    You could always try the "squeaky wheel" method. Just add on a post to this thread every day saying something like "Are we there yet?" "Are we there yet"? "Are we there yet"? "Are we there yet"? ... Until they stop the car and tell you to pipe down! But you don't, and they finally give in and finally put in a coordinated effort to getting CHDK on your camera. :)



    If you haven't something interesting to say ...SHUT UP, at least I'm trying to do something to port CHDK in a Dryos camera, that's more than 90% of the people in this forum is posting. I was only asking for some developers help to continue.

    Once compiled and loaded in a bootable sd card, the camera doesn't turn on, I mean, It does nothing. I had to remove battery in order to get back to normal.
    Does anyone know the minimun code that should be written in boot.c in order to test if it works?

    I was lucky to borrow the body of IXIS860 for one day...
    You can see the result :) - YouTube - IXUS 860 IS CHDK

    But I can't continue because the battery is dead and I have no charger.

    Hmm. I charged IXUS700 Li-Ion battery from 5V power source via small resitor (200-300 mA current limit) with continuous battery voltage monitoring (maximum is 4.1V, absolute maximum is 4.2V). When voltage reaches 4.1V, battery must be disconnected (~60-70% of full charge).

    --> The camera got hanging, so it reacts to your code, but I expect that this is not the way you want it to be...

    --> Would be very nice to know indeed, is there anybody out there?
