that's funny.
so i guess we can let autobuild also "build" for 1.00h then ;)

I can confirm that chdk works on 1.00h (at least as far as I know).  Question is, what do those 7 lines of hex do that I would want to upgrade my firmware to 1.00i?

I have now chdk running on my 1.00H and seems to be working all right. But it sure takes some time to try out all the functions.

Fantastic little application and a big hand to the developers from me.

I am trying to use the commands TurnOnBackLight and TurnOffBackLight in a LUA script on my G9-100f with build #713.
They do not seem to be recognized and provoke an error as G9 thinks they are variables. :(
Any experience of this around here?

The correct function is
set_backlight(n)

where n is number, with zero meaning off and any other value meaning on. I don't know why the wiki lists TurnOnBackLight as a scripting command.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

@v3rtex

the switching back on is 'normal'

from 679 release notes:
Quote
+ added two small functions... TurnOnBackLight? & TurnOffBackLight?, which turn on and off the LCD Backlight (or EVF backlight) - useful for energy saving or camouflage missions :D
also added ubasic and lua commands: set_backlight(x), whereas 0 disables Backlight and 1 enables it. mind you, after a shot the display is turned on again (probably loop set_backlight_statement(0) in script!?).
an example script can be found here: http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,2744.msg27703.html#msg27703
todo: PERHAPS make it that you can disable (automatically after a given time?) LCD directly in CHDK, also on todo list: Dimming the light

thx to fudgey, ewavr & Dataghost, who made that happen \o/ (see https://chdk.kernreaktor.org/mantis/view.php?id=65 for links)

Yeah thanks. That's what I was afraid of. It is still a real improvement for intervalometer scripts. Switching off the LCD light avoids quickly draining out the battery.
Again, a great thank for all people working on CHDK. Implementing LUA scripts is really nice. :lol
