G9 porting progress

Hi there.

I'm porting CHDK to the G9. My model has firmware 1.00H but I will reproduce my progress for the other firmware-versions as well.

Tasks:
  • Get the cam started.
    • start cam under chdk-control without any extensions
    • create led-blinker-test-task
    Progress: not done
  • GUI output.
    • General output
    • Histogramm
    • Zebra mode
    Progress: not done
  • hijack Keyboard handler (this includes USB-support)
    Progress: not done
  • hijack shoot-task.
    • control darkframe subtraction.
    • implement raw-save: This might be unnecessary, since the G9 saves raw itself, but it should be simple thus I'll include it anyway.
    Progress: not done
  • hijack movie-task.
    Progress: not done
  • Include multipartition/boot from SDHC support.
    Progress: not done
  • BASIC scripting.
    Progress: not done
  • Lua scripting.
    Progress: not done
  • Overrides.
    • AV
    • TV
    • ISO
    • Subject Distance
    • Bracketing in cont' mode
    Progress: not done
  • Image enhancement.
    • Bad Pixel removal
    • custom curves
    Progress: not done


If I forgot anything, please comment.
This post will be updated as progress continues.

Next: prepare dev-environment for new device and multiple firmwares.

Cheers.

Firmware Versions
« Reply #1 on: 22 / September / 2008, 15:37:17 »
It seems there are four different firmware versions for the G9 around.

  • 1.00D
  • 1.00F
  • 1.00G
  • 1.00H

I already had D and F; I dumped H from my own device and downloaded G just yet.
Since nobody has dumped a 1.00H before, I added it to the G9-wiki-page.

If someone has a G9 with a firmware that I'm not aware of, please report and I'll include it.

Cheers.

thank you all for working on this project,

how long do you think it will realistically  be before G9 users can use CHDK?

I can program but not in C im a VB man and only very simple stuff. but willing to help anyway i can.

We probably won't need a G9 port anymore. I think I'll return my device and get a G10

....

In the worst case, the G9 will be available as a second cam for a while, so I guess going directly to the G10 is worth the shot.  :)

I know this is not the right place to start this discussion, but please don't name the g10 unless you are sure it doesn't have the same dust eating feature as the g7 and the g9.
The way in which the canon is facing this situation is truly annoying.

Please don't reply to this post in this thread, but open a new one in general chat if you like.

I posted here just to "don't forget", maybe it's time to start a class action to try to convince the canon to take the responsibility of the design errors made on a thus expensive cam.
