ha.  of course the one detail i thought important, wasn't.  i mentioned the .fi2 file because i noticed earlier that without that file, there is no 'firmware update' entry on the camera menu.  i was trying various ways with the German version before your help above.

ok- your q's: started with 4GB Sandisk w/ single partition, then tried 2GB Kingston (all FAT16).  Formatted in the camera, to start, but also tried using SDM Installer and the two applescripts listed on the mac faq.  Locked card after each install attempt, turned camera on with play/review button (but tried regular on/off, too, for kicks).  SDM and manual method were single partition; the 2 applescripts used a dual partition.  Tried both manual and app/scripted methods of making SD card bootable.  osx 10.5.8.

None of the recommended procedures resulted in any response from the camera; not even the 'firmware update' menu entry appearing. Is there any advantage to using a PC for this? (dumb question?)  i so want to make this work, dangit

The only advantage to using a PC is that I know it works and there are more people here using PC's that might be able to help you.

One other kind of important thing - did you check to make sure your camera actually has firmware ersion 1.01c.   Close does not count with firmware versions.

got the old PC fired up here; will try again later today.  and i double-checked with two tools: fw v. 1.01 rev3.00, which as i understand = 1.01c, correct?

and for titbb, try using cameraversion: http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CameraVersion  if you're on a PC.  i forget what i used on the mac.

waterwingz, what method do you recommend using on the PC?  manual or autoboot; card size vs partition, etc.  your knowledge is appreciated.

There is no ps.fi2 file available right now  so you can only do autoboot.  I'd recommend a 2G or 4G card so that you don't have to play with partitions right away .   Cardtricks or sdminste.exe should both work fine for your needs.

UPDATE : Built it - no idea if it works but here you go  CHDK load for IXUS200 SD980 firmware 1.01c

So far 10 people have downloaded this. Two have tried to use the ps.fi2 method to start,  only to find that there is no ps.fi2 file available.   It would be good to hear for somebody else about whether this loads or not using the "Card Lock" method.

(Note that the link won't work in a quoted text box - go back to the original post if you want to download.)

"no pictures.  card locked." each time.  no luck using a PC, CardTricks, 2GB then 4GB card, twice each.  tried removing the changelog just in case.  no go.  

I might have been two of those 10; i downloaded on 2 computers.

anyway, ack.

The update firmware will never be available without a ps.fi2 file - it sounds like you are confusing the two methods ?

Not much I can do if without having the camera at this point.  The beta build should have at least loaded based on earlier posts in this forum.  One last thing we can try - I'll do a version that turns on the camera LED's at the very start of the boot loader process - which should confirm that the image was placed correctly on the card and the card correctly formatted.

I'm sorry, i was a bit short in my reply. The autoboot with locked card had no ' chdk' response.
Just got no pictures notice with Card Locked. CHDK wouldn't show up, not even when i went to normal mode.
