It worked. It blinks very fast, but using another camera to record it and playing it frame by frame I can see it blinking 3 times.
Did it blink 3 times and then go to the regular Canon startup / menu stuff (i.e. camera works like it did before).  Did you see the CHDK logo for a few seconds if so ?

UPDATE : version with slower blink - please confirm the 3 blinks as its hard to see how that can happen in the code http://www.box.net/shared/yjj40591yz19bzppqum8

Blinking about 10x slower, so it definitely blinks 3 times, with autofocus lamp on, then camera stays frozen just like before. No other activity on LCD or any other LEDs.

Great - that helps a lot.  I'll do some digging - doing this without a camera to test with is painful.  As long as I can feed you updates to test,  I'll keep going.  This is not my first time through this by any means.

Beta 5 : this version should blink the AF led and yellow LED once and then boot the normal Canon software.

UPDATE :  voodoolady and I worked on this via IRC with no luck.  Time for some sleep and a fresh look tomorrrow.

Beta 6 : Found a couple of small things that might make a difference and changed the LED pattern.

Beta 7 : Rebuilt against latest trunk update - might have been some experimental stuff from my other projects interfering with the previous builds?  Changed the LED pattern again to help isolate the problem

Beta 8 : I'm afraid I might not be able to make this work.  So I've taken out all the LED blinking code and triple checked that the boot.c task is the same as the 1.00c code (except where addresses have shifted).  I'm out of ideas at this point if this does not boot.

Here's my last try for now - let me know if it works ?

Beta 8a :  same code but with boot() module following current coding convention rather than the older style used with the 1.00C port.    I put the AF Led blink back at the start to so that you know it at least loads.

Frankly, I need more help here - at least 3 people have been downloading these beta releases but only voodoolady has been helping out by providing feedback.

Hey, good job, Waterwings!! This time you've done it, beta 8 boots into CHDK! You posted the beta 8a version while I was writing my test results, I'll test them now, but here's what I got with beta 8.

Camera boots normally with chdk spalsh screen. All the menus are there, but with a constant message on the screen (message from the normal firmware, behind the CHDK menu) of "Memory card error". What I tested so far is:

On playback mode, even though there are pictures on the mem card, the camera doesn't display any of them, just a black screen with the mentioned error message.

If I boot on record mode, the screen starts black with the error message, and the lens won't extend until I half-press the shutter button. Then I have everything you would expect from a camera with chdk (normal menu, alt menu, button, zoom, etc behavior), but with the error message on the top portion of the display, and the inability to take pictures.

So I tried downloading any script that would take pictures to test how writing on the card would be. Whenever I select "Load script from file...", the Script selection window is broken somehow. It's like it's transparent, as in I can see the script options of the previous menu behind the new window's frame. Thus I can't select any file (even when pressing down and select a few times, hoping the file selection was still there, just not visible). Even when renaming the new script to "default.bas" the camera would still just display the default script message.

Then I changed any value on the settings to see if it would stick. I checked the "Clear videoparams on Start" box, but that setting returned to the default (unchecked) value on a new boot. Lastly I tried removing the SD card, unlocking it and putting it back in (without shutting the camera off), but it didn't change anything.

Does the CHDK logo appear right away when the LCD lights up or after two or three seconds ?
