    There is no real progess so far ... as i dont have any experience with the chdk ... :/

    The Spot Metering is definitly inside the firmware and should work in the liveview mode.

    ROM:FFADBD80 aLvaeErrorIll_0 DCB "[LVAE] ERROR >> ILLEGAL_PARAMETER (LVAE_PARAMETER.WBGain) : Spot"
    ROM:FFADBD80                                         ; DATA XREF: ROM:off_FFADC030o
    ROM:FFADBD80                 DCB "Metering()",0

    what other missing functions would be interessting to find ?

    Hi,
    is it possible to reupload the dump or tell us how you dumped it?

    Thanks in advance!

    Great to see that there are actually some people working on a hack for our DSLR...

    Any progress so far?

    It would be so great to have chdk or something similar on our cam...
    Or at least some missing functions like the spot metering...

    It would also be nice to match the RAW continuous shooting speed of an XSi of 3.0 fps instead of 1.5 fps.

    Perhaps see where the firmware differs between the XSi and XS... since Canon released both firmware updates recently.

    Basically the same hardware... seems like a firmware limitation.

    As you might have seen, Spot metering and ISO 3200 have been enabled for the EOS 400d.
    Just wondering whether this could help to unlock these features on the EOS 1000d also, or does the 1000d use another OS?

    It would be great to update it with all the features which the 450d has, except for the 9 Point AF, haha

    But Spot Metering, ISO 3200 and highlight tone priority would be so great....

    Agreed...

    I would think unlocking features would be much easier than getting new features.  I wonder if it is just as easy to see the differences between the 450D dump and the 1000D dump to see where the FPS limitation is. Once the limitation is found, make the necessary hex edits to the 1000D and then recompile the firmware.  Then with the new recompiled firmware, flash the camera.

    I mean there is a high degree of risk and cost involved if it bricks your camera.  But I don't know if there's maybe a way to unbrick the SLR easy to make this method a little safer?

    Probably much easier said than done....

    I don't think that it's very dangerous to upload a modded firmware on the 1000d if there are only hidden things made visible. But we are not talking about CHDK thats reversible cause it's loaded from the SD Card.

    Btw. made a megaupload mirror of the dump:

    i also got a 450D dump now and it looks like its the same firmware. both gets compiled out of the same project.

    450D:

    ROM:07810668 aFei00HostTorna DCB "fei(0,0) host:/tornado2.2/target/proj/juno/default/vxWorks h=100"
    ROM:07810668                 DCB ".100.100.100 e=100.100.100.200 u=target tn=targetname",0

    1000D:
    ROM:FF810668 aFei00HostTornado2_2Tar DCB "fei(0,0) host:/tornado2.2/target/proj/juno/default/vxWorks h=100"
    ROM:FF810668                                         ; DATA XREF: ROM:off_FF81075Co
    ROM:FF810668                 DCB ".100.100.100 e=100.100.100.200 u=target tn=targetname",0

    Maybe its enough to change the modell number @F8002014:

    450D Model number:
    00000176

    1000D  Model number:
    00000254

    If changing the model number is the solution to get more functions it would be too easy :D

    Would you also upload the 450D dump?
