yeah, lock card and start up in play mode - if your setup is OK you might see CHDK logo (if already implemented)
pop up for a second, but then you would typically not notice CHDK anymore.

Now press <Alt> (should be the Direct Print button on your cam) -> you will see <Alt> @ bottom center screen.
With <Alt> visible, press "Menu" and the CHDK main menu should appear.

If you can't get to the main menu, you:

- didn't prepare the card properly (unlikely if you used CT  :D)

- maybe did not download latest DISKBOOT.BIN ?

More keys ? go here FAQ - CHDK Wiki

hope that helps,

wim

PS Note I don't have this cam, so i don't know what is already/is not yet implemented ...

PS2: where's my manners: welcome to the forum, hope you'll have fun !!

Matze,
yes, just switch the Camera on, if the write protect mode is on, you should either correctly see the CHDK message or the camera would say 'card is locked', this is when CHDK is not recognized.

@matze

Yes...you are. What you're doing there is creating a udump card, this is only necessary as a first step
before porting the cam ... which diablo is doing/has already done.

what you need to do: card in reader -> start CardTricks & select card.
click 'Format as FAT', and then 'Make Bootable'.

Done, now put DISKBOOT.BIN (from this thread)
on your card, lock it, and put in camera. Start camera.

wim

PS if this does not work, your firmware is probably different than the 8 dec. one ...

to test: -  same card as above in cam, but no write protect
            - start cam, press and hold 'Func' and press 'display'
            - real firmware version is shown as 'GM 1xxx'

Canon only very rarely issues 'updates', and only they know if cams with
different firmwares are totally identical hardware-wise.
So, each firmware version requires it's own port.
You can dump your firmware, and compare it with the existing dump, though.
If you're very lucky, they are identical enough not to require a separate porting process
(based on previously ported cams, there's only a couple of % chance though)

wim

Basically, you don't need an update for that camera. CHDK is far better than any update you'll ever get from Canon. :)

I didn't know there was anything after 1.00b. I asked the same question about 1.00a. Same answer.

These things don't seem to have the same update regime as Canon's digital SLRs.
MK
Powershot A1000IS, EOS 400D
Canon A1 (x2) etc....

There's only official Canon updates for older P&S ' s ...

For the newer ones, Canon has come up with a brilliant scheme:

they just release new cams i.o. firmware updates, keeping them pesky hackers so busy
that they don't have time to start messing with their precious DSLR's   :haha
