Quote... but there are many ways it could do this.Ah yes, of course you're right. I'm getting sloppy... And doesn't a cold reboot actually start the bootcore at FFFF0000 rather than directly the FW at FF810000/FFC0000 ?
... but there are many ways it could do this.
BTW, in my A710:PostLogicalEventToUI(0x1132,0) - camera shutdowns with "replace batteries message"PostLogicalEventToUI(0x1133,0) - red battery icon starts blinkingPostLogicalEventToUI(0x1135,0) - red battery icon stops blinkingSome "magic values" (0x1132, 0x1133) found in sub_FFC1B2DC.
Wasn't 0x1134 enough to get rid of the icon blinker, btw? I haven't tried any of this yet.

CHDK's battery indicator could of course reflect the value of 0x54510 (e.g. by changing color of voltage/icon/percentage, whichever selected) and no information would be lost to the user when battery warning override is active.
Which brings up the question: What's actually wrong with the low-battery icon? Isn't it a useful sign of the upcoming shutdown? The CHDK battery indicator does not provide such information -- it may happily be in the "green", despite the fact that the battery is bad and cannot withstand any further load. But the camera OS knows better, as it has seen battery lows under load, and based on that, perhaps analyzed how reliable the particular battery is. (Of course, there might/should be differences between the models related to the battery type, e.g. AA vs Li-ion.)
The difference in the battery thresholds with/without CHDK is a whole different issue that would be really interesting to resolve -- for the affected cameras, obviously.
