If you carefully read CHDK for Dummies (http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CHDK_for_Dummies), all will be revealed. Use the software - Card Tricks - to make your card bootable as well as transferring CHDK but... replace DISKBOOT.BIN with MrSpoon's latest version found on page 1 of this A470 forum. Dont forget to Lock your card - CHDK will start and still write to the card if needed. Switch CHDK On or Off with the PRINTER button and use MENU and the other buttons as usual.

Works great so far (ignoring some menu glitches).
Finally I have manual shutter speeds below 1s and manual focus :)
Thx again!

Okay, I'm starting on 101b now, shouldn't take too long. I'll start 102c again afterwards, I learnt a lot the first time round, it needs doing again properly :-[

Well said MrSpoon, everyone should be grateful you've taken this on. As I'm a bit more clued in to the whole CHDK project (and useless at Coding) I'll try to field the general questions and let you concentrate on refining the Code.

I've posted a list of resources so that newcomers can find most of the info needed. I'm now pouring over the Scripts - very useful and I actually undertand the Code. When I first learned BASIC on a 16k 'snot-box', I never could've imagined it one day running on a Camera?

Okay so I've brought the 101b port up to the point the 102c port is at, bugs and all, it's attached.

I'm doing revision now but I'll finish both ports off eventually...

EDIT: Just for clarity, the attached file is for A470 v1.01b, fixed and with video/SDHC support.

Just a mention that the most recent A470-101b version at least boots on my A470-101a as well.
I'll check thru features later and mention if anything too odd shows up. Looking good!
Thank you MrSpoon, you rule.

Boots well on my a470-101b, I'll test the features right away (the menu bug is still present).
