@waterwingz:
Thanks for the update ;-)

@Greg:
If you could provide a firmware dump of version 1.00, i'm sure someone could port chdk easily now that we have a working port for 1.01.

He has 1.00C judging by his post - the same version Radup was working on at the start of this thread.  

UPDATE : if I can get a valid ROM dump, I'll do the port at some point (unless someone else is happy to do it first) but I'm on vacation for the next couple of weeks and away from my PC

Thanks for your responses..

I'm happy to follow instructions !! but need some hand holding I'm afraid.

I'm struggling to understand the relationship between the dump of my firmware and the "port" - presumably this is because the CHDK software for this camera is in Beta ?

I have no idea how to do a dump of the firmware...

I also confused about the relationship of the ""step one" of viewing the firmware version on the camera  which implies that the "vers file" is written to during this step... which I assume  is a pre-requisite for the bin bootfile file to work ....as it reads the ver file??

In which case.. wouldn't this need to be created in a different way because the type of camera (with its touch screen and all) that doesn't seem to accept the key press roll the finger thing as suggested in earlier posts.

Like I said - happy to follow instructions - and appreciate the expertise on the forum - fingers crossed I'll get this working :)

I'm currently travelling on vacation so can't manage a long explanation from my mobile device.  There is probably a valid firmware dump for your camera already but I can't check that easily while on the road.  If there is, then about the only thing you can do is wait for someone to convert the current port to work with your firmware version.

@Greg:
CHDK software needs some porting (or adjusting if you will) for every camera AND every firmware version due to some small differences in each firmware. So in order to get CHDK running on your camera/firmware setup you first of all need to determine your firmware version. Look in the WIKI for further information on that topic if you are interested e.g. in vers.req.
 
But you already know your firmware version and have noticed that there currently is no v1.00c adjusted port of CHDK software.

So in order to build it one would need a firmware dump of the v1.00c firmware. If you want to provide one have a look at the wiki "How to dump firmware" to get an brief overview on how you could achieve this. I think you want to use Cardtricks. Also look have a look through this thread. Someone lately dumped an other version. So maybe there you get more input on how he did it.
Firmware dump results in a ~8mb file. Upload it here.

Many Thanks All..
Found the correct CHDK Software on the German site mentioned through the thread
http://chdk.bplaced.net/content/download/viewcategory/8.html

I should be OK now

Thanks again

@Greg :  as we worked on the later firmware versions of the SD980, it was not clear how well the 1.00C version in the CHDK-DE server actually worked.   Please report back here with what you find.  When I get a moment to create a version for the CHDK sever, your feedback and help testing will be essential

Thanks waterwingz. :D... I was already wondering why the build was not in the Autobuild server releases. So much effort was given for the 100C version, would be a waste not to have it in Autobuild. I had to dig it up from here http://chdk.bplaced.net/content/download/summary/8/33.html

As I do have two IXUS 200/S980 - one 100C and one 101C model. I thus can perform a functionality comparison test easily. Also have Gentled USB cable and model 2 for functions-test over RC pulses in.

So, I'll await the 100C on autobuild then will do comparison tests.

Did a remote shutter test. It worked for IXUS200 and not for the IXUS100. Did the test on IXUS 100 with SDM and the shutter worked, that maybe a good hint to fix it ? Will retest with some other settings on the IXUS 100. Will do more tests if there is an autobuild version for the IXUS 100 v100c but will not polute this thread with that info then.

OK, now I'm on to more IXUS00/SD980 tests, and hope to speed-up the time between pictures by tweaking some values.

Posted in the wrong forum for the IXUS100 comments ?   Regardless,  you might want to look at doing the port to 1.00C yourself ?  With the new sig finder and CHDK-PT its a much easier !
