Thank you. Now that I read the FAQ more closely, I know a fw upgrade has to be started manually - my last camera (Pentax Optio S) behaved differently. Also it didn't pretend a false fw version unless persuaded (vers.req) - I also have 1.00C as I know now.

To make up for my former mistake I updated the Wiki about that accelerometer.

Hi NooB here, maybe a dumb question but I just got the alpha version loaded to my camera. But it wont let me go from CHDK menu to shoot without shutting off my camera. Any suggestions.  (First canon camera, first time using CHDK) Very cool stuff though
SD780 IS and SX210 IS

That's because it's not implemented yet.
PS:
Thanks Harpo for your efforts!

How about shoot-half + set?.  I'm thinking if people have already set up the positioning and framing of their camera, this key combo should do nothing to change it (if they have AEL and AFL set).  I don't recall any functions in the chdk menus that require shoot-half + set.  Zoom+display seems a bit fiddly because you might accidentally change the zoom, which of course disengages AFL and AEL. 
I don't think any combo involving half-shoot to be a good idea, since it would cause the lens to extend if you are in "play mode". I like to adjust every option first, then change to "rec mode".

I liked fe50's idea, it's a single button, so you don't need two hands, and it's intuitive. The only downside would be if you first enter Canon's menu, then you see CHDK's OSD. So it would be a menu over another menu, it could get confusing. But that's a minor annoyance, since you could just press menu once, then long-press.

Aren't there any other cameras without the "print" button with CHDK working?

I'll answer the various questions above.  

I agree to what you say about the half-shoot solution.  It does work but causes interface issues.  ALT is used in many places.  :(  I'm thinking either making long-menu or long-display enter the ALT mode.  I'll check out the other cameras and see if any have no-print buttons.

As for the questions of time lines...   I think intial work will be a couple to three more weeks (provided life doesn't get in the way).   After that it's hard to say.  This is my first port and I imagine bugs persist for a while.

As for the firmware it is very young and not worth testing with at all.  It was simply a proof that I'm actually working on it.  LOL    I'll post a newer firmware tommorow that actually does stuff....

Today is a sad day for me... I stopped being lazy just to find out my camera has firmware 1.00b. Tested today's pre alpha anyway, and nothing. Camera just turns off, and won't turn back on until batteries are removed. I know there is at least 1 version of CHDK that work on firmwares with a different letter (my old camera, SD1000), but I don't think I should keep my hopes up, right?
I don't know anything about porting, and until I graduate in December, I won't even try to learn. Maybe by then there will be an easier way to extract the firmware other than by blinking.
In any case, keep it up
