It means that there's no CHDK for that version number so you won't be able to run CHDK.

NO - the TRUE firmware version is NOT 1.0.1.0 !

You will get the real version like described in the wikia: How_can_I_get_the_original_firmware_version_number_of_my_camera:

- create a file called ver.req in the root directory of your SD card
- switch on the camera in playback mode and wait for the main screen
- press button SET first, hold it down, then press button DISP

You will see a string like Firmware Ver GM1.00E. The 1.00E part is the firmware version.
ver.req is just an empty dummy file.


So the next try, please...

I've got the same problem - but it magically dissapears when I've created the file ver.req not ver.reg (its Q not G)
