known versions or needs a new port. If it needs a new port it should be pretty simple.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

There was a firmware update for the SX130IS released in 2010; but it looks like Canon has deleted it.


You could try contacting Canon and see if they can provide the update for you.

CHDK ports:
  sx30is (1.00c, 1.00h, 1.00l, 1.00n & 1.00p)
  g12 (1.00c, 1.00e, 1.00f & 1.00g)
  sx130is (1.01d & 1.01f)
  ixus310hs (1.00a & 1.01a)
  sx40hs (1.00d, 1.00g & 1.00i)
  g1x (1.00e, 1.00f & 1.00g)
  g5x (1.00c, 1.01a, 1.01b)
  g7x2 (1.01a, 1.01b, 1.10b)

Thank you so much for your replies! Yes it seems they deleted the firmware update. I actually managed to install the update though. When I searced and searched for it I found a site with links to the update, but it also said that if the links didn't work, to copy the adress and go to web.archives.org, so when I entered the copied Web adress there I got two dates in a calender, one in 2015 so I clicked and there the zipfile was!
After installing the update I successfully installed chdk! 🙌😊
I will contact canon though and see if it is an error on there part that the firmware update is not there, or if they stopped supporting it.I really hope its a mistake, otherwise I will be disappointed in canon.
I recently bought a nikon coolpix 5400 from 2003 and there was no problem finding the firmware update for this camera on there site (the update enabled raw shooting on it)

The Canon firmware update package from 2010 is also still available from the

CHDK P&S FW dumps repository, have a look to the sub folder "Others".

If I remember correctly, this is the 1.01C firmware (Canon Firmware Ver 1.0.1.0) mentioned in the SX130 wikia article, the only published update for the SX130 by Canon.
