I am new to the CHDK procedure.  I am trying to install the alpha for my new SD1100is.  I am able to follow the instructions up to the point of using cardtricks to install the .zip file to the card.  The problem is that the file is not a .zip, it is a .tgz.  Cardtricks apparently won't work with this.  I can manually extract the files, but I don't know what to do with them.  Just copying the files to the card, doesn't seem to work.

Never mind I found the answer

No offense but if you found the answer why post the question?

If you really feel the need to post the question so that your previous typing was not a waste (?) then at least post the answer as well so that someone who may not know the answer can benefit from your post.

After you unpack the tgz you should have

- a CHDK folder with plenty subfolder -> copy folder+contents to card

- 2  .bin files, 1 for 100c, 1 for 101a -> copy your version to card after renaming to diskboot.bin

FWIW, seems I'm too late,

Sorry, I couldn't find a way to delete the post, but I was able to edit it with the "I found the answer".  I guess I should have put the word "edit" before that sentence.
