Using 4GB cards on SX100IS.

Since FAT32 SD cards don't support auto-load, and FAT16 SD cards have a 2GB limit, and DryOS requires auto-load on boot, does that imply that there is no possible way to use CHDK with a card over 2GB on a PowerShot SX100 IS (which uses DryOS)...?

we have talked on this topic many times. did you search the forum?
you can set two partitions: one small fat16 to boot from (with CHDK installed) and other, res of card (about 4gb) fat32 to store photos. you have to use 'swap partitions' option to use this as far as i remember.

Dryos used to require autoload only, but not anymore. You can now use the firmware update method as well.
