Hi,

@ahoffmannphotography
if you can see the blue led blink when turn on your 400d with a CF card in, your cam is ready for the hack,  it must be something wrong with firmware or .bin file.
please make sure your cam run lastest firmware ver: 1.1.1 and use your cam to format your card (don't format in windows).  then use cardtricks to make it bootable, use HxD to change label.

edit: if your card already have the hack installed and your cam hang, not bootup, format it in windows first, after that insert into your cam and format it again.

edit2: Please read the guide from Raingrove here: http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,3290.msg38630.html#msg38630

I Followed the Instructions and they work great. One thing i would like to ask is how to does spot metering work. I managed to switch meter from partial to spot but i don't know which area is being metered? Does it work like center metering ?

I Followed the Instructions and they work great. One thing i would like to ask is how to does spot metering work. I managed to switch meter from partial to spot but i don't know which area is being metered? Does it work like center metering ?

evaluative:  mesure whole viewframe
spot:  3% at the center
partial: ~10% at the center
center weight: not sure 40 or 60% viewframe but 10% at the center is most impacted


Quote from: ahoffmannphotography
get the .txt file and then search for "release" but it says that this word has not been found?

You forget to set spot mesure before take out card and view file .txt
Read guide step 11

Hello,

I have some question.

You mention about
Quote
please make sure your cam run lastest firmware ver: 1.1.1 and use your cam to format your card (don't format in windows).  then use cardtricks to make it bootable, use HxD to change label.

But in the 3rd step update firmware with testfir.fir, then the cam will blank screen. Need to remove battery and card. Do I need to insert the CF card into the cam and on it to format the card? Then only use cardtrick to make my CF bootable?

Quote
3. empty your CF, download testfir.fir from http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,1618.0.html and copy it into the root of your CF.

4. insert CF, and then run firmware update again using testfir.fir the screen will go blank. wait 5 minutes, turn off, take battery out and back in.

5. insert CF into card reader and perform a quick format.


Please advise. Thank you.

Hi,

after run testfir.fir, pullout and reinsert battery, no need to remove CF card. then turn on and format the card using camera menu.

Thanks a lot Thaibv 4 such a gr8 effort & hardwork to empower the cams with more features.  :-*

The hack got installed successfully.
But strangely i managed w/o HxD step.Did not find anything like 0x47.  :o There were hex addresses only & as per ur earlier clue, the rows & columns didn't match to show number 47.

+ earlier, the cardtricks said my 4gb cf needs to be formatted as fat16 & now my cf shows up on computer as canon dc drive.

Nothing to worry since hack works like charm.  :) But just wana know more reg details of loading it correctly.I'm about to mod couple of my friends' Powershots too.

Wishlist-

1]Just like iso hack, can u hack shutter speed too? Precise in camera Long exposures more than 30 secs in bulb mode viz 60, 80, 120sec upto 5 min. So no need to pack/carry crappy 555 timer based intervalometer[& its battery] for night photography & startrails

2]Currently only 3 custom pic.styles are supported. Can we have Custom profiles like 40D which remember  other settings like mode/metering/iso etc?
