Great surprise to find a 101b build this morning!  I didn't expect anything significant until this weekend. :o

Unfortunately when I run it the menu is over only half the screen and flishy-flashy so can't tell what I've got.  Looks like RAW is ON by default, but the camera bricks after each shot, and the CRW files that get recorded are not viewable with any app that I have.  The real time histogram at half-press is working -- a feature I've always wanted on my powershots.

Great progress.  Thanks!

For the flashy menu, disable props case show menu in debug parameters.

Raw files were reported to be ok, strange. Are you using a proper application?

@ disable props case show menu -
I don't have a clue what that means, never having used CHDK before.

@ proper app -
I have Canon RAW codec installed on XP, and tried using Photoshop elements, ACDSee, Irfanview. 
In contrast I have no problem with my EOS 40D RAWs, but I think they use a different RAW format, designated with .CR2 file extension.

@hardnrg
@ma_jk: If you can upload a RAW file somewhere I could test your file against the GIMP plugin, which uses dcraw.

Wow, this is simply amazing! It boots in my 101b cam without problems, and the live histogram is great! Navigating the menues and changing settings works like a charm, and I am a bit overwhelmed by the options!

I can confirm that shooting in RAW mode crashes the cam. Did not inspect the file yet. The blue direct print light shines up, but after that -> silencio. But, hey, this is soo cool!  :D


Edit:
Well, the camera does not crash after taking a RAW shot but reacts to the power off button only after the shot was taken. The display goes dark also.

The raw file is fine and writing is fast! UFraw says: "Cannot use camera white balance, reverting to auto white balance." But the picture is there in it's full glory! Great!

@fgagnon
I had that too, the solution is easy. In the CHDK main menu there is an entry "Debug parameters". Have a look there!

I really dont have time lately, but i managed to compile another build to fix some glitches

Changes:
- previous bug fixed, now you can see live histogram, clock, battery, space, the lot! camera LCD really looks supercool  8)
- histogram in playback mode now shows correct histogram (ALT + UP + HALF SHOOT)



Bravo, bravo, bravissimo. Good work
