Hello to all,

I've been trying to get chdk work for a many days now, and I would need some help...

First of all, I'm not able to see the firmware version of my Ixus 200 IS, ver.req or vers.req
trick does'nt seem to work on my cam. exiftool says Firmware Revision : 1.01 rev 3.00.

Automatic boot does'nt work eather. But I can run chdk by "firmware update".  It ask me if
I want to update from 1.0.1.0 -> 1.0.0.0. After that I see chdk splash screen for a few seconds
and the camera turns off. I have tried few versions of chdk that I found, and one version hangs
the whole camera.

Does someone know what I'm doing wrong? Should these beta versions buut up at all?

Just a THANKS for all the determination and creativity that went into this port so far!
I got it working on my 200IS which luckily still has the early firmware.

Obviously I can not use many of the scripts that I have on a S3IS, and it is not clear to me what would be the best way to go with this port in order to do exposure bracketing for HDR processing. The shots will later be stitched as 360 panoramas, so I would like to have the camera do 5-or-so bracketed shots each time it is rotated to position- possibly using USB/wireless for remote/hands off.

Sure would appreciate pointers here since I'm still green at CHDK. Should I go with LUA over BASIC for more speed and functionality?

This is all very inspiring and exciting stuff, really, it just makes me grin :-]

Is there a location for SD980 1.01C code?  All of the links I can find here seem to be dead ends?  

tnx

Is anyone still working on this?  There seemed to be sufficient interest and skills..?

Also, as others have noted, the beta links no longer function.  Does anyone have the files so that we could repost them?

Alternatively, if someone would send them to me, i'd greatly appreciate it.  I also am having trouble finding my fw version, but i've just started, really, altho' i've spent several hours researching CHDK.

I will pledge to match the $15 offered by others in this thread for an official autobuild for the SD980/IXUS200.


i'll just add that the function i'm most interested in right now is the intervalometer, followed closely by usb remote.  If anyone has options of alternatives, please let me and others know.

thanks in advance.

Here you go - source code : IXUS200 SD980 firmware 1.01c

Thanks - but as I have posted elsewhere,  at $10/hr the average port is probably worth over $1000.  And you won't find many software developers interested in working for $10/hr.   But the gesture is appreciated by some of us.

If there is anybody with a 1.01c firmware SD980 willing to test the beta,  I will rebuild it against the current source.  If it works fabulously,  I'll even submit it as a patch file for the autobuild server.  But if the beta is bad,  I don't have a SD980 and am not really interested in trying to debug another camera remotely. Sorry.

UPDATE : Built it - no idea if it works but here you go  CHDK load for IXUS200 SD980 firmware 1.01c  <does not work

Thank you so much for that, waterwingz, and i fully understand and appreciate the time:cost factor.  In my work i frequently get the client who is surprised at how much it costs for me to do something that they consider simple, tho' they are unable to do it themselves. ::) 

Unfortunately, no workie for me- on a mac, i unarchived the new load using stuffit instead of the osx utility, then tried both manual and SDM Installed card-loading methods.

one thing; i did have to add the ps.fi2 file from this German chdk page: http://chdk.bplaced.net/content/download/summary/8/33.html  Adding this file enables the (otherwise missing) 'firmware update' menu entry in the camera.  Upon choosing the update, i get the black screen requiring the battery removal process.

could the borrowed ps.fi2 file have something to do with it not working?  if not, i guess i'll give up.

thanks much again for your efforts, waterwingz!  :)





attaching the found build from which i used the .fi2 file:

So many questions here - the file you downloaded might be fine but you did not prepare the card correctly.  What size SD card did you use ?   Single or dual partition ?  Did you set it up as bootable ?  Did you move the card lock tab to the locked position ?

A ps.fi2 file is just the bootdisk.bin file encoded differently.   So what you downloaded had nothing to do with what I posted and tells us unfortunately nothing.

I have 101C afaik, i can check it.

Just need to figure out how to format the sdcard properly.

Edit: used the http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CHDK_for_Dummies#I_have_the_camera_already.21 method
no response whatsoever from the camera regarding the FW
