OK, i suppose that is what was needed to start reverse engineering the firmware.

Now the T2i/550D is out that solves many of the shortcomings of the 500D. Is there still sufficient interest by disgruntled 500D owners (like myself) here in doing cracking this camera?

The 500D has been a very expensive camera and not everyone out there is rich so let's hope there is more than enough interest. My interest is very high, at the very least. Hopefully, as people learn of the possibilities that a hack of Canon's crappy update may mean, the interest will keep increasing.

Well I'm definitely keen for a firmware update to fix these video issues. I have a few friends who are also interested [all be it not as interested as me, as they pretty much don't use the video feature 99.9% of the time]. So yeah there is definitely a lot of interest out there for CHDK firmware updates. Hopefully before July, as I'd like to get some good quality video footage of the wedding from this camera.

Regards,
Troz

I'm keen on a firmware update fix for the T1i too, especially for the manual controls in video mode.

I posted a reward for this functionality at http://nextsprocket.com/tasks/manual-controls-during-video-mode-in-canon-t1i-s-firmware .

If you guys want to see this firmware done, feel free to contribute a reward too

There is someone named "Jonny Petts" working on a 500D hack in the UK:
