maybe DELETE and [+/-] keys are interchanged ?

No.

For most A-series cameras no separate +/- and "delete" keys, this is only one key, which named in code as 'KEY_ERASE' and used everywhere. +/- key (as separate key present in G- and SX- series) is named as 'KEY_EXPO_CORR' and not used in code (but can be used in scripts).

So, if this is more convenient to users, I can interchange this keys.

p.s. : This may cause some misunderstanding in scripts...

I just want to jump in hear and give ewavr a huge THANK YOU!

Some how the combination of hacking goodness combined with my digital photography has some how induced a state of such great euphoria that I haven't been able to wipe the stupid grin off of my face for nearly two days now that I started shooting images in .DNG and playing with them in CS3.

And fe50, thank you for doing the hard work in creating a profile for the SX10.
Just because I don't agree with you does not mean you are wrong.  And just because I agree with you does not mean we are right.

My firmware is GM1.00c. Is there anything I can do? I can't get it to recognize the 1.01a CHDK.

Almost every firmware revision needs it's own port. Unless you are a coder, there's nothing you can do.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Well if someone could help out that would be awesome. I just got my camera so I don't know why it's not an older firmware. :/

There is no dump available for this firmware version so doing that would be the first step.  Read the FAQ if you need information on how to dump firmware.  Then from there you will have to wait until a developer with your camera and firmware version starts the port unless you have assembly and C knowledge in which case you could do it yourself.

Since I am not well qualified in either I do what I can to clean-up and add to the wiki while the developers are doing what they do best.

Thx for explaining this...so we should NOT interchange the keys, documenting the keys should be enough.

Sometimes there are different firmware version because of small hardware changes, e.g. chips from different manufacturers...

As LukeSkaff said: dump your firmware with Cardtricks CT (under MS Windows):

- download CT & expand all files to a folder on your hard disc, start it
- use a card reader & an empty SD card with a size < 4GB, select the drive in CT (it's the SD card symbol)
- use "Format as FAT", then "Make bootable", then press "NewDryOS" & follow the instructions
- start your camera with this prepared & LOCKED card with the PLAY [>] button, wait 1minute, then remove card & batteries
- insert the card in the card reader, start CT again, press "Strings"

--> if you see some strings there, then go on:
- close the bintext (Strings) window, in CT press "Clean"
- zip & upload the cleaned firmware dump somewhere (e.g. at http://www.zshare.net/ ) and post the link to  this  thread.

When the porting for the 1.01a version is complete, this port can be adapted to the other firmware versions...

Thanks, man!

Here is the 1.00c dump. I think I did it right. If not please let me know.

Ok, dumping was successful - the fw strings are there...but we need the complete dump file (your zip contains the saved strings).
--> after pressing the "Clean" button, Cardtricks ask you where to store the cleaned dump file - zip this file & upload it  :)
