    Found this in my box.net deleted file.  Sometimes you just get lucky.

    ixus200_sd980-101c-0.9.9-r1206-Beta10.zip

    Let us know if it works - seems strange that the autobuild version did not run for you.

    @gbit - what does ACID say about your firmware version. It's usually very reliable. See http://www.zenoshrdlu.com/acid/acid.html

    Well I appreciate the help but it appears like I am on firmware 1.0.1d :(.

    Can I dump this firmware for yall? If so, how difficult/long may it take to bring CHDK over? Normally I would not ask such a question as I understand that no one pays yall for doing this great work, but I purchased this camera thinking it would have 1.0.1c on it and for a business project that has an approaching deadline. If I can't make use of this camera I will have to purchase a different camera.

    As soon as I get to work I will follow this guide http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Canon_Basic/Card_Setup as someone here earlier in the thread did this to get the full dump on 1.0.1c. Whether I keep this camera or not at least we will have the firmware for 1.0.1d.

    Here is a firmware dump of 1.0.1d! I hope porting it over to this firmware is a relatively easy exercise since the work has already been accomplished on 1.0.1c. The firmware dump is 8,124kb in size and the cbdumper.log file says

    Started
    FF810000 dry
    done

    I'm backlogged for at least the next two months with stuff I've already committed to doing so I can't help you here.   Standard CHDK disclaimer available here : CHDK porting status

    Thanks for letting me know waterwingz. I will get started on it this weekend then. (If anyone is also interested and has more experience then please let me know.) I will be posting my progess as I go along if I have issues and can't find the documentation to help me get through it. There is so much documentation though I feel like that is likely not going to be much of an issue :).

    Also in your opinion if I follow the documentation in these forums and use your CHDK-PT program, do think this is something that I can do in a weekend? I've done some basic programming in C++, Java, and mostly PHP.

    A port between firmware versions if you really know what you are doing takes 4 to 8 hours.   I would expect it will take you longer but two 10 hour days might do it.   Just a guess.  

    I'll keep an eye on the #chdk IRC channel - faster help that the forum.


    UPDATE :  I attached a file that should help you with the CHDK=PT conversion

    CHDK for firmware 1.0.1d (BETA 2)

    I completed this just before midnight and so far it appears to work just fine on my camera. Although when I am in the CHDK menu while in the P Mode it appears like the menu sometimes disappears randomly. The menu works much better while in playback mode from my experience. Not sure if this is an issue with 1.0.1c beta as well or just my port to 1.0.1d.

    Also the estimation on how long this would take was pretty close, I'd say it took me about 8 hours and even 10 if you include the time I wasted on figuring out ps.fi2.. and then the issues I had with using a SDHC card to boot the dang thing.. I have a lot of 2gb SD cards as well though for testing & older cameras. Although that addresses file provided by waterwingz did save me some time as well.

    Thanks to waterwingz for the awesome work and assistance, as well as relayp over in IRC.

    Here is the file, and like usual I take no responsibility for the damage or it may or may not cause. :)

    Wow - congratulations.  I think you are actually the first "newbie" to complete a port from one firmware version to another of the same camera using CHDK-PT !

    Although when I am in the CHDK menu while in the P Mode it appears like the menu sometimes disappears randomly. The menu works much better while in playback mode from my experience. Not sure if this is an issue with 1.0.1c beta as well or just my port to 1.0.1d.
    This tends to be a issue for all versions of CHDK on all (recent) cameras.  A limitation of CHDK's ability to work with the Canon firmware to share the screen.

    Did you also use philmoz's new sigfinder ?  There were a bunch of things that it found in the 1.01C code that really should be checked.
