G10 Porting Process

This is in the very early stages. So far I have identified the firmware vesion of my G10 as 1.03b ( Purchased May 09 ) and performed a dump using the UDumper method.

I have checked out the sources from svn and performd an initial build for g10/103b using g9/100i as a reference.

I haven't yet updated the wiki with this firmware version. Do the mods have a preference to where I should upload the file?

Regards,
Andrew.

Upload it zshare or rapidshare or something or anywhere like that and post a link in http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,288.180.html

I'm sure someone will add it to the drop.io repository.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Planetmarshall,

Any progress? I've been waiting for a port for the G10 for a while - not clever enough to do it myself!

Hi,
the firmware version of my G10 is GM1.04A.
Can I help somehow? I've got a Mac and I'm not familiar with any programming, though.

Maybe some people are wondering why CHDK would be useful for the well equipped G10.
Well, I definetely could need CHDK on my camera for these reasons:
- The exposure time in AV-mode is limited to 1 second. In twilight situations, one second is too short. A longer exposure time is useful if you want to shoot a series of photos using AEP (aperture bracketing) for HDR.
- Sometimes I would like to delete the RAWs and keep just the JPEGs. This is very handy if storage space is running short.
- I miss the zebra function in live view.

These are only some points that I noticed in the first days using the camera.

hi!
i just registered to this forum to say that i will probably get the g10 (i am still considering the lx3) in the coming days.. a lot of ppl would be pleased if such a project went into fruition :)

i agree w/ olf regarding the scripts to add. + shorter exposure
best regards

oh and what about 5 frames auto-braketing? or even 7. :)

If there is a CHDK port to the G10, it will have pretty much the same features as CHDK has on other cameras.

Hi!

I'm trying to port CHDK to the G10, Firmware Version 104a (Dump available here: http://www.zshare.net/download/619706843eb7a2de/).

I'm somehow stuck, I hope someone can point me the right direction... :(

I already identified the LEDs and adjusted the wiki accordingly.

The boot process is fine in copy_and_restart() in loader/g10/resetcode/main.c - but startup() in platform/g10/main.c is never called :(

I've uploaded loader/g10/resetcode/main.c, platform/g10/sub/104a/makefile.inc and the disassembled boot- and restart-code of the firmware here: http://www.zshare.net/download/6197123834e2f819/

Anyone got any idea what I'm doing wrong?

OT: since I'm a non-windows user and couldn't find any Unix-Makefile for udumper, I've created one that works with Linux and MacOSX, it's uploaded here: http://www.zshare.net/download/6197098749c82973/

OK, I got it, guys... :)

Both the instructions in the WIKI for installing the toolchain on MacOSX and gentoo are wrong... :(
Both don't enable interworking on ARM - after compiling the stuff on my own my code works fine... - I'll place some warning in the WIKI ASAP.

I've uploaded the complete working g10/loader-code here: loader.tar.bz2 - 0.00MB

More code will come soon (at least I hope so ;) )....
