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.

Hi, i am newbie to this website.  i am searching how to upload the 1.0.4.0 to my G10. all i can understand from here is they dump their own G10's firmware.  but can someone tell me how to write the 1.0.4.0 to my G10? i really want to ungrade my firmware of G10, is it good? thank you for your help.  i got the 1.0.4.0 firmware from here, but it's in .bin format, don't know how to use it.

Practically speaking, you cannot upgrade your camera firmware with a firmware dump from another camera. Firmware updates are used to find the information needed to port CHDK. To update the original Canon firmware, you need an official update from Canon.

Canon does not issue firmware updates for most firmware revisions, which probably means the changes are minor, or related to specific hardware revisions.

Thanks for the reply. but the canon doesn't provide the update firmware.  all we can get is the 1.0.2.0 version, and the update files.  can we just change something with the files, so that we can upgrade the camera to the 1.0.4.0 firmware instead?

No.

Unless there is some specific problem that you've identified in the old version, which is fixed in the new version, there is no reason to upgrade. If there is such a problem, then maybe canon service will upgrade it for it.

Yeah, I agree... for many of us it is not simple to just blindly send 50+ to somebody just to see if something could be arranged.

On the other hand, there is interest. So if somebody actually does it, many of us would be willing to pay a sum to make it available.

What about setting up something in one of the freelance websites were you can post a project, people bid on it and it is all managed through the site itself. Although i realize that might not work since we will be making small contributions towards the final sum and not paying it all out of our pockets...

I guess, it is time for me to sell my G10 and buy a G11/12... See no other alternative as this is coming to a dead end.
