SORRY! Canon S2 IS

I have read ad re-read the FAQ. I am able to format my SD card, Make the DCIM and MISC folders, download the proper version (I think), place the files in the root and MISC folder, but when I turn the camera on, I never get the "new" update firmware option? Help!

Thanks in advance.

Hi, welcome to the forum !

The 'firm update' option should appear at the bottom of the leftmost Canon menu:

i.e. start cam in review mode - press menu.

The new firm update option only appears if a file PS.FIR is present in the root of the card.

BTW official download site is here: http://mighty-hoernsche.de/

Thanks! It was there the whole time. The menu looked like it was "grayed out" with only the sound button active. I scrolled down and sure enough, there it was! 

Thanks again!

@PhyrePhox

I believe he was referring to this Wiki page http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Bootable_SD_card

(close to top of page)

i agree it's a bit out of date ...

cheers,

wim
